Hold that Tiger!

Clemson University vs. North Carolina State University

Choke him, poke him, kick him and soak him!

It’s gonna be a tough crowd at Death Valley this weekend as the Clemson Tigers square off against the NC State Wolfpack.

The Red & White showed that they have plenty of spitfire in them last week when they gave #1 FSU a pretty phenomenal scare. Let’s see if the Pack can sink their teeth into these cats!

Beat Number One

Florida State University vs. North Carolina State University

Yep. We’re facing the number one team in the country.

That country is called the United States of America.

And we’ve got plenty of questions to ask ourselves. One of those is how we talk about the people who were here before it was made the United States.

In recent years, there’s been discussion regarding FSU’s use of Chief Osceola as the “symbol” for its Seminole mascot. Obviously, the treatment of Native American mascots is a major conversation in sports, and it’s something I’ve continually been a part of.

On the surface, arguing about “cartoon characters” may seem ridiculous, but it is a microcosm of an ongoing discussion in this grand experiment called America. The argument’s persistence proves that we still have many questions to answer about our identity as a whole. We’ll just have to keep talking and working through it

This year, I decided NOT to use the Chief in the cartoon, but to use my own mascot, based on Cimarron.

No, this isn’t an answer to anything. But we owe it to ourselves to continue a conversation that started as soon as European feet were planted in the soil of “The New World.”

If you’ve got a second, take a look at my pal and EXCELLENT graphic designer Brittain Peck’s website whiteskins.org.

If you’re STILL not convinced on how the Skins can still be a TOTALLY #$@%ING AWESOME BRAND without the name, check out his %$#@ing rad designs for a Washington Warriors brand.

You will totally drop a jaw.

Up Their Nose With a Rubber Hose!

Presbyterian College vs. North Carolina State University

Can the Wolfpack get to 4-0 this week? We’ll see on Saturday, as the Presbyterian Blue Hose visit the NC State Wolfpack on their home turf in the City of Oaks.

Will the Red and White remain undefeated? Will the Scots turn the tables and put a damper on State’s momentum?  What the heck is a Blue Hose anyways?
