BRING FORTH MORE LAME SMACK TALK, ECU.
A commenter mentioned yesterday that NC State is changing up the midfield logo for the UNC game to something very similar to what East Carolina has. That rumor appears to be ... true? This fellow tweeted out the photo you see below, then ended up deleting it not long after I retweeted him. I don't know who that guy is, and I dunno, maybe this is just photoshopped (any eagle-eyed experts out there in readerland?). Anyway:
I actually like it fine, but the thing is it's, you know, a blatant rip-off. I'm all for mixing things up a bit, whether it's with the uniforms or something like this, but it would be nice if State could figure out something that hasn't already been done by a school down the road. They at least had the decency to rip "this is our state" from a program several states removed.
But this is still 100% unconfirmed. We'll know soon enough.
