Luckyland Casino asking people what's the weirdest place you've gotten lucky? Lucky? In line at the deli, I guess?

Haha, in my dentist's office. More than once, actually. Do I have to say?

Let's get it started. Of the five things I have here as we get things started here on the Adam Gold Show, Paul Ihann are in for Adam today. Adam's back tomorrow if you don't like what you hear today.

But I hope you like what you hear today because you don't really have much of a choice. We will not be stuck in neutral. We are gonna go hard today. Yeah, we are. Gonna go hard today.

Make this a good Monday. We will do UNC-Duke here in a hot second, but I want to say that North Carolina State State had the best weekend ever as the antithesis of the Carolina Panthers State had the best weekend ever. Starting with State men's basketball getting a win on Friday, which it was Abilene Christian and it was a 20 point win at home of which I believe maybe three or four thousand people actually witnessed it. But also on Friday, Kaitlyn Toohey, the all-star runner at State, women's cross country superstar stud athlete gets to run it back in cross country. What do I mean by run it back?

Pun well intended. She won the Southeast Regional. The Southeast Regional tournament finished first, won the conference championship first. She gets to, she is the defending national champion in cross country. This is an individual sport of which also a runner from Duke also qualified for the Nationals. She gets to actually defend her title in cross country.

One of the most individual sports in the history of individual sports. This was her Friday. So if they're going to put up statues of people at State, she probably needs to get one too. Yes, let's do it. Just saying, just saying. Saturday, a football win, 26 to 6 over Wake and the most rock fighty throat, rock fighty games of rock fightiness. Exactly. And they don't have a good winning record in Winston. They do not. The Bugaboo got pushed off the cliff.

Yes, it did. To forget what happened. But State, which all of a sudden became a running team once again with Brendan Armstrong at the helm. Brendan did all the things right in which they controlled the ball for more than 40 minutes in that football game. Now, 26 to 6. Great news for State. They get a win there. Sunday at Reynolds. Women's basketball team on national television in front of the, one of the rowdiest college basketball crowds in recent memory, takes care of number two UConn in which there is celebration all over the place. Sonaya Rivers goes for 33 points.

She called it as her coming out game. The transfer from South Carolina was so much faster than anything UConn could put on the court that UConn is going to have to figure out exactly what to do against the state team if they happen to hook up again. So for State, probably the best weekend you could imagine sports wise with so many sporty things.

So many sporty things. All right, UNC and Duke in the bell ringer field storming game of field storming games. Drake May left with way too much time at the end of the clock. That wasn't Duke's fault, by the way. They converted on a fourth down.

I mean, that was a fourth down touchdown with under a minute to go. Drake, though, knowing that all he has to do is get into field goal range, takes the heels down. They get a great defensive stop in the overtime.

Get they get they get the points that they need. Put Duke on their heels. Duke just out of gas at that point. Just completely out of gas at the end of that game. We get a nice field storming, a good feel good from Carolina fans, and Mack Brown is ecstatic.

What a game. It was fun to coach. It was fun to watch both teams compete. I'm proud for Mike.

He's done such a great job coaching there. He pulled everything he could pull, the onside kick. He faked a punt. They hung in there. They did the things they needed to do to hang in there. We had chances to extend our lead during the game.

Just didn't do it. We did a good job for red and blue times. Just really, really proud that these guys didn't get their head down and hung in there and found a way to win a ball. Because that was it was very difficult game to stay positive, but keep your good body language and do the things you need to do to come out of the top and so proud of them. I think when they're 41 seconds left, we got the ball back and two time outs. And I really thought we thought we'd have a chance to score a touchdown. But really coming over now, he stepped up and twice late in the ballgame had a pressure kick that kept us alive and gave us a chance to win. And I thought Drake may do some things tonight that are just unbelievable.

I mean, he may play, play, play, including the two point play that normal people just don't make. So I think he has to be the best quarterback in the country. Just amazing to me that he's doing what he's doing. So proud to sit here with him. He's proud of the guys.

This will be one that we'll remember for the rest of their lives and senior night. Clearly, Mac Brown at the local hibachi or you can hear the spatulas, right? I'm like, did they catch him in the shower at the end of the game? Hey, coach, we need you to come out and talk.

