"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
State gets stomped
I know it sounds petty, but I was really rooting for NC to break the most points in a half. While I care little for NC, I found some simple joy in having State's name next to that "record". I may have not cared so much in the past, but have really soured on State more in the last few years, mainly due to their increasingly hostile stance against us. Hell, I even cheered for them when Cleaves and company won it a while ago. That time has passed.
