^^Barring any significant injuries, I don't think the hype for that game is going anywhere but up.

Two programs trending up, bringing back a lot of talent, hell we've started showing up in some preseason top 25 polls already. Plus opening week, SEC vs. ACC, teams looking to take the next step, Muschamp, too many things to talk about to see it really trending south.

Fair points, but I'll be really surprised if shit tickets don't drop to around 50-60 on stubhub, seatgeak, etc... in the weeks leading up to the game.

The only ticket worth paying anything this year for would be going to South Bend. That is it.

yeah that's a silly thing to say. we get the defending national champs at home, the reigning Heisman winner at home on a Thursday night, and UNC is a home game this year too. UNC shouldn't be that good this year, but it'll still be a sell out game with demand for tickets on secondary markets.

Really thought Josh Jones should return and a successful season could really push he and Chubb up in the draft, but Josh just killed the combine.

For safeties he finished: #2 on bench press, #2 on 40, #2 on broad jump, and #3 on vertical.

^Except Tocho had an abysmal performance at the combine and already speculation with how bad he ran in the 40 and drills that he's going to have to consider moving to safety just to have a chance to make a team.

he ran a 4.54. that's not terrible. it's pretty average, which is what you would expect from him after watching him play.

btw, he was second for DBs in bench press (21 reps) and had a good showing with a 35" vertical and 10'5" broad jump.

that's not abysmal at all.

i would say that Dayes is the one who had a poor combine showing.

Anyone who seriously watched Dayes play knew who wouldn't test well. (No top end speed, etc..) He's a damn good player though and I wouldn't be shocked if he earned a niche somewhere in the league.

Tocho running a 4.5 and benching 21 reps is pretty impressive. He never looked fast on the team, but he's got pretty good ball skills. Will be interesting to see if he can carve out a role in the league.

Dayes ran a pretty slow 40 in high school IIRC, like 4.7 or something. He's always been more quick than fast. I still think he could be great in the right offense as a pass-catching back ala Bryant Westbrook.

He did have the biggest hands of any RB at the combine, so there's one thing going for him.

4.54 isn't awful, but it's not great, and apparently the reports of his running have people saying he should switch to safety.

I mean, his bench press was good, but just for CBs(no safeties in this), he finished: 40 - tied for 21st, Vertical - tied for 12th, and Broad - tied for 8th.

For a guy that was looking at 6th round or later to be drafted, he didn't really help his cause. Like I said, some analysts already saying he might have to project to safety after his combine showing. He was grouped under "fallers" after the combine.

Dayes tied for the lowest vertical and had the second lowest broad jump for RBs (but he did tie for 13th best bench press!). But you're telling me Tocho is the one who hurt his draft stock, by finishing near the top in 3/4 drills he participated in. 40 times are overrated. every single scout who's seen him play knows he's not a burner or a guy who makes up ground if he gets beat over the top. they don't need a 40 time to tell them that. even if he had ran a 4.3, it doesn't change how fast he plays.

FYI Teez Tabor ran a 4.62. He should probably switch to safety as well.

Yeah the fact that Brandon Barnes was the back-up RB on his HS team should have let everyone know just how good of a RB he really was.

He was a 5* ATH that should have played DB but he apparently didn't have the right mentality for defense so he wasted away at the bottom of the depth chart at RB.

Per Pack Pride:
Quote :
"Previously, NC State has used the Kay Yow Spring Game to simulate a live-game situation, but that could change this season according to head coach Dave Doeren.

"We're going through it today as a staff," Doeren told the media on Tuesday. "It'll be different. It's going to be more practice-oriented. There'll be a lot of situations... we're going to get a lot of special teams work. There'll be some live work as well, but it's not just going to be a game from head-to-toe.

"It's going to be a little bit more, quite a bit more situational stuff that we're going to do."

This is a definite change for NC State. Last year the roster was split into Red and White teams with essentially the starting offense playing the second-string defense, and vice-versa. Three's would be mixed in as well, but mainly you didn't get a chance to see starters versus starters. However, that's another change in 2017. While it won't be a full game, NC State fans will get a chance to see starters square off, which should add excitement even though contact could be limited, major reps could increase.

"Oh yeah, it's going to all be ones, ones, twos, twos, and threes, threes," Doeren said. "But there won't be a ton of tackling with some of those groups, just again trying to keep guys healthy and when you have that many players back, you kind of know what they can do.
"It's important for us, I don't want to have a spring game where I pull 18 guys out and make 'em watch the game. I don't want to do that. So just trying to get as many reps as we can with those guys in a smart way, and getting production out of 'em."

WINNING UP THE MIDDLE
NC State's roster has certainly been constructed from inside-out. If you look at the Pack's projected starters, the Wolfpack returns five offensive linemen with starting experience and all four defensive linemen. The defensive line group in particular has played a lot of football, and that experience has led to a maturity and motivation you don't always see.

"Well the good thing is is those guys are intrinsically motivated," Doeren said of his defensive line. "I mean they really push themselves. They're hard on themselves. Coach Patrick sets the culture in that room, and Coach Nielson before him did a great job creating it.

"Those guys understand what it takes to be good. They also understand if you don't do it that you're going to look bad on film. So for me it's just making sure they're consistent, and their attitude and their effort every day, which they've been great about."

That experience and talent in the trenches is what Doeren hopes will be a staple of his program.

"I think if you're soft in the middle either side of the line of scrimmage, it's tough," he said. "It's really hard to play quarterback if your center's getting knocked into you all day long, you know what I mean? So I love being strong from the inside out on both sides of the football."

WHICH BACKS WILL PLAY?
NC State entered spring practice needing to replace Matt Dayes, but also with projected starter Reggie Gallaspy dinged up. Redshirt sophomore Johnny Frasier left the team during the spring, and Dakwa Nichols has been banged up as well as Jaylen Samuels, who will see time at the position in 2017.
Who will play on Saturday?
"Well that's kind of what we're going through today," Doeren said of the coaches meeting to determine the spring game script. "If we don't tackle, we're able to play those guys a little bit more. So Reggie, you probably will not see, just because he's the one that's furthest behind at being full speed, but Jay Sam's full speed. Nyheim, Jay Sam... you'll see Reggie maybe in some of the passing situations that we're doing and two minute drill and things like that."

Gallaspy, who rushed for 234 yards and two scores in 2016 while averaging 4.78 yards per carry, has been limited with a knee injury. "He just had a meniscus be repaired," Doeren said. "He has taken awhile and just the quad atrophy that sometimes comes with that, in that position, we don't want to put him in a tough spot."
With that being said, Gallaspy, and others, will have a huge opportunity this year. All-ACC tailback Matthew Dayes is headed to the NFL, and Dayes had a heavy, heavy workload that will yield touches for multiple players.
"With Matt's absence, that's 270 touches Matt Dayes had," said Doeren. "Nyheim Hines, aylen Samuels, Reggie Velaspie, and when we get Dakwa Nichols back, and then obviously the receiving core... there's a lot of kids who need to take those touches away."

PARTING SHOTS
According to Doeren, there are no other projected starters expected to be sidelined due to injury in the spring game. However, he added young guys, such as redshirt freshman lineman Kendall Brown, will be sidelined.

* The 2017 Kay Yow Spring Game is set for 1:00 pm on Saturday. "

21-31, 61.5% is pretty comparable to Niklas Sade's first two years at State FWIW...(24-39, 61.5%). obviously that number needs some context (distance, mostly) and there's a disparity in number of attempts. but that isn't really bad necessarily. it's just not fantastic either.
