Red and White from State
Here's a new column we will do from time to time: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, The State of NCSU Major Sports. What we're planning on doing is pointing out the bright side, the things that need to improve, and if there is anything that's really tough on the team, that as well. Hope you enjoy. Herb Sendek and the Wolfpack are to be commended for doing what they absolutely needed to do last night, which was get a road win in the ACC.

While the Pack victory is being called an ugly win, and indeed, looking at the statistics of this game, you might come away thinking that State simply avoided a bullet last night, and that they were the victorious team because they played only slightly "less ugly" than did the Yellow Jackets. No matter -- they did what they needed to do. And, there are no Russian figure skating judges to score the artistic merit of a win. Read More
