The following entry was originally published on November 30th. I don’t even know what the best format to write this post would be. I’ve heard so many different points and counter points about Coach D, this team and the staff as a whole that I don’t know what to think so I’ll write them all […]
Brandon Mitchell will return for the Wolfpack on Saturday in Tallahassee, as the Pack tries to keep up with the 3rd ranked Florida State Seminoles in Doak S. Campbell Stadium (3:30pm ABC/ESPN2).
Despite being ranked 3rd in both major polls, Florida State debuted at #2 in the first BCS standings of the season.
Mitchell, who began the season as the Pack’s starting QB vs La Tech, went down to injury with a broken foot only 15 plays into the Pack’s opener vs the Bulldogs way back on August 31st. Since that time, he’s spent considerable time looking like this….
It will be nice to see him once again look like this….
Before his early exit that day, his stat line was 3/3 passing for 93 yards (including a 56 yard strike to Rashard Smith), and 5 rushes for 19 yards. Hopefully he can shake off the rust reasonably quickly and add a bit more dimension on the offensive side of things, and maybe even keep the Pack closer than the Vegas boys think.
State is currently a 4+ touchdown dog on Saturday.
Rob Crisp and Daryl Cato-Bishop both continue to be conspicuously absent from the Pack’s depth chart.
It is becoming more and more likely that Crisp, who will miss his 5th consecutive game after suffering a concussion on Sept. 7th vs Richmond, may not see the field again in ’13 and may instead go the medical redshirt route.
Kickoff for the Carolina game next weekend (November 2) will be at 12:30pm. Obviously, that (stupid) time means the game will be televised on the ACC Network.
