It Ain’t A Train Yet, But The Engine Looks Good…Combo Game Blog. Seriously, Who Uses That Nomer?

See that cowcatcher, there? It kinda’ reminds me of State’s front 7 v. FSU, last Saturday. Which, btw, didn’t get its full, head-cocked, attention. ( It should have.)

Anyway, I saw that the Syracuse DL has 27 tackles for loss through 4. That prompted a time wasting search of film to discover, that they treated LSU, pretty much, like they treated Central Michigan. Two weeks straight is an indicator in my book.

Both offenses could, however, have a field day by getting the ball out early.
That’s 2 Os sharing the same basic modus operandi.

I’d say that ‘Cuse is gonna give the Pack fits, but two straight Orange games, on the road won’t let me go too far with it.

Enjoy the game. It should be a decent one.

    Cowdog: I tend to agree that it will be an entertaining game. Syracuse throws it around, plays at high tempo and gets the ball out quickly. That will stress our defense.

    I tend to think this one comes down to whether one team can generate a run game, and whether one team spots points in Special Teams.

    I think if we can take care of the ball again, we won’t have to sweat this one out to the end, otherwise, we’ll have to make them trade a few TDs for FGs. I’m calling a 31-26 final.

    Btw, from a Syracuse article on the game.

    Carter-Finley Stadium is a tough place to play
    Carter-Finley Stadium is not quite Death Valley in terms of enormity, but N.C. State has a good team, and its fans will pack that place, even for a 12:20 p.m. kick.
    It won’t be as rowdy as, say, the following week’s 8 p.m. kick against Louisville, but the re-entry policy in which fans can leave at halftime to quickly reapply the liquor and beer and return for the second half ensures both the team and fans can make the necessary halftime adjustments depending how the opening 30 minutes go.

    Tomorrow we feast on Oranges!!!!! I don’t know which is a lamer mascot. A pine tree or an orange. However, I think a huge pine tree falling down towards you would be scary as h*ll.

    I’m calling a 31-26 final.

    Funny. Earlier this week I was thinking 31-27 for the final score.

    I’ve got it at 31-28 for the Pack. Looks like we’re converging. Hopefully it’s great minds and not fools……..

    I’ll get it started…good for scoring points on the opening drive. Don’t like throwing that far short of the sticks. Good FG. Then great pick. Then great INT save by wideout in poor throw by Finley. There. Caught up. State up 3-0 with 6 min left in first.

    Looks like Finley might throw a pick today. Not on target early.

    I don’t know what is wrong with me, sometimes I would rather watch the Cheats lose than the Pack win.

    I thought that last FG attempt after the timeouts by Syracuse would have been an excellent time to run a trick play and go for a TD. Syracuse had just watched us line up and attempt the kick multiple times and might have been asleep on a possible trick play there. And, as it turns out, we would not have lost any points if it was unsuccessful…

    Just when ya think ya got a kicker…geez.

    Long way to go, but Pack is playing very efficient football.

    Agreed, CD. They look good other than the kicking game and a few lapses in the secondary.

    Gotta stop letting the team go out to the parking lot at halftime, takes a whole quarter to get back on track.
