NC State: 33 Years and Counting


To celebrate last night’s win which completes the sweep of NC State in men’s basketball during the regular season once again, we thought we’d update an old graphic that was created while the Wolfpack’s ill-advised “Our State” advertising campaign was ongoing.

Yes, it has been 33 years since the Wolfpack has won a national championship in any sport except… wait for it… Bass Fishing.  North Carolina might be NC State’s state on a level much different from the one they attempted to promote, but that stat is definitely theirs.

  • NC State is 3-30 against Roy Williams.
  • The last time the Wolfpack had a coach with a winning record against UNC is when they had Everett Case on the sideline from 1946 to 1965. Case was 25-19 against the Tar Heels.
  • NC State is now 77-153 against UNC in men’s basketball.

To be fair, it’s difficult to excel in anything else if you spend every waking moment focused on how to bring down UNC.   Or should we say “UNCheat”, the not-so-ingeniously creative way those adorable whimpering pups now refer to the Tar Heels?
