NC State: New QB and New Look, But Will There Be New Results?

Last season is one State fans want to forget.  Under head coach Dave Doeren’s first year with NC State, the Wolfpack had one of its worst seasons in school history, finishing with a 3-9 record, and not winning a single conference game.  No one expected to be in contention for a conference title, but certainly no one expected to go through the conference schedule winless. One...

Brissett impresses in NC State's spring game

The old saying goes that if you have two No. 1 quarterbacks, you really have none. That's not entirely fair, obviously, as some two-quarterback systems have worked quite nicely. But at NC State this coming season, the Wolfpack have one thing they didn't have last year - a clear No. 1 starter in Florida transfer Jacoby Brissett. It will be quite a departure from last year...
