November 24, 2018 Kerlina vs State College
Post by John Rancke
What better way to end the regular football season each year than to play the Tar Heels vs the Wolfpack on the Saturday after Thanksgiving!
Culture vs Agriculture, Blue vs Red, Good vs Bad, Bankers vs Farmers, Wejuns vs Mud boots, Cheaters vs real students, the ugly Big Blue foot of yesteryear vs the Coyote in the 1960s, a basketball blue blood vs National Bass Fishing Titles.
Carolina vs State. Let’s face it neither team has won an ACC championship since Carolina won it in 1980. State won one in 1979. Years of ineptitude. 38 for Carolina and 39 for State.
Throw the record books out the window. Kenan stadium will be a sea of red Saturday. They have beaten Carolina 3 in a row and going for 4. Bragging rights! Hostility abounds.
So in the uproar and all the name calling I offer Andy Griffith and his description of Carolina vs State as recorded many years ago and still so perfect. Over 800,000 copies of the 1953 have been sold.
