Quote: We Compete with Carolina & Duke Every Day

On Tuesday, April 11, 2006, the Fayetteville Oberver ran a story that inlcuded the following quote that we failed to highlight at the time. It deserves attention and we wanted to chronicle the quote:

“Everybody comes out and says, ‘You’re Carolina’s and Duke’s little brother and you can’t compete with those guys.’ Ya know what? Everybody who graduates from N.C. State goes out and competes against Duke and Carolina people every single day. And we kick their butt. You think I’m scared to compete with them in athletics? I expect the teams that I provide money to to compete with the best in the country.�

    Hell yeah! And I’m tired of educating those young tar holes that Duke is NOT their long time rival.

    MikeMc – I’d say the more accuate statement would be that Dook isn’t our ONLY long time rival.

    If we are competing then, why are there more students at State than in Chapel Hole. Duke is a given to have less students, who would want to pay $30K+ a year to come to Durham and be around a bunch of upper class wannabes. As far as competing, ask any Tarhole how many classes they had to take at State because they either didn’t have it at UNX or wouldn’t offer it. Take that to the bank and cash it.
