"More than anything, I believe strongly that Sendek has brought this cloud of controversy on himself. Anyone who ever takes a job coaching basketball on Tobacco Road has to understand first and foremost the lay of the land, then work within that framework as best he can to produce positive results. Coaching at State is about Xs and Os and recruiting and emphasizing academics and dozens of other issues. It is also about giving the fan base a sense of hope, in good times and bad. It is also about putting your best foot forward at all times so that when there is adversity, the support, the hope, is intact. It is not about being all things to all people, but it is about cultivating assets, especially when the biggest potential asset is a passionate support system of followers desperately wanting to feel good about the program. Sendek has failed miserably on that front. It's the biggest flaw on his resume. If he could project and instill a sense of hope, then a four-game losing streak wouldn't drag the program down the way this one did. If he could instill a sense of hope, there wouldn't be this uneasy truce that exists with an element of the fan base even when he's winning." - Winston-Salem Journal's John Delong
