RE: NC State to fire Gottfired at end of season
Dayton has good defensive stats too. Please don't forget that when you're considering the current situation at State where they're needing that badly right now. They need somebody that going to get stops. And that's not a knock on Keatts at all either because he's been great overall (and we all love him as our coach!) even though this year's team is more offense than defense. Miller is the obvious choice for the State job. Keatts may get a good look though or offered if others decline.

As far as Gottfried goes, it sucks that they're putting that out there like that-I like him. Mark Armstrong is just doing his job here and is a good guy too. They should have at least waited it out for the man! Not fair at all to him and his family!! What if they beat Carolina at home on Wednesday? That would be interesting to see the press conference.

Archie Miller would be a fantastic hire by NCSU.

One intriguing name at the mid-major level will be Darrin Horn.

Gottfried is a bad coach, but talent is not their problem. It would not surprise me to see them beat Carolina on Wednesday. DSJ is outstanding and likely a lottery pick, and I've seldom seen anyone more underutilized than Abu. I feel sorry for him that he chose NCSU, because he has the talent to be a first round pick in the NBA. I can't speak to his work ethic, but I look at BeeJay Anya and feel confident that Gottfried isn't pushing his players and holding them accountable.

FWIW, Keatts has not gone unnoticed at NCSU:

My neighbor at work is a huge NCSU guy, and has been asking me about Keatts for a bit now. He's all over their boards too. Says the consensus of their fans is Archie 1, Keatts 2.

Hopefully Debbie will check with Calipari first.

Haha. Always amusing to me that they think they can just get any other coach! i guess it's better to aim high than low. But eventually you become "Always the brides maid and never the bride"

Brides maid? If they're being honest, I think State is just hoping for an invitation to the wedding. Watching the mail box like a hawk to make sure Gary Williams doesn't steal their mail.

RE: NC State to fire Gottfired at end of season
Current poll at State Fans Nation asks 2nd choice of four coaches who aren't Archie Miller asking who they would prefer.

Keatts 47% with 37 votes
Andy Enfield USC - 26% with 20 votes
Joe Dooley FGCU - 15% with 12 votes
Will Wade VCU - 12% with 9 votes.

Regardless if Keatts goes to NC State, it shows he is on the radar of some teams that could easily lure him away. I just hope Jimmy is as proactive on the next hire as he was for Keatts. Not sure if an assistant can step up and take the helm or not. My only hope is that we continue with a coach in the mold of Keatts, who comes from the Pitino tree of full court pressure defense and the run/defend/win philosophy. We have players who came for this system and who fit in this system. Our priority should be continuity to keep up our proven winning style, and also to keep players from transferring out should Keatts leave.

Maybe he doesn't leave this year, next year or ever. But the high level interest in him certainly means we should prepare for the worst, which could be a departure after this season.
