Matt Coe pulls no punches in dismantling the ACC with how their obvious bias towards certain teams is hurting everyone.  Text and Podcast form.

The ACC is Falling Behind
Matt Coe unloads on the ACC in podcast and text form and he’s 100% right. The league is falling behind on and off the field.

It's a slow time of year for pretty much all college sports. Spring football practice is over, along with spring hoops workouts. The transfer portal is slowing down and the NFL draft is behind us but don't worry, we've got some awesome content coming in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, here's what you might have missed.

Alim McNeil has pretty much maxed out his rookie contract with some life-changing money.

Speaking of drafts, NC State's top baseball recruit, Khalil Watson from Wake Forest, is projected to go #7 in the MLB draft.  That pretty much rules out him playing any kind of college ball.

Mock draft: No Leiter, Rocker at No. 1?
In previous years, we’d be roughly a month away from the Draft at this point and the picture would be coming into clearer focus. But with the event pushed back to July 11 and teams having less history than ever on college players because of the pandemic, it’s still very

NC State Softball beat the Heels and made it to the finals of the ACCT where they eventually lost to FSU

Former NC State Chancellor Marye Anne Fox passed away. While I don't really follow university politics, she brought us Chuck Amato and pushed us farther. SFN had a good comment on it:

He's also put together a committee for football which is a good sign.

If you're not following former NC State guard and podcast guest Tyler Lewis on Twitter, you should be. His insight into guard play and the videos he's making are very good.

Recruiting

One of the top players in the state is right in our backyard. Wesley Grimes a WR from Millbrook is blowing up and is a must-get for NC State. Check out his highlights from the Rivals Camp in Indy.  That curl route is insane 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮

Icky and Grant Gibson both crack PFF's top returning OL lists.  I'm going to go ahead and say you won't find 9 better OTs in CFB so Icky at #10 is a crime.

I can't even hate Mack Brown for this, just a good move.
