I had an interview with N.C. State coach Gottfried recently by phone and he said the No.1 thing the program needed to do to catch up to Duke and UNC was "recruit, recruit, recruit." So far, so good -- the Wolfpack has three incoming freshmen for next year's class, and all three are McDonald's All-Americans.
Here's the column on Gottfried and N.C. State, too, that was published in Thursday's Charlotte Observer and The (Raleigh) News and Observer.
In the column, Gottfried also talks about what he learned while coaching at Alabama and living in the shadows of the Crimson Tide's football program.
