If you’d ever like to get in touch with us about anything, please drop us a note at SportsChannel8NC@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to post it so everyone can see what you sent us privately.
Thanks for your letter. While we’ll be the first to admit that we venture into the “homer” side for all of North Carolina’s college and pro teams, I can assure you that we would never, and I want to make this clear for emphasis, never hire anyone with a J-school background.
We go where the news goes, and right now the news takes us to UNC football. If the internet had been around back then, I promise you we’d have posts about the disrespect Duke received in the polls in a nearly identical run in 2013, and you can bet that we would have dropped a fire Ms. New Booty or Ridin’ Dirty parody to celebrate Wake’s ACC championship in 2006. And if State had done anything during that time frame, we would have been all over that as well.
You do bring up an interesting discussion, however. What if UNC had lost that day in Atlanta? My guess is they never recover and we’re sitting here talking about a red-hot Duke team, which gives you a 75% chance of still hating the work we do here at SportsChannel8. So don’t blame us. Blame Georgia Tech.
The “cheaters” comment makes me assume that you’re a fan of the Wolfpack, however, so three things on that assumption …
- Please forgive me if I’m making an incorrect assumption, that’s not fair of me. NC State has wonderful fans who love their team very much, and every fan base across America has a subset of their population who just wants their rival to crumble.
- When there’s news on the NCAA scandal, we won’t shy away from it. Sure, we’ll run it through legal first, and then we’ll give North Carolina a heads-up about it to make sure they’re cool with running it so we don’t burn any bridges. That’s not North Carolina specific, though. We’d do the same for your favorite school.
- Here’s a previous post we ran about a month ago featuring an adorable dog who cheers for the Wolfpack.
Hang in there, Anonymous. We’ll do something to make you laugh and share us with your friends in no time. Go Everyone, as long as they’re from the state of North Carolina.
