Bill Raftery

Here's a healthy collection of Bill Raftery Nonsense (B.R.N.) from the three final four games:

"Let the traffic subside and drill it!"
"Let him take the collection on Sunday, reward that parish!"
"He'll put his arms around a city"
"Quick hitters"
"Quick slip"
"Nice little lock low"
"Knows how to curl with that derriere!"
"You've got to hug the screener"
"Carte blanche on the dribble drive"
"Frank rearranging the adam's apple"
"Pocket pass"
"Forcing Kentucky to make basketball plays"
"When he's in there, they use rubs"
"Dribble drive"
"You just welcome newcomers"
"Flex run"
"He knows how to put you in a suitcase"
"You don't need a dietician, just give him a taste. A morsel!"

The N.C. State softball team defeated Georgia Tech 10-0 Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, but that wasn't the main story. A fan sitting front row next to the Wolfpack dugout? He was the star of the show.

He had nicknames and phrases for many of the N.C. State players. Here's the full list:

Alyssa Compton - "A-C", "We believe A-C!", "Pretty work, A-C!"
Molly Hutchison - "Wood", "Molls"
Tyler Ross - "T-Ross", "Good talkin' T-Ross!", "Be the boss, T-Ross!"
Maggie Hawkins - "Mags", "Hawk", "That's the Hawk!", "Be a hawk!"
Emily Weiman - "Em", "Eat 'em up, Em!"
Renada Davis (jersey #25) - "Ray", "Ray-Ray", "Nada", "2-5 you a playa!"
Hannah Yeager - "Yoggs", "Yeager bombs"
Macauley Prickett - "Mac", "Smack"
Morgan Medford - "Smash"

Shouts to no one in particular

"Be a beast!"
"Keep faith!"
