One of the lone bright spots for the NC State football team this year was the play of one Shadrach Thornton. Unfortunately, the running back is once again facing legal issues. Already having one assault charge deferred back in June, Thornton could be in very hot water with a new sexual assault charge possibly pending. [...]
Yesterday we learned that Jon Tenuta was leaving NC State to become the DC at the University of Illinois. Here at TSB, we alluded to the fact that Fedora plucking Koenning from the DC role at Illinois created a hole in the NC State staff, due to Tenuta leaving to take the DC job. Then [...]
Wow. Dabo Swinney was just named the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year. Heather Dinich has a good piece up at ESPN bringing to light some of Swinney’s accomplishments this year. When you look at these together, it helps explain why he was the unanimous winner of the natty in coaching.
Clemson’s first 10 win [...]
Yo, Seth Greenberg thinks Mike London is too expressive on the sidelines, you guys.
This weekend produced lots of great stuff:
- Virginia Tech rolls into Charlotte, while Clemson limps in

Someone better check his medications, because something is not right when less than a week removed from having your AD in front of the NCAA defending your program’s infractions that involve academics, you probably should not be spouting off about your rival’s academics. Just saying.
Withers was on with our man Joe [...]

After the 34-0 drubbing in Tallahassee the rumblings are getting louder about TOB’s future at State. Is this a “must win”? Some Statefans have been waxing poetic about the “good ol’ days” with Amato.
Will an interim coach come into Raleigh and do what Butch Davis never did? Win a [...]
If this story doesn’t pull at your strings a little, then you are either heartless or Nino. One of the two, but not mutually exclusive either.
