It’s Carolina/State This Weekend For All The (Leftover) Marbles

February 13, 2010
The really sucky ones that are chipped that nobody wants.

Yeah, this is the second meeting between State and Carolina this year, and if it’s possible, there’s even LESS interest in this game than the previous go-round in Raleigh.

In January we knew Carolina was struggling, but State’s win over Duke was still fresh enough in everyone’s memories to give hope that the Heels could be beaten.

After losing that game–and every conference game since–the wheels have come off and the team that once showed fight and grit and hustle is now taking poor shots, standing around on offense and giving up easy buckets on defense.

So both teams, State and Carolina, enter this game with a “well, let’s just get this over with” mentality. Could this be the first time NEITHER teams’ fanbases care to attend this game? Could the Dean Dome be half-filled for this one? It’s possible, especially given the weather.

If State wins tomorrow, that’s great. Anytime you can beat Carolina it’s a plus, and it would help pad Sidney’s lousy record against the Heels (1 win so far). But just about everybody on both sides of this once-great war have checked out, including seemingly some of the players.

Tip is at 4:00, for those that care.
