Web Run: "This team's not undisciplined"

Chuck Amato said he is protecting N.C. State's players from perception. Until they prove otherwise, statistics show he is shielding them from reality. Whatever the case, Amato is seeking an emotional disconnection from the penalty- and turnover-filled 2004 season as the Wolfpack prepares to host Eastern Kentucky at 6 p.m. Saturday.

"This is a different football team than last year, and I'm not going to let perception affect this football team. This football team is not an undisciplined football team. I don't know how many teams in America are asked to take their hats off when they walk into a building in the year 2005 and they do. I don't know how many teams in America are asked to shave their face during the season ... I don't know how many teams in America are asked to take their locker and straighten it out after every practice that they leave here, which is a discipline." - Chuck Amato

In its season-opening, 20-16 loss to Virginia Tech, the Wolfpack committed three turnovers, forced none and had 12 penalties for 105 yards. Read More

Wide receiver Brian Clark feels N.C. State's open week came at an opportune time. The Wolfpack had Saturday off, six days following a season-opening 20-16 loss to Virginia Tech in which it was penalized 12 times for 105 yards while turning the ball over three times. State found the showing disturbingly similar to last season, when the Wolfpack was flagged an average of 9.2 times per game and committed nearly three turnovers per contest. Read More
