    Might be one of the most anticipated seasons in Wolfpack football history. I have to go back to the season after the Pack finished ranked in the final top ten after beating Notre Dame in the Gator Bowl. That season was more anticipated than this one. Doeren has undoubtedly improved the quality of the roster and likewise improved the quality of the coaching. The development of the players and the improved quality of play prove that. To follow up a successful season with another successful season is the step that needs to be taken now. Success for NC State even within the division automatically means success on a national level because the ACC Atlantic is just that loaded with quality teams. What gives me optimism is that Doeren is achieving well in the areas that Amato suffered -- principally the ability to keep his staff whole. The difference is that the ACC is now a vastly stronger and therefore more competitive football conference than it was back then. Ken

    I think this one was awesome, since we had a 2 star LS (Drew Little) that decommitted from the Pack and committed to the U*NC. Then we go get a 4 star LS in Joe Shimko. Nice trade up. Fedora loses again. I'm wondering if Little knew that Doeren was recruiting Shimko and figured he'd never see the field.

    http://gopack.com/news/2018/6/12/football-doeren-to-speak-at-nff-bill-dooley-pigskin-preview.aspx?path=football The annual Pigskin Preview was today. I will try and find a link to DD's comments when it gets put out. I always look at this event and the annual "Kickoff" of football season. Means we are in July and the start of fall camp is right around the corner.

    This is what it's all about -- academics! In their 15-school conference, the ACC placed 4,650 student-athletes onto the ACC Honor Roll. NC State accounted for 254 of those students. The criteria is to play on a varsity sport program and maintain at least a 3.0 GPA for the academic year. Doing the math, the average per school is 310, so frankly, the Wolfpack at first glance isn't putting up the average number. But, that is misleading. NC State has a total of just 21 varsity sports, while most other conference programs have between 23 to 25. The detail that catches my attention is that swimming accounts for more honor athletes than any other sport, with 49, followed by Rollie Geiger's cross country team with 43. Consider that all four of the men's and women's teams in these two sports finished the season ranked in the national top 20. So, they all reached the pinnacle of collegiate sports!

    Missed your comment when I first read through the posts... We are doing well, and it is going to get more better. This class is going to rival Coach Amato's recruiting prowess. ETA: Since the departure of TOB, I have always thought we should have extended and offer for CTC to be a recruiting coordinator. Amato excels in this area and loves NC State.

    Moreover, rifle is not even featured in the Learfield Directors Cup standings. So, one of our strongest programs doesn't even earn points in that cup's calculations! Ken

    This recruiting class is one of the best NC State has received. ESPN considers Savion Jackson as the third highest rated recruit in Wolfpack history. Bradley Chubb was a perfect example of a player of very good, but not great, rating when recruiting, but through hard work and development, turned himself into an elite player. Jackson is calculating that the development that Chubb enjoyed, might be available for him. We should all very much hope that is the case. Ken

    And to highlight the point that we finished top 15 with 21 varsity programs. There are schools with well over 30 varsity programs, meaning that our margin for error is much smaller with each team. I would also love to see a breakdown on $$$$ spent per team in the top 15. I bet we are getting the most bang for our buck.

    Not so much a need for an extensive narrative. Despite what anyone might think about this year's performance, the raw facts speak very loudly. NC State finished ranked #15 in the Learfield Directors Cup standings. This is the highest finish ever for NC State. http://gopack.com/news/2018/6/27/general-a-year-to-remember.aspx In terms of the revenue sports, all of them earned post-season selection, and that has not happened often for the Wolfpack. Football won its bowl game quite handily, and finished ranked #24 in the final CFP national rankings. Men's basketball was a surprise for the season with a new coach and earned an NCAA selection even if it was an early exit. The women also earned an NCAA selection, and finished ranked #16. Baseball was selected to host a regional. In terms of nationally elite results, both the men's swimming & diving team, plus wrestling, earned final #5 national rankings. Both of these programs are truly nationally premier squads, and their recruiting efforts promise to keep it that way for the foreseeable future. The women's swimming & diving team earned an NCAA selection, and finished the season ranked #18. The women's soccer team, that used to be the conference door mat, rebounded with a strong season, also earning an NCAA selection. That was the surprise of surprises in a positive light. The men also enjoyed a resurgence, earning an NCAA selection and losing to #25 Old Dominion. But, under new men's coach George Keifer, the 2017 campaign certainly reestablished the Wolfpack on the soccer road map. Ultimate validation of this point is that the team finished ranking #23 in the RPI (best ever for the program) and finished ranked #21 in the coaches' poll. Given last year's final season ranking, this is the first time ever that NC State women's soccer finished back-to-back seasons nationally ranked!
