yes hello welcome back to football

It’s been a while, but here we are, waiting impatiently for what is easily the biggest game NC State has played on a football field in a long, long time. I’ve been enjoying this winning streak as much as anybody else over the last couple months, but now? Now laughing time is over. (At least for a short while.)

Laughing time shall resume, but for today at least, there’s serious business at hand. This is a gravy game—it does not factor into the ACC standings, and NC State will hold first place in the Atlantic no matter what happens—but man, I’d like to have this one. I’d like to have it a lot.

So if you need me, I’ll probably be twirling in circles in an effort to burn off nervous energy before kickoff. Feels good to be here, though, man, feels good. If you’d like to discuss anything else that happens on Saturday, feel free to do that here. We’ll see you at 3:30 on NBC. Happy Saturday.
