Not a good start for Pack's Baker

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Toney Baker had waited so long for that moment -- too long maybe. Two years, two days and oh, about an hour or so since he was last in a game on this field. And it showed.
In his first carry since 2007, Baker fumbled, costing the Pack precious field position and leading to South Carolina's first touchdown. It was the kind of devastating mistake you could tell he won't forgive himself for anytime in the near future.
The problem is, he needs to forget it now. And so does the rest of NC State's offense. Otherwise, it could be a long night.
