Here is something you don not see everyday. Complete books of ACC Tournament tickets going for fifty cents on the dollar. You can see the ‘Pack (and Heels) play for $13 on Thursday night. Do you tink it is the economy, ACC expansion, lack of decent ACC teams?
On March 8, 1968…
On March 8, 1968… …NC State defeated the Duke Blue Devils in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament semi-finals by a 12-10 score in one of the more unusual games in Tournament history. The Wolfpack was primarily responsible for slowing the pace and scored only one basket in the first half, trailing Duke 4-2 at halftime. […]
NCAAT: Where teams come from does matter
This will be the 13th of the last 18 basketball seasons that NC State fans will turn thoughts regarding the NCAA Tournament towards other teams that we can root both for and against. Personally, I am conference/NCAAT/RPI/etc junkie. So, I thought this was a pretty good read to help set college basketball’s current landscape with […]

Mid-Season ACC Review
As we reach the mid-point of the regular season and move into conference play, I thought it would be interesting to take a little time and look at what has been accomplished thus far in the season. So here is a summary of Stateâ€™s season to date: RPI Rank â€“ 96 OOC SOS Rank â€“ […]
The Less Interesting But More Important Coaching Carousel: The Assistants
The annual shuffling of coaches is well underway, of course, with coaches moving up, others moving on and schools scrambling to fill empty slots while their is time to save their recruiting efforts for the year. We aren’t making any changes here at NC State, of course, but the one thing that we as fans […]
Pack doesn’t lose! while conference season develops
FINALLY!! I Saturday of football passed without NC State losing a game and without one of our opponents winning ACC Player of the Week honors! Great work by Mike Archer for holding the Idle Byes to a big goose egg on the scoreboard. Speaking of the conference, we’ve got some really interesting items for you… […]
