Butch Davis had this to say today in response to O’Brien’s comments that NC State is the best program in North Carolina.

‘Last Saturday they were the best football team; there’s no question about it,” Davis said. “I think that before you, before anybody can anoint themselves, I would say that there probably needs to be some time invested into the programs, and then we’ll see what happens.”

O’Brien’s squad has beaten UNC, Wake, Duke and ECU this season, leaving little argument from other North Carolina schools.

For some reason, I suspect Appalachian State would want a shot at the Wolfpack.
