    True that!

    Someone pointed out (on another blog) that if we take care of business between now and then, we would very likely be ranked in the top 10 going into that game.

    How stupid would we look if we, ranked 10th in the nation, rushed the court after beating an unranked team (EVEN the Holes)? I just don't see it happening. I think State students even know that would look bad.

    We'll have to re-visit this just before that game.

    Wait and see, friend. Wait and see. I have faith in my Wolfpack brethren.

    I admit, this one could go either way. Pretty much every current student in that building has never seen State beat Carolina in basketball while enrolled at State... so it could happen. I just think (hope!) it won't.

    Obviously, we never enjoy losing to Carolina. And ending the 13 game losing streak is important to us. But still, (IMO) rushing the court should be reserved for the most special wins. Beating Carolina is special in the sense that it has been a long time since we last did it. But it won't be a special game, or take a special effort. This is (finally) a year that we should be fully expected to beat them.

    If that happens, I'll be shedding a tear like Iron Eyes Cody in that famous commercial from the 70's. (He's a native American, and in the commercial he was sitting on his horse by a road, watching "typical" Americans driving by in their car, tossing garbage out the window and onto the ground. A single tear rolled down his face...)

    That's kinda how I'll view it if we beat Carolina, and the students rush the court. I did this once before. We beat Wake (sure, they were ranked kinda high at the time...) and rushed the court. All I could think was "you never rush the court after beating Wake... EVER... in ANY sport." Poor things just didn't know any better.

    State hasn't beaten Carolina much recently. The last time I remember was in '07, and I was driving home from work and I don't remember if State stormed the court. If State wins, even though it's against a bad Carolina team, it's still Carolina, and that light blue will have State fans seeing red, and they'll storm the court.

    OK, that's funny. Sort of. I did wonder about that: will the fans storm the court if State beats Carolina? This is a down year for Carolina, and beating them won't be as fulfilling as beating them in other years, but it's still Carolina, there's still that 0-13 streak, and we ARE your rivals, so I can see the students rushing the court. Maybe they'll do a slow walk down to the court:)

    Very true, Tommy. My State friends always seem to be waiting for the "other Nike to fall", and in past years, it did.

    This year is different, this team is different. And State fans should be optimistic. The players have finally started to believe; now it's time for the fans to believe as well.

    Good luck tonight in College Park.

    I did forget about the court-rushing part, but Duke was ranked 6th in the nation at the time (per your linked article). And it was a huge upset that no one saw coming. And the domination was complete. We ran them out of the gym that day.

    When Lowe was coach, it was huge surprise when State won a game let alone beating #6.

    If and when the WolfPack defeats UNC in basketball, UNC fans will be highly offended if the State fans Do Not rush the court. For that reason alone, I hope the fans do not rush the court.

    That's a good candidate for rushing the court, and we did.

    UNC in 2012-13 is nothing of the sort.

    I actually created a blog over at PP with the sole purpose of getting opinions on this. I think maybe TWO responses either condoned rushing the court after beating Carolina, or said we SHOULD rush the court if we win. Nearly everyone else said no. Several said it would be embarrassing, or that it would give the Holes credibility they don't deserve.

    The final seconds were ticking away when Sidney Lowe finally broke into a smile and pumped his fists at his players from the North Carolina State sideline.

    Then he vanished, mobbed by his assistant coaches as he disappearing in a crowd of red-clad fans running to midcourt to celebrate.

    "I didn't know they were going to storm the court," Lowe joked.

    See TB? You really need to stop feeding Hans.

    TB, you posted a hypothetical comment without any evidence to support it. When have we rushed the court after beating Carolina when they were not ranked in the top 5 in the nation? Or ANY team for that matter?

    And Hans, you agreed with him without any logical reason for doing so. Because you LIKE any strawman argument you can use to attack State and State fans.

    Ah, but it does matter. You don't rush the court just because of the name on your opponents' jersey.

    It's important to beat your rivals and all. But beating Duke was HUGE for us for multiple reasons. And they were ranked #1 in the nation. Seems like we didn't even rush the court the last time we beat Duke a couple of years ago. But we did this time because it was so much bigger.

    I don't think we will. I will personally be embarrassed for State if the students rush the court after beating an unranked team we are widely EXPECTED to beat.

    I don't think we will. I suppose ending a 13 game losing streak COULD be justification for rushing the court, but I hope we don't. That just gives the Holes more credibility than they deserve. Hopefully you only rush the court for a SPECIAL win.

    Hans doesn't want State fans to celebrate ANYTHING.

    The Duke win was a side effect of the reasons we have to celebrate. It is RESULTS of having a good coach, good recruiting, etc.

    Nothing wrong with celebrating and storming the floor after a win against a #1 team. Now, if State beats UNC and they storm the floor, I would have a big problem with that. UNC is not ranked and isn't a threat to winn the ACC or NCAA Championship. At least not yet. State also will not win the rest of their games this year and no one has said otherwise. I have not seen on television or the internet where some of the players are still celebrating. I only see the media hyping this up at this point.
