    Economics over everything else. This is the marquee matchup for the first week of the ACC Network's football coverage, and as such, it was scheduled for this time. Football is a fall sport. So, your observations carry considerable merit. Ken

    1rst 2 home games against ECU at noon and WCU at noon thirty. Really again?? Very dangerous for the players and miserable if not also dangerous for the fans. Sucks for tailgating as well. I guess nobody cared about the thousand complaints last season. In week 1 we are the only ACC team playing that early. Duke and the Holes play at 3:30 and everyone else plays at night. Early season games in the Southeast should be at night.

    If the QB positions works its way well, then we're really suspect in depth at just one critical position, and that's better than a lot of teams undergoing an expected "rebuilding" season. Nice synapses, Derreck, thanks! Ken

    Just in case you are wondering, football information is very hard to come by. The team and staff is keeping a pretty tight lip on things, as they should. That being said here is what I understand at the moment: Offense: QB Position: Its still remains a 3 man race, but I think McKay and Hockman have separated themselves a bit from Leary. I still think it is McKay's to lose but Hockman is pushing him. Leary has the best overall arm "talent" on the team of any of the QB's, IMO, but is still learning and is young. RB Position: We are DEEP. I know that Person and Knight are the "headliners" but Mimms, Houston, and Phennix have looked really good. WR Position: Emezie, Riley, Thomas, Hines, and Lesane are the top 5 WR's and the 6th spot in the rotation is still up for grabs.

    The USTFCCCA will induct NC State Director of Track and Field and Head Cross Country coach Rollie Geiger into its hall of fame! For years I have been trying to urge NC State to induct Geiger into it's own hall of fame, but for some reason, this has not yet happened. Now, the school has no choice, because if they continue to decline doing this, then they are refusing to place a man who's career has earned him the highest hall of fame honor in his sport from similar recognition at his own school! https://gopack.com/news/2019/8/6/cross-country-rollie-geiger-announced-as-member-of-ustfccca-coaches-hall-of-fame-class-of-2019.aspx Geiger's accomplishments are legendary: 34 ACC Team Championships, 21 individual ACC titles since he became a coach in 1979. That's 34 conference titles in 40 years! Geiger's women's cross country program is simply the most successful in collegiate history, 15 top ten finishes in the NCAA and two national titles in 1979 and 1980, including recruiting the immortal Joan Benoit who led the 1979 team on the field to cap her three year career. In track and field, Geiger's teams earned four NCAA individual national titles. Currently, 246 of Geiger's athletes have earned All-American honors and 712 All-ACC honors. Geiger also coached the US National Team for the 1987 World Cross Country Championships.

    I think practically all of the WTF factor for NC State football was established by TOB. The list of facts laid out are irrefutable and quite clearly point to a coaching staff that excels at inconsistency. Whatever that "it" factor is, the programs that win big, and consistently go to big bowl games, are those that win most every game they are supposed to and play competitively in all the games where they face even or superior talent. The staff just doesn't allow a team to win a big game and then lay an egg the next week. The one time I saw another staff do that was when Phillip Rivers had the ACC title in his grasp and we were beat by Maryland to lose the crown. But, in those years Maryland was a very talented team. My only personal interaction with Tom O'Brien was at the Citrus Bowl during Russell Wilson's final season at NC State, where we beat West Virginia. That interaction surprised me quite a bit, as in a group of fans surrounding his radio venue, he seemed quite nervous to be around people, and ultimately shook my hand in a very weak fish manner. I did not expect that, and it stood in sharp contrast to my numerous interactions with Jim Valvano. For my own money, it comes down to whether someone is comfortable being very successful, and Valvano was, and I don't think O'Brien ever was. That sort of body language can rub off on a team, and there is no doubt that a coach's personality, especially the head coach, carries through to his players and staff. Now, perhaps my experiences and conclusions have little to nothing to do with the facts presented. But, those outcomes took place over a long period of time and were very consistent. Regardless, that time with TOB was the first and still only time I ever got a limp wristed hand shake from a head coach for any collegiate or professional team.

    https://www.backingthepack.com/2019/7/31/20748161/tom-obrien-was-an-enigma Interesting read to kill the summer time blues until football starts... Here are some wacky stats that show just weird all of this was. TOBs winning percentage against ranked FBS teams: 64.3% TOBs winning percentage against unranked FBS teams: 42.6% TOB was 7-2 in home games against Wake Forest, Boston College, and Maryland. He was 1-8 in road games against those teams. TOB had fewer road wins against the ACC Atlantic than he had road wins against UNC, despite having five times as many opportunities.

    Thought this deserved its own thread. Just found out that Elle Sutphin just reclassified to 2020 and signed her LOI to play with the Pack. She joins an already steller class that was ranked #7 nationally by ESPNW prior to here reclassification. Here is the 2020 Class for Wes Moore and staff: Jakia Brown-Turner (No. 16 overall in the class by ESPNW) Jada Boyd (No. 34 Overall)

    Im cautiously optimistic about the outcome this year. That said I think 6 to 7 wins are where well end up. A lot of questions have to be answered at the skill positions and of course QB to have the warm fuzzies beyond that. The good: States 2 Coastal opponents are GT and the Cheats. We get Clemson and Cuse at home and WVU looks to be really bad this year. FSU could still be in the middle of a rebuild and Louisville very well could be a dumpster fire again. Add to that EZU could be our toughest nonconf opponent. Things could pan out well especially if State goes 4-0 in the nonconference because I believe there are 3 automatic wins (GT, ewenc and Louisville), so theres 7 wins right there. The bad: Wake and BC on the road can and has been nightmarish for the guys in red. Im Plus Clemson will beat us badly and FSU is on the road and, despite the results las year, there is talent on that team. ECU will be ripe for revenge after the drubbing they took from State to end last season. Were breaking in a new QB and skill positions plus new coordinators. Lots of variables there that could derail a good season quickly. Im hoping for the good to play out over the bad.

    The coaches are really high on all the talent assembled at LB. Gonna be interesting what State pulls out of the hat on D this year.

    Derreck replied to a thread Defensive Information: in Football
    I think the 4-2-5 was more about lack of LB depth. That has been rectified the last few years. We will see both but with the talent at LB now you will see more 3-3-5. As I understand the 4-2-5 is still the base defense.

    You run the defense best tailored for the talent on the field. When we had a slew of four to five NFL ready DL's it made sense to run a 4-2-5. Now, perhaps, not as much. Ken

    Its looking like we will be more of a 3-3-5 Defense this year mixed in with the 4-2-5 that we have been running. I believe this is the influence of the Gibson hire. Sounds like he and Hux have worked well together thus far. I am cautiously optimistic...

    Rebuilding season for sure in my view. It reminds me, though I hope is not as disappointing, as the years immediately after Phillip Rivers graduated. Regardless, the truth is we are starting over at quarterback. And that remains the most important position on the field. This season all comes down to how well did our backup quarterbacks prepare themselves to take over the team. And the prime component of that is the quality of the coaching. So, we put our faith in the quality of this coaching staff, and sincerely hope they manage this transition a lot better than the previous coaching staff managed their transition! Ken
