If you have an Instagram and you follow any friends who like Barstool Sports, then I’m sure you’ve seen a segment from ‘The Minute Man.’ The guy has made a living giving people the news with an unapologetic delivery, pointing out hypocrisies and ridiculousness over the past couple of years.

Like him or not, this is overwhelmingly the tone coming from college baseball fans and independent media all over the country and for NC State’s long-term brand perception, this doesn’t hurt.
One of the all-time greatest underdog schools from the 80s gets a booster shot (pun intended) of support from underdog lovers across the nation.
