Today’s Schedule for ACC Games: January 27, 2014

Here are the meaningful games in the Atlantic Coast Conference today (January 27, 2014):

Men’s Basketball:

#18 Duke (16-4, 5-2) @ #20 Pittsburgh (18-2, 6-1).  7:00 pm.

Notes: The ACC did not do Duke any favors with this schedule.  First, a trip to Pittsburgh, one of the most difficult road environments in all of college basketball.  Second, Duke has a looming trip to the Carrier Dome to face Syracuse and its 35,000+ fans.  And both teams have better records than Duke right now.

Notes: It is never too early for these teams to realize that they are squarely on the wrong side of the bubble.  It is win now or shoot for the NIT.

Clemson (13-5, 4-2) @ North Carolina (11-7, 1-4).  6:00 pm.

Notes: Did anyone expect the 13-5 team that is 4-2 in conference to be Clemson?

State of the Pack: QBs and more

There was an interesting email in my box yesterday from our own administrator Anthony Caffery (aka Commander Caffrey). It referenced the possibility of Drew Allen, Oklahoma backup, transferring to State. Unfortunately the article he directed me to seemed to indicate that Allen is leaning toward Syracuse.  Here’s the link:

Since as the article states he will be eligible immediately following any transfer that makes him a player in the mix for us if he decides to come to State.  Which begs the question: what does the QB situation look like for the Pack in 2013?
The two leading candidates to start are Colorado transfer Pete Thomas and soph Manny Stocker.  Thomas seems to have a slight edge right now and is getting more first-team snaps. Coach Doeren told the Charlotte Observer that he wanted to go with the guy who makes the fewest mistakes. Link is here:
Of course we will continue to look at the QB and other positions on the Wolfpack roster as the spring and summer progress.  New coaches and coordinators, new season coming…I am starting to yearn for fall.  At least the part after the less-than-ambitious non-conference schedule.
Here are a few items about other Pack teams:
Basketball:
The 2013-14 edition of the Wolfpack will not look much like this season’s, and perhaps that is a good thing.  But TJ Warren says he will stay, and he was one of the brighter spots on the Cardiac DOA Pack.
On the women’s side, former Pack assistant Wes Moore was hired as the new HC.  Moore comes from UT Chattanooga with an impressive career winning percentage of .767 and 16 trips to the Big Dance, so it seems the ladies are in good hands.
Baseball:  Finally, a quick baseball update. I admit to not really following college baseball until CWS time, but now that we are “in-between” the two attention-grabbing sports, why not take a peek?
Happy to report that the Pack is fine, ranked #25 and coming off a 14-inning win over #30 Virginia Tech.  As a matter of fact, the ACC is fine with the following Top 30 teams:  UNC #1, Virginia #6, Florida State #7, Georgia Tech #16, and as stated already, the Wolfpack at #25 and the Hokies at #30. As for the Futures, we have Louisville at #14 and Notre Dame at #24.
