If you don’t want to see blind, irrational hatred for our esteemed flagship university in the UNC School System, you may want to change the channel.Â There will be no statistical breakdown of Carolina (I lost the will to write those earlier this season), but there will be a whole mess of hate speech.Â Please excuse my Navy vernacular for a moment…
Carolina, who the f*ck do you think you are?Â I mean, seriously?Â What we have here is an institution that for years has been claiming that they are the oldest public university in the country and therefore are deserved all of the honors and prestige accompanied by such a well-established institution.Â Just think about that argument for a second.Â Old apparently equals prestigious.Â
If they are so damn prestigious, then why was NC State even founded?Â Oh yeah, I forgot…
Like it or not, whether Carolina wants to admit it or not, University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University have been rivals ever since the North Carolina General Assembly, composed of a large number of UNC-CH alumni, refused to give any money to the new Land Grant college as many other states did to their respective Land Grant institutions.Â Itâ€™s also worth mentioning that Land Grant funding was originally being given to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but somehow disappeared once it came time to establish a â€œpartnerâ€ institution. The rivalry between the Tar Heels and Wolfpack isnâ€™t just athletics, itâ€™s foundational to who we are. (link to original story)
Yeah, real —-ing prestigious, Tar Heels.Â You, as the nation’s “oldest public university” are given cash to assist “the public”, it magically disappears, then NC State has to be founded to clean up your mess.Â Yeah, that sounds like the upright “Carolina Way” we’ve all come to know and love.
Putting the academic scandal aside, just think about all the sh*t we’ve been dealing with recently from various individuals who “officially” represent the University.Â More of that epic “Carolina Way” for you.Â For those who haven’t been paying attention, we have two outrages this week.Â The first is from quarterback Brynn Renner (BTW, this is still the dumbest name I’ve ever heard)Â via Twitter.
@ joshwgoodson: Renner on RW “Last 3x he’s killed us. He’s basically single-handedly beat us…he was basically the whole team”
So Renner, who has been watching our defense stop them cold the past few years (even in 2009) has the balls to say one QB was the reason for them losingÂ contests in a row?Â So you mean to tell me that the “world’s best football coach” couldn’t find a way to defeat a single 5’10″ quarterback?Â If Russell Wilson was “the whole team”, then that just proves exactly how poorly coaches UNC really is… because you would figure after enough seasons getting beat by the boy they would figure out how to defeat him.
On a sidenote, I think the gods of Twitter just hate UNC.Â I have never seen one school have so many problems with a damn website before?Â Anyway, the criticism isn’t just limited to “youthful banter between rivals”.Â BJD95 already vented about Withers, but here is the quote from Carolina’s pseudo-coach just for good measure.
“When you have as many schools in this state as we have, and the recruiting base gets watered down a bit, I think the kids in this state need to know the flagship school in this state,â€ Withers said.
â€œThey need to know it academically. If you look at our graduation rates, as opposed to our opponentâ€™s this week, graduation rates for athletics, for football, youâ€™ll see a difference. â€¦ If you look at the educational environment here, I think youâ€™ll see a difference.â€ (link to original story)
Â What a dick.Â First of all, “coach”, you didn’t even go to Carolina, you went to Appalachian, so I don’t know why the f— you think you have any room to critique the academic standards of UNC or NC State.Â Second of all, in case you didn’t notice, you guys are being investigated for academic and monetary corruption as we speak.Â So if you don’t have any room to talk because you didn’t go there and you don’t have any room to talk because your players are lying trash, then why do you think you have a right to keep talking?
So why are you still reading this?Â I’ll tell you why…
…Because we all really, really, really hate this sorry excuse for a “flagship university” and we need to be pumped for this match-up.Â This institution has a long history of being sh**bags and they continue to prove themselves to be sh**bags.Â This is a call to the troops, included those such as myself that have really lost a lot of confidence in this coaching staff… I hope for this one shining moment that Tom O’Brien comes out of the tunnel and enjoys a little #TOBing as Glennon rains down completions and our defense has a stand-up/break-out performance against Carolina.
Please, NC State, if you don’t do anything else, smear Renner across the field and wipe that smirk off his face.
Please, if there is anything you want to get off your chest about UNC, let us know.Â Your loving family here at SFN wants to be there to support your habbit of unadulterated hatred towards those who deserve it… the jailbirds in blue.
