Red Tops White, 20-10

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

NC State ran 131 plays during the spring game Saturday, though it took a while for any of those plays to amount in touchdowns. I was not able to catch the game today so it seems I was spared what sounds like a pretty boring first half. But Dave Doeren did get the opportunity to show us the sort of pace he's aiming for once the regular season rolls around. Clearly there's still much adjusting to be done.

"Offensively there are a lot of new guys in the lineup," said Doeren. "The plays are not that much different, but the names of the plays and the tempo are a lot different. I think that's the biggest thing. We are ahead defensively and that's not a bad thing."

Pete Thomas was more efficient than his counterparts, completing 15 of 26 passes for 168 yards and zero interceptions. Jacoby Brissett got some reps behind Thomas and Stocker, finishing the day 4-10 for 59 yards and a touchdown. It will be interesting to see how he and Stocker compare in 2014 after they've each had a year to assimilate Doeren's offense.
