The ACC released the 2010 NC State football schedule today. Looks like a pretty tough “road” for the Wolfpack, literally. A whopping six road games this year is the most since the 2002 season and that year we had a 13 game schedule. That’s not really a great thing since we have a 4-10 record on the road during the TOB era.
So that leaves us with only six home games and of the six home games two of them are on Thursday nights. While there’s no doubt the exposure from a nationally televised game on ESPN is always great exposure for the program, call me old school, I just love playing on Saturdays when college football games are meant to be played. Plus we do have a 0-3 record on Thursday nights during the TOB era and I have to take two days vacation at work because my boss man would never ever believe me if I were to call in “sick.”
I could go into more detail and analyze the makeup of the schedule, but that’s an absolute waste of time. What it all comes down to is the team strapping on their helmets and playing some damn football. So here’s the schedule. Contact your travel agent now and make your plans to join me on the road.
