I get it. It’s part of why I don’t buy season tickets - I know going in that there will be at least 2 games where it’s suffocatingly hot and absolutely no fun to attend. I just don’t have a ton of sympathy for people that pay for their season tickets knowing there are always hot as fuck games in September that will be miserable to attend and then they get mad when it’s hot as fuck and the game starts at noon. Of course it’s miserably hot. Of course I wouldn’t take a kid to the game. The complaints about it just seem excessive at this point. But idk. Maybe I’m just an insensitive asshole.

^^guess I’m just being an asshole about it and the fact that Justin agrees with me probably confirms that

I just don’t really get it. Who are we mad at? The athletic department for scheduling weaker opponent in the opening weeks? The TV networks? Do we just blindly cuss John Swofford because he’s clearly out to get us? I completely understand why people hate the noon kicks. I guess I just don’t really get why anybody’s surprised about noon kicks.

3:30pm kickoff games aren't really much different weather-wise. It's just hot as fuck during tailgating and kickoff and then starts to cool down, whereas noon games are nice for tailgating and get hot during the game.

^^^ my only preference for 3:30 over 12:00 is getting to sleep in. I think the point about tailgating temps is true but only applies to the first hour or so, by 10 it's hot.

Yeah, weather for 3:30 games isn't much different. I prefer the 3:30 time slot over noon because my kids play soccer and I'm on the soccer fields until 11:30 in Youngsville. That's a 'me' problem though. If it wasn't for that, I'd be out there as close to 8 as possible to tailgate.

It could be sunny and 70 degrees with 0% humidity for a noon game and people would still be annoyed by it and the stands would still be half empty at the start of the 3rd quarter.

It's not the heat that people hate about noon games, it's the overall negative effect on tailgating and Saturday. People don't want to get up early, they don't want to start drinking at 8am every home game, and they don't want to always have to cook/eat breakfast at the tailgate. The crowd in the 3rd quarter isn't because it's 90 degrees, it's because the concessions are weak and the beer lines/prices aren't worth it when you can get a pass to go back and eat/drink whatever your already brought.

The only people really leaving games early because of the sun/heat are people with small children and older folks, and that isn't going to change whether the game is at 11, 12, or 3:30. If you have a night game you'll still have those same people leaving early.

Also the entire student section leaves by halftime and doesn't come back. Pretty much every game now, regardless of opponent/kickoff time.

Yeah that happens when you routinely only rush 3 and when you do rush more than 3, the 4th is a linebacker giving up 75 pounds to an offensive tackle.

The difference being that by mid-late September the angle of the sun is much lower, and thus less intense at 330pm, than it would be at noon (peak intensity).

I hate noon games for a variety of reasons, but most have already been stated. And IMO Doeren can cry about the empty stands after halftime, after we start winning more and play less (none?) noon games.

Lol at the ultimatum...DD can complain about the pass outs once we have 0 noon games...which is a thing he totally has control over

Also, “after we start winning more”? He’s won back to back 9 win seasons, back to back winning records in the acc...hadn’t been done in 25+ years at State . I’m not saying DD is a HOFer, but he’s winning games at a better clip than most of his predecessors

Didn't realize Stephen Griffin was ALSO out Saturday. Obviously there are some structural issues with the D, but hopefully if we get all 4 (or 3 depending how you classify Bole) starters back, then execution will improve.

On how long it takes for Matthew McKay to develop trust with receivers

Quote :
"He threw a really good ball to Emeka in the game, and he ended up about 6 inches out of bounds on the catch. So, I think that trust is already there, we’ve just got to get the timing of those things. He did make a nice back-shoulder throw and catch in our opener to Emeka. I think that going with Devin [Carter], that’s what we’ve got to get so we’ve got it going on both sides of the field."


This guy is so out of touch.

