    I hear ya, Toddler, but the only year State had double digit wins was when Rivers was under center. He had some good years with the Bolts, but the past few years haven't been good. Maybe with a coaching change he can return to his glory days. There was a time that Rivers was considered a top tier QB (at least by the so-called "experts" on ESPN, anyway).

    Was State 4th best in the ACC the year State played in the Gator Bowl? If so, the ACC was a lot better then than now, which is possible.

  • Toddler10-21 Jan 2, 4:05 a.m.

    Wow Rivers sure won alot at N.C. State. 4th place in the ACC is best he could do. Rivers makes the all hype team. Over 40 turnovers in a year in a half. Great QB?

    Rivers and Wilson are hard acts to follow for sure. Glennon impressed me with the way he kept his cool in late game situations, like the FSU game this year. He was also pretty good at third down conversions IMHO.

  • tayled Jan 1, 7:00 a.m.

    I have to sadly agree with a lot of folks here who say that Glennon really hurt his NFL chances in this game. He's a bright young man and he does have a good degree. He will get drafted, or picked up, and will make more than I will ever see in my lifetime, but I predict he will be a journeyman player, playing 3-4 seasons for 3-4 different teams and that is about it. He has no mobility, and often makes bad reads. He buckles under pressure and he will see that day in and day out at the next level, and faster than the college game.

  • Toddler10-21 Jan 1, 4:22 a.m.

    Thanks Glennon, and Im glad you are leaving. He just stands there like the defense doesnt see him. You got good blocking today. If he is the best or second best QB in the draft it must be a mighty weak QB draft. TOB gave up RW for this guy? I would have taken my chance with RW. If he wanted to transfer, will bye help you.

    I agree.. Just a large target that practically stands there like a big dufface. He is going to be lucky if the NFL will pick him up in the second round. They already have plenty of those types on the payroll. IMO..he helped TOB become unemployed..

    — Posted by davidecu

    I think I have a better chance at winning the powerball than him going first round with that performance.

    I am glad he is gone. I never was confident with his performance. While he had an arm, he wasn't a play maker. We need someone with the likes of Rivers or Wilson in as a QB.

  • sbeagler223 Jan 1, 12:10 a.m.

    Yow stated her goals were to make the football program a consistent top 25 program. But really you should accept that only as a start. Their has been years past where state creeped into the top 10 though long ago, also many ACC schools have been there. Clemson GT Maryland FSU all have won National Titles.Never limit yourself shoot for your best, live and learn, turn the ACC around dont settle for second best.You cant be a cheap skate hiring coaches.Fans are tired of mediocrity and wanted a NFL caliber coach. I hope I am wrong but the sinking ship still has a gaping hole with Yow's goals of mediocrity.You need to fix this quick or you will be looking at empty seats. Todays game was an example of gross incompetence, and It showed in a humiliating way. Thank God Clemson, and Georgia Tech made the ACC proud.

    Tell ya, Smitty, the thing that irritates the h3ll out of me with football is the coaching garbage that seems to occur every bowl season.

    Glennon didn't have a coach to calm him down today. He was like a deer in the lights. He slipped down to the 2nd round after today. I hate it for him too. No coaching. No one to talk to him. He didn't even have the head set on in the 2nd half. Dismal coaching. They all wanted to go home after the 3rd quarter. Earl Wolff was one of a few that never gave up.

    It proves that NC State isn't all that much in recruiting solid athletes in football. TOB was doing the best he could do based upon his personality. Glennon didn't have his best game. He needed someone to calm him down after his int's. He didn't have this. He won games for State. He will improve after today. I wouldn't put him in the 2nd round after today. No coaching today for State. Sorry. Bible was over his head.

  • gevalia Dec 31, 9:01 p.m.

    Actually, the offensive line gave Glennon fairly good protection. As I have said for 2 years he is an LST (Large Stationary Target) and this will limit his playing in the NFL. Maybe coaching will make a difference, but that will not improve his foot speed.
    This game just goes to be further proof why we needed to make a coaching change. Even I could anticipate what we would do next!
    And special teams play, awful for 5 years and yes, we had a runback for a TD but fumble..fumble....missed tackle ...missed tackle....missed tackle!! I still think a major cause of our problems is one and two star recruits.
    And penalties penalties penalties, many of them stupid "I'm tougher that you are" penalties. A good coach would have them on the bench within 30 seconds!
    It took me about 30 seconds to hit the "Delete" on my TVO.
