NC State vs. LA Tech Game Thread

Yay, kickoff is minutes away! Need a reason to be positive? TOB has left town. And Skip Holtz is coaching the other team.

I will see you in the comments for late August fun and hilarity. Nobody knows what to expect from either team, so enjoy the ride.

    Well, one way or another I’m sure.

    Plus I had to channel my Clubber Lang.

    DD and staff, give us an autumn to remember. Sheridan was only 8 points away from an 11-1 season my sophomore year. Victories sprinkled in with red lights. No matter what happens, I know State can build a winning program on a much higher level. That is not an unrealistic expectation. Go Pack!!!!!!!!

    I’m gonna channel my inner Step Brothers, Wuf.

    Woohoo, kickoff fail.

    Long completion to a dude I’ve never heard of (redeeming Amerson’s number).

    We ran a read option play on the first of the game. Can we have RW back?

    Very efficient drive for the quick touchdown! Mitchell is very confident and so far, very good.

    ESPN3 up on the big screen. Touchdown Wolfpack!

    GREAT drive to start the game!

    I know that La Tech had the worst defense in the country last year, but that drive was buttery smooth. Like lemon juice in your eyes after the last 5 years of predictability.

    UPTEMPO baby!! SIX!

    They scored almost as fast as USC last Thursday

    Did we even have a 3rd down?


  13. Rick 08/31/2013 at 12:37 PM #

    Great start. I hope that is a sign of good things to come.

  14. Rick 08/31/2013 at 12:38 PM #

    I am doing the happy that TOB is gone dance.

  15. Rick 08/31/2013 at 12:38 PM #

    What did you do to your knee?

  16. bill.onthebeach 08/31/2013 at 12:38 PM #

    Now that is the WAY to start the DD era !!!

    Where the hell is everybody???

    Now let’s see if the DEFENSE can match the Offense… 3 and out would be nice….

  17. CaptainCraptacular 08/31/2013 at 12:39 PM #

    PACKed house, lots of energy, impressive first drive.

    Me likey!

  18. old13 08/31/2013 at 12:39 PM #

    Liked the first play – got the QB’s nerves settled!

  19. BJD95 08/31/2013 at 12:41 PM #

    Torn meniscus, Rick. Probably from tennis. Or just from being an old f-ck.

    Long term, I really like this offense. Pace, and multiple looks and options. Hard to prepare for. Glad the murmurs about running 80-90% of the time appear unfounded.

  20. bill.onthebeach 08/31/2013 at 12:41 PM #

    There you go boys… THREE and OUT !!

  21. eas 08/31/2013 at 12:42 PM #

    Mitchell looks good. Almost like watching RW again….almost. I love this new tempo. Love it!!!!

  22. eas 08/31/2013 at 12:44 PM #

    Smith is a 1 man show!

  23. BJD95 08/31/2013 at 12:44 PM #

    Remember…Mitchell was essentially supposed to be a poor man’s Jacoby Brissette. So really excited to see him if he can do it even better than this.

    And that’s 14-zip.

  24. Rick 08/31/2013 at 12:45 PM #

    It does not appear we are going to be predictable.

    I do not remember Smith but he can fly

    I had knee surgery a year or so ago. Now I am fighting arthritis. Age sucks

  25. packpowerfan 08/31/2013 at 12:45 PM #

    Holy Rashard Smith. Granted, he won the Biletnikoff for me in NCAA14, but wow.

    TD Dayes!

    Get it Pack!
