The Wolfpack should, at minimum, expect another eight-win season. With a veteran team coming back, and playmakers on both sides of the ball, they should be in many more games in 2012. One area to watch develop throughout the season will be N.C. State’s pass-catching game. Only one tried and true veteran returns at receiver for the Wolfpack, and they will be missing the services of past playmakers T.J. Graham and tight end George Bryan.

NC State is No. 27 in the Orlando Sentinel's preseason countdown.

Might be foreshadowing a bit, but I can almost guarantee NCAA will make Rodney Purvis jump through some hoops before he plays 1st game.

What kinda hoops?

Turner said he’ll return to his natural position as a shortstop after spending his freshman year as the Wolfpack’s third baseman. That’s complicated a bit with the USA Baseball program because he has been used mostly as a second baseman. "They’re trying to get me to play second base," he said. "I kind of want to do both. I’ve heard all sorts of things (about projections for a position in a potential professional career)."

If there were any doubt, this confirms that Trea Turner will be NC State's shortstop next year.

Lisa Navas will not return in 2012-13 as head coach of the NC State’s softball program.

Not a huge surprise. Navas delivered an ACC title early in her tenure but hasn't been able to maintain an NCAA tournament-caliber program.

Crowder’s Facebook page lists as friends several prominent Carolina athletes, including star basketball alums Tyler Hansbrough, J.R. Reid and Sean May, and football alums Cameron Sexton and Mahlon Carey. She also listed as friends at least two former academic advisers to student athletes, and the former longtime secretary to the Carolina basketball program, Kay Thomas.

I took a class last year [he has not declared a major], and I am taking another this year. Maybe I'll use the language on a trip to Africa someday. There's no reason I chose Swahili other than that I thought it would be cool. I enjoy it.

Interesting that NC State will start Ethan Ogburn in game 1, save Carlos Rodon for his usual Saturday. Gotta win 2 anyway. Randall for Fla.

Ogburn goes on Saturday.

5. They can be offensive They are different leagues but with comparable talent. That’s what makes some of the N.C. State offensive stats stand out. The Wolfpack would rank first in the SEC in walks (261), runs (428) and doubles (147).
