    Who said I was not ashamed of the performance by the team? But I do understand things happen. It is what is referred to as "quick sand" and it happens. And the coaches I mentioned have all suffered blowout losses in their careers as well. Toughness is also how you respond to a game like this so I am curious how we come out against WF after the bye week. On the offensive line, we are starting one true freshman, sophomore, and rotating 3 freshman and a sophomore. We are going to take our lumps there. Having Witt out really hurts. The defensive line was what was disappointing but we are still playing a lot of youth there as well with 5 sophomore or freshman on the 2 deep.

    I am hearing from some reliable sources around the East Surry football program that Gosnell is planning to de-commit and sign with UNC. There is not an official offer from UNC but they are saying UNC coaches have been talking to him. Stephen has 2 teammates who signed with UNC, Jefferson Boaz a 6-6 QB who will play TE at UNC, and WR Landon Stevens who signed as a preferred walk on. I hope these sources are wrong but it is concerning that Mack Brown already has a top 20 class signed for 2020 in his 1rst year back. It is my understanding that we have already offered Gosnell's younger brother Benji who is a sophomore at East Surry.

    I for one am ok and expected a set back season this year with the QB situation and all the talent we lost last season and I am not holding DD to a different standard. I am ok with losing to a mediocre BC team at their place. What I am not ok with is the complete lack of toughness and effort displayed Saturday. BC has not rushed anywhere close to 400 yards on anyone so far this season and they will not the rest of the season but they did it to us! It is not like when GT rushed for 400-500 yards on us with their veer a few years ago, BC just lined up and pounded it down our throats and we let them. Our coaching staff knew they were going to be one dimensional. And then their so far this season porous defense was able to completely shut down our running game by manhandling our O-line. Yes Bowden, Beamer, and Paterno had down years like most good coaches do but I have never seen any of their teams get physically dominated like we did Saturday and especially by a team with the talent level of BC. I mentioned year 7 because good coaches like the ones you mentioned builds a culture of toughness so games like Saturday do not happen. Yes I would expect us to lose by 40-50 against Alabama and maybe even Clemson because right now they out class us athletically and have a lot more experience but nobody should be able to line up against us with a run only game plan and be able to mash us like BC did. We may be young but we have better talent than that and especially against a team like BC! I can point to at least one or two games every season under DD where lack of toughness cost us. A couple that come to mind was the loss in Greenville to a bad 3 win ECU team during Montgomery's first season where we not only did not display toughness but were clearly out conditioned and the loss at home last season to a Wake team going nowhere. I don't see how anyone who knows football and loves NC State is not completely embarrassed and ashamed of the way we played Saturday. We were not out classed athletically. Yea our QB situation was shaky but Tom Brady could not have been prolific Saturday with the effort our Oline gave. We simply allowed a mediocre team impose their will on us without fighting back. That is just lack of toughness.

    I keep reading this year 7 thing and I dont get it. Why should there not be a step back just because we are in year 7? Over the last few years we have lost a ton to the NFL draft as well as some players not cutting it and no longer being on the team. We are low on Sr's and RS-Sr's because of this. Thus why we are such a young team. Every coach at every program has a year or two where they step back with few exceptions. Bobby Bodwen went 6-5 in year 6 after going 8-3, 11-1, and 10-2 the previous 3 seasons. Frank Beamer 7-5 in year 11 after going 10-2 the previous two years Joe Paterno went 6-5 in 1984 two years after winning the National Championship and then went 5-6 in 1988, again, two years after winning the Natty. And these are HOF coaches. Should we hold DD to a different standard?

    Some guys are what is referred to as a "practice hero." Meaning they look like all Americans during practice but it never translates into a game. That was Matt McKay, IMO. I did have the pleasure of watching a few practices during spring and fall camps. McKay was clearly the best QB and Leary was not in the discussion as the best QB. Yes, Leary has the best arm talent on the team, and that was clear even during the spring and fall camp as he could make throws the other two could not, but he could not read a defense and threw a LOT of INT's during the spring and fall camp. If you had seen how MM performed during fall and spring camp you would understand why the staff was a patient with MM as they were. They were hoping for that light to go off and translate into the game. It never did, obviously. Also, to give Leary credit. The staff was clear with him on why he was not #1 or #2 and instead of pouting he put in the work to get better.

