There is more news for a Monday morning in the middle of the summer than one could imagine. The UNC athletics and academic scandal, Penn State and the NCAA, pre-season basketball and football articles, and yesterday’s ACC Kickoff creates a TON of items available for discussion.
Really the big news of the day from an NC State perspective was the updated depth chart, which points to some significant changes up front. With Rob Crisp at left tackle and R.J. Mattes at left guard, that side of the line has the potential to be really good. Additionally, Moose Greene is listed–albeit as the fourth-stringer–which definitely soothes some fears regarding his situation. They could just mark that as a special “dog house” section, but I suppose fourth string sends the same message. I don’t care what TOB’s RB depth chart looks like; give me a Moose-Creecy 1-2 and an improved OL and our outlook gets a whole lot better.
As I type this, the NCAA is currently announcing their sanctions against Penn State. You can follow a national conversation on the topic at the #PennState on Twitter. SFN has a conversation going on right here.
