"So why did O'Brien get the job offer and Navy's Paul Johnson didn't? This one will be debated for a while because so many people were high on Johnson, including Wendell Murphy. It is important to know that Johnson didn't sour on the Wolfpack, and it didn't appear to be a money issue. Long story short, the key figures who make the calls like O'Brien better. There were concerns with what style of offense Johnson would bring, what the staff would look liked, how that could be recruited against. Navy's recent steroid scandal also popped up on the radar, but not for the simple reason of a couple of kids getting busted. Instead, the timing of the announcement and tests raised a few eyebrows." - 850 The Buzz's Joe Ovies

N.C. State's football team had a propensity for fouls in recent seasons. That's one of the reasons Chuck Amato doesn't coach there anymore. But even with him gone, State is still tripping over the rules. This time it has broken an unwritten one. In moving to replace Amato, State has raided a fellow Atlantic Coast Conference school. It has hired Tom O'Brien away from Boston College. Read More

Degand, Harris anxious to play

It was in late March when word began spreading -- Iowa State men's basketball coach Wayne Morgan had been fired. Suddenly, point guard Farnold Degand was without a coach and without a home. This all changed after a call from basketball coach Sidney Lowe, and an official visit to Raleigh. Degand knew he belonged in a Wolfpack uniform. Degand joins forward Simon Harris as the two transfer students on N.C. State's basketball team. Harris, a Pittsburgh native, transferred from Elon University over the summer and is also the son of men's basketball assistant coach Larry Harris. According to NCAA regulations, transfers must sit out one year before they are eligible to participate in competition. This has been a tall order for Harris. Read More
