WRAL posted this story this morning about TOB’s concern regarding the scheduling of the game Thursday night.
That’s when he sounded a little ticked off about the timing of the game.
“This is close to impossible. For what we had to do to leave tonight. You know the ACC, I don’t know why they did it to us but it’s a terrible, terrible thing,” O’Brien said on the Wolfpack Sports Network.
Haynes reminded O’Brien that State “kind of saved the ACC” on Saturday.
“Yeah well they offered us up as a sacrificial lamb on Thursday too,” O’Brien replied.
The ACC will be involved in four Thursday night ESPN games this season. N.C. State’s Sept. 16 game against the Bearcats is the only one that doesn’t have an open date preceding it.
Not only do we not have an open week prior to our Thursday night game, we had an AWAY game in Orlando, Florida. Such things are quite curious, and it makes me wonder why there’s so much debate over Wolfpack fans’ perpetual claim that there is no equal protection under ACC “law” with a Tar Heel (Swofford) sitting atop the proverbial conference court.
One might ask: What on earth was Lee Fowler doing when the schedules were being determined? If there was an abnormal scheduling glitch, as in we were dropped unexpectedly from another OOC team’s schedule and had to hastily find another opponent, please share it with us.
Otherwise, I see no reason to not continue looking for black helicopters and checking lampshades in the Murphy Center for bugs.
