More opponent previews and other links

USA Today previewed NC State. I was surprised by how bad NC State was last year, so I don't know if we can count on a rebound season this year. Bill Connelly at SBNation started publishing his ACC previews, including future opponents Wake Forest and Syracuse.

ESPN thinks November will be the toughest part of the schedule.

USA Hockey invited Demko to its United States National Junior Goaltender Evaluation Camp.

If you haven't been following, Soaring to Glory is once again doing a player by player breakdown of the roster as the season nears closer.

At NC State on October 11th in Raleigh marks the end of the first half of the season.

It's really a must win for BC this year. The second half is tougher than the first half.

Raleigh is a good road trip and the city has some very nice restaurants.

Carter-Finley is a great stadium and a tough place to play, because the Wolfpack has a great following and they sell out.

The last time I was there, TOB played not to lose and Spaziani's defense gave up a long bomb as time expired to the 3rd string QB - son of the announcer. Great for NC State - disgraceful for TOB and a DC who wasn't as good as people gave him credit for. Another WTF loss.

Be wary of this game and be prepared. Go BC.

WF and Syracuse are must wins as well - although for different reasons.

We definitely need revenge for last year's loss at Syracuse. That prevented us from having a really special turnaround season.

It's a game where I thought Don Brown would make some adjustments, but none came. We couldn't stop their deaking and dunking down the field - very frustrating.

Syracuse lost to GT 59 to 0. Obviously our boast of running Williams straight down their throats didn't work. Bad game plan on both sides of the ball = coaches loss in 2013.

We need to make up for that to end our season this year.

Heading down to NC ST this year for the first time, any suggestions BJK?

Yes, I'll get back to you, Claver,
