OK, perhaps that title is a logical absurdity. But the fact remains that the Pack travels to VT today to kick off its ACC schedule. It never really f

I’ve seen a comment in one of the forum threads predicting that ACC teams will go to a box and 1 to stop Cat. I would think that a zone would be more likely. We pretty much know what Gott has, so let’s see what Buzz rolls out….01/02/2016 at 11:43 AM #95637
Needless to say…MUST WIN GAME.01/02/2016 at 12:19 PM #95642
Agreed Va. I’d 3-2 the hell out us until our bigs could prove otherwise.01/02/2016 at 12:21 PM #95643WulfpackParticipant
Yea, gotta win this won with what we have coming up.01/02/2016 at 12:49 PM #95646
Northeastern is MUCH better than VPI. Play like we did that game, and we should roll this afternoon. The castrated turkeys just lost their best guard to a broken foot, too.01/02/2016 at 1:38 PM #95647

Guilty. You may be right about the zones, but perhaps GFK and Twin A can make teams hgthat zone pay.
We have no shot to win games where Cat doesn’t score 20+ so that will be the absolute focus of the defenses we encounter.01/02/2016 at 1:52 PM #95648PapaJohnParticipant
They aren’t shooting well from outside, we aren’t guarding well from outside. Given Pack luck, sounds like a formula for VT to fill it up.
Pomeroy is picking them by 1, but that probably doesn’t consider the loss of Clarke. You’d have to think we are favored, even though it is a road game.
Big Questions for me:
Can Cat keep up the number of minutes without being less effective?
Can Mav handle teams game planning for him?
Can the bigs limit the fouls enough to be effective in league play?
Can the bigs score enough to take some of the pressure off the perimeter?
Are we EVER going to start using our athleticism to play defense?01/02/2016 at 1:58 PM #95649TheAliasTrollParticipant
I didn’t even realize we played today until just now. Just happened to check the schedule to see when our next game was and apparently it’s in 2 minutes. Nice! Go Pack!
For those curious, we are favored by 2.501/02/2016 at 2:00 PM #95650
^ Timing is everything. Well done, Sir.01/02/2016 at 2:07 PM #95651
Take the Pack and the points. Feelin’ frisky!01/02/2016 at 2:07 PM #95652
Fastest turnover ever?01/02/2016 at 2:07 PM #95653

Good help so far. Active Hippo is a good NC State.01/02/2016 at 2:11 PM #95655
Does Buzz have less neck than usual today?01/02/2016 at 2:12 PM #95656
Scoring is slow to start.
Ugly game so far.
Agreed it is a must win.01/02/2016 at 2:12 PM #95657
Doubling Abu? Must not have access to any game video on us.01/02/2016 at 2:13 PM #95658

Hard to get less than none01/02/2016 at 2:14 PM #95659
Scared to take against anya01/02/2016 at 2:14 PM #95660
Twin A with a little Buckets action. Interesting.01/02/2016 at 2:14 PM #95661
Cat looks good early01/02/2016 at 2:15 PM #95662
Holy shit, KH is in full-on BEAST MODE today. VPI is scared shitless of him. Changed the game completely.01/02/2016 at 2:17 PM #95663
Anyone pay attention to KH’s footwork those opening 6 minutes? Dunno if he specifically worked on that as part of his weight loss program (maybe he did tai-chi or boxing?) but man, were his feet QUICK.01/02/2016 at 2:20 PM #95664
Oh dear lord…I knew our bigs weren’t good from close in, but Abu just airballed a two footer, and it wasn’t even close to drawing iron. I mean….wtf?01/02/2016 at 2:22 PM #95665
Serious, I think Abu needs to see the eye doctor.
