NC State turning into a really solid team after win over Louisville.

I’ll be the first to admit, I thought the Wolfpack were in big trouble after game 1. In a mistake prone opening loss to an average South Carolina team, the Wolfpack again appeared to be headed toward a season of unfulfilled potential. Since that game the Wolfpack have reeled off 5 straight wins. That includes …

Ranking the Power 5 Football Conferences after Week 5 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 that …

Virginia Tech is right on schedule despite loss to Clemson.

Sometimes after a loss to anyone there can be tendency to ask, what’s wrong, why did we lose, etc etc. Virginia Tech lost Saturday night to Clemson 31-17, but Hokie fans should still very encouraged by their program direction.

Hard to tell how good Georgia Tech is after 3-1 start, but they are dangerous.

Following Georgia Tech’s 33-7 win over UNC, it’s still hard to tell just how good the Yellow Jackets are. To be fair to the Tar Heels, they are an injury depleted team that’s just plan bad. Georgia Tech controlled the game from start to finish. Last week Georgia Tech beat Pitt 35-17 and in week …

FSU Opponent Preview: Wake Forest

Fool me once, shame on you. That’s the mantra going forward with this Seminoles squad. Going 0-2 to start the season is, I imagine, not what Seminole nation was anticipating. Heck, I imagine most of College Football wasn’t anticipating this. Despite 2017 being a circumstantial season for the Noles (to say the least), the loss …

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 …

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. …
