Park Scholars to call attention to homeless issues during ‘can sculpture’ contest.

tuesday

Since the earthquake in 2010 ravaged Haiti, music has played a larger role in Haitian culture. A seminar coming to campus will examine how music has helped in re—building Haiti and what more music can do to assist the restoration of the country. “Since the earthquake happened, music has served as therapy for a lot of people,” Professor of music Jonathan Kramer said. This week, Price Music Center’s annual lecture series turns its attention to Haiti, and examines how music is helping heal the people after a devastating 2010 earthquake. “This lecture is an exploration of Haitian music and also of music as a cultural force,” Kramer said. “Rebuilding the House: Haiti, Music & the 2010 Earthquake” will take place Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Talley ballroom. The seminar will discuss the roles music can play in sustaining a society during times of trauma. This is the fifth year the Price Music Center has held a lecture series. According to Kramer, one of the biggest reasons behind the lectures is to raise awareness about global diversity.  All of the lectures highlight topics from different parts of the world. “It is meant to be an interesting and relevant music presentation with global perspective,” Kramer said. Two experts on Haitian music are working with Kramer to present information to students. Michael Largey, a professor at Michigan State University and a leading scholar on Haitian music, will be presenting during the seminar. Janet Anthony, a professor at Lawrence University who has been teaching music in Haiti for more than 20 years, will also be a lead presenter.  Kramer said he got the idea for this particular lecture when he heard a story on the radio about a blind music teacher in Haiti.  Despite the earthquake, the teacher was doing everything in his power to keep his music school going. “I just heard this story, and I wanted to know what it was that was so inspiring to people about music.  Haiti is a stressed society, and I wanted to see how music programs and groups function in that environment,” Kramer said. Heather Gundel, a sophomore in psychology who has played the clarinet for many years, said music can be very important as a healing tool.  She said a close family friend in the United States has recovered with music therapy after not being able to walk due to a disease. “Listening to music can help lift people’s spirits,” Gundel said. “If people are interested in music, I think it can help them.” Marcelo Alvarado, a sophomore in mechanical engineering who plays in the local band Strictly Specials, also said music can be helpful to people who are struggling.  Marcelo said music has had a positive impact on his life and the lives of others. “Music can definitely affect mood or attitude,” Alvarado said. Kramer said it is imperative for students to be aware of global diversity if they want to be successful.  With information being so readily available on the internet, every society is connected and should be conscious of one another. “If students are planning on living in the real world, it is absolutely important.  Every place is now connected to every other place,” Kramer said.  “The more we understand about the world, the better off we are.  We want to develop a deeper awareness of global issues.  We’re committed to that at Price.”

Relief efforts howl for haiti: In response, N.C. State’s Student Government launched “Howl for Haiti” in 2010 to raise money for assistance in the recovery. Under the guidance of Howl for Haiti, student organizations across campus raised money to contribute to the non-profit organization Stop Hunger Now. The initiative, a multifaceted program designed to raise money and awareness for the earthquake victims, included the following events: Jan. 27: Quad Means 4 Drive Feb. 15: Howl for Haiti Benefit Concert Feb. 15: Hugs for Haiti Feb. 21: Stop Hunger Now Packaging Feb. 27: Dance for Haiti April 10: Park Scholars and College of Textiles Fashion Show, Date Auction Source: NCSU Student Government

Tori Sawyer and Allison Dunn, both sophomores in agriculture education, participate in the tug of war event during the Ag Olympics on Monday. Also on their team was the Agriculture Education Club advisor, David Jones, who teaches leadership classes, and his 12-year-old daughter Kelsey. “It doesn’t end after graduation for us,” Sawyer said. “We will probably be working together for the next 30 years.”

Dustin Haigler, a junior in agriculture education, shoves chicken buffalo wings into his mouth during the wingeating contest on Monday during the the Ag Olympics. “The sauce is burning my face,” Haigler said after winning the wing-eating contest. The Ag Olympics was put on by the Agriculture and Extension Education Club and CFFA.

