Dave Doeren met remotely with members of the media on Tuesday to provide an update on NC State’s fall camp and discuss the general chaos within college football, as well as the decisions made by the Big Ten and Pac-12. Inside Pack Sports has a full transcript.

Doeren says camp has gone well so far, though they are moving slowly in ramping up workouts with contact—he pumped the brakes on the practice schedule for this week over the weekend when the season looked like it was heading for cancellation.

He’s been happy with the environment around the Murphy Center, safety-wise:

Our protocols, day in and day out, have done really well. The testing, the mask wearing, the cleanliness, the spacing, the way we’re using our meeting rooms and spacing guys out, the way we’re doing our practices and splitting the team when we can in different groups, keeping the numbers small, and educating them on the things outside of this building because obviously here it’s very safe for them. They’ve done an outstanding job, the players and the staff alike.

There’s at least one advantage to having all your facilities off-campus: you’re extra-isolated.

Oh, and there is some actual football-specific stuff in there, with Doeren highlighting some of the players who have impressed him early on.
