The good guys vs. the evil empire

What??
Well, tonight (9pm) the defending national champion, #21 ranked, North Carolina Tarheels are going to Raleigh to play #15 NC State. There is a lot riding on this game, not the least of which is the Wolfpack seeking revenge for the loss earlier this year in Chapel Hill.

Isn't this a MUSIC blog??
Yes, we'll get to that. But see, I went to NC State and the games each year against UNC mean a lot to me and the rest of Wolfpack nation. See, for those of you with no sense of history (speaking mostly to Carolina fans here) there IS in fact a long standing rivalry between NCSU and UNC. The fact that NC State was awful for the entirety of the 90's caused the rivalry to fade in the minds of UNC fans as the whole nation started watching Duke vs. UNC. A ton of money has been made off of building that rivalry up, and I understand that current students of UNC see Duke as their rival but I'll tell you what; when I moved to North Carolina in 1987, on the very first day of school, I was asked "State or Carolina?"... I've never looked back since answering that day. Thank god I picked the good guys to root for.

Below you'll find MP3's of some NC State songs. Download them and play them all day as you get PUMPED UP for the game tonight.

NCSU Fight Song - lyrics and info
The Red And White Song - lyrics and info
NCSU Alma Mater - lyrics and info

These MP3s were found HERE where you can also find MP3s for a bunch of other schools...even Carowhina if you must.

GO PACK.


UPDATE: Damn. !@#$#@!@#$. Carolina flat out kicked our ass. Well done Tarheels. GO PACK.

I went to school at UF, but my adopted team up here is NC State. I'll be watching the game with some of your fellow Wolfpack tonight. Good luck.

Nice post on the fight song by the way.

UNC sucks . . . and I've pulled for NCSU since the '83 run (so long as they're not playing SU). I was damned young at the time, but I remember watching the '83 game with my dad, of course pulling for the underdog against the arrogant villan UNC.

I'm going to go old school on ya w/ a little ryhme that was popular back in the day. *cough* *clears throat* "Duke is puke, Wake is fake, the team I hate is NC State"...or who can forget that old time classic of "You can't go to heaven in a red canoe, because God's favorite color is Carolina blue". All kidding aside. I've been a Carolina fan since 1987 when I moved to NC and was forced at gunpoint to choose an ACC team. It's unbelievable the hysteria that goes on during the ACC tournament. We used to have whole classes throughout elementary-highschool schedlued just to watch ACC basketball. No matter what team you support, ACC fans are the most dedicated & knowledgeable!

You say Carolina fans have no sense of history, yet you're the one who is saying that Carolina sucks. . .

Anyways, I've lived in North Carolina my entire life and it's always been the UNC-Duke rivalry that's been "THE Rivalry." We'll see how it goes tonight.

Okay, I knew better than to address my love of the Wolfpack on here...I'm pretty superstitious...so, sorry about that one to my friends and other fans of the Pack. Totally my bad.

Anyway, great - really great game for Carolina. Awful, terrible game for NC State. I'm still excited about our chances in the ACC and NCAA tourneys and I look forward to our next game against BC.

Glad some Tarheel fans stopped by...Jason up there knows exactly what I'm talking about as that's how it used to be in NC. Now, I'm not saying that Carolina sucks (clearly I'm not a fan but...) because they obviously don't suck. I just don't like them. But Gold-Coloured Glasses, you're proving what I was saying. Most younger Carolina folk tend to not see State as a rival because we keep sucking ASS every time we play you guys.

Whatever, bring on the tourneys (bring on the UNC fans talking shit to me on here) and GO PACK!!

NC State and Carolina are my favorite teams but if they're up against each other I pull for whoever wins. Otherwise I like them both. But i still think "Duke is puke Wake is fake the team I hate is NC Statte...you can't go floating down the river in a red canoe because God's favorite color is Carolina blue" is kinda awesome.

I turned to Frank and found him grinning.

"You saw it all along," I accused.

He shrugged. "I tried to tell you."

"You did?" I thought back to the day before and realized that maybe he had. I'd been too busy using my own mouth to notice.
