Grant may not be the answer!! I hope he is though but I know Gottfried wasn't!
Basketball fans who think that preseason polls matter. Yeah those matter so much. Fact is their team was a bubble team year before, and weren't this year all while increasing their regular season win totals and conference win totals. Usually that's called improvement. But yeah he must suck. Do I think he's a great coach, no, do I think he's better than a lot of people think on here, of course. They sucked and weren't even relevant for 5 successive years, but now you're friends are pissed because they made 2 straight NCAA tourneys, and increased their totals across every category from the year before. Yet they are pissed because of a preseason poll which doesn't take into account new players, team chemistry etc. Guess how much the preseason polls matter in getting an NCAA bid------Zero!
Just a day in the life, I'm narrating the scene
Not saying our present coach(?) is the answer,but CMG needed to go. Lazy is an
understatement. A friend of mine's wife was at a girls night out where CMG's wife
was in attendance. She said they were here for 3-4 yrs and on to bigger things (I
assume the ACC or PRO). His arrogance, laziness, self esteem was reflected in
his mannerisms and rolled over to his teams not achieving max production--esp
the last 2-3 yrs as coach.
Pretty good pick for many reasons. Don't be surprised to hear a bomb shell explode from Raleigh after the Wolfpack is eliminated from the trounament.
Watch this highlight and start at the 5 minute mark if you are in a hurry. Coach grant's team scored to get within one with 19 seconds to go. We have 2 timeouts at this point. We let Creighton inbound the ball and let them run the clock to 8.7 seconds before we fouled. Grant inbounds and brings the ball across half court and calls timeout with 4.7 seconds to go in order to draw up a play one would think. However we inbound the ball let 2 seconds run off and use another timeout, which as a result afforded us a catch and shoot. GRANT BLEW THIS GAME. He is a poor game manager and the one time in four years he was on the big stage he rips the chance of victory from his team due to his poor game mangement skills. Watch the video and see for yourself.

Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear.
