Clemson has always been a good but there is a vast difference even bw the deshaun Watson championship team and last years champ team. Clemson has had our number, even when they're down, but many of those games have been winnable.

In past years we needed to play great and some luck, now we need to play perfect and have a ton of luck. Clemsons play and recruiting has progressed to another level. It's not just this season, it's the next 10-20 seasons, maybe with a few exceptions here and there, where we can't even hope to get to the championship game.

Im an nc state fan. I want a fucking championship in something. We had chances in past years where we're rolling the dice and maybe, just maybe, we could get there, now we're rolling the dice for 2nd. 2nd in division no less.


Besides excitement is highly personal, you guys feel free to get excited about whatever you want, I'm stating my opinion.

"But at the same time, it was only 2 years ago that we finished 6-2 and lost to Clemson by a TD and that was the difference in us winning and losing the division."


Yes.

"You should only be pessimistic about the season"


Im not pessimistic about the season. If QB is any good we good have another pretty good season. But for a 3-4 year stretch, I went into the season thinking "there's a shot". I had doubts about that shot last year, and no hopes this year.

As time passes, it become even more evident that 2017 was our chance to win the conference. A year before Trevor Lawrence is QB, we had Clemson at home, we had a veteran team, strong D, otherwise weak/down year in the conference.

It was already evident at the time, but it’s even more obvious now.

wonder if rwoody was excited about any of our seasons when FSU was dominating the conference, since, you know, foregone conclusions and what not

I mean we've got a far better record vs fsu than clemson in my fan history, but that game vs fsu in Doerens 0-fer season was one of the few football I was intentionally skipped in my adult life.

But yes, in an average nc state pre season, I'm far more excited if there isn't an insanely dominant team to get through.

[Edited on July 23, 2019 at 7:16 PM. Reason : What did you think I was gonna say lol]

If I clarified "hard to get excited" to "hard to get AS excited" or some shit, is my statement still controversial?

This is true and condolences to your Dubs.

But going into a season would a person be more excited if there team was 1/50 to win a championship, or 1/500, or equal excitement for both scenarios?

I mean expectations should be lower this year than the last couple years, just because of our own attrition from losing players, no matter what Clemson has done.

Yes I would say my preseason excitement/expectations/whatever are based on at least two things:
1. How good we are expected to be
2. How good our oppenents are expected to be

Meh. Other than Clemson every other game on our schedule is winnable on paper. No one in the Atlantic outside of Clemson is really a proven commodity and is having significant turnover. Our 2 Coastal opponents are changing staffs and schemes. Our 4 OOC games should be 3 cakewalks and 1 game that it's hard to predict, WVU lost a TON and changes coaches.

Really comes down to whether or not we find our next starting QB and if we our co-OCs can be at least close to as good as Drink was.

^agreed. We have our own question marks and concerns to deal with...new QB, lost WRs, and OL, etc. But I think this could still be a fun year and because the rest of the ACC after Clemson is wide open, we could make a run for that #2 spot in the division. I know that’s not much to be excited about. But there really is only 1 sure L on that schedule.

Yeah I wanna be clear, I’m not predicting 11-1. I just mean, we have a ton of toss ups and only 1 game where we have no business winning. Everything else is winnable. Also, basically everything in conference is totally lose-able as well.

Love to know who approved this promotion they are doing now of players "rolling" into camp in a helmet car, a scooter.........and a Rolls Royce SUV. i get that it's a rented prop vehicle or something (probably? 99% sure) but man, talk to about bad optics.

I think it's great optics for anyone not an NCSU hater who will want to scream "NCAA violations" regardless of what the PR team does.

depends on who is viewing it. it might be bad optics in the sense that it gives fodder to rival fans to say we're cheating. but who cares what they say and think? they're rival fans, so we aren't trying to win them over. it's potentially good optics in the eyes of a recruit that sees it and thinks we're super cool and fun and then maybe we'll be on that recruit's radar. for the people that matter (recruits) it's not bad optics.

Man I guess I'm the unpopular opinion/hot take guy of this website. I thought a video that implies ncaa infraction with no context is a bad look while we're literally under investigation for improper benefits. Would you really put it past the NCAA to see this going all around and come ask questions? They're bored in their office, why not fuck with nc state?

Should our team make videos showing coaches handing players cash as they walk into practice? Maybe a video of a professor telling a player just to write a paper about football for an A.

I get where you’re coming from. But assuming this isn’t some blatantly ridiculous violation and it’s all a stunt that was surely approved by our own compliance office, I don’t really see the big deal.

Btw it also would have been better as one longer video. As it is, the Rolls tweet is going to be passed around without any context of the other ones that make the bit obvious. If you just watch that video alone, you're just wondering how a college player can afford to drive a Rolls.

Barstool is absolute total garbage so if course they've pulled the raw video, not even the tweet, and posted it talking about begging for ncaa violations.

I guess I'm thin skinned but I'd prefer we not give national "media" reason to shit on us. It like the Doeren laptop thing, at the end of the day it's harmless and should have been minor, but I see mentions to it over and over again.

Its great publicity and good recruiting tool. Recruits see the NFL doing it and now equate NCSU.

Not to mention what other Univ has this kind of marketing and publicity going on right now well ahead of the season?

Great idea by the team at NC State to do this.

Some of yall getting your old man on hating on it. Lighten up. If you watch the other videos you know it's nothing big. If you automatically assume its NCAA violation you're that dumb to think they didnt run it by compliance?

Please....get out of here with the GET OFF MY LAWN!

I have to agree, I don't see it as a real story. I saw Bar Stool's tweet about it, but honestly to me this is not news. They're a bunch of 20-somethings, let them enjoy their life. They were honestly pretty good, especially Mackenzie Morgan's. If anyone's getting their sports takes from BS News, that indicates how seriously you should take them

I mean...that’s not true. We’ll see how SCar and Miami finish the season. But SCar isn’t very good this year. Miami sure didn’t look the part last night. UNC being 2-0 is impressive, no doubt. Neither is better than the Lamar Jackson team we beat in Raleigh on thursday night imo.

Also, if you already believe these 2 UNC wins are better than any DD has had...then we could go 11-1 this year and you’d still think that because our division blows outside of Clemson.

Out of curiosity, what is considered to be DD's best win?

Wins against opponents that ended the season with at least 7 wins:

2018 Marshall (9-4)
2018 Virginia (8-5)
2018 Boston College (7-5)
2017 Marshall (8-5)
2017 FSU (7-6)
2017 Louisville (8-5)
2017 Boston College (7-6)
2017 Arizona State (7-6)
2016 Old Dominion (10-3)
2016 Wake Forest (7-6)
2016 UNC (8-5)
2014 Georgia Southern (9-3)
2014 Central Florida (9-4)

I guess the 2016 UNC game?
