NOT Davis Throws 2 Scores in Loss to Wake

The headline of’s article on State’s horrible loss to Wake Forest reads as follows:

“Wolfpack Fall In Winston-Salem.
Jay Davis throws a pair of scores in the loss. “

If only that were true. (By the time that you click on the article, they probably will have fixed it).

Anyone who followed todays nightmare knows that GoPack’s headline is not accurate. Marcus Stone threw 2 scores today; not Jay Davis.

But…who is, anyway? Surely it would be asking way too much of them to get the headline accurate in an article about NC State football? Especially since the big story of today’s and the crux of most conversations about the game revolve around the performance of both quarterbacks!! Who would need/want accuracy about that?

I know who threw the touchdowns today; and who threw the picks today. The guy over at Section Six didn’t seem to have a problem figuring out who threw the what today. So, the next time some jack ass argues about the relevancy of blogs and proves himself a moron with blind love for the “real media”, you can add this as example #56 billion…..)

The game sucked, and lots of Wolfpackers are expressing themselves in pictures. Those that were at the game are sharing what they saw on this thread.

    I really get annoyed by the “real media” statements. First of all, the implication is that “real media” never gets it wrong. That’s BS and everyone knows it. Secondly, their opinion writers are no more right or wrong than blog writers, even if they are professional scribes. I’ve yet to see a writer the quality of a Heywood Broun, a Grantland Rice or even a John Feinstein grace the pages of any local newspaper here in the Carolinas.

    Finally, the factual errors remain on as well.

    When the media outlets OWN the news, what objectivity can they have? If you think the era of yellow journalism ended in the 1910s, you’re wrong. It’s more alive today than ever.

    Please, don’t make statements about the website when you have no idea what you are talking about. Did you not see the “(AP)” in the article? That means the AP wrote the story (hence why it was wrong on ESPN too).

    For football and basketball, picks up the AP article and places it on the websites of the two respective schools. Go check it out. Most school websites (if part of will have the exact same article. So the school doesn’t write these articles.

    So don’t blame the athletic dept, blame the AP.

    Also, gopack or any official school sports websites is not a “real media” website. To think so, you have drunken the Kool-Aid. It is has always been a PR branch of the athletic department to make announcements, etc.

    Irrelevant banter is reserved for this website no doubt.

    ^ “No doubt!!”

    You have an Interesting perspective that GoPack (or any website) shouldn’t be responsible for what they run on their own website. Very interesting. I irrelevantly banterly disagree with that and don’t understand how you miss the larger issue.

    Then again, in the NC State community, it is a historically common belief that nobody is responsible for anything that happens and that we just have bad luck.

    It is completely similar to how you totally missed the bigger issue in your defense of our website that doesn’t seem to write their own articles about our games. You didn’t seem to have any problem with the the NC STATE ATHLETICS WEBSITE doesn’t take the time or commitment to write their own game-articles & cover NC State games?!?! Instead, choosing to accept a generic national feed of the Associated Press? Interesting.

    With that kind of ‘commitment’ to the Wolfpack program, why do they exist? Can’t we just click on Reuters or AP or Yahoo to see these stories?
