Excitement … Anticipation … Disappointment … Hope … Satisfaction … Relief. Those nouns describe the roller coaster of emotions that little kids go through leading up to and through what they call the best day of the year … Christmas. For college football coaches it’s called National Signing Day, which falls tomorrow. It’s a little … [Read more…]
I hope everybody enjoyed the holidays. The holidays are always better for me when the Pack is in a bowl game and a bowl game win is the best so it was happy times in DFCF land. Best wishes to everybody in 2012. Before I move on here are my Belk Bowl thoughts and the … [Read more…]
In case you’ve been hiding under a rock here’s what you’ve missed this week: All I can say is it sure has been nice to have a little spice put back into this rivalry.

I’m very proud of NC State for recognizing and celebrating Military Appreciation Day!! Here’s a video of how that went Saturday: Thanks so much to all our servicemen and women!!

It’s time to start talking games, depth chart, injuries, tailgating menus, and everything else. TOB had his first weekly presser this week to talk Liberty. I won’t bore you by rehashing that so go over to … [Read more…]
The new home unis were unveiled last week and by now I’m sure everybody’s seen them. For all the hype that the Official NC State Football Twitter account tried to build up I was starting to expect gold plated unis. Of course that’s not what we got. The unis are the new Adidas TechFit compression … [Read more…]
If NCAA Football 12 hitting the stores today doesn’t get you excited for the upcoming NC State football season, then this video surely will. One word: badass. It gives me goosebumps every time I watch it. I may not need to post anything else until the season starts.
