Sustainability Office introduces conservation tool Tool is part of larger campaign to reduce campus energy consumption by 5 percent. Joshua Chappell Senior Staff Writer
The University Sustainability Office introduced a new tool that allows students to see exactly what is using energy in various settings around campus, including residence halls, offices, classrooms, kitchens and laboratories. Through this tool, students can manipulate 360-degree virtual rooms to determine the energy consumption of various appliances and other devices. The web-based tool is designed to contribute to the Change Your State campaign, according to David Dean, outreach and communications coordinator for the University Sustainability Office. “Change Your State is a behavior
change campaign to educate the community on how to lead a more sustainable lifestyle,” Dean said. “The current goal of Change Your State is a 5 percent reduction in energy for N.C. State, which would equal roughly $1 million.” According to Tracy Dixon, director of the University Sustainability Office, the idea for this campaign was spawned from students in a class in the Poole College of Management. “Lynn Ellis in the [Poole] College of Management taught a creativity class, and we told her class that we want to have a behavior change campaign class that is interesting and effective and asked what we should do,” Dixon said. “The class presented ideas to us and from that we formed the Change Your State Campaign.” According to Dean, the specific idea for the virtual room tool came from a similar function of Arizona State University’s Campus Metabolism web portal. The tool was developed by Spring-

tion devoted to sustainability, but we have three full-time staff, two grantfunded positions and two part-time student interns.” Rachel Conley, a senior in fisheries and wildlife science and the chair of the Student Government Sustainability Commission, said she thinks the new tool will be effective. “[The tool] is an eye-catching feature that specifically brings attention to vampire energy or dormant energy consumption via things like chargers that are left plugged in or lamps not in use,” Conley said. Conley said, however, the Sustainability Office should not just limit their marketing of the project to students living on campus. “This tool can reach more students if the University Sustainability Office markets this tool as a way to reduce your energy bill,” Conley said.

Sophomore in chemical engineering Alex Lloyd remains in the hospital with serious injuries after a vehicle struck him and dragged him down the road Oct. 20. Lloyd sustained injuries across his body, including broken vertebrae and ribs. Raleigh Police Department Public Affairs Director Jim Sughrue said files will not be charged against the driver. While crossing Western Boulevard at the intersection of Dan Allen Drive, Lloyd was hit by a GMC truck driven by Thelton Best, junior in agriculture management. He crossed when the “Do Not Walk” sign was flashing, and therefore police did not charge Best, according to the wreck report. Best did not stop for five feet after impact, the report said. “[Best] hit me and knocked me on the pavement, then ran over me. I tumbled underneath [the truck]. He didn’t put on the brakes when he hit me; he kept going. Then he stopped,” Lloyd said. Lloyd said he had five broken ribs, a broken shoulder blade, a broken collar bone, four broken vertebrae, a punctured lung, pelvis broken in two places, two sprained ankles and a se-

As UNC-Chapel Hill’s athletic director of 15 years, Dick Baddour, prepares for retirement, UNC has been preparing the paperwork for a competitive contract with his replacement, Bubba Cunningham. Cunningham, who has previously been the athletic director for the University of Tulsa, signed a six-year contract assuring him $525,000 in annual salary, as well as a $40,000 expense account and a bonus structure, according to Chapel Hill’s athletics department. When Baddour was asked to elaborate on how a half-million dollar salary could be justified in light of the UNC System’s removal of hundreds of educational positions, he responded by saying such questions should be referred to the chancellor’s office and UNC’s press staff. Baddour, reluctant to speak about the salary of his replacement, did offer to elaborate on the responsibilities of an athletics director. “[The responsibilities are to] lead and manage very complex organizations, to manage, in this case, an over $70 million budget, to be responsible for all the personnel action, and all the student athletic programs in place as well as the sports programs, to [over-
see] the building and maintenance and operation of facilitates, to conduct major events on campus. That’s just to name a few,” Baddour said. Chancellor Randy Woodson’s salary is $420,000, according to publicly available documents. N.C. State’s budget in 2010-11 was $1.2 billion, according to the University website. When N.C. State’s Athletic Director Debbie Yow was asked to comment on the spending that goes into securing an athletics director, she offered background information, but asked to not be quoted, saying it was not her business to look into how other schools spend their money. Yow’s salary is $450,000, according to a data set aggregated by USA Today regarding athletics director salaries. Dutch Baughman, executive director of the Athletic Directors’ Association, elaborated on why athletic director positions are so hard to fill, and why it is necessary to offer competitive salaries. “Over the past 40 years, the role and responsibility of a director of athletics has changed significantly,” Buaghman said. “Today, if you were to ask the executives of companies that are involved in these searches, they would be very quick to tell you that what they look for today in an athletic director would be very similar to what the corporate world would look for in a CEO.”

