    I prefer eating thistle but I'll eat roots when they are pulled up for me. But the Taproot is too chewy. Let's call UNC the Radish and NCState the Carrot. They're both tasty roots.

    Well there you go. It must be true , Obama said so. I guess the national media is a little confused. They all probably went to kerlina kommunity kollege, K.K.K. that is.

    TBK wins the prize!

    Yes....technically, state college (and UNC-Greensboro) are also "Flagship institutions" of the Great UNC system.

    I'm amazed it took anyone that long to figure that out.(It also makes it even funnier at how upset state college fans were..and ARE...when The Taproot (only ONE of those) is referred to as The Flagship.)

    We'll see if that changes now heh heh heh.

    Nice work TBK! :-)

    As a Wolfpack fan and alumnus, I could not possibly care less about NCSU being the "co-flagship" with Kerlina Kommunity Kollege (KKK). We at NCSU do not need silly, self-appointed nicknames or titles to have pride in our institution. The only thing more worthless than a Tarholer's opinion, is the Tarholer him/herself.

    Hans implicitly admits that in about 99% of his posts.

    Except that it doesn't. Like I said, I never even respond to those posts. But this one was too priceless, given how important it is to the Holes to think of themselves as the flagship. :)

    Who said I was scouring the DTH, Hans?

    Is "scouring" a website the only way to get a link to an article there?

    I had a somewhat similar thought recently, only I was thinking we could call UNC The Titanic, and NCSU The Iceberg.

    Did you just admit to being a Heels fan Hans? I have no doubt that is exactly why you scour PP.

    I know that sometimes people get UNC and NC State confused, especially those that are not from this area. As such, they mistakenly think the term "flagship" can be applied to either. To avoid confusion in the future, I propose that from now on we refer to UNC as "the flagship" and to NC State as "the dingy".

    You do not scour PP because you are a State fan so try again.

    ... engineering programs at the UNC system's R'dneck flagship institution -- N.C. State University -- just 25 miles down the road...

    I'd stick with that instead of taproot.

    No one ever cared about "flagship" until Withers mentioned it. And the only reason why he mentioned it was because he had nothing else to say that was better than State's dominance of their football program.

  • Metta World Biff Feb 20, 2013

    Comments about UNC being the flagship are made for one reason. Because it gets under the skin of State fans...and former State football coaches.

    Am I the only one who thinks this whole argument a lot of silly hokum? Much less the recent "taproot" argument on the UNC board? (Boy, doesn't that one just roll off the tongue...LOL)

    The whole thing reminds me of Clooney's character arguing that he is the "pater familias" on "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou". Something a little pathetic about making the argument itself.... it reeks of insecurity.

    Why are you scouring the Daily Tar Heel, TBK?

  • TruthBKnown Banned Again01 Feb 20, 2013

    And before you shoot the messenger, keep in mind this is from UNC's school paper. No State fan wrote this.

  • TruthBKnown Banned Again01 Feb 20, 2013

    Say it isn't so! Apparently the DTH thinks so:

    http://www.dailytarheel.com/article/2011/10/4e9cdd0b0371eLOL

    I really don't care if State is thought of as a flagship or not. I never even respond to those comments. But this seems pretty important to the "UNC flagshippers", so I thought I would help them out. They seemed to believe a misconception, that there is only one flagship in this state.

    Heh heh! ENJOY!
