OK, I’m not made of stone. Despite my earlier pledge, I can’t help myself – I will be watching today, and the next two weeks. We need a win today against an awful opponent, then two road wins against mediocre foes. Then, NC State will be Atlantic Division champions for the first time in the divisional era, with a shot to redeem themselves against a lackluster Virginia Tech squad for their first ACC title since the disco era.
If that happens, I will forgive Tom O’Brien for his idiotic decision to punt against Clemson, although it remains 110% indefensible. There’s no asterisk in the record books for being extremely lucky to have been bailed out by the Holes and Canes last week. Now, for God’s sake, please go out and take care of business. And let’s hope for no more meaningful late game “strategery” opportunities. Because I have a feeling we will end up with the same result.
Wake is lousy. This game will be a laugher. Watch only to see if there’s evidence of a focused Wolfpack squad, with a better killer instinct.
