Key point is to grasp the implied mental state of most State fans (alumni in truth, State has no “fans”) when it comes to sports.
Classic paranoia and narcissism would be the best way to describe it, constantly on the edge of doom only to be pushed over the edge by checking a score, changing routine, or hoping for the best. That may be a mental state which has changed in Raleigh due to the xx chromosome being at such a high percentage since the gals are always beating the drum of good feelings and hope.
So no, I did not watch the game and State won. State won in football x number of years in a row and would have continued the streak had not my wife yelled the score to me from the veranda only to then say “oh……..unc just ran a punt back for a touchdown”.
Does that explain it or were you born after 1980?
