Hello again my Wolven friends. I’ve been away, but now I’m back (everyone groans).
In all seriousness, my apologies for being absent since baseball ended. Life has a way of inserting itself into….well, life.
I’m kinda doing this on short notice today because our good friend, BJD95 is on loan to the gods of Best Buy. Or maybe Lowe’s. Or maybe Home Depot. WhoTF knows with that guy? Either way, he’s otherwise engaged with appliance delivery, so you’re stuck with me for this week.
The Pack rolls into Louisville today at 12noon EDT to see if they can run with the horses. Last week, we managed to stay with the Tiggs pretty well. My kingdom for a kicking game. I was in the mountains of NC/VA with only spotty cell coverage to keep up with the score. So I was spared most of the heartache. Mostly. I knew we’d tied it at 17, and lost coverage to keep up with the score. At a roadside store, a very kind hearted VT fan was listening to their game. I asked if he knew anything about ours. He didn’t.
But he did call his buddy to find out for me. He told me we were driving for the winning FG. “No…no, we aren’t” I told him. A few minutes later he came to the back of the store to find me and tell me we’d missed.
Nonetheless, this guy was aces to have gone out of his way to help me keep up, in spite of the result. Hat’s off to you mountainous VT fan.
‘Ville is a nearly 3 TD fav currently. -20.5 is the last line I saw.
Lamar Jackson is probably the Heisman front runner currently. It’s time to dash his hopes IMHO. Hit him hard, hit him often. Give him the Teddy Bridgewater special…
Here’s some links….
The Cardinals (5–1, 3–1 ACC) came away with a 24–14 victory over Duke in its last outing. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson continues to solidify his status as Heisman frontrunner, throwing for 1,806 yards and 15 touchdowns, and also running for 960 yards and another 11 scores so far this season.
The Wolfpack had a chance to pull off an upset over Clemson and put a serious dent in the Tigers’ bid to return to the national championship game. But NC State Kyle Bambard missed a 33-yard field goal at end of regulation that would have won the game and Clemson eventually prevailed in overtime, winning 24–17.
Game Day: Louisville vs. NC State (CardChronicle.com)
NC State has never been known as a defensive powerhouse school but the 2016 defense has shown to be much improved. The Wolfpack has a front seven that has really gotten after the quarterback and they have a back end that has been serviceable at stopping the pass. The Wolfpack has a good amount of speed but they will be tested with trying to contain Lamar Jackson in the run game.
Never say never, jerkweed. It hasn’t been that long ago that our D-line dominated the NFL draft. You’ve really pissed me off now. Now I want us to not only beat you and ruin your boy’s Heisman hopes, but I want us to hurt him.
Obviously, the good folks at the ‘Ville can’t tell time.
OK, I’m out of time.
These Game Day guys have all picked against us as I type. Can’t blame ’em. But it’s time to SHOCK THE WORLD!!!!!!!
White on Red unis today guys.
