On my blog, I've begun my preview for NC State, diving into a position-by-position breakdown of the Wolfpack. Yesterday was Offensive and Defensive Line, today is Linebackers and Wide Receivers. here's the link
I think the Wolfpack are the eighth best team in the ACC. Besides Russell Wilson and the wideout corps, there is really nothing for Tom O'Brien to boast about. There is potential for the Wolfpack to play spoiler to some teams' seasons, and it helps that the Atlantic Division pretty much stinks besides Florida State. Still, the defense is so questionable that it's hard to see NC State challenging for the conference this year, making O'Brien's seat even hotter under new AD Debbie Yow.
