10 Reasons Why Carolina Is Actually Football Heaven

Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina. The football world isn’t quite ready for the mayhem that NC is going to bring to the table. Just make sure your stomach is prepared with a Carolina-themed game day snack from Pillsbury.

1. It’s common knowledge that everything is better in the South.

2. It’s been five years since Carolina hosted a playoff game, so these cats are hungry.

3. The fans are amazing. Walking into the stadium is like getting a little bit of Southern hospitality… 73,000 times.

4. They get pretty hyped, too. NC is home to the first Krispy Kreme Doughnuts store, so there’s no shortage of sugar rush in that stadium.

5. It’s no surprise that they’ve won nine of their last ten home games. They’re superhuman when they play in North Carolina.

6. If you can’t make it to the game, don’t worry. North Carolina is the top producer of furniture, so there’s always a comfy place to chill and watch the game.

7. There’s no shortage of North Carolina-themed battle cries. There are over 100 songs written about the state.

8. The NC state motto is “Esse quam videri,” which means “North Carolina is pretty dang good at football, so watch out bro.”

9. Don’t get it twisted, though; these guys are cultured. NC is home to the first state-owned museum in the country.

10. Besides all that, the odds of Carolina winning it all are 10:1. That’s roughly the same odds as you getting the flu this winter.

Plan your playoff party with a Carolina-inspired snack.

Since North Carolina is known for its supreme barbecuing, make sure to fire up a few of these Easy BBQ Chicken Crescents to give your stomach a home-field advantage.
