Debbie Yow took questions for about 20 minutes this afternoon. Among other things, we learned that Tom O'Brien has no interest in putting stripes on the football uniforms. I had a funny moment...

I see they're using the CoverItLive software...so I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before Debbie joins us for a liveblog.

NC State Director of Athletics Deborah A. Yow has announced two additions to the department's senior staff. Carrie Doyle has been named Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance, while Carrie Leger, who is currently the Director of NC State's Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes (ASPSA), will now serve as Associate Director of Athletics for Academics and Student Services.

Yow strengthens the compliance/oversight side of the department.

"For our fans, there is going to be a new email address set up…so they have a special place to share issues they might encounter," Yow said. "Because what fans need will always matter." This promise has come to fruition in the form of the Wolfpack Unlimited feedback tool on gopack.com. The tool, located under the "Contact Us" tab on the website, allows fans to submit feedback about the site, the Wolfpack online store or general questions about anything in the athletics department. These concerns are being taken seriously by all in the department, according to Yow. "[The comments have] been great because some people have just had some bad information that we could explain," Yow said. "Some people have come up with good ideas that we’ve initiated because of them." And through Labor Day, each concern has been addressed. "We answer every question," Yow said. "We comment on everything that is said to us."

Athletics using fan response to improve gameday experience. Unless it ended up in my spam box and I missed it, this means I'm literally the only person who hasn't gotten a response to an inquiry. I'll keep pestering them about selling those sweet-ass soccer jerseys, though. In all seriousness, this is really awesome. Kudos to Debbie Yow and the athletics department for following through.

Rough estimates from the change in legislation means the Rams Club will have to make up for $2.68 million, but cutting the five-year-old subsidy will save the state $9 million. Annual goals for the Rams Club this academic year include raising $11 million in donations. Donations of $100 or more are primarily used for athletic scholarships, according to the Rams Club website. Bobby Purcell, executive director of N.C. State’s Wolfpack Club, believes the budget cuts will take away top talent from other states. "I’m very concerned about what it will do to us, but I’m particularly concerned with what it will to do the smaller schools in the system," Purcell said.

A little more on the effects of losing the tuition subsidy. I'm guessing our hit will be similar to the $2.7-ish million this is going to cost the Rams Club. More from the Wilmington Star here.
