RALEIGH — After what happened to North Carolina, N.C. State feels much better about its win over Ohio, and the 1-0 Pack needs all of the confidence they can muster heading into this Saturday's game with Florida State.
N.C. State has analyzed the tape of its three-point win over Ohio, and there are plenty of things to correct but at least after game one, there is a foundation to build upon as opposed to the uncertainty prior to an opening game.
"We're just very fortunate to play the first ballgame, come out of it with a win and be able to get into the second ballgame and learn some things about your football team," explained NCSU Coach, Mike O'Cain. "And then hopefully, you're able to see the next team on film and know a little bit about them."
Coach O'Cain doesn't really need to see any film on Florida State. This year's bunch of Seminoles are just a rerun of years past.
"They don't look a bit different," O'Cain said. "In 1993, when I became the head coach, they were the same. They have changed a few little wrinkles. The personnel, the names have changed, the faces have changed, but they all look alike. It's amazing how good they are."
Neither of the NCSU teams showed all in game one. You know the 'Noles have plenty more for display, but the Pack may not have a way to disrupt them.
