To say that this week is important would be the understatement of the year. Fans across the state of North Carolina have been anxiously anticipating this Saturday since October 16 of last fall. Out of all of the celebrated events that happen in the state annually, it is hard to dispute that this one is the granddaddy of them all.
Homecoming at Greensboro A&T is obviously a big deal. However, I just hope some of you will delay your travels to the 336 this Saturday long enough to take in our game against NC State at 12:30. I know what you are thinking. “Caleb, past performers at the Aggie Homecoming include Rick Ross, Wale, Gucci Mane, J Cole, and Drake. And that is just in the last two years. Who knows who might be there this time around? There is absolutely no way I will miss it.”
After a lot of thinking, I realized that I couldn’t really come up with a sound case to dispute your point; at least not in writing. But then one night in a dream it hit me. The only way that I could possibly convince you to hold off your travels to Greensboro until later in the afternoon would be to really excite you about our game. When I woke up, I immediately took action. I understood that there was only one thing for me to do: film myself doing something extremely dangerous that would raise your level of interest in our game. Following this plan, this week I took my normal pregame scouting report to the next level by journeying into the heart of the NC State campus and interrogating Wolfpack insiders about our rivalry game. The following video is the result, and nothing would make me happier than to share it with you. Enjoy.
Crib Call of the Week: The first step in successfully competing in a rivalry game is having a healthy respect for your opponent. I would like to take this opportunity to recognize a former NC State great, Russell Wilson. Russell is in the midst of a great rookie campaign in the NFL for the Seattle Seahawks, and although some of you might remember him as a Wisconsin Badger, he actually was a part of the NC State Wolfpack the majority of his college career. His stint in Raleigh came to an end when he decided to go play professional baseball with a Colorado Rockies farm team. As destiny would have it, this farm team was none other than the Asheville Tourists in Asheville, North Carolina. Russell, this one goes out to you brother.
Until next time,
