Perhaps that is a slight exaggeration, but it sure does feel like it. (Hell, it has been 2362 days since the last football post on SFN!) I cannot remember a season with more hype and expectation, and it’s all deserved. Sports Illustrated has the Pack projected as the AP Preseason #11 team in the nation. […]
Well…That Went By Fast.
Can a football season be dissected down to 4 plays? No. No one in their right mind would do such a thing. 1: USC- First play of the campaign is a 90 yard kickoff return for a TD. 2: ND- A blown non-call brings a pick-six kerfluffle, absolutely flipping the world upside down. 3: CU- […]
I Fear Not The House Of Deacon. But Just In Case…
There are places in this world that exhude a strange and negative energy…places of my youth, where certain turns in the road or hollows always had an unsettling aura as if they echoed deeper vortexes of a dark or foreboding universe… oft in broad daylight. The poet in me is most sensitive to these, but […]
It’s Only a Flat Tire, But There Be Tigers Lurking
Flat tires are a bitch. I don’t care how adept you are at mechanical handiwork, changing it, especially when you have a destination in sight, someplace ya really wanna get to, is a pure pain in the ass. Worse, yet, is when ya pull out your tire iron, jack and spare, get it all laid […]
What Did Columbus Actually Say When Approaching Pittsburgh?
“Paisanos! We are in waters I ain’t seen in a long time!” Now, I am a student of history, and I’m pretty sure Chris never navigated the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio, but if he woulda, that, like many Wolfpackers, is what he’d have said. Trust me. Pretty sure he warned pilots about rocks along the […]
Paladin’s Coming To Town? Why? Who’s In Trouble Game Thread.
Believe me. When I hear that dude is riding in, I’m headed to the nearest church! Don’t even care if the roof trembles and shakes at my presence, it’s safer than the saloon. ( What? Waddaya mean it’s not THAT Paladin? Well…ok. What’s the difference? Somebody is apparently in trouble, just the same. ) The […]
Let the Hate Flow – U*NC Open Thread
I spent all day yesterday, and part of the day before, cooking. Then my extended family invaded the house, ate all my food, and left the house a complete and total shambles. But before they all left, one of my nephews, who was brought to MY house wearing a Carolina shirt, was pulled aside and […]
daU Comes for a Visit – Miami Open Thread
Greetings Wolven brethren. I’m getting a late start again today, so this is going to be short and sweet probably. Another Hurricane arrives today at Carter-Finley. Hopefully this one won’t flood my house like the last one. Miami (6-4/3-3 ACC) rolls into town today. They’ve had a somewhat similar season to our own Wolfpack . […]
Pack Heads to the HVAC Dome to Face ‘Cuse
Wolfpack Football has had a tough go of it for the past four weeks. A beatdown at the hands of Louisville and a WTF home loss to BC, were bookended by close heartbreaking losses to Clemson and Florida State. Instead of being 6-3 right now (or even 7-2…up yours BC), they find themselves beaten and […]
“Homecoming Never Looked So Good” BC Game Thread
Tiers. Remember that word we all used so freely back some years ago when HWSNBN and then El Sid were at the helm of the roundball? Well guess what? It’s reared its ugly head again. The ’16 Football version of the Pack has a few things to prove if it doesn’t want to be relegated […]