Student Occupier arrested Graduate student finds herself in jail for trespassing while protesting. John Wall News Editor
Eight protesters were arrested downtown Thursday night at Occupy Raleigh, including one student. Police charged Katina Gad, a graduate student in design, with second degree trespassing — a type one misdemeanor. Gad said one of the reasons she was arrested was she was sitting in a chair. “I was sitting in a lawn chair on the sidewalk holding a sign. I don’t understand how sitting on a chair on the sidewalk can be considered trespassing,” Gad said. “Police say ‘sit up, stand down.’ We have video of them saying we can sit down.”
Officials were not planning on arresting people tonight, according to Gad. “I walked into the state Capitol building earlier today and they said they weren’t planning on arresting people. They just wanted to remove items [such as chairs],” Gad said. Gad said the arrests are far less important than the message Occupiers are trying to get across. “I intend to protest economic injustice. What’s important is getting equality for people. I want to keep the focus on the pure, real meeting,” Gad said. “I have nothing but the best intentions.” Jim Sughrue, public affairs director of the Raleigh Police Department, has been handling all requests from press regarding Occupy Raleigh. He was out of the office Thursday night; therefore, a statement was not obtained.

Currently, Forbes notes that North Carolina’s unemployment rate is at 10.2 percent. According to open records from Duke, N.C. State, UNC-Chapel Hill, Wake Forest and ECU, the average yearly salary for North Carolina’s athletic directors totals $588,001. The average salary nationwide was $423,526 according to the USA Today data set. North Carolina High School Athletic Association associate commissioner, Rick Strunk, has previously worked in college level athletic departments. When asked to comment on the spending differences between college athletics directors and their high school equivalents, he pointed out that in high school, athletic departments are subject to budgets set by the state. “It would be difficult to compare the two,” Strunk

Dixon said it will be marketed as an educational tool at first, but the opportunity to expand is certainly present. “In the beginning, it will be a promotional tool that we use in educational campaigns to show students that they can actually make energy savings,” Dixon said. “At some point, we’d like to make it even more interactive and connect it to an iPhone application.” Dean also said the education aspect of the tool will be most valuable. “It allows students to discover these realities on their own instead of us attempting
to convince everyone ourselves,” Dean said. “I think the message is more powerful that way.” Conley said the nature of the University should lend itself to make great strides in sustainability. “N.C. State should not be leading just the state, but the southeast when it comes to sustainability efforts,” Conley said. “As a land grant institution, we are given all the tools we need to succeed in such a field.”

