Well we’ve reached the end of the regular season and this will be our last bubble/conference update of the year. Doing these weekly updates has skewed my normal outlook on the season. Other than State wins, I found myself pulling for whatever outcome would lead to an interesting conversation. Obviously, I shouldn’t have wasted the […]
Good morning, all. I almost decided to be lazy and not post these this year, but we need to pass the time until Buckets rightly gets honored.
Player of the Year: TJ “Buckets” Warren, NC State
Until the last two weeks, this was an item for lively debate, with logical cases to be made all around.
Thanks to the resurgent Orange (and to Wake for beating Duke earlier in the week), NC State is now poised to earn the ACCT 7 seed with a win today. That would leave us likely playing #10 Miami on Thursday, followed by the aforementioned Orange on Friday. Unfortunately, unless #6 Clemson or #11/14 Wake/BC show […]
In case you missed it this week: Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin — who, himself, is nothing if not pompous — was visibly upset over an out of bounds call the other night, but TV Teddy clearly escalated Cronin’s outrage by lunging into his face. You be the judge. The Cincinnati Enquirer: “I don’t appreciate people getting […]
In this world of constant need for immediate analysis, as well as putting things in historical perspective…immediately (just think about how many talking heads on ESPN or some other network talk about a just completed NFL game for example), there is this rush to declare what just happened to be “the greatest ever.” When I […]
The first 3 weeks of the 2014 baseball season are in the books, and with only a few little surprises here and there (some good, some not so good), it’s pretty much gone as expected as the Pack has won 10 out of its first dozen contests. One of the not so good surprises is […]
Recently the author group here at SFN were having a discussion that veered off into who had the worst sports experience during their time as a student at NC State. Reminded me of the comparing scars scene in Jaws. Several of the SFN brain trust made valid points as to why they had it the […]
It’s good to see NC State Sports Marketing doing something to promote one of their own as they’ve put out the following infographic supporting TJ Warren’s case for POY & All-American. I always felt like we’ve missed some opportunities in the past to push some of our greats to the media/general public. Honestly, I feel […]
Wes Moore’s Wolfpack Women have earned a ‘double-bye’ in this year’s ACC Tournament and will take the floor in Greensboro on Friday at 11am. On a related note, while this article in Sunday’s N&O was designed to highlight a growing trend in hiring men to coach women, it also focuses a lot on Wes and […]
NC State starting left tackle Rob Crisp suffered a concussion in the second game of 2013 and missed the rest of the season. Luckily, the senior was granted a fifth year with the program thanks to a medical redshirt. Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren announced Monday that the 6-7, 300 pound lineman will be back […]
