NC State couldn’t have picked a better night to fire-up the Wolfpack faithful in Carter-Finley Stadium after Sports Illustrated‘s Andy Staples made some misplaced remarks regarding our home atmosphere last week. You can click here to read about it.
So, let’s keep the national attention rolling by supporting everyone’s new favorite fan in this poll.
[Update]You’ve got to watch the video below as Andy Staples exhibited some great judgement to turn his gaffe into some great political points with NC State faithful. He has issued a video apology (below) that is absolutely awesome.
As much positive attention that NC State fans and the Carter-Finley atmosphere is attracting in the days after the big win over FSU, I can’t help but note that (because of fall break) the State crowd was actually short at least half the (loud) student population that we normally have!! And, many of those extra tickets were taken by Florida State fans that would normally have not been there to dilute our atmosphere. Something to ponder.
