from www.espn.com:(And not a good night for the N.C. State Wolfpack)….

ATLANTA — Cordarrelle Patterson scored two first-quarter touchdowns — one a 41-yard catch, the second a 67-yard run — and Tennessee beat North Carolina State 35-21 on Friday night in the opening game for both teams.

Patterson, a 6-foot-3 wide receiver who transferred to Tennessee from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, played like a star in his Tennessee debut. Patterson had six catches for 93 yards as the Vols won the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game.

  • TOB has got to go said,

    Tom has got to go. Debbie should have fired him last year but he saved his job in the final 3 games with lucky wins. His “star” QB will be the one that saved his job and he will also be the one that will get TOB fired. It is time for a change. I am sure there is someone close to Debbie that reads this site – please tell her it is time for TOB to go. This is the type of shuff that makes you not want to look at any future State games because you feel like you are looking at a 2nd class team even if they win. You have got to beat someone with some talent at some point. The entire ACC needs a re-set on their coaches with a few exceptions.

    Is it time to send TOB packing?

    TOB or QCB how do you see, this???

    State did not like the old coaching staff near the end because of a few stupid situations but at least Chuck put State on the national map. With Chuck you were getting “pro” type players (yes- Russell was a Chuck recruit first), national profile from his approach and schedule, national spotlight games that he actually coached to victory and a personality that people (football people) could buy into locally and nationally.

    Now what does State have – a coach that is as exciting to watch as paint drying (actually drying paint is more fun), zero recruits in the top 100 for 6 years, zero national press outside of playing a top 10 team, your top 2 players – the Dudley kid was made to look like someone was a peewee league and your QB looked like a fish out of water, your overall team looked like they could not respond to a kick in the stomach and even your attending fans sounded like they were at church instead of a football game.

    You may not have liked Chuck but I bet you would prefer his actions over this slow, old, tired, grade school perform that State rolled out yesterday. Please get rid of TOB so I can start having some proud in the pack again.

    One game does not make a player and one game does not make a season….
