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. […]
Sleep Peacefully Tonight
No; it’s not National BBQ Day. It seems to me that too many people have no idea what Memorial Day stands for or why it is important. It’s always been my hope that by sharing details of a specific event that we would all gain a greater appreciation of what Lincoln meant when he […]
They Forgot the Sage!..Postgame Haikus For Wolven
Too many plays lost Coaches planned plays and players Wake made more to cost.
I Absolutely Love a Good NE Chowda
Looks good, doesn’t it? Man, with the change of season…Hmmm. I like Fenway Park, too. I played there once in a Summer league All-Star game. …But ya wanna know what I really like? I like our boy Chops’ take on Saturday’s game in the Forum. Chops has always been a longtime, square up, dude. I’ll […]
So, Ya Got a Visit To South Bend
” It’s a boy, Mrs. Dog! It’s boy!” Mrs. Dog smiled and drifted off. Drifted off into dreams of the boy wearing colors of blue and gold. It was pre-ordained. The boy grew, gathered with his leprechaun family, around the radio every autumn Saturday, and listened to the exploits of Lamonica, Hanratty and Theismann. Mr. […]
It Ain’t A Train Yet, But The Engine Looks Good…Combo Game Blog. Seriously, Who Uses That Nomer?
See that cowcatcher, there? It kinda’ reminds me of State’s front 7 v. FSU, last Saturday. Which, btw, didn’t get its full, head-cocked, attention. ( It should have.) Anyway, I saw that the Syracuse DL has 27 tackles for loss through 4. That prompted a time wasting search of film to discover, that they treated […]
Pssst…Redzone Offense. He’s 6’4″ Game Day Thread.
Can ya at least show me that y’all are workin’ on that fade thingy?
Lazarus Went On Vacation Too, Ya Know
“Lazarus, come out!” it was written. What was not, was that Laz, a landscaper by trade, cherished the smell of freshly scythed Bermuda-Rye. It reminded him of the glory that is God, and College Football. Children of SFN, behold! You prodigal sons that have returned for prophecy and proselytize, on the 2017 Wolfpack, shall not […]
Dad asked me to watch the National Championship with him. Why I said ‘No.’
The text from my father on Sunday was almost a rhetorical question. “Want to come over Monday for the game?” My reply instead: “I actually thought about how I would answer this last night.” My father graduated North Carolina in 1969. I graduated N.C. State in 1995. This has little to do with an interfamilial […]
Selection Sunday Post-Mortem
Well you either enjoy the seeding and bubble discussions that happen every year from Selection Sunday through the next Wednesday or not. There seems to be very few folks that fall in between those extremes. I always enjoy making fun of the talking heads that remove all doubt concerning which side of the 100 IQ […]