When a group of civil rights activists traveled down the country from Washington, D.C. in 1961, they were unaware of the impact they would have in the ongoing battle for equality. This past Wednesday, the Office for Institutional Equity & Diversity provided students with the opportunity to learn more about what the Freedom Riders accomplished a half-century ago. Portraits of the 1961 Freedom Riders, part of the Dialogue on Diversity program, took place in the Witherspoon Student Center, and gave two speakers a chance to share their experiences learning about the historic group. Eric Etheridge, author of Breach of Peace: Portraits of the 1961 Freedom Riders, was the first to speak. Etheridge spent four years working on his book, a visual record of the Freedom Riders, the challenges they faced, and the change they helped bring about. Etheridge explained how following the bus boycotts and sitins, the Freedom Riders made up the third major campaign of the Civil Rights Movement. A group of both black and white individuals rode two buses from Washington, D.C. with the goal of reaching New Orleans. The ride was developed in order to test an earlier Supreme Court ruling that banned racial discrimination
in interstate travel. Upon arrival to Alabama, a great deal of violence met the riders, with numerous attacks in Anniston and Montgomery. Finally, in Jackson, the group was arrested on charges of breach of peace. The rising tension as the Freedom R iders t raveled through Alabama gained national attention, and many urged the group to abandon the project, Etheridge explained. “We celebrate the Riders today,” Etheridge said, “but at the time, nobody was on their side, even the civil rights groups.” However, upon the group’s arrest, Jackson, Al., became the focus of a new non-violent protest movement. Riders flocked to the city, boosting the arrest numbers and causing local jails to overflow. As a result, federal authorities were forced to enforce federal laws on desegregation in the south, in order to end the incident. Etheridge said this outcome was another major step forward for the Civil Rights Movement. “It showed non-violence was a solution against violence [used] to keep African Americans down,” Etheridge said. “It was a way forward.” The numerous arrests led to a plethora of mug shots; it was these images that became a major basis of Etheridge’s book. “I was captivated by these images,” Etheridge said, “and wanted to bring them to a larger audience.” After the four years spent working on the project, Etheridge was able to provide a collection filled with the mug shots, as well as interviews and current photos of about 100 Riders.
The second speaker, Doo’a Dorgham, a senior in psychology, was also given the chance to meet and talk with Riders still alive today. Dorgham spoke about her experience on the 2011 Student Freedom rides, which gave 40 college students from across the nation the chance to travel the same route as the original Freedom Riders, some of whom were also a part of this trip. Dorgham found the opportunity to be around the Civil Rights icons an honor. “I was so overwhelmed with the original riders and how humble they were,” Dorgham said. “To be in the presence of people who dedicated their lives so we could sit together was very humbling for me.” Dorgham’s presentation of the 2011 Student Freedom rides provided an insight into how the Riders look back on their time in the movement, as well as a look at the activities the 40 students were able to participate in alongside the Riders. “It was a very emotional experience to be with [the original riders],” Dorgham said. The event closed with a question and answer session with the speakers, and Dorgham expressed her desire to see more students work to make equality a constant on campus. “If we want to call ourselves a Wolfpack family,” Dorgham said, “when any one of us feels [oppressed], it’s our obligation to come together.”

After stealing the idea for our traditional Krispy Kreme Challenge, our baby blue neighbors to the west are setting their sights on our football tradition.

t N.C. State, we strive to be as cordial as possible with our baby blue neighbors to the west on a daily basis. We allow them the privilege of entering our city. We, free of charge, allow them to bask in the glory of our football team. We allow them to play with all of the technology we produce. We comfort them when they look in the mirror and realize they’re not the shade of blue they want to be. We do almost everything but remove the tar from their heels, and they repay us by stealing our doughnuts? This is something we cannot allow.