I'm bathing. Well, tell them to come in here. We had a good game. Yeah, we gotta have something. Yeah, it was called at Drake May 342 yards, Tess Walker, 162 yards receiving. So the beneficiary of Drake's efficiency and execution and Mac was very appreciative and very complimentary of Drake's ability to convert and be consistent and come up in the clutch again and again and again and again. Hats off to Duke's offense.

I'm like between the Jordans, the more and the waters. They gave them a fight like offensive output. 47 45 against Chapel Hill is if they could dome Keenan. Yes. Full arena football.

Oh, yeah, absolutely. Based on how cold it was. I do not blame anybody for storming the field after that one. You just got to get the blood flowing. We've been sitting here since eight o'clock and they're still scoring game. They're still scoring touchdown.

When are we going to stop 47 45 that final again? Fantastic ball game all around. Hats off to hats off to the heels for making that one for for creating an atmosphere that allowed and coming up clutch for May. Hats off to Duke for showing up and putting up a fight.

And, you know, I get 47 45. That's not a defensive battle by any means, but somebody had to make some stops in the last stop had to come for the heels and they did it in in the second overtime in that one. So well done for them. Here's the bad news for for UNC and again bad news for Panthers fans.

Is it already the draft write-ups for Drake mayor starting and how he as opposed to Caleb Williams is a lot more clutch. Judy was boring. Hello, then Judy discovered

It's my little escape now. Judy's the life of the party. Oh, baby. Mama's bringing home the bacon.

Even Drake admits that, you know, Tez Walker allows him to throw deep balls like and but the good news is that Walker catches all of them exactly.

So it looks good all around. So it's there's still hope right? I mean at eight and two, he'll still have some hope to do some special things. They can still we don't win out with 10. They got a couple of tough ones coming up for sure. But all is right so far and they get to ring the victory bell and that's where it is. All right, ECU gets win number two. I don't know if this says a lot about the Pirates at this point. 22 to 7 was their final ever referee use.

We're getting you recapped over the weekend here. But the good news is this morning that the kicker for the Pirates, Andrew Conrad was named special teams player of the week in the AAC. I don't know what this says about him as a kicker. Probably good things because he converted on five. The problem is that the Pirates are leaning on him so much that he had to make five outside of 40 yards or longer. Wow, which is an NCAA record. He's only the third kicker in history to convert five field goals of attempts of 40 yards or longer.

Wow. He's making up for the ones that he's missed in the past, I guess so the the offense stalls apparently at about the 25. Yeah, we're done. It's like there's like this invisible wall, you know, it's like lasers in those Mr.

Beast videos where you can't get past the lasers and then all right, Andrew, we need you to come out and kick up 43 44 yard or whatnot. Well, at least he got some recognition for it. And that's positive news is ECU gets some feel good, right? It's been it.

It's been a long year for the Pirates. There's no doubt about it. There's I Drive in to the Raleigh headquarters here the Adam Gold show in from about 15 miles out. And I always seem to follow this one person who may or may not live in my neighborhood, but or maybe we just leave the house at roughly the same time that has an ECU license plate on it. Oh, yeah, it's in like this really small lettering. It's like it's a van. It's not the vanity plate. It's like that.

It's the fray, right? I support you. I just don't want you to really see it.

It's the frame but there's no sticker in the window. There's no alumni. There's no like NIL kind of collective kind of thing going on, but it's right there. And today I kind of wanted to wave and honk kind of go. I feel you and you should be proud of what happened over the weekend. Just be good with you and Mike Houston. Just live in this moment, right? Just enjoy it.

I'm like just enjoy it because you know, it's been it's been a rough year. So good news for Andrew Conrad. Good news for ECU.

Well done for them. All right, we're going to go right back around to Wake Forest. Wake Forest struggling mightily again 26 to 6 in the most rock fight of rock fights. In Greensboro and Winston-Salem to where Wake is dead last in the ACC.

Four and six can still become bowl eligible, but how I compare to that game. So I went on a trip over the weekend went up to Boston visited some friends had a good time. It was just a day trip flew up.

Did you park the car? It's funny. The longest line at Logan Airport is at the Dunkin. So that's not even a it's like, you know, what it is. It's so cliche.