Mindy Herman, a junior in poultry science, catches an egg during the Ag Olympics on Monday. The egg toss was one of seven events held in the competition. “It’s fun because you get to play games and incorporate agriculture products into it,” Herman said.

{Our view}

Part-time students are not part-time concerns The Facts:

During the initial student body elections, the voting website did not allow part-time students a chance to cast their vote. Due to this mistake, 2,192 students were left out of the elections, when the poles reopened only seven students voted.

Our Opinion:

While the mistake should not have happened in the first place, part-time students should realize the importance of their vote. These students play an important part in our University and their concerns should not be left out.

Response to ‘College Cup does not solve communication problems’ This weekend I competed in the first annual college cup as apart of CALS. I read the viewpoint article entitled, “College Cup does not solve communication problems” and I disagree with the statements made in the article. The College Cup was an amazing way to bring students from every college together to compete and to communicate with each other. I met so many awesome people from all the different colleges and we all had a great time. We learned a lot about each other and we got to have some friendly competition while doing it. In the article it states that it’s not Student Government’s job to create traditions but to fix the communication issue with students, but what better way to communicate with the students than to bring students from all the colleges together to meet and get to know each other. The whole point of College Cup is to bring the University together as one Wolfpack nation. Student Government had the opportunity to meet numerous students and create a great environment for students to share what they feel, and they did just that. Student Government, and especially Scott Moore, did an amazing job with the College Cup and I believe that it will become a great tradition here at N.C. State. Everyone I talked to at the event said that they could not wait to participate in the event next year. Overall, College Cup was an extremely positive event and it was a great way for Student Government to bring a diverse group of students together and create unity on the N.C. State campus. Scott Moore and his fellow members in Student Government did a superb job and they are doing a great job minimizing the divide between themselves and the students. Rachel Turner sophomore, biological sciences

Response to “We Don’t Need to Blame the Victim” I am currently an undergraduate at N.C. State, and I would like to point out some facts that I think people are missing when discussing the topic of sexual assault. The Frances De Los Santos letter to the editor made some good points that we shouldn’t blame the victim for rape, but the fact that “he” is always raping “her” is not truthful. Yes, the majority of rapes that occur are male-female. But statistics sometimes do not include

T

he student body elections should be a time for students to have their voices heard, by selecting the candidates to fairly represent them. The concern of any student is a valued one—parttime students are not excluded from this. Part-time students have concerns just as important to the University as fulltime students. This goes beyond the once a year elections, but rather for part-time students voice their concerns and have the proper representation. Many students do not understand the role the Student Senate plays for our University. The senate plays an important role in the actions of the administration. This includes making suggestions and having influence over issues and concerns of the student body.

For part-time students this includes accessible commuter parking, class sections, library accessibility, transportation and tuition and fees increases. Many part-time students can affiliate with these concerns. Coincidentally the Student Senate representatives, as well as the Student Body President, have the ability to address these issues. If part-time students want to have these issues resolved in their favor, participating in the voting process as well as communicating the needs to representatives can aid the resolutions. Many concerns of the reopening of polls dealt with the fact the results were released

and few positions could have been changed by a 2,192 majority vote. However, certain positions, including the treasurer, a member of the executive council who deals with the finances of the student body, could have been swayed to the opposing candidate. More importantly part-time students are just as a part of the student body as the rest us. According to the Student Body Constitution, every student is eligible to vote; this includes part-time, graduate students, etc. They pay for their education, just as full-time student, entitling them to the same treatment at the University— including the right to vote and

representation in the senate. While these students might not be aware of the events going on on campus, that is the responsibility of the Elections Commission to ensure they are properly informed. Many parttime students come to campus for one reason—go to class and leave. This impacts their knowledge of many things going on around campus, including the elections. The only real solution is to keep informed and understand how Student Government affects them. Student Government should not make these concerns part-time, merely because the students are parttime; however, this begins with students speaking up.  This editorial is abridged, please see technicianonline.com for the full version.

