  1. Driving down the road in Dallas yesterday and saw this logo on a work truck. Funnily enough, the company's current website shows a different 100th year logo. I imagine they received a C&D from the folks in Toronto... This webpage shows the current 100 year logo, which is way better given their market space, as well as their 95 year logo which reminds me of a hybrid TBL/NJD anniversary logo.

  2. The ACC has long held a moral superiority over other conferences based on academics. Many folks, myself included, thought WVU would be a natural fit for the league but it seemed that many in power looked down their nose at WVU as it supposedly isn't the same caliber as the other ACC members. Of course, when Maryland bolted and they needed to fill another member UL was invited, a school which has never been on anyone's radar for having high academic standards (Not that I care, just common perception). Very frustrating to watch all of this unfold. Now living in Texas I see WVU come out here so often for games and I think how good it would've been to have them in the ACC.
  3. Bettman in Raleigh today; looks like a little discussion/consideration of a Stadium Series event. Would love to see it.
  4. NC State debuted these 1974 Throwback uniforms today against Bucknell: Here’s a 1974 photo for reference:
  5. Both participants in the MAC game are a combined 600 miles from Detroit whereas the closest participant in the PAC-12 game is 750 miles away. And that’s Utah. The one “right up the coast” is nearly 850 miles away. PAC-12 will always struggle with attendance until the game is moved back to campus or to Vegas.
  6. Completely agree. Hopefully something similar will pan out!
  7. Further reading on the makeover from Bowling Alley to Target in Raleigh: https://www.hillsboroughstreet.org/blog/post/award-winning-target
  8. Not the right forum for this, but Target recently opened a City Target across the street from NC State University on Hillsborough Street in a converted bowling alley. The bowling alley that was there used to be called "Western Lanes" and then "The Alley," and was popular hangout for NC State students. While the exterior doesn't have quite the same aesthetic, Target paid homage to the bowling alley with some of the artwork throughout the store.
  9. Scott Darling's "Whalers Night" gear has been posted. Great homage to Sean Burke. Excited to see it in action.
  10. Interesting touch on the NC State uniform. Design from the state flag ghostmarked on the ribs.
  11. Believe it or not, after the release of the new font, one of the ADs for State mentioned on Twitter that the new font wouldn't be on this season's football uniforms...but would be on the basketball uniforms. Full implementation by Fall of 2019 supposedly. I know, long rollout for this.
  12. As a Canes fan, my initial reaction was being underwhelmed. As the last 24 hours have progressed and I've seen it over and over again with all of the draft coverage on Twitter, etc., I must say I'm a fan. I get what folks are saying with the "Minor League" feel, but now when looking at the old secondary I'm more of a fan of the new one. Didn't think I'd get on board this soon!
  13. Furthermore, flipping that main image makes me think there’s a new addition somewhere featuring “NC.” Unable to do on my iPhone, but if someone could flip the image and link it they’d see what I’m getting at...
