REVIEW: My NC State ‘Slobbering Wolf’ New Era hat was delivered!

Published

on

When New Era finally announced that they were coming out with a ‘Slobbering Wolf’ fitted hat, I was excited. Finally, a fitted Wolfpack hat I was excited about.

I’m a hat guy. Partly because I like the shade they produce, and mostly because my hairline ain’t what it used to be. That said, I couldn’t really find a NC State hat I loved.

The best out there, IMO, was the 59Fifty New Era black fitted with the new wolf logo.

This was nice, but when I’m rocking NC State gear, I like to have a red option, and best red option was the ‘block S’ 59Fifty, which is fine, but nothing special.

 

That’s why when the retro ‘Slobbering Wolf’ option hit the shelves, I didn’t waste a second. I scooped it up in my size and waited.

Yesterday, it finally came.

It’s better than expected.

It’s what you’d expect from a modern 59Fifty New Era fitted. A higher crown baseball cap, but not as high and boxy as they were a few years back. But the retro logo is perfect, and they also added the green lining under the brim for another retro touch. Most modern hats have grey under the brim, as opposed to the green which they used years ago.

If you were holding out on ordering one of these, you need to get on it (link to purchase). They are selling out fast. They only have a few left in size 7 and 7 3/8. However, they seem to have a lot left for you out there with the giant domes (size 8). Everything else is sold out.

Will they run another batch of these or was this a one-and-done? Who knows, but for those of you that slept on it, you’d better hope they make a comeback.

A pasta eatin', Wolfpack lovin' loudmouth from Raleigh by way of New Jersey. Jimmy V and Chuck Amato fanboy. All opinions are my own and you're gonna hear'em.

Thanks for the heads up, mine is on the way.
In other news, finally a picture of Mahorcic! We heard he was on campus, but I believe this is his first picture with the team. Still haven’t seen Traore and he’s not listed on the GP roster yet.

The Doak is getting its renovation…and NC State fans aren’t exactly loving it

Published

on

I was just about to write a piece about the Doak renovation going down.

But while I was over on Twitter, I saw a ton of comments on it, all of them NC State fans, and almost all of them critical of the new look.


Look, I don’t know what’s going on here. Maybe it’ll look a lot better once it’s done, or maybe the grass will match up a lot better when it greens up. But right now, it’s a little jarring. Here is how it used to look…

And here is how it’s looking right now…

Again, I’m going to wait until it’s really done before I cast judgement, but I think the official tweet from the school marketing it and drawing attention to it, has people thinking it’s in it’s final form. And maybe it is. But I hope it’s not.

I remember this being shared a while back…

This shows grass in foul territory and dirt in the 1st/3rd baselines. So I’m not sure when this turf thing came along. And while we’re on the subject, aren’t we a turf management school? Shouldn’t we be turning up our noses at artificial turf?

Apparently, this is a thing now, where foul territories are artificial turf and fair territory is grass. Here is Mississippi State’s baseball field doing the same thing.

Can’t say I like it there either, honestly. It just seems like one of those fads. Remember when everyone was going crazy with field/court colors?

Did anyone ever really like those? Do people like them now? Have they ever gotten a recruit to come to the school? Have they ever scared a recruit away?

I don’t know. You tell me. I’ll hold final judgment, but things NC State fans don’t seem like they’re going to follow along.
