NCSU 2008 Football Entrance



GURU 'U?' Because of the success against West Virginia the past two years, coaches from different colleges visited USF's defensive staff in the summer for advice on stopping the spread offense.

Last week, N.C. State coach Tom O'Brien said he saw no reason to check with USF's coaches.

"Did you watch them against Oregon?" said O'Brien, referring to USF's 56-21 Sun Bowl loss. "Go look at that game. That was the spread that they were defending. I'm not saying anything about South Florida's defense, but if they're the gurus, we'd better go somewhere else."

USF defensive coordinator Wally Burnham responded to O'Brien's quote Tuesday.

"Here's the way I feel about it," Burnham said. "He's right, we're not gurus. On the other hand, we try to handle things professionally and not say anything ... with class, not say anything about anyone else's coaching staff. He can say what he wants to.

"The other thing, I forget what bowl game they were in. That's all I've got to say."

The fact that the N.C. State football team is 2-2 on the season is no surprise — the Wolfpack have been the very definition of middle-of-the-road mediocrity in recent years. In 11 of the 12 previous seasons, N.C. State has finished at .500, or one game below or above the break-even mark, in either its overall record or ACC play. Read More
