    ^^^The ACC does have two teams in the BCS Bowl Series. Clemson and VT. This has not happened in a long time. The Orange and the Sugar are impressive Bowls. Just hoping that VT can play smarter than they did against Clemson. Go Hokies.

    I stand corrected on the 4 in a row thing. State's 2003 Gator Bowl was technically tied to the 2002 season.

    OK...so, with less conviction, UNC is currently on a 4 bowl appearance streak.

    And just so you know, State has now been to bowls 3 out of the last 4 years.

    But we do appreciate your concern. :)

    Just do not see how all the press is predjudiced against state college. I continue to hear that from different state fans. The good coverage comes with having quality..winning programs...unfortunately thaat has not been the case for the pack. Maybe in a few years with more coaching changes it can happen.

    — Posted by jrj6950

    What we don't know is how many people were not interested in being interviewed. Those count as rejections. We learned that during State's last coaching search.

    Plus, it's all subjective. With Carolina, they never get rejected. No recruit ever turns them down. If a recruit doesn't choose to go to Carolina, well you can guarantee that Roy didn't offer him a scholly. It's never a case of Roy figuring out if a kid wants to come before offering in order to reduce his number of "rejections".

    No doubt it's the same here. If this had been State's coaching search, WRAL would have been running articles all along talking about every "rejection", regardless of who rejected who.
