When the N&O conducted an anonymous poll among the players at ACC media days, the results were not surprising. Carter-Finley Stadium received the most votes for least favorite place to play. Most annoying fanbase? NC State took that one, too.
“I just don’t like that place at all,” said one player. In other words: mission accomplished, everybody! Nice work all around. Let’s make some noise for, uh, making noise!
It’s a compliment that players on opposing teams don’t like coming to Raleigh, and being as annoying and disruptive as possible is something Wolfpack fans have prided themselves on for a long time. It beats the alternative—Wake Forest got a couple votes in the “most hated venue” category, and I don’t think that’s for the ambiance.
The players also were asked which quarterback was the most underrated, which led to guys responding with their own team’s signal-caller. That’s just being a good teammate right there. Among the players deemed overrated, Bam Knight got a vote. Wonder which Wake or UNC player is responsible for that one.
