    An opponent is a microaggressive term. I am offended and will contact Jack Dorsey at Twitter to have your account suspended.

    My middle child was born in Cary, NC and the mom and pop restaurants have outstanding food.

    It wouldn't surprise me if this scheduling becomes irrelevant because they will have become an SEC member by then. They are probably the best option for the SEC to expand its footprint in a lucrative market.

    UVA or UNC would be far better additions than NC State. Not even close academically, let alone national prestige.

    Always thought NC State and Va Tech fit more into the next expansion of the SEC than any other options. Raleigh is one of the fastest growing areas in the south (TV revenue) and Blacksburg socially fits in better with UT, UK, etc than with BC, UVa, Duke, UNC, Miami, etc. Add these two and we can shift Mizzou to the west where they geographically belong.

    Then we should go after Yale and Harvard. That should bring a lot of revenue into the conference. /s It's true that UNC and UVA are looking better in football, but neither are likely to leave the ACC for basketball.

    I don't think you'll see NC State ever leave their NC bros and Clemson, it's isn't like A&M which spent years trying to get of Texas' shadow.

    I think NC State plays a little dirty at times and I don't care for their HC Dave Doeren

    NEVER leave a game early! NEVER! I'm 82 now and never left a Gator game early because every game needs to be savored...after all who knows when you've seen your last game. Enjoy the moment win of lose.

    Many good banjo players from North Carolina, Earl Scruggs and Don Reno being two outstanding examples.
