I went undercover to ask NC State students what they thought about UNC

‘Tailgating with wine and cheese and being really boring around a fireplace’

I took some time during fall break to visit some of my Wolfpack friends on State’s campus.  While there, I decided to see what our fake “rivals” really think about us, and it wasn’t pretty.

I kept my real Tar Heel identity a secret so I wouldn’t skew their answers, but that doesn’t mean their words didn’t sting.

First word you think of when I say “UNC”: “Ew.”

Typical UNC student: “I don’t know if there’s a good word, but I think of tailgating with wine and cheese and being really boring around a fireplace.”

The general consensus seems to be that NC State students hate us because we are preppy cheaters who don’t even know how to throw the best parties. But c’mon – we know the truth. It’s always a GDTBATH.
