ACC: Mustafa Greene

NC State running back Mustafa Greene has been dismissed from the team, according to the Wilmington Star News.

NC State coach Tom O’Brien told reporters after the Wolfpack's 20-18 win over Maryland that Greene, along with redshirt freshman wide receiver Tyrrell Burriss, have been dismissed.
“They are no longer on the football team,” O’Brien said, according to the report. “They weren’t champions in the classroom or in the community. They’re not going to get the opportunity to play on this football team, so they will no longer be with us.”

Greene was in the midst of serving an indefinite suspension, and he has had a turbulent career filled with more injuries and drama than actual production. When he did play, though, he showed a lot of potential. It's unfortunate for NC State and for Greene that his potential wasn't realized.
Though NC State and Miami have identical 3-1 record headed into their game on Saturday, how much do we know about either team?

NC State comes into the contest after decisively beating South Alabama and The Citadel, two teams the Wolfpack should have rolled. Have they found a running game now with Shadrach Thornton? Is Mike Glennon going to play more consistently now that big-time FBS games are back on the schedule? Is the offensive line better? The front seven?

Miami comes into the game after its crazy overtime comeback win over Georgia Tech. Are the Hurricanes the team we saw storm out to a 19-0 lead? Or the one that fell behind 36-19? Or the one that stormed back to win?

"I hate to go backward; we have to go forward now," Miami coach Al Golden said at his weekly news conference. "I hope we learned something, but I hope we learned a lot from the Kansas State experience, too. Given the same situation, the way we went about trying to get back in that game, we went about it as individuals. This approach here was forget about the scoreboard, put your blinders on, and execute one play at a time. Have the confidence and the trust, and live with the results. Hopefully we gained confidence from that, but I don't want to keep living like this. It's not fun. We're in condition, we’re growing mentally tougher, there's some unity in our reservoir that we can rely on, and the guys stayed together and did a good job.”

NC State has won two straight in this series, but the teams have not played since 2008, so there is some major unfamiliarity on both sides. Al Golden was not the head coach at Miami the last time these two teams played; Tom O'Brien was in his second year with the Wolfpack.

Still, this is a hugely important game for both teams. Miami is already 2-0 in ACC play. NC State has yet to play a conference game. O'Brien said this week he is a fan of playing his four nonconference games to open the season and believes he did get some questions about his team answered in the last two weeks.

"We played well on defense in both games," he said during his weekly news conference. "We’ve made strides offensively, even with the injuries. Maybe we found something in Shadrach.”

Thornton got the starting nod last week because of injuries to Tony Creecy and James Washington, and another suspension for Mustafa Greene. Creecy will be available against the Hurricanes, but Thornton should see time as well after rushing for 145 yards and two touchdowns against The Citadel.

“He really didn’t miss anything," O'Brien said. "He was headed the right direction, ran the right routes, and did what he was supposed to do. So we hope that after his first experience he will be better this week and more prepared to do things. This defense we will face against Miami will pressure us a lot more than the defense did last Saturday. He’s not afraid to block somebody and that’s good because he will have to pick up somebody in the pass protection this week."

Miami has its own running back coming off an impressive performance, as Mike James scored four touchdowns, including the game-winner in overtime. He and Duke Johnson are going to be a formidable duo to stop. Receiver Phillip Dorsett and quarterback Stephen Morris had big days against the Jackets as well.

But this game Saturday should give us more answers about both teams.

Duke, NC State come out on top

September, 22, 2012
Recapping the early-evening games ...

NC State 52, Citadel 14: True freshman Shadrach Thornton stole the show for NC State in its victory over the Citadel.

Thornton not only played in his first collegiate game, but he got his first collegiate start and he made the most of it, running for 145 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries. Thornton started in place of the injured James Washington and Tony Creecy and the suspended Mustafa Greene and gave this running game a huge jolt.

Do I need to remind you that Creecy went into the game as the team's leading rusher with 130 yards? Thornton was the only healthy running back to practice all week, and became the first NC State freshman to go over 100 yards rushing in his first game since Joe McIntosh did it against Richmond in 1981. NC State finished with 282 rushing yards, its highest team total since 297 against Southern Mississippi in 2005.

