Here's another good write up. This game is not getting the buzz in CT it deserves, its been drowned out by the Maryland game.
NC State has a chance to be really good. Glennon is poised to explode. Amerson is unreal and if they get the running game going they could win a lot of games. That Tennessee game is a great friday night matchup week one, with an early Navy/ND start saturday and Michigan/Alabama is a great opener. I was thinking about going to check out BC Miami, but may be too many good ones on TV because going to BC sucks.
An argument can be made that NC State is the best and most important non conference home game in our history.
Outside of Indiana, (which is an unfair comparison) which non conference home game has been better than this NC State game?
I count BC as a conference game even though we were not in the Big East at that time.
Speaking of Indiana
This is a huge game seeing they defeated the preseason number one pick Louisville to win the big east. This win will get us noticed!!
Perfect case is they beat TN and have a let down.
Agree. NCSU is huge. Good team, major conference, home game. Time to stop talking about BE being better than ACC. UConn needs to beat Pack & Maryland. Make a statement.
Perfect case is them beating Tennessee and then UConn curb-stomps them. Forget the "let down" part...
A curb stomping becomes more possible if they let down. Just playing the percentages.
No, you're not playing the percentages. You said "perfect case," unless you believe that a perfect case has a higher percentage chance to happen than not. I'm talking perfect case...
Any time someone posts a Caulley highlight, it's an automatic "like" from me. Well done...
UNC would be my top pick. Other quality NC home games were UVA, Wake, Navy, Baylor, ISU. Technically GT too although that was at Memorial Stadium. I would say that UNC and NC St would be neck-and-neck for top game.
Well I wasn't thinking about the outcome of the UConn game just what happened before. Sure NCSU beating UT 42-3 and then UConn winning 63-0 is perfect.
I was only talking about beforehand, if State beats the Vols on a neutral field but with TN selling many more tickets to this point, in theory NCSU might be pretty good and therefore more difficult to beat.
NC State has a very large D-line - 1's and 2's. The offensive line needs to gel early.
