I am thinking about doing a trip to Triangle Brewery before the game. They do a tour from 1-3. It is $3 and you get to drink. If people are up for it we can make it happen.

Everyone in Powerbait’s car.

NCCU is full of shit. There are no State regs. because we’re a state school to, & have alcohol.

How far is the campus from downtown Durham? The area around the Bulls stadium is fantastic and I could definitely pregame (and post-game for that matter) around there if it’s not too far.

not as close as Duke’s campus, that’s for sure.

It’s not really walking distance, but nothing in Durham is really that far from downtown.

Also, the American Tobacco campus (the area around the park) is cool, but I prefer Brightleaf, Warehouse District and 9th Street more.

Sucks this one is at 5pm or I’d be there. Panthers home opener the next day.

Its about a 25 minute walk from downtown to campus(fairly safe but I wouldnt do it at night), you can also catch the fayetteville street bus #5. Don’t forget to check out the new Durham Museum of History behind the train station.

I wouldn’t walk from downtown, especially since most places you would go before the game you’re gonna be a longer walk than 25 minutes. That, and I’m not sure there’d be sidewalks the whole way.

Is Kayne their coach?

No game is easy on the road, but this is one I really feel we should win this year.

The stats from that game were ridiculous.

http://espn.go.com/ncf/boxscore?id=332572429

We converted twice as many first downs, and gained 150 more total yards. It is crazy to see a team have 533 total yards and complete 38 passes and only score 14 points. This game was lost because of turnovers and probably a little bit of overconfidence after those first two games.

Well the reason we have so many yards and first downs is strictly because of the turnovers, lending themselves to how many possessions we had. Didn’t they also return a INT or 2 for TD’s and/or a kickoff? That’s going to skew the numbers a bit in our favor.

The opening kickoff of the second half, Central took it all the way for a touchdown, thereby killing our momentum we had from the end of the first half and setting the tone for the rest of the game.

The NCCU game will be one of two that the Alumni Association will have a pre game tailgate. Don’t know the specifics but will pass more on as I learn more. (BTW, the other game is the Citadel)

I remember that game having a sobering effect on many of our fans, including me. Not only did we sober up after tailgating, but we had a reality check on what it is really like to have a first-year program.

I think we win this year’s game.
