After Thad Matta abruptly left Ohio State this summer, incoming freshman Braxton Beverly was granted his release by the Buckeyes and he transferred to N.C. State. The four-star point guard recruit (who once scored 70 points in a single high school game) hadn’t played for the Buckeyes or anything, and he’d only been at…
The Mark Gottfried era came to an end for N.C. State on Tuesday in appropriately unruly fashion, and for the first time since 1996, the final year of Les Robinson’s run, N.C. State will finish sub-.500 in consecutive seasons.
After denying reports it planned to fire head coach Mark Gottfried at the end of the season, N.C. State announced Thursday that it plans to fire head coach Mark Gottfried at the end of the season.
You may not immediately recognize the name Karl Hess—though if you're an ACC fan you probably do—but if you've watched a college basketball game where a referee pulled some look-at-me funny business while misapplying the rules, there's a good chance it was Hess. There was the time he ejected Tom Gugliotta from the…
This is a pre-emptive warning to my alma mater: Don't you ever fucking put No. 44 on any men's basketball player, for any reason, ever. I'm saying this because I know the thought will cross your mind and some point in the future, but I am ordering you: Do not fucking do this.
This photo of a batshit insane recruiting letter comes to us from the Instagram account Dexter Wright, a high school football player who has struck the fancy of N.C. State's director of player personnel, Drew Hughes.
You're going to have to watch this a few times, and even then you probably won't be able to properly wrap your mind around this insane catch from N.C. State center fielder Brett Williams. A full-speed diving catch that smoothly transitions into a mid-air somersault should be impossible to pull off, which is…
There was some world-class jagoffery going on in the Duke student section during last night's N.C. State-Duke game. In the second half, N.C. State guard Tyler Lewis stepped to the free-throw line and was reportedly greeted by a chant of, "How's your grandma?" from the Cameron Crazies. Lewis's grandma died last…
I'll be honest, I watched this thinking it would be stupid and boring and not worth watching. But you know what? It's kind of fun. And let's be honest, these guys are the red-headed stepchildren of Carolina, they deserve a little moment in the sun. So here's a little Braveheart-themed pep rally before yesterday's …
It's not the Yankees losing in the divisionals, nor a conference rival pantsing Alabama midseason. Nor is it quite the Lakers fizzling in May, or the Cowboys losing year after year after year after delicious year.
NC State upset Duke today 84-76, bringing to a close Duke's undefeated run and perhaps ruining their number one ranking, but who cares, because this happened at the end of the game: A young man in wheelchair zoomed out on to the court with the rest of crowd to celebrate the win, and Dick Vitale has a meltdown that…

Yesterday's ACC final between N.C. State and North Carolina was just a typical game for N.C. State in the ACC—oozing with controversy. N.C. State, you will recall, is the alma mater to Tom Gugliotta. Googs, of course, was unceremoniously kicked out of a game by ACC official Karl Hess little more than a month ago.
North Carolina dominated NC State last night, which has become something of a theme. The Wolfpack haven't beaten their I-40 rivals since 2007, so for fan favorite Scott Wood, that's tantamount to never.
The perils of live sideline reporting are such that even if you catch yourself calling a coach named Butch a bitch (as in, Jones of Cincinnati), a lot of people notice. And giggle. And take video of it and send it in to websites that may or may not post a six-second snippet of said slip.
Does someone get this? Because we're not sure we get this. Southeastern college basketball was only recently liberated from the tyranny of Bruce Pearl, its chief coach-mascot, and now it's got another one on its hands.
Don't ask how, but we got our hands on one of NC State freshman star forward C.J. Leslie's class assignments. It's spectacular. It must be shared with the world.
