Changing of the (football) guard happened a few months ago, when UNC kicked some wolf tail over in Chapel Hill.
Triumph Jan 27, 8:53 p.m.
The excitement shown by NC State fans, and by WRAL TV (which opened last night's 11 PM news with 10 minutes of game coverage, while their broadcasting competition focused on the weather) illustrates the huge sports inferiority complex over in Raleigh. For Tar Heel fans to get that excited about winning a game, we'd have to win a national bass fishing championship or something (like NC State).

You was obviously high when you made that comment...what a mor*n.

Changing of the guard? When did this happen?
Hans Jan 26, 5:36 p.m.
I just shook my head when I read that, and I'm a State fan.
rduguyhere Jan 26, 5:36 p.m.
Well, the fact that UNC has won the last 19 of 20 games against the Aggies, it wouldn't surprise me.
rduguyhere Jan 26, 5:32 p.m.
I see dirty Dan Kane is up to it again on the News and State College Disturber website. Funny. This guy just won't give up beating that ole dead horse.

Looks like the majority of top 25 teams are going down today which may not be a good omen for State. Here's to hoping they can buck the trend. Go Pack!
kornfan2448 Jan 26, 5:22 p.m.
Oh, and you're the one that mentioned a "changing of the guard" which would be a reference to how teams have performed in the past.
kornfan2448 Jan 26, 5:05 p.m.
At least we don't have to hear 5 in a row anymore. Guess the past is only good to recall when it's in your favor.
Deacons Jan 26, 4:33 p.m.
Everyone is now off the State bandwagon due to their last 3 weak performances and on UNC's bandwagon since they are improving. Go opposite the crowd. State wins tonight.

You can't paint something that belongs to someone else

This coming from a State fan?
ugottabkiddinme Jan 26, 4:29 p.m.
yeah i know..i was just busting on some of the sillier pack fans on here
Dreamchaser Jan 26, 4:08 p.m.
Carolina fans remember the past, they don't live in it. They know that a great past makes for a great future.
Riddickfield Jan 26, 3:41 p.m.
Carolina fans, always living in the past.

I actually think they brought Game Day to the PNC as a favor to their former ESPN buddy, Gottfreid.
heelsforever Jan 26, 3:38 p.m.
Snicker. Of course you don't really believe that. Now, I would agree with you if you were talking about a group that didn't have any RECENT history to talk about, but I know you are referring to a program that has about 270 wins, 6 ACC regular season championships, 2 ACCT championships, 5 Elite Eights, 3 Final Fours, and 2 National Titles in the last 10 years.
ugottabkiddinme Jan 26, 3:37 p.m.
You're a mo ron....let's see the only reason gameday is there is because of the HEELS...do you really think they would come to see a the 18th place team play anyone else...especially since state is over ranked to start with and haven't won a National championship since around the advent of color TV..lmao...and yet you continue to try and be the sports post police.
RD n NC Jan 26, 3:17 p.m.
You mean the seats in PNC arena arnt Red? Who knew !!!
chivegas Jan 26, 3:11 p.m.
We don't paint the seats pastel pansy blue like CHeat so it looks like people are there. Then pipe in fan noise...haha
randrmomanddad Jan 26, 3:08 p.m.
Intresting to watch the officiating and cj Leslie...you don't show up the Ref's on national TV and not get some bad Kara down the road, just ask Rasheed Wallace.!!!
hurricane04343 Jan 26, 2:51 p.m.
Hanging onto history instead of being in the present is a sign of a declining program.
Sauras69 Jan 26, 2:33 p.m.
Turn overs will decide this one. State can run and pass to get easy buckets. UNC will have to get back on defense. WF did this well in the 2nd half.
jgilchr Jan 26, 1:52 p.m.
This game is make or break for the Wolfpack's season.
emb Jan 26, 1:47 p.m.
or 19 out of 20...
kornfan2448 Jan 26, 1:39 p.m.
HA! So an experienced NC State team that was picked to win the conference that has one fewer loss than a UNC team that lost 4 starters to the NBA is a "changing of the guard"? Okay.
taskmaster27858 Jan 26, 1:38 p.m.
Coach Gott should start CJ on the bench, then just maybe the real Calvin can enter the game without that sorry attitude...
Kenan-FlaglerAlumni Jan 26, 1:07 p.m.
I wonder how many times NCSU-Raleigh would remind Carolina if they had won 13 straight??
Riddickfield Jan 26, 1:04 p.m.
the hole obsession with all things NC State continues. More hole fans posting about game day being in Raleigh than anyone else.
I guess this is what happens when there is a changing of the guard. Go wolfpack!
lilloan Jan 26, 12:55 p.m.
Seen many of the Gameday telecasts? They limit the number of fans for security and staffing reasons. They turned away more than half of the people who showed up this morning.......
wlcat609 Jan 26, 12:15 p.m.
Let's just call the game the 'Battle of the Defenseless'! Neither team can guard their shadows.....
Gunnstigator Jan 26, 12:06 p.m.
They absolutely will rush the court, and I think they should. Carolina may not be ranked, but they're Carolina, and that's enough reason for Pack fans to celebrate.
kornfan2448 Jan 26, 12:05 p.m.

"Pack PNC Arena" - you mean, mostly fill one small section of PNC Arena?
Honesty first Jan 26, 11:07 a.m.
Do you mean on a local station or not lelevised. It is on ESPN.
rsmith6120 Jan 26, 10:21 a.m.
LOL! Not this one. Uverse channel 1602 ESPNHD
LetsGetHigh Jan 26, 10:10 a.m.
UNC owns NC State and this year is no different
PanthersFan45 Jan 26, 9:58 a.m.
You can see the excitement building for this one, home court will play a big factor. What I'm waiting to see is if the fans rush the court at the end. The Tar Heels are not ranked this year and they don't have a powerhouse like years past, but State fans may be waiting to erupt after not beating this team in the last 13 tries. If the Pack wins I predict they storm the court.
wjuliang Jan 26, 9:42 a.m.
On behalf of PackFanNation I want to thank the Heels for having such an awesome basketball program which is bringing so much attention to NCSU today.
Unc r Hypocrits Jan 26, 9:29 a.m.
It's called power. :(
$$$ buys it easily.
randrmomanddad Jan 26, 9:29 a.m.
Intresting to see how long it take's Leslie to get into foul trouble ...you don't show up the Ref's on national tv and feel no bad karma.!!!
kornfan2448 Jan 26, 9:02 a.m.
Another good local game not locally televised >:-[
GO TAR HEELS!!!
Native NC gal Jan 26, 8:42 a.m.
We have the Cameron Crazies. Not sure what we should call these fools.
Big Mike Jan 26, 8:34 a.m.
Wishing the Pack a great game against the Tarholes..!

Glad fans were able to make it to the PNC despite the icy roads. It may be cold outside, but it will certainly be hot inside the arena. Go Heels!
