Ball bells go off

March 25, 2009 

I read with interest the March 22 "Bell tower may finally sing with its true voice." Growing up in Raleigh I often wondered why the N.C. State University tower never chimed like those in other cities. Thanks to The N&O and Matthew Robbins, we now know why. If students would appeal to the Wolfpack Club and let it know that the school's tower being unfinished could quite possibly be a jinx on State's notorious lackluster football and basketball programs, my hunch is that the Wolfpack Club would make sure the tower is made whole in short order.
