79-228, that's the career head coaching record of new North Carolina State head coach Sidney Lowe. Remember when State was going to get Barnes or Calipari and make a huge headline grabbing hire that would reconfirm them as one of the top 10 college basketball programs? Uh yeah, that turned out well.
Lowe may, or may not, turn out to be a good hire - but he's certainly not the "splash" NCSU wanted to make. I also thought they'd end up best by hiring an up and coming midmajor coach like Tech did with Hewitt and Duke did with Coach K ... but an NBA washout was the direction they went. Just an all around bewildering process.
