This breaks my heart. Full story at WRAL.
A former N.C. State basketball player has been charged with a felony count of obtaining property by false pretenses.
Gavin Grant, 23, surrendered to authorities Tuesday on the charge, which stems from credit card fraud at Saks on Oct. 14, 2008, authorities said.

As you can tell, we haven't had many posts lately. Many reasons for it, between work, kids, life time gets short. As I sit here watching NC State at Clemson the real reason is revealing itself to me. I just haven't been into basketball much since early last season. And, whatever enthusiasm I did have last year was completely sapped watching NC State in the ACC Tournament last year as Gavin Grant was benched and low put on JJ's NBA audition.
Maybe the feeling will turn around if there is a little success, but right now as a State fan I feel completely hopeless about this team. With no hope of making the NCAA's, the state games become somewhat meaningless. I can get excited about Davidson, I can even be excited for Clemson to maybe have a good year. I'll be up for Duke/UNC, but overall, so much of the season doesn't matter. I know State won't make the tournament, I know Duke/UNC/Clemson/Davidson will. So maybe I'll just start saving my money and effort for March.
Anyone want to blog for a while?
