Get Your Nevada Memorabilia at

Perhaps some of you got the same e-mail I did recently from about their latest Rivers/Holt auction item.

Nevermind that “Rivers to Holt” seems a bit silly to me considering Philip and Torry never played together. But is it too much to ask for the official athletics website to correctly spell the name of our mascot?

“Two of the most important modern day players to ever come from NC State to the NFL…. TORRY HOLT and PHILIP RIVERS. This custom matted and framed piece is a one of kind original from and features an autographed 8×10 of Torry Holt in his Wolf Pack days and an autographed 8×10 of Philip Rivers in his Wolf Pack days! This is a dream piece to have seen Rivers throwing to Holt, it would have been one of the most incredible combinations in the history of the NCAA but it surely is a Wolf Pack Fantasy combination! This piece comes with Dual “GAI” GLOBAL AUTHENTICATION Certificates of Authenticity for each of the autographs and is direct from your number one source for Wolf Pack Autographs and Memorabilia. This piece was custom done for so bid high and bid often and support the Pack!”

Now granted this description more than likely came from (who also has autographed shoes from “Cammeron Bannerman” and “Illian Etimov”) but does anybody at proofread these sort of things? And isn’t the “Wolf Pack” the mascot for the University of Nevada?

In the big scheme of things this really isn’t a big deal but it’s one of those pet peeve sort of things that looks sloppy and unprofessional and doesn’t do much to improve my already low opinion of

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?

    One of a kind might be a tad modest, considering it looks like some fifth grader’s art project.

    Doesn’t Annabelle have someone in charge of proof reading this information from Legends Autographs for correct spelling? I mean, she does have a lot of SID work that may make this be just an oversight.

    I’ve been getting these emails also. At first i thought they were from our school trying to earn money for the WP Club. They make it look like an auction but to make a bid, you have to put a credit card online. I just got a unsettleing feeling about it and wonder who is truly behind this, whether NCSU supports it, whether it is on the level or just a sales scam and not really affilated with GoPack. Maybe the N&O should investigate.

    Uhhhhh, that thing really sucks.

    Plus, after the way that Holt recently outed himself as a Tahole b-ball fan, who would want a picture of such a traitor?

    Just another item in the long long long long . . . etc. line of high quality management gaffs Foulup has brought to WOLFPACK athletics!

    Holt a heels basketball fan…..what????

  8. buttPACKer 05/01/2008 at 3:40 PM #

    someone has actually placed a $400 bid on that POS

  9. Pack92 05/01/2008 at 3:43 PM # is the biggest joke of an athletics website I’ve ever seen. If they did not post baseball scores I wouldn’t know it existed. On the site there is way more effort put into directing you to buy merchandise than there is to having a decent picture of WOLFPACK athletics painted.

    This is completely off topic. I haven’t posted in a while, because my old account kept telling me that I had the wrong password, even after getting it reset. Anyway, I finally got a GMail account and re-registered. SFN, you can delete this post, I just wanted to let you know that I had that problem, in case you want to investigate it.

    Attention to detail. We are not known for that in athletics recently.

  12. UpstateSCWolfpack 05/01/2008 at 8:12 PM #

    I am watching the movie Auto Focus and they just dropped Roman Gabriel’s name about being a great QB.

  13. PackerInRussia 05/01/2008 at 10:08 PM #

    I think it’s only fair to steal Nevada’s name after they stole our mascot a year or so ago. BTW, did that ever get resolved?

  14. PackerInRussia 05/01/2008 at 10:10 PM #

    Wow, it does look like a fifth grade art project.

  15. El Scrotcho 05/01/2008 at 11:06 PM #

    I think I liked it better when I wasn’t aware of the extent that we suck at everything…even down to our website. I think I’m gonna take an NC State vacation – ya’ll get this crap straightened out before I get back.

    What a bunch of BS. Bly thinks that all State students are UNC rejects. What a bunch of crap, and Holt a Tarheel Bball fan is a disgrace.

  17. blackdom 05/02/2008 at 11:21 AM #

    it is all very very sad I too get those same emails once or twice a day.

    “What a bunch of BS. Bly thinks that all State students are UNC rejects. What a bunch of crap, and Holt a Tarheel Bball fan is a disgrace.”

    … saying he went to State because he couldn’t get in Carolina; OUCH!

    My beef with what Holt said was not that he feels that way, but that he said it in public. I am sure that many athletes don’t feel as strong a ties to their school as the fans do – that’s just a difference in being a fan and an athlete. Approaching something as a “job” gives you a different perspective.

    But to apparently either not know, or not care what such a public admission does is just flat out wrong. And the fact that no one from NC State’s leadership said or did anything on this is pathetic.

    I promise not to link this very often, but I blogged about it here —

    The grammar is just as bad as the spelling… the person responsible for writing this is a dolt.

  21. redfred2 05/02/2008 at 5:37 PM #

    “Rivers to Holt” WT…???

    How about pairing these two NCSU ‘legends’ up?

    “Tab Thacker slams Lee Fowler”?

  22. BoKnowsNCS71 05/13/2008 at 10:14 AM #

    I got a reminder email about this auction today. I cut and pasted the illogic and incorrect info into an email and sent it to the Wolfpack Club. I told they they were embarrasing NCSU Athletics. Maybe some idiot there can read it to lee Fowler.
