Out of curiosity I looked at stub hub, $105 a ticket for upper endzone seats. Assuming they will drop significantly?

NC State is a good team with a lot of starters returning from last season. Our offense appears to be in pretty good shape, but we are going to have a lot of question marks on defense.

Our openers are (almost) always ugly.

Last time we opened with NC State, we won by a score of 7-3.

Considering you could probably get better seats outside the stadium for much less they are very overpriced.

Not to trash NC STate..........but people are acting like they are sleeper bc they gave Clemson a "game". You realize it's Clemson, a school that so routinely loses a dip shit game to an ACC also ran that people created a term for it "Clemsoning". Their best win was to unranked UNC team, after they had a moral victory against Clemson they turned around and made sure Lamar Jackson won the Heisman the next game. If we loose to NC State it's not bc they are a dark horse in ACC (lets be Real its FSU Clemson and possibly the U no one else has realistic shot), it's bc we are bad football team or we still can't play SEC level D. WE have one the Best young Qbs in all of CFB, having a qb gives u shot against anyone in CFB. Bentley and the talent at RB/WR/TE should give us enough to outscore teams like NCST.

For a game that likely won't even come close to selling out, over $100 is pretty steep.

I think we will win but it sure would be nice to play an easy FCS school as an opener every year.

The problem is an NC State fan could writeup a post very, very similar to this (by only changing the names of the teams) & make an equally strong case.. Louisville beat FSU worst than they beat NC State & UNC beat FSU so you can't draw many conclusions based on one or two games.

Reality is we finished with a 6-7 record & NC State returns a ton of players from a 7-6 team. They are not great, but they are stout upfront, with a good QB & are plenty capable of beating us as we are of beating them. If we beat them badly I'd be shocked as would the oddsmakers. I'd take a one point victory right now & be extremely happy.

I'll turn it back on you. We return a lot of players also, including 10 starters on Offense. And we had really young players with more room for growth. For instance, NC State has a 5th year starter at QB, so he is pretty close to a finished product. Bentley has played/started 7 games in his career and has tremendous room for improvement.

Default Re: Picked to lose 1st game of the year

So what's your point? Do you see us blowing them out? Then again you absolutely insisted for several years that our recruiting had not fallen off, despite all evidence to the contrary. Every year, like clockwork, you'd write about how loaded we were & how clemson was going over a cliff. You do seem to now be a little more logical. Maybe 7 wins, 3 wins, & 6 wins & massive numbers of guys you hyped as young talent transferring out finally beat some sense into your head. Muschamp took over a team with very subpar talent, that is a fact. Look at the NFL draft the last few years, all conference players, etc. It's going to take a few more good classes to right a ship & get back to where we were in 2010-2013. But I truly believe he's the right fit.

My prediction is this will be a close game, hopefully we pull it out at the end but it will not be easy. The oddsmakers feel it will be close too so I'm certainly not alone. We can have a good year with a team that is potentially fun to watch, but all the issues Muschamp inherited haven't magically disappeared overnight. Until that time comes I won't be looking down my nose at opponents who've posted a better record over the past few years than us.

BTW ESPN has an early formula for projected wins/losses that includes fractions. Right now they have our win total at 6.1 essentially a 6-6 season. I think we'll do better. But saying 7-8 wins is closer to optimistic or overly optimistic than negativity is in-fact correct based on their projections despite what you or Senior Rooster say.

Huge bellweather game to assess Coach Boom's ability to plan and execute. With evenly matched teams, and us having a very good QB, he can prove his worth if we look organized and efficient. I'm looking at this game with a discerning eye.

That's a very fair assessment. I'm ok with some deficiencies in talent (DL, secondary, etc) WM doesn't own that at this point. But you hit the nail on the head, we should see a team, especially on offense, that is more organized & operates more efficiently.

This surprises me after all the talk about Roper's
predictable and vanilla offense last season.

Don't underestimate NC State
