NCSU vs. TENNESSEE

147 posts in this topic

Just wanted to touch base with any State fans to see what they think about this game. Other than Glennon and Amerson, I don't know a lot about their team.

Someone on Volnation did some trolliing, and posted a link to a State message board that was littered with fans proclaiming that they'd "blow out" Tennessee. One guy predicted 42-3. Much like the Panthers this season, the 42 part wouldn't surprise me, but if anyone can hold the Vols to just 3 points, they're probably a national title contender.

Its about the same for me, don't know much about Tenn aside from Bray and his drunken activities but I think it'll be a good game.

The talk is that this game is a must win for the program and for the ACC.

Being called a must-win for Dooley, too.

As for the Vols, I will say that they really have an unreal receiving corps. Then again, Bray is the QB so who knows if that will even matter. He is good but seems to have a passion for throwing into coverage. First year moving to 3-4 defense, but it's Sal Sunseri and I love him as a coach.

Carolina already got their victory against Tenn in the bowl game awhile back, so I wan't Tenn to destroy ncsu.

BTW I'm in no way a State hater. I grew up in Wilson as a State fan. Pops went to school there since we had season tix when I was a kid. Moved to Knoxville in 11th grade and then went to UT.

While I don't follow state closely, I still like to see them do well...just not when playing Tennessee.

Haha, I definitely don't see 42-3. I think we'll be a little better than last year, mostly because we're healthier and it took Glennon a few games to really get comfortable last season. As far as what to expect, it's not just Amerson, the whole secondary is loaded with talent. Both safeties, Wolff and Bishop, will play in the NFL. The D-line has good depth, linebackers are a concern though. Our offense will depen on Glennon being consistent and some receivers other than Tobias Palmer emerging. I think we can beat Tennessee, but I'd bet the game will be decided by less than a touchdown either way.

Nine days! I'm pretty stoked to get back into some football. I'm feeling more and more confident about this game as it gets closer. I'm sure that will change completely by kickoff.

Our offense should be pretty stout, and on defense, we're all really excited to see this guy in action. Stories from practice say that he's unbelievably fast for his size. He's known as The Green Mile, in Knoxville.

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