female-male and female-female rape. Less than 10 percent of rapes are reported when a male is raped. This says something about the impact these statistics have on our opinion in society. “We need to focus rather on how we can stop men from raping.” This statement irritates me, and reasonable people will agree that this is stereotyping to the extreme. The most effective movement is to focus on preventing all sexual violence. Stereotyping men as always being aggressors and women as always being victims oversimplifies sexual violence. Brian Clements freshman, biomedical engineering

The Student Voice Students want to be heard. They want to affect change in the University and the way they do this is through Student Government but there is sometimes a disconnect between students and Student Government. How many students know who their student senator is much less what they look like or how to get in touch with them? This is a problem. How do we fix it? By bringing students and Student Government together. What better way to do this than having a fun event that will get students out and put them face-to-face with their Student Government representative where they can hang out and start building that connection. The College Cup is the answer. It did exactly that. Hosted by SG, it brought together students and Student Government so they can start communicating. The College Cup recognized this problem and turned it into a fun and tangible solution. It is the start of a more open and positive relationship between students and Student Government. For any student that wants to have their voice heard, I encourage you to attend these types of Student Government events. Meet your student representative and share your ideas. Solutions to problems like advising, transportation and campus safety all come started with a student raising a concern to Student Government. If you are not sure where to find Student Government, just look for the Student Government tent out on the Brickyard. We are there every week. Scott Richardson Senior, business administration

Biden’s expansion on Title IX is redundant

V

ice President Joe Biden has designed a plan to prohibit sexual violence in schools. This plan is an expansion of Tit le IX, a civil rights law for gender equality in education, designed to educate Aila Goforth both facStaff Columnist u lt y a nd students about sexual discrimination and how to respond to sexual assault. This is in hopes that it will reduce the amount of sexual discrimination on campuses. While the plan may seem like a good idea to help stop sexual violence, it is an idea that is already implemented. Students and faculty are already educated about the negative effects of sexual violence. More education will not purely stop all sexual violence that occurs. A letter from the United States Department of Education and its Office of Civil Rights states that information about sexual violence should be in the schools’ handbooks; however, I remember it being in my handbook when I was in high school and there were still cases of sexual harassment. Even if it wasn’t in a handbook and they put it in there, very few people read the handbook front to back. Most students throw it away

or put it somewhere and leave it for the rest of the school year. A sheet of paper about sexual violence collecting dust along with the rest of the handbook is not an effective way to educate people. Educating people about a topic as sensitive as sexual violence cannot be through paper and books; to effectively educate someone risks must be taken. For example, after the sexual assault here at N.C. State the red and white flags were put up in Carolina Court, showing that one in four women are sexually assaulted by the end of their college career. Every time students walk by the flags they think of what it means. That is an example of effective education. Another problem with Title IX was that it is very wordy. Assistant Secretary of Civil Rights, Russlynn Ali said, “[The Office of Civil Rights] is already working with schools to help them in their fight against the harmful effects of sexual violence by providing technical assistance and seeking remedies designed to stop such conduct, prevent its recurrence and remediate its impact.” My question is, what remedies are they speaking of? Also what technical assistance? What remedies are so influential that they’re going to stop all sexual violence, prevent it from ever reoccurring again, and remediate its impact? These are all things that no one has a direct way to fix. Biden might be able to implement more educa-

tion about sexual violence but he cannot stop every person from committing an act of sexual violence. While reading through the letter from the United States Department of Education I came across a statement multiple times that quite frankly bothered me. “If a school determines that sexual harassment that creates a hostile environment has occurred, it must take immediate action to eliminate the hostile environment, prevent its recurrence and address its effects.” This statement seems to be pointing out that if and only if a hostile environment is the result of sexual harassment then immediate action will be taken; not just if sexual harassment has occurred. In my opinion, immediate action should be taken after any act of sexual harassment, not only the acts that result in a hostile environment. While Biden’s intentions are good, in order to relieve the problem of sexual violence, he is going to have to get a little more creative with his ideas of educating people. Maybe looking into the way N.C. State handled its recent assault will help Biden’s plan become a little more plausible. Send Aila your thoughts on sexual assualt to letters@technicianonline. com.

