Huzzah! Mark your calenders for April 17 (spring game) to get your football fix to last you through the summer. Frump it for a breakdown of the weeks ahead…
Wolfpack spring football practice began today and like usual for Pack fans, hope springs eternal. The Pack welcomes back a desperately-needed playmaker in Nate Irving from injuries sustained last season in a devastating car accident. Can Irving return to his previous form? The Pack D last season was a wreck itself as it could not settle on a rotation in the back 7 and gave up chunks of yardage to the likes of Thaddeus Lewis and Noodle-Arm Yates. The spring will be crucial to establishing the starters in the secondary and getting the young guys as many reps as possible. The experience gained last season and the addition of Jon Tenuta should help, but anyone who saw the gaping holes last season knows there is a looooong way to go.
The other major story of the spring is the QB situation, as Mike Glennon
will take 100% of the first team snaps while Russell Wilson plays baseball and contemplates his future. Can Glennon progress to a point where he could be a legitimate starter should Wilson decide to end his playing days? There is no question that should Wilson return, the Wolfpack offense will be prolific through the air, returning the entire receiving corps as well as All-ACC TE George Bryan. The Wolfpack also must insert new faces along the offensive line and at running back, as the familiar faces of Toney Baker and Jamelle Eugene are now gone.
