To live is to be sad: Welcome to the NC State sports experience

If you happened to be new to NC State athletics this weekend, you got quite a lesson. The Wolfpack's odds of getting out of the Fort Worth Regional were low from the outset, but they improved substantially with Chance Shepard's game-turning home run on Saturday night. Those heroics ultimately led ...

One game between TCU and NC State for all the tournament-advancement marbles

Despite the Wolfpack's heroics on Saturday night, there was a good chance it would come to this. A Monday night showdown, with the winner moving on to the Super Regionals. TCU won twice Sunday to stave off elimination, including an 8-2 win over the Pack. You will find few teams better ...

TCU forces winner-take-all game Monday

It wasn't meant to be Sunday night in Forth Worth. For the second straight game, NC State got a ninth inning homer, but this time there was no drama. Logan Ratledge's bomb to left made the final a slightly less embarrassing 8-2, as TCU forced a decisive, winner-take-all regional final ...

Ft. Worth Regional Sunday open thread: TCU vs. Stony Brook, NC State vs. ???

Felt good to put those question marks in the title, man. Felt real good. If you happened to miss the craziness last night, Omega has you covered with the recap and highlights. I have been strutting around everywhere since I woke up this morning. Can't tell me nothin' right now. But ...

The shot heard round Fort Worth: Chance Shepard's ninth-inning homer puts Pack through to the regional finals

Travis Orwig was pretty good too. Everything is bigger in Texas, but TCU's soldout Lupton Stadium wasn't big enough to contain NC State's Chance Shepard, who took Frogs' all-American closer Riley Ferrell deep with two outs in the top of the ninth. The two-run shot put the Pack up 5-4 ...

Ft. Worth Regional Saturday: Sacred Heart vs. Stony Brook, NC State vs. TCU

Nyheim Hines offers a twist on the backflip catch

This is the summer of the backflip catch, thanks to Odell Beckham Jr., who during an NFL game last season reached out with a gloved hand covered with glue, pine tar, and heavens knows what else to make a pretty good football catch. Lots of dudes are trying to one-up that feat, ...

NC State advances to winners' bracket with 3-0 win over Stony Brook

Elliott Avent chose the calculated route for NC State's Fort Worth regional opener against Stony Brook. The Wolfpack opted to start Curt Britt, and save Brian Brown for Saturday. That move worked out spectacularly, as Britt and Will Gilbert combined to toss a six-hit shutout. The Pack defeated Stony Brook, ...

Ft. Worth Regional Friday open thread: NC State vs. Stony Brook, TCU vs. Sacred Heart

Elliott Avent is going to go with his usual strategy of holding out his best starting pitcher for Saturday, and will instead give the ball to Curt Britt. This opener against Stony Brook might be setting up as a committee game, but if Britt can go deep, that obviously would ...

Talkin' TCU baseball with Frogs O' War

For NC State to get through the Ft. Worth Regional, it is almost certainly going to have to beat TCU, so let's get to know the Horned Frogs better. I caught up with Frogs O' War contributor Marshall Weber to go over the (many) strengths and (few) weaknesses of TCU. ...

NC State football's win total in 2015: over 7.5, or under?

College football win total over/unders were released by 5 Dimes on Tuesday, giving us an early look at how the sharps are evaluating the field. NC State's over/under is set at 7.5, which I believe is a couple wins higher than the preseason O/U last year. Based on the moneylines, 5 Dimes ...

The #goacc Moment of the Week (5/27/2015)

The weekly in-depth look at the best (worst?) moments in ACC schadenfreude. Apologies for being a day late, the long weekend threw off my entire schedule - but that's no excuse, because #goacc waits for nobody y'all. And boy, do we have a insane set of entries for y'all to ...

A glance at the pitching staffs in the Ft. Worth Regional

On Monday we had a look at the offenses in the Ft. Worth Regional, and today we'll run through the pitching staffs to definitively prove that NC State is going to win this thing. Well, I tried, anyway. I failed, sure, but I thought it was worth a shot. The ...

Charlotte transfer Torin Dorn looking at NC State and three others

Guard Torin Dorn left the Charlotte 49ers program after their coaching change, and he quickly became the target of high-major programs, with good reason: he averaged 12 points per game last season and earned Conference USA Freshman of the Year honors. NC State is one of the schools with a ...

2015 Ft. Worth Regional: How NC State's offense compares to the competition

The Ft. Worth Regional features an interesting mix of offenses that get things done in different ways. NC State, for example, has more depth in the power department and doesn't steal a lot of bases. TCU runs a ton, and does it efficiently. Stony Brook compensates for a lack of ...

NC State headed to Ft. Worth as No. 2 seed in TCU's regional

NC State is back in the dance after missing out last season. The Wolfpack landed in the Ft. Worth Regional, where they are the No. 2 seed and host TCU is the No. 1. State will open the regional against third-seeded Stony Brook, while the Horned Frogs play fourth-seeded Sacred ...

Open thread! It's NC State vs. Florida State for the ACC baseball title

NC State is 13-3 over its last 16 games, solidifying not only an ACC tournament championship spot but an NCAA tournament bid as well. The Pack took its lumps, no doubtin' that; State didn't win its first one-run game until late April. But you can always count on this shit ...
