    If I was a bettin’ man, I’d say the over looks good on our game. I think we can score at least 16 (Deraney’s leg scoring 9) and FSU only has to have 25.
    …but I’m not a betting man

    It sure would be nice if we could score 25 or more somtime soon. It’s been over a year.

    I predict a closer game. If the our twelfth man doesn’t get taken out of the game early. FSU may try to confuse the young quarterback but they will have to focus on Brown or he will eat them up. If Brown gets over 100 yards rushing, we win. I have not been impressed with FSU offense this year.

    Well, we didn’t even come close to 40 combined when playing BC, despite their better offensive performance and awful defense. The under looks like a good value to me.

    “It sure would be nice if we could score 25 or more sometime soon. It’s been over a year.”

    In 16 games under Trestman as OC, NC State has scored over 24 points once, against Eastern Kentucky, which was the 2004 home opener.

    The Wake v. Clemson line looks enticing.

  7. cfpack03 10/03/2006 at 2:06 PM #

    Agree. Clemson will destroy the decs, exposing them as the crap team they are.

    I’d take a piece of that UMd line!
    Tech looks really, really good; UMd looks really, really bad.
    The Wake, Clemson line looks high to me, I’d take Wake.
    Miami will take no prisioners against unx, while 18.5 is a lot to give away, I think that Coker is fighting for his job so he’ll pour it on.
    State & FSU, I don’t know what to think. Sttate has to be one of the poorest lines to bet of any D1 school.

    State hasnt covered a spread since Raegan was President, i know because i have a degenerate gambling problem.

    man, the raegan years were great werent they?

  10. RickJ 10/03/2006 at 2:52 PM #

    ^State covered in the last game we played.

  11. packbackr04 10/03/2006 at 3:29 PM #

    you are right rickj^^
    i was merely venting due to the large sums of money i have lost on STate. my comment was more of a generalization based on our inability to consistantly cover for the past 5-10 yrs. i have won some big games betting on STate, but i have lost more than i care to remember, and many against teams that we should have beat/covered

    Ted Kennedy must be tired of losing too. The Senate passed legislation to outlaw online gambling yesterday.

    First let me say I don’t gamble (as a general rule) but for the life of me I can’t figure our what business it is of Congress if someone wants to gamble in their own house? I guess because they don’t get tax money from the spending it is wrong.

    state and wake are mortal locks—you heard it here first—also—i thought that heuy long had no enemies

    Of all those Duke is the most likely to bust the spread. Bama rarely scores 30 pts, and when they do, the other team is gonna have scored plenty as well.

    We have to ambush Florida St and force their hand early, because if given the opportunity, they will grind it out. Our D is good enough to turn Weatherford over, but they may also be worn down due to our struggling offense, and Bobby will be aware of both these things. Our D has also struggled with the run. I know FSU hasn’t been able to run so far (Rice doesn’t count), but I fear that trend will end Thursday. If we get an early advantage in Field position which we turn into a two score lead, we can beat ’em just like we did last year, force the pass, and then bend but don’t break.

  16. cfpack03 10/04/2006 at 9:21 AM #

    Both teams are similar to last year’s teams, minus our D. Our DL pressured the hell out of weatherford and he threw 3 ints. We need to do the same this year.
    I’m rethinking my first thought on the over that I posted yesterday. We win only if its a low scoring game.
