There was lots of NC blue in Michigan a few months ago...If your talking exclusively about football, it's because it's been bad for a while. The fanbase traveled pretty well when Mack had them rolling. It's about winning.

Fans when they're winning, there's a term for that. On the tip of my tongue.

It's a reality for all fanbases. I've seen empty games at Carter Finley, and I've seen their bleachers clear at halftime of games as well. All fanbases are prone to this. State fans are so burned by their programs, and desperate to separate themselves from UNC's long shadow, they believe football is the best possibility - it may be. But it doesn't help them that the powers that be in CH aren't going to sit idly by and let that happen.

I disagree that Wake travels well Tweeder. Maybe football is different for Wake fans, but when they played Charlotte at Time Warner Cable arena in 2007, their showing was weak. I think attendance was somewhere around 12,000 and there were probably no more than 1,000 Wake fans in a city that is only a little over an hour away.

yeah but the size of Wake is only like 4,000 undergrad students, that is why I said for a small school they travel well


Look at VT who I think Travels very well has 23k undergrads and they bring anywhere from 5k and up to games

When I lived in NC, I went to games all over the state. It always seemed to me that NCSU and ECU traveled stronger than even UNC.