    Up next is the second of what is the toughest three-game stretch of this year's schedule. We travel to Wake Forest. Wake just beat Florida State, and we laid an egg at BC. The one significant development is that freshman Dennis Leary is likely to start the game at quarterback, though that's my guess and not yet officially announced. But, after he sparked the offense for three TD passes, it would be a shock if that's not the case. NC State has a good defense and so it really comes down to whether we can develop an offense that can sustain drives, score points, and keep our defense from wearing out. Ken

    If I wanted to be a fan of a college team that's going to win and probably blow out their opponents every week, I wouldn't have gone to North Carolina State University. Our defensive line had been playing well. Our coaches should have known BC would run the ball all day and no try to rely on a back-up QB to beat us. Anyway, Leary's the best passer we have. I do not know how McKay out shined him in the Spring game and in training camp. Really makes me question the judgement of the coaching staff. Anyway, I still hope we have enough in us to win six games and go to a bowl game.

    There's going to be a temptation to point to the quarterback situation, given Leary ran the team better than anyone else. But, this game was really a clear case of BC's offensive and defensive lines manning up and our lines got manhandled. When you cannot score on eight plays from first and goal inside the five, then that's just a case of your line failing, and when the other team takes that ball and marches down the field and crams 200+ yards down your throat in the second quarter, then that's the other half of getting out manned. One team had men lining up on both sides of the ball. The other team? Not so much! Ken

    This will be a bellwether game because it is BC on the road. BC may not have the record, but they remain a good team and we've historically had difficulty beating them at their place. If the Wolfpack can win this game, then they set themselves up for a nice season. Frankly, despite the oddsmaker book, this was not a game I marked as a win. It is, however, a grand opportunity for a young team to gain confidence and start to believe then can achieve something nice this year. Ken

    Havent heard that. Now Dad Leary may have pissed off DD, but that is not the reason he is not playing. DD and staff will play who they think is the best QB (or player in any position) they fell gives them the best option to win. Yes Leary has the best arm talent of the group. However Leary was the most careless of the 3 QB's with the ball during camp. At one point he was trowing like 3 pics a day against the scout team defense. But he would also make the throw that no other QB on the roster could make. However DD and staff put a premium on taking care of the ball. Hockman pushed MM the most, but MM actually looked like the best QB in fall camp. He was hitting those open receivers and was pushing the ball down field and connecting on those passes. The staff was trying to be patient with MM in the games because the belief was that what they saw in practice would eventually translate into the game. It did not.

    From what I read on BackingThePack, he racked up a bunch of parking tickets, that he did not pay. Got four boots on his car, and then decided to drive out of the Reynolds parking garage, with the boots still on his car, causing a bit of damage to the parking garage. Basically, some immature shit that he needs to be sat down for. He'll be back sooner than later.

    This was among the finest defensive efforts I have seen from an NC State football team ever. Syracuse has a high tempo offense that averaged 85 plays per game. And yet, the Pack's defense limited the Cuse to just 76. https://www.espn.com/college-football/recap?gameId=401112477 Add in eight sacks and it meant all the difference in the game. On offense, we mustered just enough to win. Hockman played well in my view because the passes he completed were mostly well defended and required him to put the ball on the money. The one interception was due to a tipped pass at the line of scrimmage. However, he was also lucky to avoid a pick in our own end zone that would have cost one of our field goals. It is very nice to have a high quality kicking game again, as both our punter and our kicker had excellent games tonight.

