I have to admit that if I were to make a list of the nation’s most sleep-inducing teams, these two might be on it, but I’m actually looking forward to today’s game for a couple of reasons.
First, I am intrigued to see NC State quarterback Russell Wilson again. I want to see if his freshman year–when he threw for 17 touchdowns and just 1 interception–was a fluke or not. Also, he’s got the longest active streak (249 passes) without a pick and you have to wonder how far he can go (he’ll probably get it out of the way quickly now!).
On the Gamecock side, I want to see if Stephen Garcia is ever going to amount to much. It’s been a while since Spurrier has had a real talent to work with and if he can’t get this guy to be productive, it may be time for him to consider other work.
Enjoy the game!
