After a no-doubt lovely vacay in Starkville, Mississippi (hey, it very clearly weren't no business trip), it's a close to home field trip. Who doesn't love a tummy full of empty calories?
This game has no betting line, at least that I could find at time of writing. We will all likely have it on in the background, while we do other, hopefully more entertaining stuff.
But a cautionary tale, and a story of how we made the best football coaching hire in modern era - Dick Sheridan. The man who, along with Juco transfer QB Erik Kramer, pulled NC State out of the ash heap in 1986. How/why did he hire him? IIRC, because he beat us with his Furman team. Twice.
Until Sunday night, I hadn't seen that last play of Jacksonville State beating FSU. Good God, that was funny. Remember how they were "back" - just like Texas, right? But shit happens in football. As bad as last weekend was for NC State, we have to wash the stink off and do the best we can with what is in front of us. And the ACC - especially the Atlantic Division (for a change) - is hot garbage.
Dick Sheridan's Pack absolutely curb stomped Son de Clem, but a horrid loss (with Kramer injured) to a 2-7 Wahoowa squad meant finishing a half game behind the Tiggers for the ACC crown. We really only have come close one time, since.
Clemson is a lot better now, and we probably won't beat them this year. Or next. Or the year after that. But shit, can we at least get to 6 ACC wins? That sure would feel nice, like a ginger beer to settle the stomach. Fentiman's is the best one, by the way.
Has anyone here seen/heard about the Palladins on the football pitch? Because I am too lazy to scout the 1-AA level. Outsourcing! It's totes a thing!!
