Yesterday’s entry about cheering at NC State games has picked up some attention at The Wolf Web in this thread.
Their conversation discusses the unfamiliarity of many NC State fans with the words to the University’s alma mater. We couldn’t agree more with this problem. This issue will not be fixed until (1) the Einstein’s who manage the scoreboards at Carter-Finley & the RBC start scrolling the songs’ words while the band plays and (2) the University makes the teaching of songs, traditions, and ‘intangibles’ a priority on campus.
While we are on this topic – I hope that realize that the “Red and White” (from State and we know we are the best…) is NOT the NC State fight song. The NC State fight song also has very good lyrics but no-one ever sings them because, again, the words are never shared with the masses. You can see the words to the fight song in the first comment posted under this entry,
