I agree with Jim. Lowe will be back next year. Fowler is already on record stating he will not fire Lowe this year. The key difference in next year's class from this year's is that he brings in a really good PG next year. That position has killed them every since his 2nd season.
Their guards are just really weak. Which makes our loss to them hurt that much more. We now see that was just a "lightning in a bottle" game that State is not capable of reproducing. As bad as Unc-ch's perimeter players are, State's are even worse.
If next year's class proves to be as good as advertised, and he can get them above .500 in conference and show major progress it will save his job. However, if next year is a repeat of this year, I think he is gone.