    A father overtly interfering like that, yes, that will poison a situation every time. Might be a good time for Leary to decide what he wants his own future to look like. Sometimes, that requires a young man to remind his father who's life it is! Anyway, Hockman did a very good job in this game. And it took a good job to win. Without his arm being a deep threat, I don't think we would have won this game. Syracuse has a really good defense and it showed tonight. Ken

Clemson did this last year, with their veteran QB, before starting Lawrence last year. Leary should've been given a shot after the shit show in WVa

    Coach K may support this California statute, which specifies direct payments to student-athletes for merchandise sales that feature their names, images or likenesses. However, he constantly hedged his support by openly admitting that he "doesn't have all the answers." Frankly, he looked both weak and presumptive in his press conference. A person does not responsibly voice support for something that at the same time he admits he doesn't appreciate the full impact. There is a second reality that bears directly on K in all this. His school enjoys one of the richest endowments in American academia. Most other schools don't have the financial resources to pay players for such sales, and yet also desperately need those merchandise sales to make ends meet. Lost in most all of the media's focus on this story is the cost of a full ride scholarship, which most collegiate athletes play without. Not only do a few football and basketball players never benefit from a full scholarship, nearly all athletes in other sports can only hope to earn a partial scholarship. The cost of an academic degree has exploded over the last three decades, well beyond the annual cost of living, and now the price of that education is so inflated that without students going into tens of thousands of dollars of debt, they cannot earn a degree. Consequently, these athletic scholarships are not trivial compensations, but are instead quite valuable instruments. In my view, all of this reality bears considerably on the idea of paying collegiate athletes. Unlike Coach K, who's supposed to know the issue more than most people, many are willing to make the case right now. And that case is that most athletic departments are barely hanging on. The real ugly truth is that these often lavish college endowments are strictly removed from the reaches of the athletic departments, and frankly most of those vast dollars sit year after year as an idle cash pile, earning interest and dividends. Due to the highly organized effort of seeking donations from rich alumni, many universities have become vast reserves of huge idle cash. Some schools sit on more than a billion US dollars in mostly idle endowments! However, these schools require that the athletic departments self-fund their operations. This has created the booster organizations which provide the lion's share of revenues used to fund athletic scholarships. Any funds used to pay athletes additional monies would not likely come from these huge endowments (for the schools who have them) but instead come from the athletic department budgets, boosted by the various associations of private donors. Contrary to popular opinion, the vast majority of these boosters are not millionaires, but instead middle class people. And for them, this money is a significant donation.

    To tell the truth, Matt, the player whom I think will be the bellwether for how this team performs this season is Braxton Beverly. He showed flashes of brilliance last year, and at times would dominate a game. But, his shot was spectacularly erratic and he was equally capable of virtually disappearing during a game. If he can gain a consistency in his shooting, then he is the difference maker due to his ability to drive and score, or drive and pass. The Pack has significant talent returning this year, including Markell Johnson, CJ Bryce, and Devon Daniels. In terms of big men, the Pack adds two transfers in Pat Andree and Danny Dixon. We also have Manny Bates, who is a 6-11 space eater in the paint. There's plenty to keep the faith about. Ken

It's a home game versus Syracuse, and for NC State, this is one of those games that needs to be won to maintain a pathway to bowl eligibility. Both teams enter the contest with equal 3-2 records and both teams earned their wins over teams that are well below average in the RPI. Game on 10 Oct at 20:00 eastern, again broadcast nationally on ESPN. Go Pack! Ken

    A Challenge, but has been rewarding. We are at the point of our schedule where we are playing teams for a second time. In middle school volleyball you play best out of 3 and you play to 25. We played the best team in the league last week for the second time. The first time we lost in straight sets 25-12 and 25-14. Last week we lost 25-21, 22-25, and 15-12 (3rd set is only to 15). We we went from getting blown off of the court to giving the best team in the league all they could handle. Their coach said I am sure glad we dont play you again this year after the game. We have also picked up a few other victories along the way. I am not normally a morals victory guy, but with this team I am having to be. We are a first year middle school and the teams we play have had established middle school teams for years. So we are playing catch-up. We are setting goals and exceeding them. I am super proud of how they play.

