The football season has been very disappointing. We all knew it would be with the departure of Chuck Amato. (on a personal note, I feel he did a great job) What do you guys think about the B-ball season coming up. We have a great returning class, and a group of freshman ranked in the top ten in the nation. I get really excited about NCSU Basketball. I have even heard "Preseason top 10" tossed around in a few conversations. I know we are picked to finish in the top three of the conference. Can't wait to see things get going. What Ya'll Think?
HOOOOWLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!

Well, Wolfpack Football has been disappointing since Rivers graduated. Chuck did a great job in building excitement around the program and getting booster support, but the turnover in assistant coaches and his inability to land another quality QB and OL really hurt us. I always liked Chuck, but unfortunately it did not work out. Hopefully O'Brien will be able to right the ship but quite frankly, he has a very tough road ahead. The next three years will be very tough for Wolfpack fans.

Now I was disappointed, at first, in hiring Sidney as coach.....mainly because I could not believe we had whiffed on so many other coaches with bigger names. I thought one for sure would want to come and coach at State. But last season was the most exciting I remember in basketball for a very long time. I was in school when Sidney under Valvano won it all and I got to go back to Reynolds for that last home NIT game this past year, now that was exciting. We certainly have a better chance at having a winning season in basketball than football this year. But I never would have imagined the football team could be that bad, with all that Chuck was supposedly doing during his tenure. But I still watch every game that comes on tv and go when I can...I will always support the Wolfpack (I dont always have to like it though).

Same here. I go to games when I can get tickets, and if it is on the tube, I usually plan my whole schedule around it. As far as Amato, He took us to what? Five bowl games in seven years? Don't know the specifics. Something like that. He recruited great players. You can look at the NFL draft over recent years and you see that. Underclassmen taken in the first round,etc.. I know the team has talent. I guess they don't click or something. The have a true freshman QB, and a True HB that are highly rated players. Maybe some future ahead. As far as Rivers, I loved to watch the guy play, but if it was not for a good backfield, Mainly TA Mcleondon, he would have never been as good as he was. Remember the triple overtime loss to Ohio State? Exciting times.

Never been a big sports fan. If I do watch it is Hockey(Go "Canes!) or College football (GO Pirates!). I don't agree with the Pro salaries so I wont support it and NASCAR was ruined in the late 80's early 90's so I watch a little but not much..

That was a good win for those boys on that team, they really needed that boost. Evans played well, guess we might should have played him a little more in the other games. But a big relief for the Wolfpack nation. Looking forward to seeing if we can build on that and salvage this season. Sure is nice to another one in Win column. Go Pack!
