Web Run: State still not ready for prime time

At some point, I'd like to see Herb Sendek pop his head out of that daytight compartment he's always talking about and say the words N.C. State fans have been longing to hear since the day Lorenzo Charles dunked home Dereck Whittenburg's airball in Albuquerque 23 years ago.

"Part of that is Sendek's fault. He has made it a point to treat every game in the same low-key manner, to not let either himself or his players get caught up in looking too far into the future. It's a sound approach, in most cases. But there are certain times when you have to consider the big picture and set the bar high, especially at a place where it's been so low for so long. And as the disappointment among the 19,722 red-clad fans as they headed toward the exits before the final TV timeout will attest, some games are more important than others." - Fayetteville Observer's Brett Friedlander on the ongoing pattern of NC State not getting up for the big rivalry games.

North Carolina blew out Herb Sendek's birthday candles last night, and about an hour later N.C. State fans blew out of the building. The game hadn't ended, at least on a massive clock reading 6:19, but the real game was over long before the 95-71 score hit the books. This showdown turned out like all the others since Roy Williams put on a tie and tightened the knot against the Wolfpack. As the Kansas boss, he won all five starts against State. Returning to his Carolina beginnings three years ago, Williams started a streak that reached six straight last night and reached deep into the Wolfpack psyche. Read More
