No offense to NCSU, but that would be a step back.

Shouldn't be in any danger of him going. The article states that NCST was talking to him about the AD job prior to him getting the extension/raise. Title of the article is "Tanner plans to be at Carolina for the long haul" so I think we're good.

I hate to be that guy...but...were you aware that NC State is actually ranked higher than we are in the latest Directors Cup standings?

Meaning their overall athletics program is actually considered better than ours is...and they just...arguably...upgraded their basketball coach.

They are ranked 11th and we are 14th:

1. Stanford
2. Wisconsin
3. Ohio State
4. Michigan
5. Penn State
6. UNC
7. USC
8. Kentucky
9. Oregon
10. UCLA
11. NC STATE
12. Texas
13. Notre Dame
14. South Carolina

I'm also not sure when the last time any of you were actually on the NC State Campus but I can assure you that it is BIG TIME. The nicest/largest campus I've been on...seriously. The new engineering/centennial campus is absolutely phenomenal. USC has nothing even close. Their student center/bookstore...their Russel House...blows ours out of the water. Again...it isn't even close.

My son just took the tour this last spring break...he is sold. His number 2 is South Carolina.

Believe me...I am Gamecock born and raised. Born in Columbia, went to USC, met my wife there, own a parking spot, donors, etc. but bagging on NC State has simply got to be based in ignorance. Its impressive. If you don't know you don't know but NC State is a big time job.

Good to see we have Ray, Dawn, Frank and Will for a good while. Now time to do something about the baseball coach.

NC State is not a big time job. It's a second fiddle job to North Carolina in that state. Their athletic facilities aren't even close to ours and we have much better fan support here. I agree about the campus being amazing there, but let's not act like NC State is some kind of dream job.

Yeah our athletic support and resources are on a bit higher level than theirs, but it is a fine institution. It would be most unusual for an AD to go from here to there if we wanted them to stay.

NCSU is his alma mater. I wouldn't think he'd leave us for them, but you never know.

I'd be upset if he had left us when he was baseball coach. Just being honest, as of today, I wouldn't be at all upset if he departed as AD. I hope my opinion changes. I also hope my opinion is misguided.

Which is, one reason, why I have always thought NC State should be one of the schools the SEC should go after if we were to ever expand. In fact, I think they are a better fit than Mizzou.

But that is a totally different conversation.

Default Re: NC State looking at Tanner for AD

I actually consider NC State pretty much the same as USC. Middle tier in a solid conference. Same way I see us pretty much the same as Miss St. It kind of sucks, but it is what it is.

As far as Tanner, and not to seem like a jerk, but why? All he's done so far is continue projects Hyman started and made a questionable football hire and a baseball hire that is well entrenched on the hot seat. Partly not his fault since Hyman did such a good job with long term plans (I still don't get the hate. I thought he did fantastic.).

They also have two national titles in men's basketball, 10 conference titles in men's basketball, and 7 or 8 conference titles in football.

Just saying.
