Before I sink back into my natural state of deep wolven depression, I wanted to express my sincere thanks to the players and coaches who made the wild ride of this past season possible. It came with its bumps and bruises, fits and starts, but perhaps most importantly for a program that had staggered blindly in the wilderness for so very long – we learned how to love again. That’s the first prong of why last night hurt so much, we really loved this bunch of wolves.
State just didn’t have it tonight. The Pack made a few runs, but never found any rhythm against the Louisville zone, shooting only 38% from the field. Meanwhile, Louisville’s hot-shooting continued, hitting 50% from the field. After taking a 54-53 lead with 7:19 remaining, State was outscored 14-3 over the next 5:58 as Louisville — […]
Comrades! As part of Glorious Revolution, it has come to our attention that the filthy dogs of the Western media have been spreading slanderous lies to discredit Commandant Gottfried and our Red brethren from the Oklahoma Oblast.

I humbly suggest we yank away the tablecloth instead.
Penn Live Sports Columnist David Jones must live under a bridge somewhere on the Susquehanna River. He’s certainly a troll nonpareil with his latest column, and one that comes across as nothing more than a bitter screed by a sore loser: NCAA tournament: Louisville-NC State could pass for an NIT semifinal Jones starts by hurling […]
Note – The great pic from the WRAL or N&O doesn’t really tie into the article. I just like it. I really appreciate the Wolfpack extending the basketball season so that the latest OOC SOS summary will appear before we move into baseball and the long drought until football comes back on Labor Day […]
Now that there is some breathing room for Pack fans between NCAA basketball weekends (and we’re all infinitely happy to be BETWEEN NCAAT games, and not finished with games of course), I figured I’d jump in and give a quick update on what the Pack9 has been up to. When last we met, Wolfpack Baseball […]
