Game Week: Depth chart for UT game released

Game-Week, people!!! Excitement is in the air as the Wolfpack and Volunteers get ready for battle this Friday night at 7:30pm.

You can click here for some key information to start your week and click here for dozens of current conversations in which you will be interested.

NC State released an updated depth chart this morning that contained some very interesting developments.

  • Tony Creecy is listed in front of James Washington as the starting running back.
  • Mustafa Greene is listed as 3rd string on the depth chart, but I would be surprised if you didn’t see some of the Moose.  Reviews from practice have been promising.
  • C.J. Wilson started last season at boundary cornerback but is not listed on this depth chart.  Dontae Johnson is the starter with Jarvis Byrd backing-up.
  • True freshman Quincy McKinney is listed as the backup at left tackle.
  • Brandon Pittman is a sophomore and is the starter at strongside linebacker after beating out Rodman Noel.
  • JUCO transfer linebacker, Robert Caldwell is not listed on the two-deep.
  • Rashard Smith and Tobais Palmer will be playing the role of returners.
  • Bryan Underwood, who has a knee injury, is not listed on the depth chart, but is also not listed on the injured list for players out all season.
  • Underwood’s absence opens a sport for a true freshman, Charlie Hegedus to appear on the depth chart.
  • The fear that we all have in our linebacker depth can be partially mitigated by the impressive depth we have across the defensive line.

    I would really be interested in seeing the differences in sizes of our offensive line vs. their defensive line and visa versa….I remember the Iowa game in the Meadowlands years ago and their offensive line dwarfed us even though we won….
    I think Coach O’Brien is definitely on the right track with the amount of depth we have and it is good to hear as one injury here and there can change the outcome of the whole season…
    A win Friday night could make this one of the best and most special seasons sine the year Philip and the rest of the Pack put the beat
    down on Notre Dame!
    GO PACK!

    I suggest going to SFNForums and picking up this thread there.

    If Charlie Hegedus breaks out, I’m looking forward to a “Chuck it to Chuck” campaign.

    Excited – but aware that this season could be a painful one – (like RW’s sophomore year.)

    As usual, we’ll be on the margins. We should be able to beat or compete with 11 of 12 teams on our schedule. We can lose to 10 out of the 12 teams on our schedule.

    It will come down to injuries, turnovers and making plays….really going out on a limb there.
