I think our defense will hold its own. Our offense will need to score 30+, preferably not too quickly.

They would need us to play pretty badly to lose. While that's certainly possible, I think NC State losing Hines, Samuel's, dline, etc is going to hurt them. Tigers roll big.

Just keep talking Pack, keep talking. I want to make sure the Tigers don’t overlook you.

If our defense executes against you, you wont execute.
Dumb statement by Finley.

Honestly, I wouldn't want a QB that DIDN'T think the outcome wasn't on him and his teammates' ability to do what they do. I respect Finley's belief that he and his boys have a chance.

I don't agree with the conclusion, but I'll allow him to have hope.

As I read somewhere else today, it'll be an execution alright.


Second Half of our season gonna be a little different from the first half.




No matter how good a spin they put on it,2 QB's always causes a little division on a team. With KB just quitting on them and what happened in the Cuse game, this team is one unit now,ready for what's in front of them.More ready than any Dabo team has been.

I dont think a senior QB will be intimidated by anyone but that doesnt mean mean he wont be trying to execute from his backside. If if he get some throws off, just keep getting to him, ala Mond. He may have gotten the ball off but he knew we were there most of the night. Dont think Finley will be as lucky as Mond was.

Isn’t this sort of like saying if we score more points than them we’ll win.

Absolutely he should fully believe this to be the case. In the NCSU locker room they should have no doubt who will win the game. BUT as a senior should know when to speak and when to remain silent. Now I don’t know what question he was asked but it is probably best not to give the Tigers extra motivation.

He's not wrong! Of course, they'll have to execute in all 3 phases, not just offense.

He is saying the same thing Clemson fans say every week. That is a quote that is taken out of context.

My fear is that they'll try to take out TL like they did WG couple years ago. Maybe that's the kind of execution he's referring to.

I don't think that's what Finley is talking about, but Doeren is filthy, dirty like that!

As others have said, I would expect him to believe it. I would not think much of him if he didn't believe it. I would also keep that to myself or between only my teammates and coaches.

Post Re: NC State QB: "If we execute, we'll beat Clemson"

Here are NC State's results thus far ....

NC STATE
Date Opponent
Sept. 1 JAMES MADISON ..................................W, 24-13
Sept. 8 GEORGIA STATE ......................................W, 41-7
Sept. 15 WEST VIRGINIA ....................................canceled
Sept. 22 at Marshall.......................................... .....W, 37-20
Sept. 29 VIRGINIA ..............................................W, 35-21
Oct. 6 BOSTON COLLEGE .................................W, 28-23

Four of their 5 games have been played at home. They are averaging 33 points per game. They are giving up 16.8 points per game. Their strongest opponent thus far, BC, had their best RB out for the game. Of course, I think I said the same thing about Syracuse last year ..... but that was an Away game with our starter out of the game at half time.

I think they will be physical. We need to pressure Finley. Hopefully, our defense is considerably better than Marshall, JMU, Georgia State, UVA and BC. I'm pretty confident our offense is better than anything they have faced.

I wouldn't actually pressure him that much. They rely on a quick passing game. You have to disrupt the routes. I would play more press on the outside and vary the looks with the linebackers/DL. The pressure I would bring would be delayed or different zone blitzes.
