Web Run: Wolfpack just didn't win enough

If timing is everything, Chuck Amato's was rotting away consistently. They waited -- some patiently, some with that passion fueled mostly by that marvelous arm of Philip Rivers -- for Amato's alma mater, N.C. State, to turn the football program up a notch.

"Chuck Amato's primary shortcoming, and eventual undoing, as N.C. State's head football coach was his failure to respond to the importance of offensive production. That's the lesson the school must learn from Amato's exit on Sunday." - N&O's Caulton Tudor

If timing is everything, Chuck Amato's was rotting away consistently. They waited -- some patiently, some with that passion fueled mostly by that marvelous arm of Philip Rivers -- for Amato's alma mater, N.C. State, to turn the football program up a notch. They came buying tickets, plenty of them, and they stood in line and didn't complain when some couldn't sit on the 50-yard line.

N.C. State (4-0) and Michigan (7-0) will kick off the ACC/Big 10 Challenge tonight at the RBC Center at 7 p.m. It will only be the Wolfpack and the Wolverines' second game against a team with a winning record this season. With the exception of Wofford, who defeated Cincinnati and currently holds a 4-2 record, State's other three opponents' combined record is 4-11. The Wolverines' schedule has been much of the same -- only one opponent with a winning record and six teams with a losing record. Their opponents' combined record stands at 14-24. Read More
