PA native in NC for 13 years - why I don't like UNC




I am not a fan of North Carolina State, but I sure do prefer the Wolfpack over the Tar Heels. I got my master's at East Carolina and I'll root for the Pirates, but I am and always will be a Penn State fan.

But when it comes to the teams in North Carolina, the Tar Heels are the easiest to hate. The reason is pretty simple. It's the UNC fans. I just don't get them. Most that I have met are utterly indifferent about their football program. I just don't understand how that can be. It's all about the basketball team. What I like about State fans is that you're crazy for both football and basketball. You're passionate. I appreciate that. So on Saturday you can count me in as being on your side. I wouldn't root for North Carolina against anybody in any sport and that includes Ohio State and Michigan.

I always enjoy talking sports with State fans and I look forward to my next conversation with a Pack fanatic.
