O'Brien: NC State 'In A Ditch' After Loss At BC

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State is trying to resurrect its season -- again.

The Wolfpack overcame a slow start to claw back into contention for a bowl berth, only to have a loss at Boston College place their postseason hopes back in serious jeopardy.

N.C. State (5-5, 2-4 ACC) must beat No. 7 Clemson and Maryland in back-to-back weeks to qualify for a bowl.

Coach Tom O'Brien said Monday the Wolfpack are "in a ditch" and must dig their way out again. That could be difficult against a Clemson team that has seven straight wins in the series and already has clinched the Atlantic Division title.

    Hey Origional Chuck, why don't you guys win at least half of your games, and go better than 4-6, then you can talk trash about the pack.

      Chuck, are you a pirate fan or a tarheel fan? A very good UNC team? lol, are you kidding me. Pick a team and stick with them. Get off that fence, being a carolina fan, I know you like the feeling of sitting on the fence, but you need to get off of it, people are starting to talk about you.