the Bell Tower to Krispy Kreme and back cements our unity, as it is an event unique to us. To take the event and rebrand it, with the same distance and rules, is not something unexpected, but it is disappointing. If the attack on our doughnuts wasn’t enough, those baby blue sheep are already gearing up for their next blitzkrieg on our traditions. A week from tomorrow we will be allowing them to lose on our field, but for some reason this is not enough for them. They’re actually attempting to leave with a victory. We have a football tradition here and to try to take something you know you can’t have is just bad taste.
Their assault will begin with our fabled tailgating. This would not be bad if they had experience tailgating, but have you ever been to a tailgate in Chapel Hill? Neither has anyone else. Not knowing what to do, they will attempt to leech onto our tailgates, stealing our food, drinks and fun. We allow a lot to transpire at our tailgates, but we will not allow for an argyle-clad invasion. Their next point of attack will be the football team itself. In actuality, this will be a continuation of a war they’ve been losing for the past five years. They got new players, a new head coach and even cheated, but nothing has worked. Let’s be
honest, as hard as they might try to copy our football team’s success that’s just not going to happen. Bookies aren’t taking bets for that game. Unable to steal another source of our excellence they will likely try to quell their feelings of inferiority through chants of “not our rivals.” This sentiment is correct — a rival is a team you occasionally beat. We don’t want hostility, we want to be friends; however, it’s hard to be pleasant with someone who will not give to Caesar what is Caesar’s. Absent of an ideological rebirth over the next week, we must band together, alums and students alike, to hold off the sheep as they try to steal another one of our traditions. They may enter as rams but they will leave as wethers.
LOOK INTO THE PAST
This section is devoted to drawing upon past Technician articles & columns and how the issues N.C. State faced then have changed over the years.
from the archives:
“Military force is always this nation’s last option. Yet, if force becomes necessary to disarm Iraq and enforce the will of the United Nations, if force becomes necessary to secure our country and to keep the peace, America will act deliberately, America will act decisively and America will act victoriously with the world’s greatest military. ” In a speech delivered at the U.S. Naval Station Mayport in Florida, President George W. Bush reinforced the rhetoric that has been common in the Oval Office during the past months: Iraq must be disarmed even if it means America must go to war. Bush’s case for war is found-
ust 24 hours after this article was published, President Bush issued an ultimatum to Saddam Hussein and his family demanding they leave Iraq within 48 hours or face military consequences. Af ter 48 hours, Bush announced the U.S. and coalition forces had begun Trey mi litar y acFerguson tion—the war Viewpoint Editor in Iraq had begun. We have spent the last eight years with military presence in Iraq. Soldiers are fighting and dying for freedom in a war many see as a lost cause. President Obama has announced the war “seems to winding down,” with the return of our troops, by the end of December. Only time will tell if Obama’s promise turns out to be just another political stunt for reelection, or a quarantine for military families to see their soldiers come home. It is important to understand the impact this war has had on our nation’s history and how it will influence its future. This so-called war is actually not a war at all; the last time the U.S. declared a state of war was in June of 1942 with World War II. Everything since then has been a military engagement, but not a state of war.
ed in the premise that Iraq has been in violation of U.N. resolutions and a 1991 cease-fire agreement after expelling U.N. weapons inspectors from the country in 1998. Bush took his case before the U.N. Security Council on Sept. 12, pushing for a new U.N. Security Council resolution to demand that Iraq allow weapons inspectors re-entry or face serious consequences. Iraq unconditionally accepted their return four days later. Now, after the weapons inspectors have presented their findings before the U.N. Security Council, Bush and his cabinet continues to search for international support for opposing Iraq and the timeline for war seems to be winding down.
This is a common misconception, especially with our military presence in Iraq. This engagement changed the way Americans look at war, especially our generation. We have grown up in a state of war, which we have come to define as negative, unsupportive attitudes toward the reasoning behind the U.S.’s involvement in a country we have no business being involved in. We have a heightened awareness of our patriotism and those serving in our military, but not the cause they fight for. Because of this, the leaders who will emerge from our generation will be more impacted personally by military policy. They will be more conscientious about the effects military actions have on American society and will be more conservative when using it as a part of their foreign policy. This war in Iraq has certainly caused a great deal of tragedy and has many negative effects on our nation; however, the positive changes it will have to the future begins with how our generation allows it to be shaped. Our predecessors may have got our nation into this mess, but our generation decides how we get out it. Because of this, the knowledge and opinions gained from this engagement are vital to how our nation will continue to support democracy and its freedom.

Recall the vending machines
olleges around the country are going green. Here, there’s a recycling bin in every dorm room, and on every corner we turn, there’s somet h i ng on t he wa l ls expressing the importa nce of recycling. The hope of this effort is that Nijah Toshumba anyone Staff Columnist who has a recyclable would place it in the recycling bins around campus and not just toss it in the garbage. I have to commend the importance N.C. State puts on being green, but I also must raise the question: are we green enough? I don’t think we are. There is always more we as a society and a campus can do to go just a little greener. The recycling bins in dorm rooms are a plus, but they are not everywhere. The culture is such that most people would rather trash their bottle than hold onto it until they find a recycling bin. In an effort to get greener, I think we need to focus on something that most colleges would overlook, because it’s such a common thing to see on campus — the vending machines. Vending machines are full of recyclable materials. There are about 200 soda vending machines
on campus; some hold plastic bottles and some hold aluminum cans. The numbers really add up if you consider the seven-to-nine varieties of cans found in each machine. I recognize that having vending machines around campus is useful. You get thirsty, slide your card, make your selection and go on with your day. At the same time, I feel like we contradict ourselves when we talk about how important it is to go green and then endorse so many machines. Even if we d id rec ycle every single plastic bottle or a lu minum can that came out of the machine, the very next week it would b e re f i l le d w i t h m ore bottles that took so much energy and pollution to make. It’s a pointless, never-ending cycle. If we stop allowing vending machines on campus, we’ll send a positive and green message. We’ll also benefit from the simple yet obvious fact that soda is not good for you anyway. It’s a win-win situation. Only big business takes a loss here, but they deserve it. Somehow, the makers of our soda products think slapping a recycle slogan on the back of a bottle erases all the damage that has been done in the past few de-
cades. If one wants the taste of a refreshing soda, go to the dining hall where you can have all the choice of sodas you want, but you will not be using a plastic bottle or an aluminum can to get it. This is more sustainable. If we can go green and do what is right for our environment, we should go all the way. I am not saying to remove all plastic material from campus, because that would just be unrealistic. However, something like a soda vending machine that really does not benefit anyone in any way c a n be moved out, and no one would miss it. I am pretty positive one would be more willing to give up a soda bottle than live with the conscious knowing they are adding to the destruction of our environment. Even if the soda vending machines never get removed from campus, be sure to recycle every chance you get.

