I've done it. You've done it. Throughout the entire year, we've all succumb to it. After every loss, every win, each time a highly touted recruit committed to the Pack; we've all thought to ourselves - 'Man, this team is going to be special next year'. I'm here to say screw next year and screw it hard.
We're good this year. We've grown this year. And I want it this year! We can beat Kansas. We can beat UNC. I believe. We've conditioned ourselves to expect to lose through the last 25 years even coined the term #NCSTATESHEEEEETT . It all stops here, right now. It may hurt in the end but I am opening up to hope.
This is what some people from the outside looking in don't seem to understand. I don't expect NC State to beat Kansas. I want them to beat Kansas, badly. We have a shot, we're in this game and as long as you are playing you have a chance. I don't expect NC State to make the final four, but I want them to. I want it bad, I want it THIS YEAR. Why because we are still playing, I want my team to win.
So I don't care whether Torian Graham or Amile Jefferson commit to the Pack, I hope they do. I'm not worried if CJ Leslie is going to turn pro after this year. Those things will be waiting for us if we lose. While we're still in this thing, I'm focused, hyped, anxious all about Friday at 10pm. LETS GET IT DONE!
