Interesting until your "true color" came out... what a ridiculous thing to write. Grow up!


I'm with Tom. No self-respecting Tar Heel fan wishes Dook well in any endeavor. I even rooted against the Dookie on Jeopardy's college championship last night.

I don't hate Carolina, but I like rooting for their opponent almost as much as I like rooting for Duke ('94). I was thinking yesterday, though, it's really tough being an ABC (Anybody but Carolina) fan as you are bound to be disappointed about 80% of the time. Not to mention, their awesome penchant for coming back and winning when lesser teams have them on the ropes leads to even more ultimate disappointment. Having a great rival like Carolina does make being a Duke fan much more fun.

Joe Blow needs to relax. Quit taking yourself so seriously. Nobody else does.


A few comments. 1 - What makes you think fans of other schools particularly care about this game? How much do you care about the Maryland-UVa game or the Wake-State game? Few of the State alums I knew watched this game last night, and NONE of them rooted for either team. Some may have rooted harder against one team, but the general consensus was to hope for the building to collapse. (If you're curious, I am here because an NCSU message board posted a link to this page while joking about the results.) 2 - Duke 19%, NCSU 18%? Have you ever been to North Carolina? 3 - "Respect the flagship"? Which flagship? Most NCSU fans respect NCSU, one of the two flagships. Some of them probably also respect UNC, the other co-flagship, and Duke, the top-rated school (public or private) located in the state.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
