StateFansNation would like to shout out a congratulations to our conference bretheren in Chestnut Hill as the Boston College Eagles have advanced to their third consecutive Frozen Four, hockey’s version of Final Four’.
Although many in the north – including a lot of the BC students – are more interested in hockey than basketball, I translate this into the equivalent of advancing to three straight College World Series in baseball (which is something that the UNC-CH Tar Heels may achieve this year).
In light of BC’s success we thought that we would share two statistics that are sadly mind-boggling of how the rest of the ACC achieves when compared to the shmables of Lee Fowler’s Athletics Department at NC State.
(1) Since Lee Fowler has become Athletics Director at NC State, the Wolfpack’s Athletics Department is the only ACC program to NOT have played in at least one National Championship game or won a team National Championship in any sport.
(2) Since Lee Fowler has become Athletics Director at NC State, Virginia – whose overall athletics program ranks near the top of the ACC with extremely strong, broad athletic success – and NC State are the only athletics programs in the ACC who have failed to participate in at least a Frozen Four, a College World Series, a BCS Bowl, or a National Basketball Championship game.
