NC State QB Brissett ready to chase expectations

When it comes to expectations, NC State's No. 12 has a ton.

"I hope we are good," said Wolfpack quarterback Jacoby Brissett. "I am just going to go out there and do my best."

Brissett will be the starting quarterback at NC State this season. He spent last year sitting out after transferring to Raleigh from the University of Florida.

"It was a tough season in general, to be around and see things go the way they shouldn't have," said Brissett. "It was tough to watch."

As Brissett watched his team fail to win a conference game, Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren consistently made reference to the future when he could give the keys to the highly thought of transfer.

"It's been three years since I played a full season. I can't wait to get out there and take that first hit and get it out of the way," said Brissett.

Unable to play last season, Brissett ran the scout team for NC State.

"Being able to just learn the offense. Sit back and not go out there and make those first year mistakes," Brissett said.

Because of NCAA rules, he wasn't allowed to travel with the team for road games, so the quarterback paid his own way and drove himself.

"It was a great opportunity for the players to see I bought into the process of being part of the team," said Brissett. "Even though I couldn't play, I still was part of the team, win or lose."

[Dave Doeren] presented a great opportunity to come to a place that was losing a senior quarterback. It was a great fit."

And now, after a year of waiting, Brissett gets a chance to prove it.

    tell us again, how true fans are supposed to be "upset" after winning their NON conference games???

    btw- next season, Alabama's NON conference slate looks like this-

    WVU (good game there)
    Florida Atlantic (who knew they even had a team?)
    Southern Miss (mid-major)
    and the always tough out- Western Carolina

    You must excuse SACy. He thinks anyone that can acknowledge reality must be a UNC fan. UNC haunts his very existence.

    After years of having a cupcake non-conference schedule, the Pack Faithful have become delusional at the start of every season...
    For the record I am not a UNC guy or even an ACC guy. When you are ready to play a BIG team...schedule it.

    yeah... going 4-0 should truly make REAL FANS sad.

    Hopefully, there will not be injuries in the Spring practice. Good luck Pack.

  • TeaBagOnLove Apr 8, 2014

    The Pack should roll through their first four games with little effort and be 4-0. Then it gets real and they need to have the leadership that has been lacking at the QB position since Wilson left. Glennon did the best that he could with what weapons he had, but Russell really turn shyt into sunshine with his ability to make big plays out of nothing.

    The verdict is out on this squad and I am sure after they start 4-0 the Pack Faithful will be just as excited as they were after the first 3 games on the 2013 Season.

    How did I know you'd be the first to post here? You're sad.

    We will get a view on Saturday at the spring game. It will take more than one person so it will be good to see how the rest of the team plays. There are a lot of new players this year since there were so few seniors last year. Go Pack!
