Leave the free expression tunnel at N.C. State alone


We beat NCSU at everything, not just sports. Out of all the schools in the ACC, they have the worst ranking in the top colleges in the nation done by U.S. News and World Report.

N.C. State continues to think that four consecutive years of last-minute lucky wins over us in football constitute a rivalry. UNC makes sure to condemn N.C. State’s insistence that they are our rivals, but our behavior says quite the contrary.

Painting the free expression tunnel practically screams that we acknowledge them as worthy competitors. This is not necessary. That school dulls in comparison to us in every aspect, so the “not our rivals” chant is not needed. We are going to too much trouble to prove UNC is better, and the recent painting of the free expression tunnel shows a lack of class.

Demolishing them in every athletic competition and taking the Snoop Dogg concert from them is enough embarrassment. After all, that school does not even have a bell in their “bell tower.” How legitimate can anything else on that campus be?
