Maybe possibly. There still isn’t much to update on the eligibility situations of Omer Yurtseven and Ted Kapita, unfortunately. The best Mark Gottfried could offer at ACC media day on Wednesday was a potential timetable for a decision on Yurtseven. NC State head coach Mark Gottfried told media that Wolfpack maybe hears from NCAA within a week on Omer Yurtseven (emphasis...

Darian Roseboro Shaking Up NC State Depth Chart

NC State released their depth chart for the Boston College game yesterday, and everything was the same except for one addition of the word OR.

Matt Dayes injury: NC State RB held out despite being cleared to return again Louisville

Matt Dayes is fine, everybody. NC State running back Matt Dayes missed the majority of his team’s blowout loss to Louisville on Saturday, but not because he suffered a significant injury.

NC State kicker misses three FGs, including potential game-winner

Kicking isn’t easy, especially at the college level where stellar kickers are a rare breed. The amount of scorn poor kickers can receive when they are off makes them often times into a man on an island. Kyle Bambard knows this pressures all too well, as he had a chance to put the game away for North Carolina State against Clemson. Though the kick that will get a lot of play...