‘Scream’ing for the fourth time ‘Scream 4’ will hit theaters on Friday with a younger cast, including Hayden Panettiere.   Katie Handerhan Staff Writer

It was t he mov ie t hat launched thousands of Halloween costumes, and redefined cinema horror for a new generation of moviegoers, leaving fans screaming for more. Directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williams, the Scream trilogy took the typical killing spree horror formula and turned it into something that is, according to movie critic Dustin Putman, “smart, scary and genuinely suspenseful—a twist on the stalk-andslash films from the late 70s and early 80s.” Now, more than a decade later, Craven and Williams return to make fans scream for the fourth time w it h S c re a m 4 opening in theaters on Friday. With a $14 million dollar budget, the original Scream was a huge financial success, bringing in $103 million, which according to Putman, is rarely seen in movies of this genre. The next two followed a similar trend at the box office with Scream 2 clocking in at $172 million and Scream 3 at $161 million worldwide. Craven and Williams reaped the benefits of the film’s successes as they both received

awards for their work. Craven received the Grand Prize at the Gérardmer Film Festival, and Williams won multiple awards for best writer while the film made its way onto Empire’s list of the 500 greatest movies of all time in 2008.    The first two films received overall good ratings, even swaying the mind of historically tough critic Roger Ebert, who enjoyed both of the first two films. But Scream 3, according to critics, missed its mark, leaving die-hard fans discouraged about the future of the series. Rotten Tomatoes rated Scream 3 at 38 percent on its Tomatometer, claiming that the series had “lost its freshness and originality by falling back on the old horror formulas and clichés.” David Ruehle, a junior in anthropology, agrees that Scream may have fa l len short because of its overuse of the clichés of horror movies in general. “They’re a l l t he same to me,” Ruehle said. “Nothing new really happens anymore.” As the new sequel quickly approaches theaters, fans are left wondering if the series will be able to recapture its former glory. But with new young actresses being cast in the film, Scream 4 may be just what fans have been asking for. Playing alongside the original cast of Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell

The first three:

Scream (1996) The killer Ghostface appears in Woodsboro, California, terrorizing the teenage populace. The slasher turns his eye on young Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who must struggle to stay alive and uncover Ghostface’s identity. Scream 2 (1997) Now attending college, the Woodsboro survivors are terrorized by a new Ghostface. The conventions of horror sequels are showcased in Sidney’s struggle to stop the second killer. Scream 3 (2000) In the final part of the original trilogy, Sydney once more faces off against Ghostface. Set in Hollywood, the film’s dependence on cameos and meta-references was not well received by critics. -Jordan alsaqa

will be Emma Roberts (It’s Kind of a Funny Story), who plays Jill Roberts, and Hayden Panettiere (television series Heroes), who plays Kirby Reed, as they dodge the latest killing spree. “It should be interesting,” Jordan Sawyer, a junior in communications, said when asked about the latest cast additions. Hayden Panettiere spoke with Technician last week in a telephone interview. According to Panettiere, Scream 4 promises to do anything but disappoint with Craven directing the film. “He’s a mastermind,” Panettiere said. “When he’s on set you can tell how much he loves what he does – it’s a great

In the new film Scream 4, Hayden Panetierre and Emma Roberts lead a cast that reads as a veritable who’s who of young Hollywood starlets. The cast also includes David Arquette and Courteney Cox.

vibe for the cast.” Unlike the third film, Scream 4 bends the rules and “redefines” typical slashers, according to Panetierre. “It’s not just a sequel,” Panetierre said, “it’s a reboot of the past and the characters. This [movie] is a real roller coaster; it’s a big game of Clue.” Like the last three films, Scream 4 will have the same satirical sense of humor that pokes fun at teen horror films, adding much-needed comic relief from its spine-jolting scares. “You’ve got that comedy that other genres have,” Panetierre said. “It’s not the typical horror movie. It’s still terrifying, but has those great moments of being hysterical.” Although Scream 4 promises to give fans a fresh take on the genre, students still have mixed

feelings about its potential for success. Katie Stevenson, a junior in political science, feels that there may be a glimmer of hope for the new film. “[Horror sequels] are usually not very good,” Stevenson said, “but this one might be different.” For Panettiere, who has acted in various types of film genres, Scream 4 has been a unique experience. “I’m a big horror movie fan,” Panettiere said. “I used to love to scare myself half to death, as long as I had my parent’s room to run into.“ Sawyer, like Panetierre, has a passion for scary movies. “They are like an adrenaline rush,” Sawyer said. “It’s fun to watch other people be scared when you’re not in the same situation.”