    I'm inclined to agree with you. My only caveat is that we put Hockman in the game after the FSU defense knew we had to play catch up. On the other hand, there is not a great difference in game experience between any of the three. So, it should come down to who gives you the best chance to win the most games. Ken

    I am telling you the future is now! Saw some decent things from Hockman tonight and he is certainly a better option than McKay but he does not have the poise, arm strength, or athletic ability of Leary. I have not been at the practices and I am sure McKay and Hockman know the O better but when you do not have a proven returning starter at QB you got to go with your best talent and have him learn on the fly. Game experience is the best way to learn. Even Mack Brown seems to get that. I feel we wasted 5 games that Leary could have got valuable experience.

    The biggest handicap that Hockman has is that he's a lefty, and the spin and release of the ball is different. If the lefty is your starter and works in the pre-season, then the receivers can get used to it. But, as a sub in the game, it's a real hardship. Leary looks like the future, and our defense is really good. If the offense can get it together, we can win some games this year. Bluntly stated, I think the staff made the worst of three possible choices to start the season at the most critical position on the team, and it has already cost us two games. That's entirely on the coaching staff, and they get paid the big bucks to know first and foremost who their players are and what they are capable of doing on the field. Ken

    Yeah only saw him throw 5 passes but the best 5 passes I saw all night. Leary is clearly our most talented QB. Was at the APP State vs UNC game last week and got a good look at Sam Howell who is a true freshman and I am sure does not know the offense as well as the veteran QBs at UNC but he is very talented and gives them a chance to win and they almost beat #1 Clemson today. I say put the kid in and take our lumps with the inexperience and mistakes he will surely make. Another positive note from a very negative game. Payton Wilson will knock the living snot out of you. We have a young but very physical LB core right now that I feel will be among the Nations best in the next year or so.

    Did not see much of Dennis Leary, but I liked what little I saw. Should have ended up a touchdown, but in keeping with the theme of this game, the receiver coughs it up as he's about to cross the goal line! This will end up being a 31-13 shelling, and the game was very disappointing. FSU did not show they are a great team, and we still got hammered. So, that doesn't say much about us this year either! Bailey Hockman looked better than Matt McKay, and I suspect that perhaps we've been starting the third best of our quarterback options. Experience doesn't count if someone cannot get the job done! If Hockman didn't get beat up to the point of injury, then I expect he will start the next game. If he did, then I suspect Leary will get the ball. I'm sure McKay is a great person, but that's not the measure of the player, and this offense needs a better grade of play than what he has shown.

    Our defense showed up for this game, but our offense was very ineffective, until finally the time of possession imbalance wore our defense down. Right now, the only thing left to do in this game is to try to fix our offense, so that going forward it can actually score touchdowns against ACC opponents. Ken

    This game's first half is missed opportunity after missed opportunity. Really an overall poorly played half by both offenses, though FSU managed to summon enough consistency to score two touchdowns, which the Pack never did match. I don't know how many, if any, reps that Hockman got with the starting offense in preparing for this game, but despite missing on a few throws, his game seems better suited to force a defense to play honest. And I just feel like we have a better chance to win with him starting. Ken

    Well, I guess the coaching staff reached the same conclusion, because Hockman came out on our fourth possession, which starts with excellent field possession due to another excellent defensive stop, combined with a very poor FSU punt. Ken

    I don't need another possession to form a conclusion about Matt McKay. He is not the answer, and I don't think he ever will be. He made zero pass attempts down field on our first two possessions, and it was three and out both times. Then, on the third possession, he made one 15 yard completion on a 50-50 jump ball to Emeka Emezie, who went up and pulled it in. Then, on the next play, McKay throws a rail route five yards out of bounds when our receiver is wide open by three yards. His next pass drops at the feet of the receiver on the screen in the flat, and then the third pass sees McKay once again overthrow his receiver by five yards, and as I feared, the FSU safety was in the vicinity to pick off the pass, but was unable to. It is time to pull McKay and put Bailey Hockman in the game and see what he can do. Ken