Meanwhile, Mike Glennon went 19-of-24 for 233 yards with a touchdown, and Quintin Payton had five catches for 100 yards.

David Amerson recorded an interception in his third consecutive game and now is in a tie for the school record with 16 for his career.

Duke 38, Memphis 14: It was not the prettiest game for the Blue Devils, who struggled to put away one of the worst teams in college football. But they absolutely dominated the second half and are now 3-1 headed into their game at Wake Forest last week.

Turnovers and missed opportunities plagued this team -- there were fumbles at the Memphis 14 and at the goal line, and a muffed punt, too. Duke finished at minus-four in turnover margin (four turnovers to zero for Memphis) and found itself trailing 14-7 midway through the second quarter. But Sean Renfree found his groove, and so did the defense -- which ended up holding Memphis to nine first downs and 1-of-11 on third down for the night.

Renfree ended up going 26-of-37 for 314 yards with four touchdown passes and one interception. Conner Vernon had eight catches for 120 yards and two touchdowns for the 11th 100-yard game of his career.

Duke now opens the season with three consecutive home wins for the first time since 1994.

NCSU RB Mustafa Greene suspended

September, 15, 2012
NC State running back Mustafa Greene is suspended for today's game against South Alabama (6 p.m. ET, ESPN3), a school spokesman confirmed. No reason was given, but coach Tom O'Brien is expected to address it after the game.

It seems like every time Greene is on the verge of making a comeback, something prevents it. He was the team’s leading rusher in 2010 with 597 yards, and he caught 30 passes for another 272 yards. Greene suffered a foot injury in spring practice of 2011 and missed the entire season. He missed most of spring drills this year and part of preseason camp to concentrate on academics, but ended up leading the team in rushing in the opener, despite being the third back in the game.

Greene started the win at Connecticut.

NC State a team on the rise

August, 28, 2012
The talk is growing louder again about NC State. Given all the talent returning, given how close it has come to winning an ACC title before, could this be the season the Wolfpack finally puts it all together?

Some folks say yes.

[+] EnlargeNC State's Tom O'Brien
Jeremy Brevard/US PRESSWIRENC State coach Tom O'Brien's Wolfpack are a sleeper pick in the ACC this season.
So the dark horse label has been firmly affixed onto this team as it gets ready for a huge opener against Tennessee on Friday night in the Georgia Dome.

"We’ve always been a sleeper team," receiver Tobais Palmer said in a recent phone interview."I feel as though there's certain teams in the ACC that get respect, like Clemson, Florida State, those type of guys. Nobody gives us the respect we deserve, but that's OK. We use it as motivation and it helps us out. Going into the first game, I’m excited to see what this season brings."

Just look at what the Wolfpack have going into the season. The best cornerback in the nation in David Amerson, who set an ACC record with 13 interceptions last season. A veteran leader in Mike Glennon, one of the top quarterbacks in the ACC. Major depth at running back -- so much so that coach Tom O'Brien may deviate from his normal two-back rotation and play starter Tony Creecy, James Washington and Mustafa Greene against the Volunteers.

And one of the most experienced offensive lines in all of college football, with four starters who each logged over 700 snaps last season. Tennessee coach Derek Dooley said Tuesday on a media call for the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game that this is the best team NC State has had in a while, though O'Brien was a little more reserved when asked what he thinks of the team he has for 2012.

"Right now you get to the end of camp and you look forward to playing the opening game because after practicing against yourself, you're not sure what you have," O'Brien said. "A lot of the questions we might have about ourselves, when you go against an SEC powerhouse like Tennessee will be answered."

There are some question marks to be sure. The entire starting linebacker unit is new. Depth has to be developed at receiver, where projected starter Bryan Underwood is out with an injury. And starting cornerback C.J. Wilson has been held out of practice because of an NCAA eligibility issue and is not listed on the depth chart for the game. Junior Dontae Johnson is expected to start in his place.

NC State also plays in the tough Atlantic Division, featuring preseason favorite No. 7 Florida State and reigning ACC champ No. 14 Clemson, the two highest ranked teams in the ACC. For NC State to truly have a shot at the ACC title, the Wolfpack are going to have to beat both teams, something they have not done in the same season since 2002.

