Wolfpack Announce MORE RECRUITING BLING !!!

For all of you who said Coach Dave’s Gianormous  Hindenburg Hangar PLUS the Fancy Jock Dorm were as WOW as WOW could be…. You Lose!   NC State’s headlong mad dash for POWER FIVE DOMINANCE is just getting reved-up with today’s announcement of:

A Palatial New Locker Room for future generations of Shadrachs.

One of my “spies on The Brickyard” sent me a copy of the most recent issue of TheWolfpacker.com newsletter telling the Pack’s rank/file that $$$$ is no obstacle when it comes to bedazzling “‘dem semi-literate 17 y/o future aerospace engineers and computer geniuses” No Siree Jimmy Veee.

NOTE:  That picture at the top is of the Penthouse Suite @ Caesar’s Palace which, according to my source, is “an approximation…. close enough”.

We’re guessing this was another of those “we had to promise Dave or he woulda never come here” thingies.   And here we thought it was “fly-fishing with my kids” or one of Kennel’s snazzy Made-In-Turkey scarves that sealed the deal.  Apparently not.  Those red&white striped scarves really are snazzy!

TheWolfpacker.com article does note that Frau Yow did NOT agree to implode the entire Murphy Center and start over, so Dave reluctantly agreed to “stay within the existing outer walls” but “completely re-do the interior”.  Any one with a good source for mahogany and rich Corinthian leather let Dave know ASAP.

Designers with extensive experience upfitting either High Dollar Las Vegas Strip Clubs or Macau Whorehouses should submit pics of their most extravagant work % of “Frau @ NC State”.

Strip Clubs

It seems only yesterday we were hearing about the Kardashian Splendor of The Murphy Center.  Actually it twelve years ago.  Time flies where you’re hiring /firing coaches every few years.  UNC can certainly identify with THAT.   I forget how many pool tables and foosball tables and hot tubs The Murphy Center had when it opened (once that issue with the not-to-code stairwells got reworked).   I recall some proud Wolfpack Clubber telling me “Arabian Shieks are coming over to tour it and take notes for their palaces….” ….. and now it’s “ho-hum…. whatcha done lately”.   Those future little Shadrachs were FIVE where Mr Murphy’s Playhouse was built.

Concern has been noted that with The Jock Dorm, The Hindenburg Hangar and now The Palatial Locker Room, will Official Recruiting Visits still be able to include a tour of The Hunt Library?

Coach Dave quickly noted “well sure, I suppose, if anyone ever wanted to…. where is it?”

When Nick and Urban hear about this Ultimate In Splendor Locker Room @ The Carter I would not be surprised to see either or both “decide to pursue new career directions”.  Who could blame them?   The Gridiron Juggernaut Being Assembled “on the Fairgrounds” is approaching Disney-esque in its enormity.   Whats next “a monorail” or maybe even “a grotto” !!

If at least one semi-literate 17 y/o happens to mention “if you had one” I can bet you Dave will be telling Bobby Purcell to “build me a monorail AND a grotto” or I’m leaving for (fill in the blank “sleeping giant”). …. As always… IT IS THEIR (WolfpackNation’s) $$$$ TO SPEND HOWEVER THEIR PRIORITIES DICTATE!

Dave’s got’em by the short hairs and that’s only after beating Larry just ONE time.   TO’B must be wondering what he shoulda demanded after Five-In-A-Row.   The mind reels….

When UNC’s Two-Headed Head Coach Larry/Gene hear about this latest Whoop-De-Doo you know Larry/Gene will be all over Bubba and John Montgomery for “we gotta have us one too”.   That’s a given.   Is Larry/Gene still stuck with just showin’em Mack’s Old Fish Tank ??  No wonder his’n are throwing those end zone picks. …. Grab for your wallets Blue Zoners!

I’m posting this on Friday around 1:45.   Lets figure 2-3 hours before Larry/Gene is “shakin’em down at Carolina just like Dave did.   Larry/Gene and Dave are trying to bedazzle the very same semi-literate 17 y/o future world-leaders.  Fall behind in The High $$$$ Arms Race and either could be fielding a team of walk-on Boy Scouts who can “probably read” but NOT benchpress-a-Buick.

You think THIS will be IT for awhile?  I’m guessing only Frau, Dave, Bobby Purcell…. and, of course, Kennel know for sure.

Have you read the Quirky re: The ACC Network?

You really should, you know.

Growing up in Eastern North Carolina. (Carteret County) About 35 miles from the Manger that Bob Kennel was born in. So, you know all good old boys have an out building next to the barn with a full kitchen and Bath and sometmes more than 1 large screen TV and plenty of tables for Pig Picking Saturdays for open dates and away games. This is just a higher level.

Now pass the cole slaw.

Its gonna be interesting when the dollars start to slow BobLee. You see it coming when Disney stock takes a hit from ESPN’s declining numbers. The stadium in Charlotte was 2/3 full due to outrageous ticket prices. Its interesting to note that the prices for Bama/Wiscy are lower than the UNC/USC game. We may well shortly see the expense side become as important as the revenue side. The stipends for athletes is certain to deliver major problems for a lot of programs very shortly. Spending money like it’s counterfeit rather than saving for that coming rainy day may prove to… Read more »

Tour the Hunt Library? Oh, hell yes.
I thought DH Hill was awesome when they showed me that. Good thing, too , since I just had taken the grand tour of the facilities in bowels of Reynolds.

BTW…just from my take…The Murphy Center is sweet, but the locker room design/layout does not impress. Then again, I am a perpetual wide-out that still needs his hand towel perfectly placed, and please, Mr. Trainer, when you wrap that wristband, make sure to end it just off the elbow.

Maybe some UNC players can come over and help us with the painting.

As Paul Harvey said….the REST of the Story. Thanks for sending me the Jacoby story with Dave Doren’s comments about “Ripping out the Lockers…..and State of the art renovations”. From all the research that one could do in a few minutes, there was $472,000 approved for the renovation as reported by both the University and the Triangle Business Journal in July. This is not exactly something that was hidden in a Kindergarten Spending Bill passed by the Legislature. It is being funded by Athletic Receipts. As one that has built new plants and upgraded plants and offices and facilities for… Read more »

Fret not. The Heels have the reward of $3.2million for their “performance” last night. I am sure that will find it’s way to the Hat/Chizik show. It is always a matter of keeping up with the “Joneses”, or is it Kardashians. Either way, if a Duke, UNC or WF wanted to spend that kind of money on their favorite sport and could raise the money, I am sure they would. UNC decided to raise it and spend it on PR people and attorneys. Everyone has their priorities.

Well, my new favorite quote “some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more serious than that” is even better timed than I thought. For some reason the Macau ho’house reference made me think of the movie The Electric Horseman when Wendall said; “I’m gonna get me a bottle of tequila and find me one of them Keno girls that can s**k the chrome off a trailer hitch and just kinda kick back.” Rich Corinthian Leather? Ricardo Montalban would be proud.

Well they have to do something since they don’t offer fake classes or have a Fats to give out rental cars.

Frank is right. BL, you are SMOKIN’. I was holding it together pretty well and not bothering a soul until I got to “…. or Macau Whorehouses” and I lost it. You truly are one “sick puppy” and I am so thankful you’re around to Make My Day (quote Harry Callahan).

With all respects to the late Stuart Scott…. “Better bring the butter boys ’cause BobLee IS ON A ROLL!”.

You really should take your last dozen or so columns and offer them in a leather-bound Collectors Edition. Dude, you are En Fuego.
