Those of you under the age of 30 (or older if you didn’t grow up in North Carolina) may not remember this, but the schoolyard used to segregate itself with this simple binary choice – State or Carolina. That’s it. Things got inevitably more heated during the winter, as UNC fans had a tendency not to like football until well into the Mack Brown era. But I could count the Wake fans in my school on one hand, and believe it or not, there were even fewer Duke partisans. Raleigh native, frequent NPR contributor, and hilarious essayist David Sedaris even has his own take:
Flash forward to February 23, 2011. On SFN’s message boards, we are discussing whether or not anyone really cares who wins tonight.
Doesn’t that sum up everything you need to know about the last two decades of Wolfpack hoops?
This can also be the open game thread, for those so inclined to want one.