They have split against them the last two seasons. Last year, NC State lost to Florida State 34-0, the first time since 2008 the Wolfpack had been shutout. But after a devastating loss to Boston College, the Wolfpack went into their home game against No. 7 Clemson without anybody giving them much of a shot, mostly because they were fighting for bowl eligibility. But they pulled off the major shocker, winning 37-13.

Go back to 2010. NC State beat Florida State but lost to Clemson 14-13 after blowing a fourth-quarter lead. Still, the Wolfpack had a shot at winning the ACC heading into their season finale against Maryland. But they lost 38-31, blowing their chances. They had to watch Florida State get to the ACC championship game instead.

"For the past two years, we've had a shot at it," Palmer said. "The year before, we gave the game away losing to Maryland. Last year, we gave the league away. We've always been so close every year. We feel this year is the year everyone is going to dial in. We’ve been getting after each other. We're holding each other accountable. As long as we keep doing that, we should be a hard team to stop."

One good reason: NC State

July, 11, 2012

This series looks at one good reason each school in the ACC will win this year, and, just to make sure we cover both sides of the story, one good reason why it won’t. For most schools, the focus is on winning the ACC title. For the programs that missed out on the postseason entirely last year, the focus is on getting back to a bowl game (at least it is here in the blogosphere). We’re going in alphabetical order.

The series continues today with one good reason why …

NC State will win the ACC title. The offensive line. This is one of the most experienced groups in the Atlantic Division, and that’s half the battle -- especially when Florida State, Wake Forest, Maryland and Clemson all have question marks up front entering fall camp. Four of five starters return for NC State in center Camden Wentz, guards Zach Allen and Duran Christophe and tackle R.J. Mattes. That group has combined for 96 starts and the starters weigh an average of 312.2 pounds. Their experience will be invaluable for the protection of quarterback Mike Glennon, who has a strong, accurate arm when given the time to make throws. They’ll also have a talented running back to block for in Mustafa Greene, who has since been cleared after missing all of last season with a foot injury. The pieces are in place for this to be one of the more productive offenses in the ACC, and it all starts up front with several players who should be candidates for all-conference honors.

Why it won’t: FSU and Virginia Tech’s defenses are better. I know, NC State doesn’t play the Hokies during the regular season, but should the Wolfpack actually win the division and play for the title, I’d give the edge to Virginia Tech’s defense. And when NC State hosts Florida State on Oct. 6, the Seminoles will have the better defense. It’s not that NC State’s defense is going to be bad – they’ve got one of the best players in the country in cornerback David Amerson, and the depth on the defensive line has improved. It’s simply that FSU has recruited better, faster players and is even deeper, particularly up front. The linebacker position remains a concern for NC State, as all three starters have to be replaced.

2012 upset watch

June, 14, 2012
During the regular season, the ACC blog features a weekly “upset watch” post, a prediction of the top three games most likely to feature an upset. In 2011, the majority of games highlighted in that post came to fruition. So let’s have a little fun and take an early look at the top three potential upsets for 2012. Here’s a look at which top contenders will fall, in order of the most likely:

1. Clemson at Wake Forest (Oct. 25): Don’t underestimate the Deacs. They’ll have home-field advantage for a rare Thursday night game in Winston-Salem, they’ve got a talented QB-WR duo of Tanner Price and Michael Campanaro, a solid running back in Josh Harris (if he can stay healthy), and a talented defensive backfield that includes the ACC’s defensive rookie of the year, Bud Noel. They’ve also got one of the best coaching staffs in the ACC. Last year, Wake Forest scored 21 points in the third quarter to take a 28-14 lead. The Deacs came within a field goal of controlling the Atlantic Division.

