ACC Standings

The following ACC Standings have the Wolfpack eyeing an opportunity to compete for an Atlantic Coast Conference Championship.

Chuck Amato: “This isn’t about Chuck Amato. This is about North Carolina State University. And that stuff, I don’t even read it. I don’t even know why it’s there. Look at what we’ve done.”


NC State and second place Wake Forest do battle on Saturday in Carter-Finley. The Demon Deacons still have games with Florida State, Boston College and Georgia Tech on their schedule.

Clemson’s comeback victory over Wake on Saturday most definitely saved their Atlantic Division title hopes. In addition to a game with the Wolfpack, the Tigers still have key games with Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech on their schedule.

    Here’s hoping we don’t fall into recent past trends of following a good performance with a stinker. Chuck can quiet all of us critics with a steady slate of good efforts and performances for the remainder of this season. Note, I did not say wins just good smart efforts. That’s all I or anyone else can ask.

    74, you mean like following the BC good performance with the FSU stinker? Just kiding. From reading and participating in the recent blogs, I have to say that some of us will find fault with anything and everything no matter how good the result. Corrections will not have been made quick enough or the play-calling didn’t suit us or he should have played so-and-so the entire game. We will still have a “weak” or “suspect” or “concern” about an O-line that protected Evans and paved the way for double the ground yardage FSU had been giving up. The lone sack was to a blitzer that Brown failed to pick up.

    I wish it were so and I like where you are looking but “quiet the critics?” I’d expect the sun set in the East before that happens. And I hope I’m wrong.

    I’ll be the first to admit, I had called Wake Forest a fraud of a football team, but their performance against Clemson impressed me. However, they aren’t as good as BC nor FSU, so I know we can do it

    Wake will be a real test, they are a good football team, I put our chances at 50/50

    WF is a good team maybe not a great team but they now have the starting talent to match up with many of the college football elite programs. Our performance against them (and theirs against us) will tell lots.
    For the first time since the Rivers years I’m looking forward with anticipation to the next game.

    We split with Wake in the past 4 years with the Home team winning. Let’s home that tradition continues.

    Wake is smartly coached and will not be underestimated after that Clemson game.

    I tend to think that the WP was “humbled” by their early season problems and (hopefully still) has an underdog attitude with something to prove. WF will be a good place to see if we can deal with success.

    I’m not laughing quite as loudly as last Thursday afternoon over the prospect of a division title for the Wolfpack. Had Wake managed to hold on, State would have had a major advantage over the other contenders. The Turtle vs. Ga. Tech should serve notice that the round man has enough to throw a monkey wrench in the scenarios where everything goes according to form.

    WFU is good, and well coached, but we have the overall talent dispursed all over the field. Play aggressive on offense, play smart and limit the mistakes, keep applying constant pressure on both sides of the ball and even with a lead, and I believe we can win it. If the coaches can turn it loose and keep gaining confidence, I even believe we can steam roll WFU in Carter-Finley this week end.

    wake is under-rated—they have the horses—just not as many as the upper echelon schools do—however—they get the most out of their group from strong coaching—the strength coach should not be overlooked here—they are as physical as anyone in the league—and solid team play—evans was recruited pretty hard by wake—they will be more familiar with him and his strengths and weaknesses than most other teams are at this juncture—the pack needs to improve to win—spot the ball

    Some people are getting way ahead of themselves with the Wake and Clemson games still to play.

  12. Wulfpack 10/09/2006 at 1:07 PM #

    We’ve got our hands full with Wake. They are very good. Solid all the way around. Never thought I’d say this, but with the way they’re playing they are even more dangerous than FSU. You know you’re going to get a sound effort out of them, excellent game plan, and they’ll come hungry. Make no mistake about it, this is going to be a test for us. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, but we win this one and my oh my what the year could be.

    I didn’t see the first 3 qtrs of the wake/clemson game but the stats show wake couldn’t run the ball. They had 200-some yds in the air, which is average. each club had 4 turnovers though. Did Wake just have great field position from the turnovers?

  14. for2n8son 10/09/2006 at 1:45 PM #

    ^ They had good field position because their kicker was unbelievable. He pinned the tiggers inside the 5 about two or three times.

    Where are all of the nay sayers about scheduling tough OOC competition. I say stack em up for Chuck A and see how many he knocks down. It’s been much more positive when he is facing the best competition around.

    And another thing, we’re not getting way ahead, we’re just getting PUMPED!!!

    Alright, I’ll lay off the coffee.

    My sentiments exactly. Until Evans was our QB, I dreaded the next game. Everything is different now. The whole team is fired up. As long as they don’t get carried away and get silly penalties, we can beat any team in the ACC.

    I am really happy every time I see that standing.

  18. WolfPup35 10/09/2006 at 8:50 PM #

    F.S.Who? is a hell of a lot better and faster than Weak Florist, however, the Pack DOES have the 1998 FSU game followed by Baylor—-as much as I try, those 2 games still wake me up at night. I do believe that this year’s Wolfpack team KNOWS what it can do, what it has to do, and what it cannot do against ANYONE ELSE IT PLAYS!!

    ‘Pack by 10–’nuff said.

    The next two weeks are so critical for us.

    Win both and we are basically guaranteed a 5-0 ACC start (no way in hell we lose to UVA…right?) and it’s a two team race b/w us and Clemson for the division.

    I think Wake will be tough but we should win it by 10 or so. Maryland on the road, on the other hand, scares me. They probably should have beaten GT Saturday.

  20. Wolfpack4ever 10/10/2006 at 5:36 PM #

    I forgot. It seems so long since we won TWO big games in a row. Let’s get that thought out of the space.

    If The Tank can push the center and a guard into Wake’s back field like he did BC’s, some of that misdirection will REALLY be misdirected. 😉
