Adventures In Re-Translated N.C. State Sports News

Google alerts is a wonderful thing. It delivers to my inbox everyday news about State, Sidney Lowe, The Wolfpack, er, Wolpfack, Tom O'Brien and more. It's a great way to stay on top of news as it breaks.

It also occasionally delivers some quirky, off-beat items like it did this morning.

Long story short, it sent me a link to a re-posted article of Mike DeCourcy's from April 29th. That's nothing new or noteworthy in and of itself, except this particular re-post seems to have been translated from English into another language...and BACK into English:
3. Is alighting C.J. Leslie what N.C. State indispensable to get behind to the NCAA Tournament?
Leslie, an chosen energy brazen prospect, simply is the many desired partisan to dedicate to N.C. State given J.J. Hickson.

Scout.com has Leslie rated No. twelve in the difficulty of 2010; he was pursued by Kentucky, Connecticut as great as Florida, between others.

Leslie joins the well-regarded recruiting difficulty that additionally facilities wing Lorenzo Brown as great as indicate ensure Ryan Harrow. Presuming brazen Tracy Smith earnings from the NBA draft, State should have the many gifted organisation given Sidney Lowe’s initial season, 2006-07, when he flopped with the talented, maestro group.

N.C. State took the Hoiberg-style risk in 2006 by employing Lowe, the indicate ensure for the Wolfpack’s 1983 inhabitant pretension organisation who’d accomplished all of his coaching in the NBA. State hasn’t accomplished improved than ninth in the ACC since.

Leslie arrives with the repute as, shall you say, the high-maintenance player. Those who competence fit that difficulty who preceded him haven’t regularly contributed as great as DeMarcus Cousins did final deteriorate during Kentucky.

Oklahoma got the great beginner year out of Willie Warren, though he in conclusion showed the scouts were right about him. Lance Stephenson was reduction of the con than expected—but never the great fit during Cincinnati. Derrick Caracter took scarcely 4 years as great as dual schools to get it right.

If Leslie as great as Lowe click, the Pack could be back.
This makes me want to ask Mike the question, "What did you mean when you said, 'Feel my skills, donkey donkey donkey donkey donkey?'"


  1. This. Is. Awesome. Haha

  2. What the heck is a "chosen energy brazen prospect"

  3. Hysterical -- both your post and "News Radio."

  4. I don't know about y'all, but I certainly don't recall State fielding a talented, maestro group in 2006-07.

  5. I just know I'm going to try to fit "Hoiberg-style risk" into all my conversations now.