Yeah, it's there. It's part of the gig, right? It's part of the gig. I hate doing that because I don't like stereotyping, but it is there's a Bruins bar when you fly in. Oh, there's a Bruins bar and then right around the corner from the Bruins bar at the end of the concourse. Before you cross over in terminal a everyone's seen it as a donkeys. So I went on the longest Dunkin run of Dunkin Run.

Let's just put it that way. So I'm coming back and you know, all the TVs in the airport are all kind of locked in on different channels and whatnot. And there's all the major all the bars have ESPN and ABC and all the major networks the shown all the big games.

But when you get into like where the flights are gate a whatever the one that I was sitting. I happen to have NC State and wake on. Oh, look at that where I got to catch. Unfortunately, roughly a third of that game on the airport TV. As I was playing to watch it.

I had my iPad with me. I could watch it there, but I was like, okay. Well, I'm sitting here watching it. There's a gate where we're all sitting at and they're going to Indianapolis or wherever it was.

And as soon as they did the call everybody stands up and goes over to the gate. Like they were not interested in this football game at all now at all. So I'm sitting there by myself watching literally the paint dry. Like I compared the end of this game to watching paint dry and I'm not even talking about the good paint. But this is the primer paint that if you've ever lived in an apartment, this is the paint that you put on the walls because you kind of nicked it up a little bit and you're hoping you can get some of your deposit back.

Exactly. It's not even like the sheen paint or the stuff you can watch. This is the paint that you buy so you can do a little bit of touch-ups and pray that you get your $300 deposit.

And it's extra smelly so you might get like a paint high from it. That was the kind of paint drying that was watching Wake Forest play football. It just wasn't interesting.

It was incredibly one dimensional. There is a play that is happening in Wake Forest that I've seen come put in play over and over and over again. And I know it's a recent trend because we're all living in the glow of Sam Hart. But we all knew that Sam Hartman was leaving and there's this blue-collar mentality, right? We're going to raise our own. This is we're going to we're going to develop guys. It's going to be these three-star four-star guys. They're going to do great things. They're going to do great things and in a lot of cases it does work. But Nebraska has been trying to raise its profile between three and four-star guys for the last decade.

It hasn't worked. I lived through it at Oregon back in the 90s and aughts. UNLV did it recently until Barry Odom took over this past year. Now they're like Mountain West contenders. They lived through a couple of bad coaches and a bad a couple of bad buys. Let's put it that way. A couple of bad buys. They're finally getting around to it.

The transfer portal for as much as traditionalists hate it and NIL as much as people dislike NIL. It is part of the new way of doing things. And the only irreplaceable person that you can do that with and get out of this kind of steady paint drying watching football is by go getting the guys that you need to replace. The quarterback the skill positions that one amazing edge rusher that just needs more time. Now granted you can find diamonds in the rough and whatnot. But by the fact that everybody at this one gate that was watching this football game said, yeah, I've pretty much had enough of this done except for me. It was like watching paint drying and it was just so sad.

Yeah, you just hope more for this. So if we're going to watch paint dry at least let it be the good paint. Not that scratchy paint that literally comes in a in a natural just kind of like in a standard build.

I don't want to upgrade just give me the stuff that I know when I put the magic eraser to it. It's going to scrape off to the drywall. Yes, let's not have that paint.

Yeah, or the one with the stubborn top that takes 20 minutes just to take off. Yeah, let's spring for the good stuff. Yeah.

All right. Finally some in-house issues with the Carolina Panthers. Diana Rossini of the athletic reporting that while there may not be buyers remorse for the Carolina Panthers. There might be buyers remorse for the Carolina Panthers all across the franchise. What I mean by that is Frank Wright and the superstar staff that didn't quite become superstar staff.

And if we ever learn lessons from history, which we should we should really learn lessons. Herm Edwards tried to do this at Arizona State University where he surrounded himself with former college coaches former NFL kind of head people to help him out. That turned into a qualified disaster at Arizona State College and pros are completely different completely different totally get that. But when you look at what has happened in Carolina with the front office with what is happening on the field, the personnel decisions that were made in giving money to Miles Sanders in not trading Brian Burns away at his highest value in.

Things just go over and over and over again to where is this the right crew to develop the quarterback that they wanted Rice. Young is not a bust. Okay, he's not a bust anybody that calls him a bust the fans cannot turn on him right now.

