TOB Will Go On This Road Trip But He Doesn't Have To Like It

Via BC Interruption comes this note from Ivan Maisel:

North Carolina State coach Tom O’Brien sent a not-so-subtle message to the ACC office in his press conference when he pointed out that the Wolfpack will "for the fifth time go on the road for an (ACC) opener." NC State opens its league schedule Saturday at Wake Forest. In O’Brien’s five seasons in Raleigh, no other team in the league has opened ACC play every season on the road. By the way, in 2006, the last time the Wolfpack played their first league game at home, they played Boston College, coached by…Tom O’Brien.

I'm having a hard time keeping track of all of TOB's schedule-related restrictions.

-- Carolina can't be the last team on the schedule because they're in the other division and the teams could meet again in the ACC title game the very next week. (Good one, coach.)

-- Under no circumstances should a school whose name begins with the letter E be scheduled right before a school whose name begins with the letter I, except after Clemson.

-- Don't make the first conference game a road game for five straight years. This one seems reasonable, actually.
