This ‘Never Give Up’ NC State montage will have you ready to run through a wall.

Take a minute and watch this video. It chronicles the worst moments in recent NC State history and overlays a track of speeches about never giving up. The video then shows clips through the current run. Haven’t seen a video that really captures the past pain that makes the current Final Four run so sweet for Pack fans…until now.

Shoutout to @brianonorio on Twitter for putting this together.

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.

Suck it up. There may be plenty of time later for crying.

NC State vs. Duke in the Elite Eight was the Most Watched Game of the Men’s NCAA Tournament

Published

on

The 2024 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament has come and gone, but it’s still remarkable to note that the Elite Eight matchup between NC State and Duke was the most watched game of the entire tournament.

Elite 8: Duke/NC State: 15.1 million
Finals: UConn/Purdue: 14.8 million
Final 4: UConn/Alabama: 14.1 million
Final 4: NC State/Purdue: 11.45 million
Elite 8: Purdue/Tennessee: 10.39 million

The game between the two ACC crosstown rivals was the most watched Elite Eight game in the past 5 years. The 15.1 million viewers was more than all but 5 college football games last season.

Sunday’s NC State-Duke NCAA men’s basketball tournament regional final averaged a 6.4 rating and 15.14 million viewers on CBS, marking the most-watched Elite Eight game since Michigan State-Duke in 2019 (16.20M) and the most-watched basketball game of any kind, including the Final Four and NBA Finals, since the 2022 national championship (Kansas-North Carolina: 17.05M)

Since the wave of cancellations and postponements that decimated the industry four years ago, the Wolfpack’s win ranks fifth among basketball games behind the aforementioned 2022 title game, North Carolina-Duke in that year’s Final Four (17.66M), the 2021 national championship (Baylor-Gonzaga: 17.08M) and Gonzaga-UCLA in that year’s Final Four (15.39M).

(The above information was before the Women’s Championship Game between Iowa and South Carolina beat all of those with 18.89 million.)
