A couple of quick notes before returning to regularly scheduled Mick Cronin-related programming.
NC State conducted its first scrimmage this afternoon, and the quarterbacks struggled in difficult wind conditions:
Junior quarterbackwas 9-for-19 for 60 yards with one interception. , the redshirt freshman backup, was 6-for-14 for 24 yards with two interceptions.
Tobais Palmer led a wide receiving corps that O’Brien said needs to have leaders step forward. Palmer made three catches for 20 yards, and tight endadded two catches for 8 yards.
Both Russell Wilson and Kyle Parker were assigned to the Asheville Tourists, which is Colorado's single-A affiliate. So if you'd like to see Russell play this spring, you'll have plenty of opportunities, as the Tourists will be all over North Carolina. Wilson is expected to be the team's starting second baseman. Their season begins on April 7th in Hickory.
