Direct from the Washington Post and then I will give you my take:
Mark Tuesday down as the day when the Gary Williams-Debbie Yow feud got real. Like, ugly and unpleasant and public and brutish and nasty and public and really, really real. The climax came during Yow’s N.C. State press conference Tuesday afternoon. “I don’t have a reputation across all men’s basketball as being difficult to work with,” Yow told chuckling reporters. “I have a reputation of not getting along with Gary Williams, who has tried to sabotage the search. C’mon. We all know that. Okay? So, whatever. It’s not a reputation, it’s Gary Williams out there doing his thing. Whatever.”
Williams responded via a statement, which I’m borrowing from the Baltimore Sun:“I haven’t talked to anyone — coach or athletic director — connected to the N.C. State search. I don’t have any interest in the N.C. State search, since I’m coaching at Maryland and working hard to run our program. Anyone who says I’ve had contact with a prospective coach or athletic director regarding this search isn’t being truthful.”
My take: Gary is traveling around the country looking to secure additional recruits for the upcoming years. Why in the world would he worry about damaging NC State. His only concern is to get Maryland back to a top ten 10 program and hs is certainly been on the right track track lately with the recent commitments to to the Terps. Perhaps one of the top players in the nation–Justin Anderson has verballed to Maryland for 2012. Next year Sterling Gibbs, Nick Faust, and Martin Breunig have signed with Maryland. Gary and the staff are still pursuing Desmond Hubert perhaps the best big left for 2011. Then there is the Jordan Williams situation he has to deal with.From my knowledge— terrapintimes.com he has been to Houston twice to recruit 6’9 250 lb Shaquille Cleare. Nah, I’m not buying. Much more on Koons Ford Terp Talk Thursday night.
