NCSU genetics experiment could spell the end for UNC's mascot

Although the face-off is against the Citadel Bulldogs, it is the Heels' archrival, N.C. State, that poses the bigger threat to a tried and blue Carolina tradition. About 60 years ago, Wolfpack livestock scientists engineered a dastardly plot that just might do away with rams like Rameses for good. (Raleigh News & Observer)
