#STATEMENT and STRIPE OUT

BwZ2bjHCAAAMS15

The Wolfpack is going all black for the game against Old Dominion. This is the Pack in Black uniform to go along with the black helmet with the wolf eyes in the back that was released earlier this year.

They really didnt make much of a statement in their season opening win against Georgia Southern……after hearing boo-birds in Carter-Finley at halftime, NC State rallied to win 24-23. North Carolina was also trailing their home opener in the second half before getting some turnovers and quick scores to beat Liberty 59-26.. Duke had no problem against Elon.

In other college football sports gimmicks. UNC is having a “stripe out” for the game against San Diego State.

Based on their ticketed section (see seating diagram), UNC fans should wear Carolina Blue or black to the 8 p.m. game vs. the Aztecs. Carolina students are asked to wear black and sit in the Tar Pit student section in the west end zone.

Now you have to color coordinate. The game is being billed as the “Kenan Stadium Tar Pit Stripe Out.” ……ok.

Football is Here!!

Looks like Johnny Football will be replaced by Kenny Football. Texas A&M sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill, set a single-game school record with 511 passing yards and led the Aggies to a 52-28  beatdown win over No. 9 South Carolina in Columbia. It was their first loss at Willaims-Bryce since 2011.

The ACC had one school start the season off on Thursday. Wake Forest traveled to Louisiana, only put up 94 yards of total offense, was shut out in the second half and lost to Louisiana-Monroe 17-10. NC State transfer qb Pete Thomas went 23 of 41 passes for 189 yards for ULM.

Breaking: Notre Dame suspends 4 amid academic inquiry

Welcome to the ACC, Notre Dame!

Unlike UNC, the Irish got some wins and a BCS Championship appearance out of their cheating… but similar UNC, they’re likely to end up with some vacated wins for their actions.

Discuss.

David Wilson forced to retire at 23

David Wilson was the 2011 ACC Player of the Year running back from Virginia Tech, and a first round draft pick in 2012 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. His brief NFL career has been cut short because of neck and spine injuries.

The Giants announced on Monday that doctors have advised Wilson, who is 23, to stop playing football due to the condition of his neck and spine.

ESPN.com said that Wilson injured his neck in a Week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013 and missed the rest of the season. He had spinal fusion surgery in January and was not cleared for full contact until July 21, the day before the Giants’ first training camp practice.

I don’t want anybody to feel sorry for me or pity me. I lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream.
