The podcast opens this week with former NC State and NFL safety Brandan Bishop breaking down the football team's win over North Carolina before head wrestling coach Pat Popolizio joins to preview the upcoming season. Last year, the Wolfpack wrestling team had one of the best seasons in school history, beating national powerhouses Oklahoma State and Iowa on the road, finishing the regular season No. 2 in the coaches' poll, winning an ACC Championship and placing 11th at NCAAs.
Former NC State starters Terrell Manning (2008-11 linebacker), Taylor Gentry (2008-11 fullback) and Brandan Bishop (2009-12 safety) went a combined 11-1 against North Carolina. The trio joins host Ryan Tice to reflect back on the rivalry games they participated in, their favorite UNC memories, how the week leading up to the contest is different than all others, what a win in this important contest can mean for this year's team and much more on this week's podcast at Amedeo's.
Former NC State All-American point guard Chris Corchiani joined hosts Ryan Tice and Brandan Bishop on the podcast Monday night to preview basketball season. The former NCAA all-time assists leader still watches the program closely and had high praise for this edition of the Wolfpack. Corchiani thinks the squad has Final Four potential behind freshman point guard Dennis Smith Jr., who he said was the "best player that has played at NC State since David Thompson."
1996 Lou Groza Award winner Marc Primanti joined hosts Ryan Tice and Brandan Bishop to talk about how a guy who thought he was going to play college soccer at Towson ended up playing football at NC State, went from 12th string and worrying if he still had a spot on the team after the NCAA mandated 105-man roster limits to a perfect senior season that led to him being named the nation's top placekicker, and much more.
