It’s always a little harder to stay on top of real-time news nuggets during the holiday season, so I wanted to take a quick moment to share a few item

UNCG is no slouch. And as poorly as we played the first 10 mins and the last 10 mins, that is most definitely a win to take and like it.12/31/2013 at 12:08 PM #33951TexpackParticipant
My biggest take from last night, while I was watching the Alamo Bowl, was how easily Tennessee handled UVa.12/31/2013 at 12:22 PM #33952MPParticipant
Throw me on the Cutcliffe bandwagon. I thought Duke looked pretty dang solid against FSU in the 1st half of the ACC championship game. FSU was just another level of talented. Looking forward to seeing how they do tonight.
With that said, TAMU will probably drill them by 5 TDs.12/31/2013 at 12:57 PM #33953WulfpackParticipant
Cut deserves every bit of praise he is receiving. It is Duke, people. Duke! Heck of a coach, and by all accounts a very solid man.12/31/2013 at 1:20 PM #33954
Don’t get me wrong — I LOVE Cutcliffe and agree that he deserves fantastic praise. But, some of the media fawning is just a little much and I couldn’t let it pass without taking a swipe.12/31/2013 at 2:26 PM #33955Pack MentalityParticipant
I was at the game last night. It was the first time that I can recall that during the post-game line of handshaking a near fight ensued. TJ Warren and the UNCG player Cain were having words and needed to get separated during the last minute of the game for some kind of trash talk when Warren was getting ready to shoot free throws. Then when the 2 of them came to shaking hands they got in each others face and the whole teams all had to circle around and separate them and then just run off the court real quick. Des Lee was really pumped up after this and ran around getting the State fans to cheer loudly. He then came and high fived all the people sitting in the front row on the way to the visitors locker room (I was one of the people sitting in that front row) along with Cat Barber in an extremely pumped up manner. It was pretty sweet.12/31/2013 at 2:58 PM #33956AdventurooParticipant
Can NOT disagree that we need more than Mr. Buckets and his back-up group. When you look up at the board and it is late in the first half and we have 27 an TJ has 15, it sort of (or else it should) hit you. What would happen if he pulled a groin muscles or chipped fingernail?
Dez Lee did look good last night. He got going and was a man on fire. Cat also had spirit, but still has not mastered the Lowe talent of passing. He must be coached by Whittenberg as he does not seem to mind putting up a shot, regardless of how great or ill advised.
Turner was not his hawk eye self….and Wood can tell you about that.
Listened to the end of the Wolfette’s game on the way home. Checked it as we stopped for a celebratory Blizzard….we were up nicely.
Think I will go to their game on Sunday. We will just OD on BB this weekend with the Pitt game at Noon on Saturday and the ladies on Sunday.12/31/2013 at 4:56 PM #33957wufpup76Keymaster
It’s my opinion that THE key to our offense is establishing a post presence. I’m disheartened by the lack of low post entry passes, but in fairness our bigs have not established themselves as a down low threat.12/31/2013 at 5:21 PM #33958mak4dpakParticipant
Vandenburg has got to become more aggressive in the paint. And Tyler Van Winkle needs to wake up! We have yet to see the Tyler of last year. Maybe discouraged at not starting, but gonna have to produce when you are in the game, to earn more playing time. Where are your 3s? This team needs you! Warren can’t be expected to do it all, because we see it wears him down. Come on team, and show up!!!!!12/31/2013 at 6:38 PM #33959
I saw plenty of times when the Vandwagon was open and asking for the ball, yet Cat decided to keep the ball and take the shot.12/31/2013 at 7:11 PM #33960Alpha WolfKeymaster
Barber needs to get stronger finishing his drives.
He also needs to see open men and get them the ball. Like a freshman QB, he’s locking in on a certain receiver and missing the rest of the court. We saw that in the OT against Central, where the kid from Charlotte would be wide open but Barber never considered passing him the ball. We’re seeing it now where he can’t seem to get the ball to Vandy, and prefers to pass around the perimeter instead. I think he’ll get better as the game slows down for him, but right now, I think it is a blur in his mind.12/31/2013 at 8:23 PM #33961bill.onthebeachParticipant
OK… the game of the week is on….
Down at the Peach Bowl…
DOOK scores first and leads the Aggies 7-0 !#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/31/2013 at 9:50 PM #33962
I’m not proud – Go Duke! I love to see Manziel crying on the sideline.12/31/2013 at 9:52 PM #33963
38-17 at the half. Crazy.
BTW, can we get the edit function back? We did have one, right?12/31/2013 at 10:03 PM #33964bill.onthebeachParticipant
Ply… yep … need that edit button here… AND we need to be able to start threads in forum like we used to…
Then we could have a Peach Bowl thread…
Now… Coach Cut is obviously a football genius….
He knows the Aggie Defense better than Sumlin does.
Only question is can Dook hold on for 3o minutes…
cause Manziel ain’t going to quit if he can get on the field.#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/31/2013 at 10:11 PM #3396513OTParticipant
The thing that surprised me most about the UNCG game wasn’t the second straight 68-64 game involving the Wolfpack, but rather that the listed attendance was under 6,000.
No matter who State was playing last night, this kind of crowd in a 23,000-seat arena in the heart of ACC country doesn’t bode well for the direction of this basketball program.01/01/2014 at 11:17 AM #35009
^ C’mon? Really?
In the middle of the holidays? With a team that is generally considered “Top 100” in the country? Playing against UNC-G?
If State was playing a real inter-sectional game in Greensboro then I would agree. But, a Monday night game vs UNC-G in between Christmas and New Year’s is nothing to use a barometer (imho).