Hristo Danchev, a sophomore in industrial engineering, said he used to practice Mixed Martial Arts, but it didn’t seem very practical. Danchev said the practicality is one reason he was drawn to Krav Maga. Throughout the session Woodward stressed his desire for his fellow club members not to learn to fight an attacker, but to learn to defend oneself from an assailant, stating repeatedly it’s better to run and be safe than to turn to fight and risk coming into further danger or harm. “Krav Maga can be an important tool,” Woodward said. “[It] encourages them to survive.” Photo by Andrew So

Dissecting regional North Carolina dialects From the coast to the mountains, North Carolina has a wide range of dialects. Eric Rizzo Staff Writer
Our University embodies diversity through many avenues; however, one side street that most people don’t think about is diversity in dialects. According to English professor and linguist Walt Wolfram, there is no state with more diversity in dialects than North Carolina. “Dialects are one of the unrecognized resources and treasures of N.C. State,” Wolfram said. Wolfram is the director of the North Carolina Language and Life Project (NCLLP), which aims to do “hardcore” research around the state and then share that research with the public, according to Wolfram. The variety of North Carolina dialects make it tough to come up with an exact number,
the country, you aren’t as much according to Wolfram. “It depends on how you cut of a member of the commuthe pie,” Wolfram said, “but nity.” So why exactly does dialect our [NCLLP] dialect map idenlink a community? Matthew tifies six dialects.” However, he also said that Watson, an anthropology prothere are sub-dialects within fessor, said dialects set community experiences apart. the six major categories. “Dialect indexes, or express“Even w it hin Johnston County, there are different di- es, a common set of social experiences, alects,” Magbecause one gie Banks, a Dialects are one of associates freshman in language fashion and the unrecognized with place,” textile manWatson said. agement from resources and FurtherPrinceton, more, acN.C., said. treasures of cord i ng to Wolfram Watson, said dialects N.C State. when peo signif y culple identif y tural links to Walt Wolfram, English professor speech that communities and linguist sounds simiand display a lar to their rich history.

sense,” Watson said. This ideology is quite common even if you don’t necessarily think about it. According to Banks, she was in an elevator and noticed that the guy next to her had the same dialect, so she initiated a conversation involving the common dialect, resulting in a discussion of their common hometown. According to both Wolfram and Watson, the amount of dialects is increasing in the U.S. Wolfram believes this to be a reaction to globalization. “People want to be from somewhere,” Watson said. “We want to belong to something, and dialect is an association to a community. [A rise in dialect diversity], I think, is evidence of the importance of language to expressing individual and cultural identities.” According to Amanda King, a sophomore in psychology originally from South Florida, someone’s dialect shows where they came from and, therefore, shows part of their cultural
background. “It [diversity in dialects] makes communication more interesting and gives people a whole other aspect to their persona,” King said. According to Wolfram, everybody has an accent. “Some are more noticeable but every time you use a vowel or certain words, you are using your accent,” Wolfram said. While you may have thought that dialect was only the way in which someone speaks, Wolfram indicates that terminology is also a part of someone’s dialect. We often recognize our own dialect when we are presented with dialects that are different from our own, Watson said. Banks had this experience when she came to N.C. State. “I never noticed it [dialect] until I came to college.” Likewise, when King came to North Carolina, specifically Wilmington, she noticed that she had a hard time understanding some of what people

were saying because of their southern drawl. It was then that she realized her dialect was different and, therefore, present. Wolfram said when meeting new people with different dialects, celebrate the diversity. “I think dialect is as important, if not more important, than any other cultural artifact,” Wolfram said. “Culture is embodied in language.”