Acting in this film was natural for Panetteire, as she said her blood curdling scream came easily. “It’s cumulative,” Panetierre said, “I learned at a very young age to scream at the top of my lungs.” But even with her love of horror, Panettiere admits she would never have as much courage as her character shows throughout the film. “I would run so far out of that house,” Panetteire said. “I would be down those stairs in a second asking for police.” As for new twists and turns in the film, Panettiere refuses to give any clues, but teased by saying, “virgins usually die.” “My character is not a virgin,” Panetierre said, “so does that mean I’m not going to live as long? You’ll just have to wait to find out.”

Commentary

New ‘Arthur’ film is seriously on the rocks Arthur

Warner Brothers

Jordan Alsaqa Senior Staff Writer

Whether or not Arthur is a movie worth seeing is mostly going to come down to your opinion of the film’s main star. If you don’t care for Russell Brand’s comedic style, then this is a movie you should avoid, as it is first and foremost a showcase of the persona he has developed over the past few years. That being said, fans of Brand should also be wary before heading to theaters. Though Brand’s performance heightens a lot of the comedy in the film, much of Arthur remains bogged down by problematic elements. A remake of the 1981 Dudley Moore film, Arthur follows the titular character as he enjoys a lavish playboy lifestyle. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Arthur Bach, played by Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek), has spent the ent i ret y of his life playing games and partying, never entering into the adult world. All of this changes when his mot her threatens to cut him off from the family fortune unless he goes through with an arranged marriage with Susan Johnson, played by Jennifer Garner (Juno, The Invention of Lying). Arthur reluctantly agrees, but soon begins falling in love with Naomi, played by Greta Gerwig (Greenberg, No Strings Attached), an average woman who is the complete opposite of the power-hungry Susan. This love triangle encompasses only part of the plot, which also includes Arthur’s relationship with his nanny

Russell Brand stars as Arthur in the new film of the same name. It was based on a classic Dudley Moore comedy.

Hobson, played by Helen Mirren (The Tempest, Red), the character’s attempts to become sober and his overall journey into adulthood. In all honesty, the biggest problem Arthur has is the sheer amount of plot in the film. Though all of these storylines were present in the original, they were dealt with far more efficiently, allowing more humor to be mined from Dudley Moore’s antics as the drunken Arthur. This is where fans of Brand will need to be the most considerate. The casting of Brand as Arthur is perfect, given the actor’s rea l life history of drug use and partying. However, with the plot taking up so much screen time, there are very few instances where the character gets to do crazy things. As a result, it feels as if Brand is being forced to reign in the chaotic nature that has made him so popular, for much of the film. The scenes where Brand does get to cut loose are the funniest the film has to offer, but are unfortunately few and far between. Another problem of the large plot is that the different

Nathan Bihlmeyer, a senior in biochemistry, munches on a homemade onigiri at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum Sunday. Onigiri is a traditional japanese snack consisting of rice, seaweed and either vegetables or meat and was one of many dishes prepared by SRPE. Bihlmeyer, who joined the club because it incorporated many of his interests, was very involved in the making of the various Japanese dishes. “I made most of [the onigiris,] but the making of all the food was a collective effort,” said Bihlmeyer.

