    I've been traveling the large majority of the last two weeks, so apologies on this being late , but - hey - that's what happens when your employer moves to a "use it or lose it" PTO model. My sincere apologies, my fellow BTPers.

    Nov 4, 2018 | Backing The Pack

    Wake Forest has been killed by injuries this season, which goes a long way toward explaining why the Deacs have fallen off so badly. The latest is the worst of it for them-starting quarterback is done for the rest of the year after suffering a leg injury during the team's loss to Syracuse on Saturday.

  5. WBB: Another Slap in the FaceRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 28, 2018 | Backing The Pack

    This is how State has finished in the conference over the last five years compared to how the ACC coaches picked State to finish: 2013-14: Predicted 10th ... Finished 4th 2014-15: Predicted 9th ... Finished T9th 2015-16: Predicted 9th... Finished T6th 2016-17: Predicted 7th ... Finished T4th 2017-18: Predicted 10th ... Finished T4th Notice a trend there? It is called getting no respect especially last season. The 2013-14 season was a surprise and one cannot disparage the coaches for thinking that State would finish no better than 10th due to how the team finished in the seasons just prior to that and in view of State having a new coach.

  6. NC State and the rest of the ACC at the midway pointRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 12, 2018 | Backing The Pack

    We're about as close to the halfway point in the regular season as you can get with all teams having played either five or six games, so now seems like a good time to take a look an inventory of what's happened so far... through the eyes of some advanced metrics! Taking a look at how the teams have progressed week-by-week in the eyes of both the F/+ and Sagarin rankings tells a good story, and one that's pretty well reflected in the ol' Eye Test, too. With an eye on the above data, teams can start to be dropped into a few broad buckets and also some groupings/tiers.

    Jun 29, 2018 | Backing The Pack

    Last weekend I had a gander at the overall recruiting progress that Dave Doeren has made since becoming the head coach at NC State, and now I'm going to have a look-see at where his recruits are coming from. Every college staff has its recruiting go-tos, whether they be certain states, regions, or high schools.

    May 13, 2018 | Backing The Pack

    The NC State Wolfpack have rebounded quite nicely, winning 8 straight games after fumbling through the rough patch from a couple weeks ago. This has not only clinched a top-4 seed in Durham and placed the Pack 9 on solid footing to make a run at the ACC Championship, but also put the team in fantastic position to host a regional...and maybe more.

  15. McLain triple helps Pack complete sweep of Wake ForestRead the original story w/Photo

    May 13, 2018 | Backing The Pack

    Fittingly on his senior day, Josh McLain put away the final out on a liner to center to cap NC State's sweep of Wake Forest. McLain, who spurned the Los Angeles Dodgers to return to Raleigh for his senior campaign, filled the box score with two runs scored, a two-run triple, a sac fly, a stolen base, and he was hit by a pitch for good measure.

    Apr 6, 2018 | Backing The Pack

    It's kind of impressive that a team that's likely to win 40+ games, finish with at least a .500 record in the ACC, and probably end up as at least a 2-seed in a NCAA regional seems like a letdown. Yet, here is 2018 Louisville.
