Video: Take an exclusive look inside NC State’s new indoor facility
Back in June, NC State opened the doors to the 90,000 square foot Close-King indoor practice facility, and the new first-class facility allows student-athletes to really “maximize their time during the day,” according to deputy AD of internal relations Michael Lipitz.
With giant retractable doors lining the sides of the facility, the new indoor is a really impressive addition on campus for Dave Doeren’s program.
“One of the tings we should be proud of is the way we maximized our budget dollars. It’s really impressive from the outside, it matches the rest of the complex, and it’s appealing from the outside. And then, when you go inside, it has every component that the student-athletes need to train.” Lipitz goes on to explain.
The video above gives some back-story on how coaching staff’s from the past, and present pushed for the facility, and it provides an excellent look at Doeren and his staff’s newest recruiting pitch.

Nebraska provides latest reminder to watch what you say on social media
Nebraska giveth, Nebraska taketh away.
One day after being hired as Nebraska’s public address announcer, Jon Schuetz says the Huskers have fired him over a social media post he made criticizing Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman. Here is the post, according to the Omaha World-Herald:
Harvey Perlman is as (sic) disgrace. Remember this was the guy who extended Steve Pederson’s contract only to fire him a few months later. When will he be held to account?
The policy seems pretty draconian considering: A) Schuetz was not a Nebraska employee at the time and B) Good luck finding a new PA announcer that never made a critical of a program more than 15 years removed from its last conference title. I believe that reduces the field down to Nebraska employees, Perlman family members and those born without fingers.
Nevertheless, Schuetz does not begrudge the program for firing him. It’s Nebraska’s job to give and, obviously, Nebraska’s job to take away.
Let this be a reminder to us all to audit our social media accounts every so often so as to prevent burning bridges before we even have a chance to cross them.
Kyle Flood says he fully expects to be Rutgers’ head coach on Saturday
The inquiry into Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood’s alleged email impropriety has lasted more than two weeks now. It was supposed to be resolved “quickly.” Rutgers AD Julie Hermann has yet to speak publicly on the matter.
In spite of all these facts, Flood’s job continues, and the Scarlet Knights open Saturday afternoon against Norfolk State.
With a game now less than five days away, Flood spoke Tuesday, dancing around the incredibly awkward elephant placed in the middle of the room.
Rutgers’ investigation is sure to wrap up. Eventually.
