    #NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!

    Is that Heisenberg in the foreground?


    My eyes have seen the Old Glory. It’s time for New Glory. These are the names I want in a trophy case – Abu, Lacey, Brickhouse, Lee, Freeman, Barber, Corchiani, Martin, Martin, Wallace, Anya, Turner, Cannon, Battle, Washington, Henderson.


    None mentioned above have “won anything”…Are you kidding me??

    "Whomp 'em, Up, Side the Head"!

    Can’t believe they’ve cut the seating capacity in half… I’m sure the Hall will be nice, though.


    Maybe Fastback68 wants to see their names in a trophy case after they win, this year?


    Reynolds is gone forever and for me it leaves an all most overwhelming feeling of bittersweet melancholy. Not unlike losing one’s charter for four years because one jack— decides to build a moonshine still. But that is another story. Instead of getting into a pointless argument about change, I decided to look at the positives of the new renovation which includes the history of the building and some new trophy cases. It’s time to get some new hardware. When I read the last names of our current roster, hope finally moves to the backseat because talent is now riding shotgun. I know, just more fodder for this team “hasn’t done anything” argument. First game against strong competition can’t get here fast enough.


    Texpack Sr. was at State when Reynolds opened. He always told Dixie Classic stories about the early days of Reynolds. I still remember all of the hours I spent in there exploring when I was attending Norm Sloan’s basketball camps. My favorite times in Reynolds were the ones I spent watching Valvano run practices. For a basketball junkie, that was a pretty good fix. I’m sure if I ever see the inside of the revamped Reynolds it will be with mixed emotions. That building always had character. I just hope the remodel hasn’t stolen it.


    Honestly, I’m glad we are readapting the building to new athletic uses instead of just taking a wrecking ball to it, as has happened to many old on-campus facilities. Hard to believe the place is 65 years old this year.
