Daily Strut * Saturday

The weekend webrun is lacking in NC State content other than NC State beating Wake in baseball 5-4. Duke's most ungraceful exit from the NCAAs continues to be all the buzz, as there will now be an investigation and "possible penalties" against Duke's Matt Christensen. The "possible penalties" remain unclear, as Matt has seen his last NCAA game. Perhaps a good caning might be suggested. If that is a bit harsh, maybe Coach K will censure him and strip him of his legacy as a prime time piner.
