    Judging from the cover of The Wolfpack, State had the beef, Finley can throw it and the runners and receivers are no cream puffs. What am I missing?

    Also, the kicking game has to be better!

    I bet even Greywolf would line up to kick him in the nuts for that ludicrous prediction.

    We’ll “kick” something this season….
    exactly what remains to be seen…

    I bet even Greywolf would line up to kick him in the nuts for that ludicrous prediction.

    Greywolf doesn’t see it as a prediction, but simply a statement of belief that the Wolfpack, could possibly make it to the CFP. Cole Cubelic of the SEC media made one early season prediction that the Pack will be in the playoffs. Cubelic admits that prediction was more to stimulate preseason conversation than a serious prediction. Even that is a little more bold than I am willing to be.

    Considering the failure to win any significant games and the losing conference record, you have to wonder what these outsiders are seeing that’s influencing these seemingly ludicrous statements and so-called asinine predictions.

    I guess I had better post something that gives non-believers something to rail about.

    The players believe! The coaches believe. Many fans believe. You all know what Mr. DOG says about believing.

    Our D-line is as good as it needs to be.
    Our starting LBs are 4-year starters and this year are backed up adequately.
    One starting CB is very good.
    The other started some games as a freshman.
    One safety is returning and is very good
    The others need to prove themselves.
    Getting off the bus they do look like football players.
    The returning safety is being checked out at NIK.
    Either they will or they won’t be a problem.

    Our OC is in his second season and is comfortable with his players.
    The players are comfortable with the offensive system.*
    The playbook is opening up.
    Our QB has put on 15 lbs of muscle.
    Our top 2 receivers are back and their back ups look like starters
    We have our secret weapon, JaySam, returning.
    The O-line has reasonable experience.
    Is competing very well with our D-line
    Is aggressive and sometimes just plain nasty

    Our RBs must step up. If not one then by committee.
    The kicker must come through adequately but not necessarily spectacularly. It will be easy to find fault but we should be OK.

    * On the first day of fall practice the offense started to install more of the offense. We were on the first day where we were last year at the first game.

    IMNSHO If we play up to our capabilities, we all will be happy with the Pack. If the ball bounces our way a few times, we will be very happy and our expectations level will go off the charts.

    So, are we stealing We Believe from 1991 ECU?

    Didn’t realize ECU had a copyright on believing. Perhaps they should put it to use themselves in 2017.

    Really looking forward to football. DD Inc have done a great job putting the program in a position to have the best season in a long time.

    Secondary is a bit of a concern – as is field goal game. All in all, the most complete team we have had in my memory. A credit to his building….

    But now we have to sign on the line that is dotted.

    During Earle Edwards’ first 6 years he was 9-21-2. The last 11 years Coach Edwards’ teams finished 1st or 2nd in the conference 8 times.

    In his first 4 years Doeren is 9-23 — very similar to Edwards. Will the future be similar?

    I’ll eat my shoes if we don’t take a poop in Charlotte. Before you scathe, I have 6 seats in the home of Scam Newton so I’ll say as though feels….I hope we beat ass, I’ll begin to be excited. Until then, don’t fall for it Charlie Brown

    Breaking Dan Morgan’s leg is noteworthy. IIRC, I watched Brett Favre pick up a yard of sod in an attempt to refill a seven foot divot.

    May I suggest that the “quiet optimism” coming out of West Rawlee and other places is somewhat deafening?

    We need “Details”!!!

    Where forth art thou, brothers in the bond?

    Can’t help ya. Been trappin’ otter on the French Broad…spotty to no wifi on the Tennessee side.

    Got some opinions, though. CJ Riley will give teams fits as they hone in on Harmon.

    Summer vacation lives on. Brown Trout are biting on Paint Creek. Later

    Well, since I’ve been paying attention the line has moved from -5 NC State to -5.5, and now to the more significant -6 number. That’s neato I reckon for the 1st game.

    As far as making the playoffs….

    My book has NC State at 33 to 1 to even win the ACC championship with exactly 8 teams in front of us with better odds. 16.5 to 1 we even win the Atlantic.

    One thing I’m sure of: We aren’t the only team that “believes”. You folks try not to get suffocated by the hype. My expectations are staying put for now.

    What a flippin’ surprise! If we finish 10-2, your expectations would be what? 7-5?

    How about refresh my memory. What are your expectations?
