The Pack continues to play with emotion that no opponent has been able to match. Coach Yow’s week began with treatments for breast cancer. It could end with an improbable ACC title — her first since 1991.
The run could have a storybook conclusion as the Wolfpack will battle UNC-CH at 1pm for the ACC Championship. State hasn’t played for an ACC Championship since 2001 and hasn’t won an ACC Title since 1991.
One quick critcism about the N&O’s piece that read as follows:
Many of the 11,538 at the Greensboro Coliseum jumped on the Yow bandwagon — even the Carolina faithful sang the Pack fight song. N.C. State’s triumph ended Duke’s quest for a perfect season, but the real prize, a national title, could still go to Duke.
What the hell is that? Seriously. What relevance is the fact that Duke could still win the national title have to do with anything? At best, it’s a mis-placed over-statement of the obvious that reads like a student paper. When I read this I immediately thought that there is no way that this was written by one of the N&O’s real reporters. Very bad. Then I saw the by-line and saw “Rachel Carter.” Rest my case.
In situations like these, I think that your voice is heard with more credibility if you focus on the incompetence without necessarily attaching the claim of ‘bias’ to the complaint.
