    My Wolfpack will be lucky to win 5 games.

    UNC has won 2 of the last 15 against GT in football so even if Swofford did manipulate the schedule this way, it obviously doesn't work. I would argue that if three of your first five games are at South Carolina, at Georgia Tech, and at Virginia Tech, then you probably deserve a bye in there somewhere.

    Carry on with the conspiracy theories though; they are certainly entertaining.

    The same way Swofford manages to give UNC a bye week before playing GT almost every year.

    Duke and NCCU play because its a community thing - good for Duke, good for Central, and good for Durham.

    It really is that simple.

    I know, right? Their first four games are home games, and five of their first six. They get a bye after two should-win games before their first conference game, which is a home game. They only leave the state twice and not until almost November for the first time. State fans should be ecstatic about that schedule.

    As for UNC not playing FSU and Clemson again, they're in different divisions, just like State won't be playing GT and VT again.

    I learned that during the OJ trial in '94(?). That was sad from a purely judicial standpoint. I'm not gonna bytch though; my attorney has dug me out a few times, although only for speeding, etc.

    You're probably right about Pistorius. These days, it's not so much a matter of innocence or guilt, as much as it is about hiring the best lawyer money can buy.

  • StunGunn Feb 26, 2013

    I don't remember having TWO byes in the past, but I do like the way it breaks up the season, giving the guys time to heal from injuries. I also like having Duke as the last game on the schedule, like the way it used to be.

    Attorneys defend their client(s) and nothing more. It's what they're paid to do. And if you are seeking justice, you won't find it in a courtroom. In six months you'll see Pistorius walk free and be shaking your head. You will see.

    Good news, I'll be at the game and would love to try those shoes on.

  • Toddler10-21 Feb 26, 2013

    Duke knows thats a easy win. If you keep playing a team one of these times they will give you a good game. State's non conference schedule is a easy one. UNC/SC matchup should be a good one. UNC not playing the two best in the conference Clemson/FSU has got to be a plus. They should win there division.

  • gtr Feb 25, 2013

    How did Swofford ever manage to saddle NCSU with a schedule in which they only have EIGHT home games and leave the state not once but TWO times (@FSU and @BC)?

  • sburks1906 Feb 25, 2013

    I know the ACC schedule will become a helluva lot harder when Louisville comes aboard in 2014. Maryland can't leave soon enough...

    Well 1st off I used to live in that crudhole, second, if I did go,I would have on jeans and a tee, and it would be beer, third, have you ever noticed how Carolina always has the last laugh? Wouldn't just pencil in USC just yet. As a matter a fact, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Carolina won that game.

    Save the Wal-Mart comebacks for someone else dude, you wish you walked in my shoes.

    Will you be wearing a sweater vest, sipping on wine and having cheese? UNC may want to sit their starting QB out that night, cause something tells me he's going to get hit hard, early and often.

    wizakid, We went to the State USC game in Columbia a couple of years ago at the same Thursday night kick off.
    2 pieces of advice, Head to the stadium about 5 hours before kick off if you want to see kick off. Columbia traffic on a work day and also the state fair was going on. Second, drink a lot of fluids, you will sweat more than you ever have in your life. Columbia in August is about 2 degrees coller than hell that time of year.

    UNC v SC game is actually on the 29th of August. Thursday night opener. Looking forward to a road trip to Columbia. Go Heels!

    Don't know what you're complaining about if you're a State fan. The only tough game I see is that game at Wake. The rest of the tough games are in Raleigh and you have FSU's number...

  • ChuckietheChest Feb 25, 2013

    Looks like a lot of winnable games for the Pack this year. I hate playing Maryland the last game of the year, I personally hope this is the last time we ever play them.

    Concerning Swofford: It's completely absurd that someone who attended and was long- term AD at a member institution (UNC 1980-1997) is the AD of that conference. That is the ultimate conflict of interest and should not be allowed in college athletics.

  • CarolinaHurricanes87 Feb 25, 2013

    I'm sick of the schedule being made by a UNC fan. Swofford is a worthless POS

  • Coach C Feb 25, 2013

    Do the pack ever play an non conference road game? Are they broke?

  • dsalter Feb 25, 2013

    Looks like a long season with 2 bye weeks.
