Dave Doeren has finally gotten that signature win

The tenure of Dave Doeren has been an interesting one at NC State. He was brought in to win games, and in his first 4 seasons it was looking rocky. He was not beating teams that he should have (last year ECU, BC are just 2 of those examples). The fan base was becoming very …

Ranking the Power 5 Football Conferences after Week 4 with Playoff Analysis

  While the playoff committee doesn’t rank the power 5 conference, there is no way conference strength – which means OOC results doesn’t figure in to a committee members thought process. Let me point out on my philosophy on these rankings – your most recent  OOC results count a lot, and you’ll see me reference …

Wake Forest and Duke are both 4-0 at the same time and it’s never happened before.

Congrats to Duke and Wake Forest for a couple of nice 4-0 starts to the season.

Florida State’s season is in a heap of trouble.

A month ago Florida State entered the season as a national title contender. Even after the 24-7 loss to Alabama the Noles playoff hopes were not completely dashed. QB Deondre Francois suffered a season ending injury, a hurricane disjointed the schedule, and FSU went into their game with NC State having not played in a month. …

Virginia’s hammering of Boise State changes outlook for the season.

Each football weekend, I give you my reaction to handful of ACC games. I very rarely comment on games that I didn’t watch a good a portion of. Let me just say I wasn’t able to watch, but the final minutes of Virginia vs Boise State. I still had to write a game reaction, because …

FSU Opponent Preview: North Carolina State

Amazing, we’re about a quarter of the way through the regular season, and FSU only has one game under their belt! No fault of their own, it just came after a heart-wrenching loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide, a season crippling injury to Deondre Francois, and a devastating Hurricane that impacted seven Collegiate football programs …

Taking stock of NC State 3 games into the football season.

Good evening all you ACC football fans. As a NC State fan, I came into this season with aspirations of 9 or if the cards fell right, a 10 win season. After the first 3 weeks NC State is 2-1, not a bad record, but not ideal. NC State lost to South Carolina because, South …

Clemson looks scary good while flat trouncing Louisville.

All I could think of as I was watching Clemson flatten Louisville was this team might be better than last year’s national championship team. That is bad news for the rest of the ACC and the rest of the country. Clemson was Louisville’s Super Bowl this year. It was their biggest home game of the …

At 3-0, this Duke Football deserves more Blue Devil fans show up to their home games.

Duke played a sloppy game today against a bad Baylor team. They won 34-20, and moved to 3-0. Daniel Jones made some uncharacteristic mistakes at QB, and the secondary gave up a couple long TD passes. You never really felt Baylor would win the game though. A win is a win. They took care of …

Pittsburgh fans literally fall asleep during blowout loss to Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma State was going to blow out Pittsburgh Saturday no matter what. The Cowboys are a playoff threat, and Pittsburgh even before today’s game looked at best like a fringe bowl team. Saturday turned into a highlight reel for Oklahoma State, where they could have scored 80 if they desired. It got so bad that …
