Really good article about how happy Carlos Rodon is in Raleigh.
Three years into his Wolfpack baseball career, Rodon still maintains that enrolling at NC State is “the best decision I’ve ever made.”
That choice goes well beyond his baseball accomplishments, which include an undefeated record as a freshman and a stellar sophomore season in which he led the nation in strikeouts (184) and strikeouts per nine innings (12.51) and led the Wolfpack to its first College World Series appearance in 45 years.
“I just like being here,” says Rodon, a sport management major. “It’s a special place for me. It was a tough decision to choose between signing with the Brewers and coming to school. I was kind of on the fence. I thought I might be ready for professional baseball, but looking back at it, I know I wasn’t.
“I had a lot of growing up to do. Clearly, it was a better decision to come here.”02/19/2014 at 7:54 PM #41800TheCOWDOGModerator
Ruffles …That’s a good pull.
And maybe so good, no one could appreciate the post, when folks are so consumed in State nihilism.02/20/2014 at 12:36 AM #41815pakfanistanParticipant

THIS is the reason college sports are special and the “kids” need to realize how important the time is to their own development. When I say development, I mean both athletically and socially.02/20/2014 at 6:59 PM #41854elvislivesParticipant

Love it. Kill ’em this year, lefty.