You can't do it. You don't use him as a scapegoat. He's that is not his fault. This is an overall play for this entire franchise. And the weird bit about it is is that it has come to like this quick turning on young and I'm not saying it's not Young's fault to young has to overcome some things to as a rookie. You can overstate some things you can make simpler decisions as a quarterback, but overall what is going on is this jumbled mess that is happening in Charlotte that has to be fixed. And let's be fair. It's not going to get fixed in time for the Dallas game on Sunday. Absolutely not.

It's not in Dallas. Just Judy was boring. Hello, then Judy discovered Chumba It's my little Escape now Judy's the life of the party. Oh, baby mama's bringing home the bacon.

No purchase necessary for you were prohibited by law 18 plus terms and conditions apply. See website for details trounce the New York Giants with with again. These are professional football players.

Okay. This is the highest level you're going to get the Giants. They've thrown in the towel. They are they're trying to get below the Cardinals and below the Bears at this point.

Yes. It's not like they're not playing with hearts. There's some heart there, but still you lose by four scores you you don't question it, but you're kind of like I see where this is going.

Yeah, we're just not going to hurt ourselves. Right and and you see it as a Panthers fan and to be honest with you Victoria. I think others can feel the way that you feel. Oh, you have to be incredibly frustrated at what you see on the field. Well, and I was just talking to my dad yesterday about this and it's just this vicious cycle as a Panther fan where you feel like you're screaming at the TV saying hey, you should be going left instead of right or choosing a instead of B. But then somehow this staff just doesn't do it and it just blows my mind that people are getting paid to make these bad decisions.

I just don't understand. Diane ever seen the athletic says there's a lot of lockstep that's happening. Like they know that Bryce is there's a belief that Bryce is still the guy. I think the fan base wants to go. Yeah, I want to invest in your Jersey, but show me something. Right like the preseason people who bought the Jersey Bryce Young fans like, yep, this is it. We made a splash now.

It's like, okay. Can we sell a few more to those who are holding on to the I don't know. What Jake the loan Jersey or me? Carrie Collins like Derek Anderson, right who I grew up like 60 miles from yeah, you know offensive success, you know starts at the top and is it the right top? Or does the top just need to be reshuffle a little bit because Shane Steichen at Indian in Indianapolis who's doing it with them in shoe, and they're five and five and I'm not saying that was a sexy win yesterday against New England. Yeah, it was a dub.

It was a dub take it either way. And that's what I think Panthers fans want to like just kind of wrap themselves in a big Snuggie. Yeah, I go.

Yes. This is well the feel and the reason it's like extra cold even with the temperature getting colder is we have nothing to look forward to because next year we don't have any draft picks the teams that stink are getting better and we're getting worse. So it's messing with us too. And like you referenced earlier me personally, I will stick to this.

I will stay on this Hill. I always have they should not have gotten a quarterback this last draft because I wanted Drake May I wanted Drake May. There's just something different about a home grown player. Look at Julius peppers. He they give you a little extra umph when they really care about their team.

Look at Joe burrow. He really wanted to play for the Bengals like that just adds an extra element and they might play for less so you can have more money to spend on other players to surround them with disagree with you on. Maybe they'll play for less but I do get the vibe though. And even may said it himself after the Carolina win over Duke Carolina kid growing up going to games at Keenan.

Now, you know people cheering for him thousands cheering for him. There is that that good vibe that healthy that healthy that atmosphere that can be built around that. We will see where the Panthers can go again. This was supposed to be a Monday of Zen for Panthers fans and instead they get blown up by Kyler Murray's return in Arizona. And so they have to lose again over another weekend and they see what could have been or what might have been with players that are no longer with the team.

Yeah, so there's where we're at. And then of course CJ Stroud wins, you know, in the last few minutes of that game is being talked about as an MVP candidate, which I'm not quite buying in on yet. But if you did pull CJ Stroud off of the Houston Texans, I'm not really sure where the Texans would be right now. Davis Mills is a serviceable quarterback, but the NFL is littered with serviceable quarterbacks not special ones. And right now CJ Stroud if by all accounts is turning into one of those special kind of quarterbacks and I don't think people in Houston right now are hesitating to buy his. Oh, not at all. Not at all. Nope.

You know, they and they had JJ Watt to buy jerseys. Yeah, they've been looking for new new blood. They are at the Stroud station. That is for sure with lucky land slots.
