    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.

    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.

    Why are you scouring the Daily Tar Heel, TBK?

    — Posted by Hans

    Probably the same reason you scour PackPride.

    — Posted by Just.B.Cause

    So, TBK is a Heels fan?

    — Posted by Hans

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

    — Posted by Just.B.Cause

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

    Comments about UNC being the flagship are made for one reason. Because it gets under the skin... View More

    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.
