    NC State has had a rough year with the Rona. First their baseball team and now their bowl opponent.

    I feel bad for NC State. Hard to believe UCLA didn't know about this before 230 today.

    Players don't want to play and neither do the coaches. Your roster might be 100 guys (including walk-ons). Five guys opt out, 10 go to the portal, 35 have covid. That still leaves you with 50 players. Heck, if I had 11, I would play. But I'm in the minority on that. I would play. I would rather compete and lose 100-0 with an offensive tackle playing at cornerback, than not play at all. It's too easy to quit these days. Texas A&M wimped out and they had at least 35 scholarship players available. That's my opinion, and it won't be shared by many.

    Didn't we play Georgia with 43?

    My sentiments exactly. I'll always opt to play as opposed to not play.

    Georgia and several others. I believe we played om with 47. Thankful that Coach Leach is teaching our players about more than just football. Sometimes life smacks you in the face and you can either quit or smack back. I choose smacking back.

    I just don't understand these kids not wanting to play. I would love to play again, they only have what? 48 guaranteed games in college. That is not a lot. I want every one I can get.

    Exactly. Suit up what you have and go play a game. Play it hard and walk out of the stadium with your head held high.

    Amen! The "We are Marshall" mentality doesn't exist it seems anymore, accept in a select few.

    Someone could argue that the entire student body is available. The players on the roster are just the students that are on the football team, officially. You telling me you couldn't find 45 students at aTm that could have stood in? They only need 22 players.

    Isn't there motto, The 12th Man? You're exactly right. Pull them out of the stands.

    UCLA canceled the bowl game because their starting DL is out even though they had walk-ons and other defensive players willing to step in.

    No team that had canceled a bowl, other than Hawaii, was anywhere close to playing just 43 like we did last year.

    Another reason I'm glad we have Mike Leach. Nothing good ever comes from quitting just because something might be difficult.

    It's amazing how quickly our society has become this soft and weak minded.
