Rundown of This Week’s Points

2/6 – NC State, 1 Point – Random Bonus Point, Found us this week’s Hype Forecast of The Week, as seen in our Weekly Siren Test

2/7 – NC State, 3 Points – Weekly Instagram Challenge, also as seen in our Weekly Siren Test

2/9 – NC State, 1 Point – Random Bonus Point, Gave AtmoLife this bitchin’ weather balloon shoutout!

Before you get on my case for caving into NC State’s pandering, we only award bonus points for high quality pandering like this. There’s been plenty more crappy pandering from NC State that went unrewarded, but shooters shoot, and that’s why they’re currently winning by a large margin. I’ve seen quite a few of y’all pander on your school’s behalf, but nobody panders like the Wolfpack. And it’s not just their pandering that’s jolted them. NC State had a clean sweep this week by winning both our Instagram challenge and hype forecast scavenger hunt. NC State is thirsty for the inaugural AtmoCup trophy, and for that, we award them 3st place.


So get on their level if you wanna see your school shoot up in the standings. And don’t try the weather balloon thing. I’m not gonna reward points for you doing something another school thought of first. I’d suggest looking into these methods below…
