Earlier this week N.C. State informed Athletic Director Lee Fowler that he had six weeks to find a new job. This was no big shock as Wolfpack Nation has been grumbling about underachieving in the major sports for a few years now.

Evidently, hiis exit has been in the works since before Chancellor Randy Woodson joined the school in April from Purdue. By March 23, Woodson said, then interim Chancellor Jim Woodward had told Fowler that he needed to be looking for a job and that the university would help by not announcing his departure until May.

Fowler, 58, will work through June 30 and will be paid through the remainder of his contract, $280,000 annually, until September 2013.

Now guess who wants to be the new A.D.?

How about the head of the Wolfpack boosters?

Not kidding.

However, not all the news coming from Raleigh is bad/crazy. C.J. Leslie committed to N.C. State on Wednesday afternoon. The 6-foot-8 forward from Raleigh Word of God is one of the top high school basketball players in the country. In addition, rising senior Tracy Smith is coming back to school to play hoops.
