  1. Going to The NCState/ECU game. It’s a the first game where you can buy beer in the stadium. This news item has gotten more coverage than the teams. Make of that what you will. Go Pack!

    NC State university in Raleigh, is the Wolfpack and East Carolina University from Greenville, NC are the Pirates. The game is being played here in Raleigh. ECU used to be East Carolina Teachers College way back in the day. It gets thrown around as a jab when someone starts in with State being a “cow college” (it was primarily an ag school).

    Didn’t most of the “State” colleges start out as ag schools?  I know that’s the case in the Northwest and Mountain states.

    Hopefully the following is too “off-color”.  Out here Oregon State is also known as “Moo U”, “Silo Tech”, or  “Oregon State – where men are men and sheep are nervous”.  The greatest irony in all that was an episode in 2005 where one of the Beaver football players was out on a drunken rampage with a former player and his girlfriend.  Did I mention they were drunk?  The pickup they were driving around in was pulled over by the cops in Corvallis and there was a sheep in the back.  It was a ram and they had apparently abducted it from one of the research centers on campus where they were studying homosexuality in animals.  Much speculation among Duck fans that the current football player needed a date…

    Realize this is a post on football but your state plays some of the finest b’ball in the world! I surely do admire the late great Dean Smith and Hall of Famer Coach K. Great standards were set by these men both on and off the court.
