Also see: While we are talking about copied logos
For you folks who don’t do The Twitter or might be in bed before this made the rounds, there were rumors flying that Carter-Finley might have a new logo on midfield for the UNC game.
you can see this tweet from Triangle Radio producer Hayes Permar
Dark out at C-F but friend managed to snap a pic of the Piedmont. Trust me, the rest is there… http://t.co/3rPEbeVK3I

which was later confirmed by Wolfpack Offensive Linemen, Tyson Chandler
@NCSUFan101 it was white tho they might have painted the red in after practice

For what its worth, there are also rumors of new uniforms for Saturday but that is yet to be confirmed so who actually knows. They could wear pink skirts for all I care, as long as they win and/or it helps recruiting.
Our friends over at BackingThePack.com have a good analysis of the whole situation:
I actually like it fine, but the thing is it’s, you know, a blatant rip-off. I’m all for mixing things up a bit, whether it’s with the uniforms or something like this, but it would be nice if State could figure out something that hasn’t already been done by a school down the road. They at least had the decency to rip “this is our state” from a program several states removed.
The tweet of the night goes to theDevilWolf
If NC State REALLY wanted to troll UNC, they'd put the actual ECU logo at midfield

One thing I wouldn’t mind them stealing would be the #hashtag in the end-zone that Mississippi State had for their Thursday night game a year back. Drop an #OurState or #PackNation in there one of these games.
Oh yea, one more thing that we can all agree on…. GO TO HELL CAROLINA! Go Pack!
