We will start to learn some things about our new coach over the next 2 months. Go Pack!12/30/2017 at 3:28 PM #128352
Headed down Interstate 85 on a bitter cold, sunny winter day… a day just like today weatherwise all across North Carolina…
I wish I had 1/2 the gas money I’ve spent over the years making that trip today… Boys… we have us one helluva SFN cookout!!!
Today’s trip to Death Valley by Coach KK & Company, reminded me of the first time I drove by the Clempsom exit on I-85South.
Senior year -Christmas break – 1975. Actually, I had taken extra classes, made the grades and had finished all my classes three weeks earlier so it was celebration party time for real. I didn’t know exactly what I was going to do after graduation, but I knew I was headed down I-85 to….
HotLanta and the Peach Bowl v. West Virginia!!!
As it turned out…. that Peach Bowl was a crossroads…
The young West Virginia Coach, ya’ll know, was Bobby Bowden. The next August, Coach Bowden moved to Tallahassee; I got there for a 18 month stint in the Sig-Ep house and B-school that September.
More importantly, I had convinced that tall girl from Atlanta who was down the street at St. Mary’s — the one I hadn’t dated yet — to give me the New Year’s Eve Hotlanta tour the day after the game… She did not disappoint.
In fact, tomorrow night I’ll be looking at the same smiling face across the dinner table 42 years and 4 kids later….
We made a bunch of trips up and down I-85 over those years, until we finished burying everybody.
Told the kids to roll the windows up in the car everytime we passed that Clempsom exit, so we wouldn’t get that Tigger smell in the car too….
Back to the basketball game today….
Needless to say…. December was a ‘little’ disappointing, for more reasons than one… and it’s gonna take us a couple weeks to get our heads and legs right for conference play.
The Tiggers are a good team and we’ll be ‘challenged’ in every way.
I’m advising “Patience”…

At the Under 12 in the 1st half…
PACK holding it own…
This one is shaping up to come down to ‘who’?
Who makes the other guys do something he don’t want to do?
Who makes the streaks?
Who gets the good breaks?
GO PACK!!!#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/30/2017 at 4:21 PM #128359
Does Freeman pass? More importantly, is KK okay with his poor shot selections? Seems like it’s been a theme for this season to date.12/30/2017 at 4:26 PM #128360
Keep those turnovers coming!12/30/2017 at 4:28 PM #128361
Shoot… 2 fouls on Y7. 🙁12/30/2017 at 4:29 PM #128362
At the Under 8 in the 1st half…
PACK picking it up a bit, but not quite enough yet…
At 11-1 coming in to the game, the Tiggers seem a little frustrated…
GO PACK!!!#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/30/2017 at 4:29 PM #128363
Ugly first 12 but we are still ahead. Frenchy will need to play the rest of the half after Abu registers his second.12/30/2017 at 4:32 PM #128364
Frenchy again!12/30/2017 at 4:34 PM #128365

Coach Rat and Dookies play great DEFENSE and hold on to save the day against the Noles — 100 -93…

Cmon, Pack! Finish the half STRONG!12/30/2017 at 4:46 PM #128371
Can Al Freeman actually play bball???12/30/2017 at 4:48 PM #128372
This is the kind of drought you’d better get used to with this team. Al Freeman and Doran have been awful with the ball this half.12/30/2017 at 4:49 PM #128373
Klempson finishes the half on a 23-8 run.12/30/2017 at 4:50 PM #128374
Smoke if you got ’em…
On the Big Board — Pack down 33-24
Damn lucky to be this close…
We shot 25% from the floor…
and no FGs the last six minutes…
hustle ain’t gonna take you but so far…
POP!!!#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/30/2017 at 4:51 PM #128375
Hoping for a better 2nd half… time for a beer…12/30/2017 at 4:56 PM #128376
Does Freeman pass?
For answer, see last 9 seconds of UNC-G game.
At least we are semi-competitive…sort of12/30/2017 at 5:00 PM #128377
Fools Gold hitting all those 3’s against that tenacious Jacksonville Dolphin defense
