    Duly noted, but my point is we will be better this time and we are still underdog to them. When we beat them we will have beaten a good football team that's why we are the underdog. We can't put NC State at the same level as Wake Forest (no offense Wake) and believe this game is not a real test. State should have beaten Clemson last year at Clemson and that same Clemson team mocked us.

    I don't feel very good about the opener. Their strength is their defensive line. We haven't blocked anyone since 2014. That's a bad matchup considering the offense is supposed to carry the defense early on.

    N.C. State is a second-tier ACC team, behind the real big dogs in that conference. Losing to them would be grievous.

    In all honesty King we ain't at the stage to call anyone else second-tier yet. Let's don't go getting on our high horse against any team.They finished last year with a 41-17 win over Vandy whom we barely beat and Vandy beat Jawga at Sanford. I know one of the guys on the strength and conditioning staff there and they will be ready. We will win the game I believe but it ain't going to be easy.

    In case you haven't noticed second tier ACC is every bit as good as second tier SEC these days.

    I have noticed. But I've also noticed that we engage in the facilities wars more than they do. That should mean something in the personnel wars. We should beat them like a drum.

    Methinks you will be disappointed if you expect to "beat them like a drum". Not happening.

    Pretty sure they were within 1 missed field goal of beating the national champions last year.

    That's what I'm saying! It's NC
    freakin State! We're a bad match up for them.

    They don't have our offensive weapons. We should handle them with authority.

    They are like that bird that gives out its cry only once - and then dies.

    I hope the Gamecock football team is not relying on analysis of NC State's team by some over confidenced garnet glassed forum members to give them a win. If they are, we are in for a bad day in the queen city.
