It’s 2011 Homecoming Week, so that means it’s time for a new corny alliterative slogan … Tame the Tigers! If you want more info on the Homecoming Week festivities … click here. Why again did we pick Clemson for our Homecoming game? It’s also the 31st installment of the Textile Bowl (since 1981, 80th overall … [Read more…]
It’s pretty easy to grade a game where the final score was 38-3. Pretty much every aspect of the team was on point. The offense racked up just shy of 400 total yards (even with backups playing the final 10 minutes of the game), converted on all 5 redzone trips (4 TDs), and only had … [Read more…]
The Pack dominated the Demon Deacons to the tune of 38-3 this past Saturday. It was a great day for NC State Senior Day and Homecoming. To celebrate here’s an extra large edition of Pack the Caption (photos by Ethan Hyman/N&O). Let’s get right to it.
I love it when former Pack players in the NFL spend their bye week to come back and root for the Pack. Saturday Jerricho Cotchery was at Carter-Finley and got a huge standing ovation when he was recognized. Jerricho was one of the hardest working and nicest guys we’ve ever had at State. What a … [Read more…]

During Homecoming Week it is always nice to look back in history and see where you’ve come from and the people that have made it all happen. NC State posted a real good story about the history of our football program. A must read for any Wolfpack football fan. Check it out here.
So Homecoming Week is upon us. Fittingly the same week that ESPN debuts their film “Without Bias” the Maryland Terrapins are coming to town. One time at Maryland, me and some buddies had a run-in with some Terp fans over Len Bias. Great story, but I’ll save that one for another day. Vegas has the … [Read more…]
Well if you like offense today was your kind of game. I’m sure NC State basketball legend David Thompson, who was sitting a few rows behind me, liked the offensive display but he wasn’t at all pleased with the outcome of the game. Both defenses were terrible and both offenses made big play after big … [Read more…]
I’m heading down to Tallahassee this weekend. Not really sure if that’s a good or bad thing. I love Doak Campbell Stadium. It’s my second favorite stadium in the ACC, behind Carter-Finley of course, to watch a game. I’ll be going to Lane Stadium for the first time in November so check back then to … [Read more…]
Twelve years ago today was Homecoming night at South Stanly High School. It was my Junior year. I don’t remember anything about the game. I think we won, but that didn’t really matter to me. I was focused on the Homecoming dance after the game and what happened there is something I’ll never forget. I … [Read more…]
