    ESPN's power rankings have the #Pack9 listed at No. 2 in the nation and the top ranked ACC program. Other notables are FSU at No. 8, Clemson at No. 9, and UVA at No. 11. Season kicks off Friday!

    Preseason is always the best season here at NCSU, and this year is no different!

    I have this vague recollection of the usual suspects carrying on and on about some preseason ranking. I can't quite place it, though. Does anyone else remember something like that?

    ^^^^^further proof that pansies HATE facts (ESPN has them ranked higher than her pansies).

    In FACT, they've got quite a few teams ranked AHEAD of the pansies.

    Take cover, here come those pesky facts again...

    Internal and external investigations have shown that about 200 lecture-style classes were offered in that department, dating to the mid-1990s, in which there is little or no evidence of any instruction. Investigations also have found that roughly 500 grade changes were suspected or confirmed to be authorized through the department.

    On March 8, a SACS report to UNC stated that 173 of the 384 students signed up for those classes were student-athletes.

    The report further breaks down the athletes by teams. Eighty-eight were football players, according to the report, 22 were men’s basketball players, one of whom was on the junior varsity team, and 15 were baseball team members. Fifteen other sports were represented.


    http://www.newsobserver.com/2014/01/23/3558705/the-no-sues-unc-chancellor-for.html

    The better question is, which sports does UNC not cheat in?

    ...again, a link to anyone "cheating"...NCSU has no show/independent study classes, heck you can even take a class without giving them your transcripts at NCSU and they brag about it...try again, we've all read what you posted, but you still have not provided any link that a baseball player "cheated"...what do we call that bowling class at NCSU that has a near perfect GPA average, Advanced Physics 501? Go sit down and put the big boy pants on Harr. There is nothing you can post that will get you out of this one, and your hate has put you "under my thumb" because you have NO FACTUAL PROOF of "cheating" by a player...if that were the case the NCAA would have already required a suspension and forfeiture of games...now get back up on the porch and wipe that e-blood off yo lip...man, I am so good at absolutely decimating you...

    Explain to me why you need a link. Having those classes at UNC is a way to CHEAT academic rules of the ncaa. You don't need a link to prove that. 15 baseball players were enrolled in those classes. Can you not put 2 and 2 together here? They cheated plain and simple. They may have been good students that can get good grades but wanted to have a few easy hours of classes in a semester. That still doesn't change the fact that those classes have been proven fraudulent. And if you are involved in those classes then your are going to be labeled a cheat. As a state fan I don't want to see any of the schools in the ACC going through this. It helps no one and affects everyone. Yeah we are all going to have a joke about it here and there but own up to what is going on. Stop denying it and fix it.

    Do you have to end every post by incessantly high-fiving yourself? Maybe it's due to insecurity, or perhaps depression (sincerely hope this isn't the case), but honest to God I've never seen anyone pat themselves on the back as much as you - no matter the outcome of the preceding dispute. Generally speaking, if you have to say it, it isn't true. Keep that in mind next time you go on some long winded rant that ends with you telling everyone how awesome you are. But I digress...

    Again, I LINKED an article that specifically noted baseball players were involved in the sham classes at UNC. It's laughable that you're trying to pass off 200+ no show classes and 500+ grade changes as "independent studies". If that were the case, then why was a UNC faculty member INDICTED for fraud? If they really were independent studies, then why did UNC feel the need to come forward and apologize saying that "horrible things have happened that [we're] ashamed of"? By your vice chancellor's own admittance, "the "integrity of [your] university has been badly damaged" and it wasn't from offering independent study classes. It's from offering no show classes to prop up athletes' eligibility and CHEAT the system.

    Regarding the NCSU comments, if we had the same scam going on then where is the SBI investigation? When will our department chairs be indicted for fraud? It's quite ironic that you keep requesting "factual proof" yet here you are spouting off baseless claims without a shred of evidence (not a link in sight).

    And what do we call a bowling class at NCSU with a near perfect GPA average? Non existent. In pouring over grade distribution charts that go back to 1997, the highest percentage of A's handed out in bowling was 36% back in the fall of 1998 by a Professor Leath. So unless you have access to records that predate NC State's, I'd say you just slung a bunch of **** against wall and hoped something stuck.

    Well, it didn't.

    It was the first game of the season and we just couldn't get the bats going. That said, Canisius is no slouch of a program and they'll more than likely make the tournament again this year. Avent made some great to the lineup yesterday it really woke the bats up as we cruised to an 11-4 W. Rodon didn't start off this year the way he wanted but he'll get things sorted out. Bank on it.
