I wouldn't put NC State into that category. They may be ranked, but they are far from elite. Any game can turn into a route if one team gets momentum, but I would expect a close game and wouldn't be surprised to see JMU win.

1) Breaking in a new starting QB.
2) We kind of have to believe OL, WR and to a lesser extent RB play will improve when we see it.
3) A decent amount of defensive turnover, especially DL and S.
4) NC State is not ECU. They're good enough to likely get a preseason ranking or be right on the outside.

I just don't think from what we saw out of our offense in 2017, that we're going to be able to keep up with their scoring enough to win. Our defense is only going to stop so much.

I am more confident though with MH still our coach. It would be a nearly guaranteed loss without him.

A little off topic but not worthy of a thread of its own so I'll put it here...

...thank Buddha UNCheat is reworking their seating at Kenan Stadium. For those who have been there, you know first hand that your knees are in your throat when trying to sit down. And that is for a 5'2" person. :>)

Maybe next time the Dukes visit The Land of Systemic Fraud, we will have less folks needing physical therapy from having to be there for 3+ hours...

Wow, though it was much needed, a drop from 63k to 51k is huge.

I've mentioned before that new stadium construction of a 40k stadium has about the same footprint as those old 1920s era 75k stadiums. They really crammed them in back then. ADA and modern fire codes dictate a comparatively much larger area.

I went to a game there last year and sat in the corner where the chair backs were already done. It's a big improvement.

But I can't understand why they are cutting 12K seats out to go down to 51K when they averaged 50K per game during a 3-9 season with let's face it a ****** home schedule besides Notre Dame game.

If you had sat in the old chairbacks you would understand. It's currently built for midgets.

Yep, I'm only 5'8" and I had a hard time getting to my seats so hopefully this is a big improvement. Keenan stadium is in a pretty setting and the aesthetics are top notch but I don't know what engineer measured the distance between the seating rows. I remember having to pee and thinking "I'll just hold it."

UNCheat also is notorious for overstating attendance at their games. For years, not sure about last year, they would always give a round number for each game’s attendance—51000 or 48000, never 50789 or 44982.

I’m not shocked at Richardson declaring but I am a little shocked at Hines doing it. Both are big losses for the Pack, no doubt.
