Bentley will will us to a win like he almost did in the bowl game. This is no easy game but none of them ever are.

it's going to take a few years folks. I just hope the defense turns around while Bentley is still here. Otherwise as normal we will have one side of the ball better than the other.
Before I die, I want to see a South Carolina team that is not one sided.

We'll look back at 2017 and I think NC State will be one of the 6 best teams we played for sure. Maybe one of the 4 best. Florida, Clemson and Georgia will be better than them. Maybe Texas A&M or Arkansas also. But I dont see anyone else being better than them.

We could very well lose this game....but still finish over .500 and win a bowl.
Id love to see us beat Texas A&M so sick of those narcs.

They are a hard team to figure, though. They were 7-6 and should have beat Clemson, then lost to Louisville 54-13 the next week. They also lost to East Carolina (who we beat) and Boston College. Up and down. Unless whey are playing their best, we will win.

And then add in that it is the first game, when strange things happen and you don't see the real teams.
Unless their other QB graduated, they ran a 2 QB system last year if I recall correctly. Had a pro style guy and a guy they would bring in that could run and throw.

Not really a two QB system, their primary guy is the grad transfer from Boise, Ryan Finley. He played two years at Boise and RSed, graduated in three years, so he has another year of eligibility and will be their main guy.

Jalan McClendon is the Dual Threat guy but he was not used that much, had 176 yards passing and 145 rushing on the season, did not play in several games. Sounds like more of the occasional change of pace guy, kinda like we used Pharoh as a Wildcat.

He did play more in some of their games, like Notre Dame when he played the second half in a monsoon that limited the passing game - he had more tha 1/3 of his rushing yards in that one.

But I don't expect to see him a lot unless Finley is ineffective or hurt.

We never play well in our opening game. A few dumb mistakes; dropped balls, fumbles, missed assignments and stupid penalties and State could be up by 21 at the half.

But, you never know.

It's the first game of the season, so we will win an barely-watchable slog of a game by 4 points

Nobody plays well in the first game, and we have taken care of the North Carolina schools in first games because they had as much or more suckage.

It's funny how many people are saying NCS is going to be so good. When's the last time they were really good? I'm not talking 8-9 wins good, beating up on the weak lower half of the ACC, but really a good team that was ranked in the top 15?

If USC loses this game it will be because we played poorly. USC is the better team, no doubt.

I have a news flash for everyone. This won't be the only game we're picked to lose this year.

Ill be in The Queen City that Saturday. I think our key to get it going is to give them the ball first and see at least a little of what they're going to try and bring to the table. For Carolina I test my offensive line right off the bat and get that running game going. If it is successful and with the quality of backs and quality I'd run the mess out of it. When they least expect it I'd change the play and hit Hayden, Edwards, Deebo, Otre, or Shi Smith with a long ball. Just MO
