Stung by the red paint that was thrown on the Old Well on the UNC campus at Chapel Hill, some motivated, if perhaps misdirected, young Tar Heels took a measure of revenge on the NCSU campus in Raleigh.

It's called the ''Free Expression Tunnel'' at N.C. State, and some Heels used it to freely express their pleasure over the Tar Heels' 84-70 victory Wednesday night over the Pack.

The 150-foot underground tunnel on campus was painted Carolina blue hours after the UNCs' victory at the RBC Center. The final score was highlighted in black paint while the Carolina logo and UNC's Old Well were painted in white.

The ''expressions'' included: ''Rednecks!'' and ''Go Blue!'' and ''Roy doesn't need a red suit.''
NCSU students quickly added their own ''expressions,'' such as: ''Look, mommy, we beat an unranked team, let's drive 30 miles to rub it in because we have no class.'' (You gotta admit, that's a good one.)

Another read: ''I knew there was a reason I hated Karolina.'' (Just kidding about the "K.")

Moral of the story: All’s as it should be in late February on Tobacco Road.