Club picnic showcases Japanese dishes Club met Sunday for a homemade bento picnic to talk anime and hang out. Elizabeth Ayscue Staff Writer

Hot dogs shaped like octopi, apples cut into rabbit-shapes and rice balls wrapped in seaweed—welcome to the world of Japanese bento food! A bento is the Japanese equivalent to an American lunch box. The bento box has different partitioned sections and is filled with delicious food for people to take to work or school. Parents often spend a great amount of time shaping the food into cute animals for their children. This past Sunday, the Society for the Refinement of Polyvarietal Entertainment, hosted a Bento Picnic at the University’s Arboretum. The club spent Saturday purchasing and cooking the food to be enjoyed

Melamed agreed and explained that it was interesting getting to see who was more adept at cooking a certain type of food, such as Japanese food, Korean food, etc. “It’s also nice to see everyone’s unique backgrounds,” Kolbas said.

storylines are never juggled well, making for uneven pacing. One part late in the film changes the tone radically for about ten minutes, and, though it is well-acted, feels severely out of place. The supporting cast manages a fair enough job, but none of the other characters really jump off the screen the way they should. Garner’s manipulative and unhinged Susan feels a bit too over-the-top, and she

The inside can be filled with a number of different things, from salted salmon to pickled ume, which is a fruit common in Japan. The club members all came to SRPE for different reasons, but very much enjoy the atmosphere that the club brings. “I originally came to the club because of my interest in learning Japanese,” Melamed said. “It gave me the opportunity to get exposed to the media coming out of Japan.” “I like SRPE because, like most of the people here, I’m

interested in Japanese animation and comics,” Smith added. “[But] it’s open to other forms of entertainment.” According to Kolbas, the term “polyvarietal” refers to the club’s openness to other forms of media, not just Japanese anime and manga. Kolbas hopes that more people will come to the club for a fun, relaxed environment and the chance to get out and do something with the club members’ combined interests. “If anyone thinks it sounds interesting, they are welcome to join us,” Kolbas said. 

doesn’t seem believable enough as the successful business woman she’s supposed to be. Gerwig fares better as the free-spirited love interest, and there seems to be genuine chemistry between her and Brand. Even stronger is the relationship between Arthur and Hobson, thanks in no small part to Mirren. The actress plays the straight-laced character well, making the scenes where she joins in with Arthur’s madness that much more enjoyable. Other characters, such as Bitterman and Susan’s father

Burt, played by Luis Guzman and Nick Nolte respectively, are given so little to do, it’s a wonder they were even included. Though some of the characters feel unnecessary, the casting isn’t the biggest failing of Arthur; that honor is reserved for the script. Though some scenes provide a few genuine laughs, the majority of the movie is plagued with uninspired jokes and lame oneliners. The film also falls back on some of the most clichéd tropes, including one scene where Arthur tries to exit a room but enters a closet instead. This goes back to the problem of Brand seeming as if he was kept on a short leash during filming. Though the occasional line will obviously come from his obscene, scatterbrained sense of humor, it feels as if the majority of any ad-libbing he may have done was left on the cutting room floor. It begs the question—why remake a movie as a star vehicle if you aren’t going to let the star do the driving? Overall, Arthur isn’t a complete failure. There are more than a few fun moments, and Brand perfectly captures the spirit of the character Dudley Moore made famous 30 years ago. Unfortunately, the film as a whole feels unnecessary. Unless you are a huge fan of Brand, you’ll probably be better off tracking down a copy of the original film.

taken the baseball programs to a new level. He has taken the team to eleven NCAA regional appearances, is the alltime winnigest coach in the programs history with 539 wins and was named the ACC and NCAA Coach of the Year in 2003. However, Avent does have a few knocks on him, knocks that are growing bigger and bigger every year. The first is that Avent has never been able to take his team to the College World Series. He came close twice, losing to Miami in 2003 and losing in the third game of the three game series against Georgia in 2008 but still hasn’t been able to take the Pack to Omaha. To put this in perspective, Since 2000, Miami has made it to the College World series five times, North Carolina four times and Clemson and Florida State have made it three times a piece. Also, Avent has been unable to capture an ACC Championship. His closest finishes came in 2008 when he finished second in the Atlantic Division, forth overall and in 2003 where his team finished third overall in the league. On top of that, he has struggled against ACC competition as he is only 187-

