I think it is a bit too early to say how many wins that NC State needs to get in. The value of each win changes each week based on what our opponents do, so I think those trying to say an absolute number of wins will get us in may be sorely disappointed. It’s a point in time view and it will be until Selection Sunday, much as VaWolf sets it out.
Circle the Syracuse game. Our zone offense has been ugly, and they’re typically quite tough at home. FSU could be very tough as well given their size. UNC will be out for revenge. Long story short, there is a lot of work left to be done.
