Many State fans are familiar with Ur-Fan BillyTough, perhaps the most loyal member of our Wolfpack family. Mr. Tough’s adminitions to “not throw the team and coach under a bus!” have warmed our hearts and stiffened our resolve. Mr. Tough contacted SFN and asked us to run the statement below. It appears, at Mr. Tough’s request, unedited.
Hello my fellow Pack fans through and through I BillyTough have something to say and the gentlemen who run this Internal Net sight have been kind enough to let me say it all I had to do was ask them! So let me say it! Thank you.
I BillyTough have always been a loyal State fan it was faith in my Wolfpack that got me to the victory in the Henderson County ToughMan Contest in 1998 AND First Runner Up Tough in the Buncombe County ToughMan Contest the same year (I was cheated but that is a story for another day I think!). And HOW did I get all those wins you ask? It was by remembering the spirit of THE WOLFPACK and never letting go of my dream or giving up, like the Great Jimmy V, may Jesus care for his eternal soul even though he was not Baptist, always told us to remember.
Thatâ€™s how I got my nickname, by being, tough, tough, tough! Like a wolf! But that is also a story for another day as I have a heavy heart and a sad tale to tell that must be told. And though I am just an apple farmer from Tuxedo producing quality apples with illegal Mexican-free labor (â€œVay Mos,â€? I tell those folks. This hereâ€™s an American orchard!) some folks have told me that I am now a fan of some well known and that I must speak. I would be proud of that last part but Preacher Bob says, â€œBe not proud.â€? So, I am not.
But I BillyTough have these things to say.
Sometimes in the past so-called â€œState fansâ€? called for coaches to be fired, or even for our beloved Wolfpack to LOSE in order to advance some kind of AIGENDA that seems like a Light Blue AIGENDA to me, BillyTough. I always spoke out against these Sheep in Wolfâ€™s Clothing and always will! â€œDonâ€™t throw our team under a bus,â€? I said. â€œNot when the kids are playing their hearts out and the offense is just starting to Jell.â€? I questioned them that they ainâ€™t TRUE WOLFPACK FANS. And they ainâ€™t! If you doubt that, check with BillyTough, because I give it my 100 percent Guarantee! That even goes for Coach Lee Fowler even though I agree with my Uncle Bung that Coach Lee Fowler is as dense as six inches up a Brahma bullâ€™s ass.
Now, I BillyTough have never felt stronger about any of this Sheep Criticism than I did when it was about COACH AMATO. Coach AMATO bleeds red and white like me. He looked like he was tough, like me. And like me, I knew he hated the CAROLINA TAR HEELS like Satanâ€™s Imps that they are (and some Sodom People too but I will not get into that to be sure!). So I said always, donâ€™t throw Coach AMATO under a bus!
But I have come to doubts in my heart about Coach AMATO after last weekendâ€™s third loss in a row to the Evil Tar Heels. The Evil Tar Heels were one of the worst teams in America, look it up! They had not beaten a 1-A opponent ALL YEAR. Now I know that Coach AMATO was going through a Re Building year but losing to the Tar Heels the way he did last Saturday was an ABOMINATION. So, I thought, maybe he does NOT hate the Tar Heels like I do, because Hendersonville High could have beaten that Tar Heel team! And my beloved Wolfpack lost to them 23-9! My thoughts: CONSPIRACY?
I BillyTough do not know the answers to these questions as I am no philosopher. But I do know this: Losing to that sorry ass Tar Heel team for the third time in a row enough is truly ENOUGH! So, again with a heavy heart I BillyTough am Officially withdrawing my support for Coach AMATO and
THROWING HIM UNDER THE BUS
Because there is nothing left to do with a man who loses to the hated Tar Heels and pretty much everyone else too and loses to the Tar Heels THREE YEARS IN A GOLDANGED ROW. Preacher Bob says a soft answer turneth away wrath but I am truly WROTHFUL. â€œHis justice cometh and that right early,â€? Preacher Bob also says and it is time for some JUSTICE for the football program I love.
Let the Bus roll, and take Coach AMATO to some other place. I BillyTough decree that it is time for a new coach for the North Carolina State University Football Team!
Thank you, and GO PACK!