193 overall during the fourteen seasons. Couple these two problems with teams that have underperformed in the last two seasons and counting, and Avent could be facing a problem. The 2009 season was the worst in Avent’s history as a coach at State as the team managed to only win 25 games compared to 31 losses. The 2010 season was better as the team finished 38-24, but it finished only .500 in the ACC at 15-15 and was on the bubble in terms of making it to a regional prior to a surprise ACC Tournament run in which it made it all the way to the championship game, catapulting it into the Myrtle Beach Regional, where it lost both of its games. And this season hasn’t been much better as the team is just 5-10 in the conference and just 18-15 overall. After dropping the first two series of the season, State began to come on winning two straight series against Clemson and Wake Forest. However, the team was swept against a good Miami team in Coral Gables. But if this team doesn’t catch fire and finish strong in these next few weeks and secure itself a NCAA Regional bid, Avent, like Tarantini and Lowe, could be on his way out because as we have seen, Yow means business and expects nothing but excellence.

The Crimson Tide topped the 20-win mark three times, posted a combined 8841 record, advanced to four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, an NCAA Elite Eight appearance, held a No. 1 national ranking, and won an SEC regular-season championship with Early on the bench. His work as an assistant coach did not go unnoticed. In 2004 he was recognized as Athlon Sports named him the third-best assistant coach in the nation. Gottfried has started to put together a familiar, successful staff that will be, as Yow said, second to none in the United States. With a few of the pieces put in place in the coaching staff puzzle, Wolfpack Nation eagerly awaits Gottfried’s next move to help take the team that has lived in the basement of the ACC for the last five years back.

Quote of the day “He is going to put together a staff here that is going to be second to none in the United States and that is not a hyperbole.” Debbie Yow, Athletics Director

Gottfried adds to basketball staff New basketball coach brings experience and familiarity to N.C. State Sean Klemm Deputy Sports Editor

Less than a week after being named head coach, Mark Gottfried has begun the process of creating his coaching staff, hiring two assistants. Upon being named head coach last week, Gottfried expressed his desire to build a solid staff around him with the same mentality. “What I want to do here is build a phenomenal staff,” Gottfried said. “That is the most important thing. Guys that understand this place understand what it takes to win, coach on the floor, develop young men and recruit great talent. That is where we want to be and that will be my first priority outside of these guys right here.” Athletics Director Debbie Yow echoed the opinions of her second head coaching hire and firmly expressed her confidence in the Wolfpack’s new coach in last Tuesday’s press conference. “He is going to put together a staff here that is going to be second to none in the United States and that is not a hyperbole,” Yow said. Gottfried is well on his way, hiring two assistants that are both former head coaches. Former Charlotte 49ers head coach Bobby Lutz and former University of Louisiana-Monroe head coach Orlando Early have

joined the N.C. State staff as assistants. Lutz, a Catawba, N.C. native, led Charlotte to a school-record five 20-win seasons, averaged over 18 wins a year and won three league titles (1999, 2001, 2004) in his tenure with the 49ers. Five times in his career a Lutz-coached 49er squad knocked off a top-10 opponent, including a win over No. 3 Cincinnati in 1999. Five of the eight wins over top-10-ranked opponents in Charlotte’s history came under Lutz’s watch. In 2005 Lutz was a finalist for the Jim Phelan Coach of the Year Award. Following his storied career at Charlotte, Lutz served on the staff at Iowa State where he helped the Cyclones earn their highest win total since 2005-06. Lutz has significant ties to the state of North Carolina and should be an asset to Gottfried and the basketball program in the area of recruiting. He had four top-20 national recruiting classes and coached 10 players who earned first-team all-conference honors at Charlotte. Orlando Early joins the Wolfpack after serving as an assistant at South Carolina for one season and the head coach of University of LouisianaMonroe for five seasons. In his second season at LouisianaMonroe Early led the squad to its first winning season in six years and a share of the Sun Belt Conference West Division title in the program’s first season in the conference. Early was named Coach of the Year
