NC State's road trip to Wake Forest is set for noon ET, which is both mildly concerning and then after five minutes of thinking about it completely horrifying. The Wolfpack is on a two-game losing streak and has not won at Wake Forest since my undergrad years, which was a long, long time ago.
Winston-Salem has become this weird mental block for Woflpack football, though without doubt Wake Forest had the better team on several occasions. My first experience in Winston-Salem was 2003--Philip Rivers' final year and Mario Williams' first--and it was dreadful. The last time I went, Daniel Evans was playing quarterback, and the result was no better.
State hasn't won there since 2001 and that's a string of events without an underlying connection, and history is irrelevant, and there is no such thing as momentum. But as a counter-point, oh sweet football not Winston-Salem, not now! Not now. Now is not the right time. Can we have a few more weeks?
