Mic’d Up is Back

I love the mic’d up features from practice. Who doesn’t, right? It’s like our own mini version of HBO’s Hard Knocks. Speaking of that, I’m uber jealous of Notre Dame’s new deal with Showtime. Anyway, we saw a few of the mic’d up videos last year and thankfully they’re back this year. The first two … [Read more…]

You Don’t Know Jack

If you haven’t seen the You Don’t Know Jack videos by Jr. CB Jack Tocho then you are really missing out. Styled somewhat after famous NC State alum Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns series, they are a refreshingly different behind-the-scenes look at the NC State Football program. If the whole football thing doesn’t work out … [Read more…]

NC State Wallpapers

The Pack Football Twitter account tweeted out the picture above this week and urged Wolfpack Nation to show their support by making it the lock screen on their smartphone. If nothing else, you should download it and use it for a week or two, because that’s all it would take to get the schedule ingrained in … [Read more…]

Wolfpack Legends

Great new addition to the Murphy Center team room. A nod to our history and a little motivation to our current team to strive to get their own picture up there. Retired Numbers RB Dick Christy (#40) QB Roman Gabriel (#18) DL Dennis Byrd (#77) OG Bill Yoest (#63) RB Ted Brown (#23) OL Jim … [Read more…]

Close-King Indoor Practice Facility

The Close-King Indoor Practice Facility is now open for business. This will be a great addition for our football program. It is a beautiful looking facility and it came at a reasonable $14 million price tag. A very well spent $14 million if you ask me. Our guys will be able to work out now … [Read more…]

Dancing Coach Doeren

I love the postgame locker room celebration videos. We expect our teams to act business-like during games, but when they take care of business and get a win they should be able to let it all out and celebrate. It’s refreshing to see how this staff understands that simple concept. I absolutely love the Rudyard … [Read more…]

Banner Year for NC State Athletics

The 2014-2015 academic year was one of the best ever for NC State Athletics, reflected in the 27th place finish in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup rankings, our highest ranking ever. Way to go student athletes! You’re getting it done in the classroom, in the community, and now on the field of play. A lot of credit … [Read more…]

“Hands in the dirt school”

Check out the new addition to the Murphy Center below. Gotta love that! Coach Doeren gets this school and this fan base. He isn’t an alum and he’s not from around here, but he fits in perfectly. Hope we can keep him for a long time.


Coach Doeren and Company take this recruiting stuff seriously, a nice change of pace from the previous staff. Coming off a 3-8 record in 2013, I thought the recruiting scene would be very tough on them. They took that challenge head on and made a huge splash, especially in-state, and pulled in a very impressive … [Read more…]
