You Better Discount Double-Check That ACL

Detroit Lions middle linebacker and NC State alumnus Stephen Tulloch showed his true wolfpack roots on Sunday with a classic LOL for the ages.

After sacking Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers on 3rd and 10 early in the first quarter, he immediately jumped up and tried to mock Rodgers’ trademark Discount Double-Check. Unfortunately for Tulloch, his knee couldn’t withstand the intensity of his celebration and gave out underneath him. He tore his ACL and is now done for the season.


Abort!! Abort!!!

LOL. After state’s plagiarism of ECU’s midfield logo blew up in their faces in classic ncstatelol fashion, they have decided the day before their game against ECU to abandon the idea and destroy the evidence.


After Carolina players got a good laugh on the logo following their November 2nd victory at Carter-Finley, lord only knows what the actual victims of state’s plagiarism would have done in a victory celebration. Clearly, that was a situation that state wanted desperately to avoid.

“This Place is Unreal Bro!”


“WHAT UP Big Time?!!” Reading like a bad unbelievably terrible Under Armor commercial, this NC State recruiting letter leaves no doubt that the new football staff will fit in perfectly at UNC-Raleigh. Perhaps the most embarrassing part is that while this is meant to come across as a personalized, hand-written letter, the cut-off letters on the left side clearly show this is a photocopy.  wow… lol@state

Update: Another recruit has posted his identical copy.



These letters seem to be getting everywhere.  Check these out for more hilarity:

Tom O’Brien Moves Out

Moving trucks from his new employer arrived in Downton Raleigh today, as Tom O’Brien packs up for a new home. O’Brien’s exit from Raleigh has been merely a protracted formality ever since his October 27th defeat in Chapel Hill.

Yow Acknowleges That They Shouldn’t Have Kicked to Gio

In what is becoming a trademark move of Debbie Yow’s style of directing the athletic department, she sent out yet another email to some of the more dedicated Wolfpackers who had sent her messages about Tom O’Brien’s decision to punt the ball to Gio Bernard at the end of the UNC game on Saturday.

I am writing a group email this morning to those who have expressed their concerns about the loss to UNC-CH. There were a couple of issues expressed by several of you that I will respond to as best I can below:

(1.) IN GAME DECISIONS: ADs do express opinions and ask questions in private to their Head Coach about game decisions/strategies that do not work well, but it would be highly unusual for an AD to publicly criticize any strategy employed during a game. I agree with that philosophy of communication…no matter which sport it might be.

(2.) SPECIAL YEAR: I am aware that this was anticipated to be a special year for us, with the possibility of playing in Charlotte the first weekend in December for the ACC Championship. That appears to be out of reach now with the loss to UNC-CH. As unsatisfactory as it might seem to you today, the only comment I have at this time is that I continue to remain focused on doing whatever I can to support the efforts of this team and staff. Our young men played a gritty and determined game against UNC-CH in an extremely hostile environment and I want them to know that their fighting spirit as our student athletes is truly appreciated.

acknowlege and regret the considerable disappointment you feel. The majority of you communicate your issues with respect and class. Thank you for that, as well. I hope to see you in Carter Finley for our Homecoming game against Virginia.

In the spirit of the Pack,

Debbie Y.