Art museum hosts Rembrandt collection Raleigh museum to house renowned paintings for a short time. Story By John Wall | photos By Tim O’brien

“It all starts in practice. I think us practicing better and practicing with more enthusiasm is what helped the most,” Kuhn said. “It’s the focus in practice and the sense of urgency. People understand more and more what they have to do and be where they are supposed to be.” Another weak point for the Pack was the offensive line. Though it was supposed to be a strength going into the season, the line gave up 17 sacks through the first six games. But the game against the Cavaliers told a completely different story. Redshirt junior offensive guard R.J. Mattes felt the offensive line, which didn’t allow any sacks against Virginia, needed to improve not only for the team, but for redshirt junior Mike Glennon as well. “We’ve been getting better each and every week. O-line is getting better, we’re allowing fewer sacks each game and take hits off Mike,” Mattes said. “He’s out there controlling the offense, you can see it with his stats.” Mattes felt he and his fellow offensive linemen would have to really be on their toes to counter the Seminoles defensive line that ranks amongst the best in the country. ‘They are real athletic guys. We’ve got to put our track shoes on for the defensive ends, seeing how quick they are off the ball,” Mattes said. “We have to have perfect steps and perfect sets. Otherwise they are going to beat you right off the edge.” Regardless of the win-loss record or ranking of the Noles, coach Jimbo Fisher has recruited two consecutive classes during his tenure that ranked in the nation’s top 10 and No. 1 in the ACC, according to Rivals.com. Coach Tom O’Brien acknowledged Florida State and praised the consistency they’ve
shown over the years. “When you win national championships or you’re in the top-10 for 10 or 15 years in a row that says a lot,” O’Brien said. “They have their marquee tomahawk chop, they’re on television a lot, and I think they’ve marketed well. Once they got to a certain level they were able to maintain it.” O’Brien also went to state the threat possessed by Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel who is a key part of the offense that averages over 300 yards of passing per game. “He’s another dual-threat guy with a big strong arm,” O’Brien said. “He’s a tough guy to get on the ground when he pulls the ball down and takes it. He’s a 230-pound guy, he’s a big strong runner. He’s not afraid to pull it down and run with it, run option with it and run the zone read scheme. He’s very capable to take off and run.” One of O’Brien’s main concerns was the protection of Glennon getting sacked or pressured by the Seminoles defense which is not only ranked No. 1 in the ACC but is also ranked 12th in the country. “You have to be concerned about your quarterback,” O’Brien said. “You don’t want him taking any hits, but sometimes it’s not avoidable. I think he’s shown a lot of toughness and a lot of resilience. These guys can bring a lot of pressure. “They sacked Maryland six times and knocked one of their quarterbacks out of the game, so it’s definitely a concern for us.” Kickoff is set for noon, which was something O’Brien was looking forward to especially in a place like the Doak Campbell Stadium, where nights can get very intimidating. “A lot of places are like that [Doak Campbell Stadium], especially where tailgating is big,” O’Brien said. “I think our crowds are much better at night than they are at 12 noon too, when people get the opportunity to get revved up and ready to go.”

Kern gave up the gamewinning goal, she finished with an ACC-leading 104th save, which also puts her at eighth in State history. The last minute of the game had fans on the edge of their seats. With State in possession of the ball and right at the goal, the Pack had a good opportunity to score. However, time was not on their side. After the team missed a shot, the clock ran out, leaving Duke victorious. Senior forward Tanya Cain said that there wasn’t anything about the season that she would change. “I know that we went out every game and we gave our all and that’s all we can ask for,” Cain said. “I’m pretty sure this is the best we’ve ever finished. It’s the best we’ve done in a really long time, and it’s just good to go out on that note.” Coach Steve Springthorpe was proud of how the season turned out. The team ended the regular season with the best win total that they’ve had since 2002. “I think in the end you always want more,” Springthorpe said. “[We had] 10 wins and a great record, one of the best records we’ve had in many years here. We certainly wish more would have happened for us.” As for the seniors on the squad, Springthorpe got a little more emotional when he spoke about what the girls have done for the team. “I’m proud of what they did for our team this year, and the leadership that they had, those six seniors,” Springthorpe said. “They put a lot of effort into helping build our program over the last couple years, so I’m extremely happy for them. I’m sad that it could be over, but I’m happy for all they’ve

Both are set for a 7 p.m. start time, feature opposing teams with losing records overall and in the ACC. The Pack has been down on their luck with a 3-8 conference record, but defeated Boston College on the road and will look for revenge against a Terrapins squad that beat them handily, 3-0, in College Park.
