    What an utter embarrassment for the projected 2014 CWS winners!

    Duke 2 (just an overall good performance by Duke)
    State 0 (just unable to get anything going in this game)
    If State isn't careful they very well could drop 3 over at DBAP

    How embarrassing for our program when we were self proclaimed preseason CWS winners. ECU just kicked our ace so we are just as bad in baseball as football. So embarrassing to NCSU and us loyal fans.

    NC State, as of today, has a current conference record of 5-10 (.333) after the going 2-1 with the Clemson Tigers. NC State has shown they have a good team with several talented players, but can
    they gain enough momentum to get them into the playoffs? Odds are, at this point, it looks as if they'll miss the playoffs this year.

    State has 5 -3 games series left in the season against Duke, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Wake and Virginia Tech. My predictions are:

    Duke series, State goes 2-1 (may be able to go 3-0 with this series)
    BC series, State goes 3-0
    GT series, State goes 2-1
    Wake series, State goes 1-2
    VT series , State goes 2-1 ( may be able to go 3-0 in this series)

    I think State ends their season at 15-15 (.500) and misses the ACC playoffs along with ND, BC and VT.

    State has 5-3 game series remaining in conference play with Duke, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech. 15 games left to play now. I think State can take 10 wins and lose 5.

    Predictions:
    Duke series, State goes 2-1 BC series, State goes 3-0 GT series, State goes 2-1 Wake series, State goes 1-2 VT series, State goes 2-1

    State ends the season at 15-15 (.500) and misses the ACC playoffs this year along with ND, BC and VT. Maryland will probably go in as that #10 seed.
