Are those state wide or local? I actually expect us to do better than unc/state if they are playing a low level opponent this year in the local ratings. But good showing nonetheless!
Charlotte market. I'm sure State captured the highest market share in Raleigh by a wide margin.

Nice. We'll see how the ratings do this week.
As far as in the stadium. I hope this week is just like last!

I'd bet its more some combination of wanting his name on a stadium, trying to one up McColl and Everett and a way to profit at some point in the near future.

His grandson is on the coaching staff, but he donated to have his name on the field before his grandson was even hired. It wasn't until almost a year later that he decided he also wanted to have his name on the stadium so he donated $10 million more.
More than anything he just wanted to support the hometown team. He said Charlotte is his home and he wanted to invest in his hometown team.
In addition to the $10 million, he donated an additional amount to endow a scholarship in the name of his son that just died.
