    It starts with VT on Saturday. I haven't seen much of VT this year so I am not sure what to expect. Hope Lo is back at full speed. He seemed a bit tentative at Clemson. If so, and if everyone has a good game at home, I would hope for a comfortable win.

    I wouldn't go as far as to say it WON'T happen. Every game is different. That last game we built a 28 point lead, then watched it dwindle down to 5. Next time we play, they could do the same to us. Or it could be tight throughout the game. Who knows what will happen?

    I'm not predicting a win. Just saying it is winnable.

    I hope we win them all. The tourny is important and I would love to see State win it. But first, I would like to have that NCAA bid wrapped up without the ACC tourny.

    Since this topic was started by Hal, it should be easy to understand.

    How can ANYONE watch the way this team played on Sunday and conclude they are certain to win the remaining games?

    TBK ,we are NOT going to win at Carolina. We had them up 28, at home, in the second half. Ran out of gas and let them get to within 5. AT HOME. Where we've been playing like world-beaters. On the road, we don't act like we want to leave the bus. Get real.

    We DO have the talent to win in CH, IMHO. But, we won't. We don't play with fire and determination on the road, plain and simple. And, I would L O V E to eat my words if I'm wrong.

    No wins are certain.

    But on paper, State has a vast majority of "easy" games remaining. The only team currently in the top-6 of the conference that is left on our schedule is the one game at Carolina. That is also a very winnable game, even if it will be a tough out for the Pack.

    One thing's for sure, if we don't win enough of our remaining games to climb into the top four of the conference, we only have ourselves to blame.

    ^^^^Totally agree with you,the rest of the remaining games are going to be fun to watch and heated !

    It's a tough slog any way one looks at the schedule. I would not expect either NC State nor UNC to win out in either of their remaining schedules. It's just too difficult to do. I would be very surprised if U of Miami can go undefeated in the remaining games. They're good but this is the ACC and every game is tough.

    unc on the other hand has finished the easy part of their schedule and now come the real meat. Each game favors their opposition.
