O'Brien Brings NC State Team Home To Cincinnati

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Tom O'Brien is taking North Carolina State to his hometown of Cincinnati. The Wolfpack are bringing some new worries with them.

The consensus opinion before the season was that N.C. State's defense had to carry the team while new quarterback Mike Glennon and an inexperienced offense found their way.

Three games in, and it's the other way around.

The Wolfpack (2-1) likely will be without at least three defensive starters Thursday night when they visit the Cincinnati Bearcats. Linebacker Terrell Manning is having surgery on his left knee and was replaced by Dwayne Maddox on the depth chart.

O'Brien, one of five members of his coaching staff with ties to Cincinnati, said Monday that the rash of injuries means the coaches "are the Dutch boy, putting fingers in the dike."
