Celebrating 65!

ucfdisneyworld9-9-10

The date was December 29, 2008. The Pack was playing Rutgers in the PapaJohns.com Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama. Why is that game relevant you may be asking? Well that was the last NC State football game that I did not attend in person. Over the past 2,084 days if the Pack has played a football … [Read more…]

Super Bowl XLVIII

Russell Wilson Super Bowl Champ

I’m such a big NC State football fan that it is impossible for me to have a NFL team. I’ve tried numerous times to find “my” NFL team, but have never had anywhere close to the passion for them as I do for the Wolfpack so I finally just gave up. I have always been … [Read more…]

2014 Schedule Released

2014 NC State schedule

The ACC released the 2014 Football Schedule today … a whole month earlier than they released the 2013 schedule. Huge ovation for the ACC! See it below and in the right sidebar. Here are my initial thoughts: Not a great home schedule at all due to 3 shitty non conference opponents. Opening ACC play with … [Read more…]

Doeren’s Staff Complete

Coach Doeren has completed his NC State coaching staff. Four are following him from Northern Illinois, two are coming from Wisconsin (both coached under Doeren at NIU in 2011), one from Pittsburgh, one from UConn, one holdover from TOB’s NC State staff, and the S&C guy from Arkansas. Very impressive hires for OC and DC … [Read more…]

“I’m jacked up about it.”

Coach Doeren was officially introduced as NC State football coach on Sunday. I thought he killed the press conference (watch for yourself above). Doeren seems like a no-nonsense type of guy that’s full of energy and ready to do whatever it takes to win. I love it! It’ll be interesting to see how he assembles … [Read more…]

TOB Fired!!!

tobfired

Happy day for me! The results on the field were mediocre at best as he finished 40-35 overall and 22-26 in the ACC. For all the things I dislike about TOB, I do appreciate the way he handled the UNC rivalry and will always remember the 5 straight wins. Thanks Coach! Having said all that, … [Read more…]

50 Straight

footballseason

Tomorrow’s game against Boston College will be the 50th straight NC State football game that I’ve attended. Home/away, hot/cold, sun/rain, win/loss … I’ve been there rooting on the Pack. The last game I missed was the PapaJohns.com Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama on December 29, 2008. I’m sure there are several people out there with longer … [Read more…]
