    Well no actually you are wrong about that. College athletics would exist but given that it appears that generally the best athletes are average to below average when it comes to either the extent of effort they apply in the classroom or in their God given academic prowess, the schools that dominate on the field would simply be different. Junior Colleges like Louisburg, Wake Tech and Central Carolina Community College would have the best basketball teams. That 850-950 SAT would get that great running back into Fayetteville State or UNC-P. That is the way it really should be. Think about it!

    You must be new to college sports.

    If athletes had to meet the same admissions criteria as normal students at a given university, college athletics would cease to exist at a competitive level. Basketball players for UNC, Duke, and NC State have SAT scores that average in the 900s...and I'm sure other schools are the same way.

    I really enjoy the unc fans telling us how bad we are as far as academics. I heard DG on the radio the other day informing us that unc, duke, wf and va were worried that louisville would not be able to match the above schools academics. I hope they don't match unc's. They don't have any. How can DG have the gall to say that, knowing many unc FB & BB players are not college material per Ms. Willingham's statements last week. I would say if you put their players in the same classroom as other schools players with an impartial instructor unc's would finish at the bottom of the class. I bet you about 70% of their players should not br in college.

    Has anyone ever called you superficial? Told you you're overly concerned with appearances and social standing? You certainly seem to attach an awful lot of importance to what the USNWR thinks of your school, or what the WSJ thinks of your school, or the number of Rhodes Scholars affiliated with your school. It's a strange thing to be hung up on...

    Isn't State only the fourth best engineering school in the ACC? And that is what you brag about?

    Here's a news flash: UNC's academic rankings in various publications have actually gone up since the "scandal" broke. You know why? 20,000+ students with 4.0 GPAs out of high school and SAT scores from 1300-1600 tend to impact a university's academic standing more than five or six athletes who are just there to play sports.

    Want to know another fun fact? UNC just put out another Rhodes Scholar this year...our 49th one. That's more than any other public university in the country has put out. Care to guess how many Rhodes Scholars State has produced? Big, fat zero.

    But those are just facts.

    There you go again. Thinking it's all about UNC. Losing to your rival one time after 5 straight wins never gets a coach fired. Everyone, except you apparently, knows it was the no-show team the following week losing to a 2-6 (I believe) Virginia team, at home, that sealed TOB's fate. But, that's okay. We are used to Carolina fans always thinking it's all about you. I used to hope that eventually you people would get over yourselves, but I realize that's not possible. At least you're consistent.

    Sure, but first, ask yourself besides the #1 team in the nation, which State wouldn't get scheduled for regardless, what two cupcakes did the pack lose to again? yeah, that's what I thought. It's just the fans that want to delude themselves. Especially when their stellar team under-achieves yet again to start a season followed, I am sure, shortly by them falling off the cliff of mediocrity once more. Humors me that you state braggarts get so frazzled about UNC even at the merest mention of the Heels in any story or discussion thread. It's cute, really it is. :)

    Yes sir, those super smart journalist majors at UNC are really looking down their noses at those bio-chemist at State. By the way, some cleaning crews make more money that some journalist. Also, due to the costs of schooling, staff, offices, insurance, etc, some of those doctors from UNC have to work 8-10 years to catch up with the earnings of some of those engineers from State.

    Looks like the UNC fans panties are the ones all in a wad or they wouldn't be on a State forum. Their school has become such a joke that there really isn't anything to talk about on their own forums so they come to State's to make themselves feel better. If you think you get to us, think again, we are the ones enjoying knowing that you are so obcessed with State that you spend more time on here than your own forum. Thats the biggest compliment you can give us. Thank you!

    Because of the embarrassment UNC has become over the last couple of years, a lot of UNC fans feel like like they put down other people it makes them look better. Kind of like a thief saying I roobed a store but I'm not as bad as him, he robbed a bank. Anything to make them feel better and justify the last couple of years instead of being an adult and taking responsibility. If they can brag about their school's academic ranking and be responsible for that, then they are also responsible for the short comings. But thats how ABCers were created, while most UNC fans claim its because of envy, the fact is most ABCers are ABCers because of UNC's arrogance and lack of morals.

    I'd rather be ranked 200th and earn it honestly that ranked higher by fraud. UNC's academic ranking is no longer anything to be admired by anybody other than UNC. UNC's rankings will drop quite a bit and everybody else is already laughing at you. Kind of like the doork looking in the mirror and pretending how mucho he is while everybody else sees him for exactly what he is.

    LOL. That is really funny coming from a school that has achieved its academic rating in part by cheating. You have to know by now that a lot of people are questioning UNC's integrity as an academic instituation, not just ABCers. For UNC fans to even talk about another schools academic ratings is a joke and I really don't think UNC fans have a clue about just how pathetic it makes them look.