The Inside Pack Sports podcast had a point that most QBs struggle in their first P-5 away game... Thought I'd compile the full list below:

Philip Rivers - 31/52 for 401 yards, 5 TDs & 1 INT. NCSU 41 Indiana 38
Russell Wilson - 10/21 for 92 yards, 0 TDs & 1 INT. NCSU 9 Clemson 27
Mike Glennon - 24/41 for 315 yards, 3 TDs & 1 INT. NCSU 27 Wake Forest 34
Jacoby Brissett - 4/18 for 35 yards, 0 TDs & 0 INT. NCSU 0 Clemson 41
Ryan Finley - 20/40 for 231 yards, 0 TDs & 2 INTs. NCSU 17 Clemson 24
Matt McKay - 23/48 for 207 yards, 1 TD & 0 INT. NCSU 27 West Virginia 44

At this point, I'm more concerned about getting the defense healthy than Matt McKay's development. I was cautious how the transition away from Drink/Finley. Hard to really grade considering we've only played one game against a P5 opponent. SP+ still has us at 7-5 on the year, which is what I expected going into the season.

Well, we averaged over 50 more rushing yards per game in the games he played last year versus the games he was out with injury. So he's definitely a key part of our running game.

Cole Cook graduating definitely hurt our running game last year.

We have other blocking TEs, just hurts to lose a SR leader and captain.

Should have lost that game too. IIRC Rivers hit 2 bombs to Koren Robinson at the death to snatch the win after we looked like shit all day. Pretty sure this was the same day as the last Brent Rd Party too btw.

DD has himself some troubles brewing. Injuries, lack of depth/experience. But as stated earlier, it's clear that Drink and Ledford were HUGE parts of this staff. There is definite drop off.

Making a bowl will be the goal and thats sad with DD in his 7th year.

the 335 still blows sausage

^idk about all that. This was a rebuild year all along. We were hopeful it would be an easier rebuild due to a weaker schedule. We have been looking at 2020 and 2021 as years where we’ll have more experience, especially for some of our younger talent. I don’t think there’s any reason to say DD is in trouble...yet.

This is what we are as a program. Very few programs are in a position to never have a rebuild season. I’m not saying we shouldnt strive to be better than we are. But I think there’s maybe 10 programs that never have to worry about rebuilding. We aren’t one of those programs. Such is life as a non power football program. Imo, the truer test for DD will be how those 2020 and 2021 teams pan out. That’s not to say this season should be a total wash, I just think we need to be realistic about what this season’s expectations are/were

Gopack.com clearly states that Authenrieth is a key part of our running game - no clue why anyone would argue otherwise.... but our running attack has been anemic the last two years so who knows how much that really matters.

And preach dms. SP+ is currently giving us a 55% chance of finishing between 7-8 wins. Solid year for new QB/OC/OL coach/replacing several offensive skill positions. There was obviously going to be a drop-off after Finley & the rest of our offense/Drink/Ledford left.

I've been skeptical of the OC's so far this year but tbf it's their first time as OCs with a new QB. DD hired Drink and Ledford, I have no reason to think he (or his staff) won't sort the rest of his staff out.

Very much this. And DD should be getting tons of credit for this, not shitted on. Throughout the entirety of our programs history, we have never seen stability at this high of a level. My God, our program has TWO 10 win seasons in it's history, and people are pissed because our rebuilt offense needs more than 4 games to match an offense run by one of our previous NFL skilled QBs?

How short are your memories that you forget the mediocre-at-best Mike O'Cain years, or the 2-3 wins when we were rebuilding under Amato and TOB.

If we were being honest, this year has actually gone a little better than should have been expected at this point. Our Defense has been drastically better than the previous couple years, and Ingle, Ingram and Wilson look to be the playmakers we hoped they would be at the beginning of the year. If we can get Smith-Williams and McCloud back, we will be in a good position heading into conference play.

Our offense was expected to sputter this year, especially at the start of the season with a new QB and some new additions on the OL. Hopefully MM can start connecting on some deep passes, but overall, he has been relatively mistake free.

Our special teams has actually exceeded expectations, and hopefully we can continue making an impact on the games with our punt return and kicking teams.