2. Florida State at NC State (Oct. 6): I know, I know. The Noles blanked NC State 34-0 last year, and Florida State’s defense should somehow be even better this year. Give quarterback Mike Glennon some credit, though. He’ll have four starters back on the offensive line, along with the help of running back Mustafa Greene. NC State’s secondary is also one of the best in the country. The question is whether the Pack can handle the Noles up front on both sides. Despite much uncertainty about Florida State’s offensive line this offseason, word has it those guys are going to be good -- really good. This is going to be a tall task for Tom O’Brien. Florida State is the better team. But the Noles have been known to make a penalty or two, a turnover here and there. NC State can beat a top-10 team -- just ask Clemson.

3. Miami at Duke (Nov. 24): Most of you have heard me write about Duke needed to beat a team it’s “not supposed to.” Well, here you go. As of right now, it looks like Duke will have the better quarterback in veteran Sean Renfree. The Blue Devils also have 17 starters returning, compared to Miami’s 12 -- and only four of them are on offense. Receiver Conner Vernon has a chance to end his career as the ACC’s all-time leader in pass receptions and receiving yards. Times have changed. The gap between these two programs no longer spans the globe.
In recent years, the ACC has produced some of the nation’s top running backs. It has been a position of strength and depth for the conference, but this year, the league has some big shoes to fill. The two leading rushers from 2011 – Virginia Tech’s David Wilson and Miami’s Lamar Miller – decided to leave early for the NFL. Two more of the ACC’s top 10 rushers from last season – Maryland’s Davin Meggett and Wake Forest’s Brandon Pendergrass – must also be replaced. The dismissals of BC’s Montel Harris and Clemson’s Mike Bellamy were unexpected headlines this spring.

When it comes to how much rushing yardage returns in the league, nobody has more work to do than Miami, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. Without Miller, the Canes return only .215 percent of last year’s rushing yardage.

Only two 1,000-yard rushers return from last season -- UNC’s Giovani Bernard and Clemson’s Andre Ellington. Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington, who had 987 rushing yards, also returns, along with UVa’s Perry Jones, who had 915.

Which running backs in the ACC will crack the 1,000-yard mark this fall?

Based on past performance and future potential, here’s a look at your top running backs for 2012:

1. Giovani Bernard, UNC: He finished second in the ACC in rushing with 1,265 yards, a 5.2 average and 13 touchdowns. He also had 45 pass receptions for 362 yards and a touchdown. His combined yardage (1,615) was the second-most by a freshman in ACC history.

2. Andre Ellington, Clemson: He rushed for 1,178 yards, a 5.3 average, and 11 touchdowns in 2011. He also had five 100-yard games, including 212 yards against Maryland.

3. Mustafa Greene, NC State. He missed all of last season with a foot injury but led the team in rushing as a freshman in 2010 with 597 yards. He’ll have an experienced offensive line to work with, as the Pack returns four of five starters up front.

4. Perry Jones, Virginia: He had three 100-yard rushing games last year, including a career-high 149 yards against Georgia Tech.

Don’t forget about: Mike James, Miami; Orwin Smith, Georgia Tech; Chris Thompson, Florida State; Devonta Freeman, Florida State; Josh Harris, Wake Forest.

Atlantic Division spring previews

February, 14, 2012
For some, it might feel like the season just ended, but for others -- like Duke, Maryland and Boston College, which didn't get to play in a bowl game -- spring ball can't get here fast enough. The Eagles kick off spring practices in the ACC on Saturday, so today we'll take a quick look at the main storylines for each team in the conference heading into the spring:


Spring practice start date: Feb. 18
Spring game: March 31 (1 p.m. ET)

What to watch:
  • Yet another offensive transition. Doug Martin will be the Eagles’ fifth offensive coordinator in five seasons, including Kevin Rogers, who took a medical leave of absence early last year and never returned, and Dave Brock, who replaced Rogers. Martin said he is looking for a physical downhill running game, wants to increase the tempo and add some no-huddle elements.
  • The return of running back Montel Harris. The ACC’s leading rusher in 2010 missed most of last season with a knee injury, but he is expected to return for spring ball. How healthy and durable he is remains a question, but he’s still aiming to break a 33-year-old ACC rushing record.
  • Who will replace All-American linebacker Luke Kuechly? It’s an open competition as Kuechly is the only linebacker departing. Sean Duggan was his backup last year, but Steele Divitto put in a lot of work this offseason on his own time.

Spring practice start date: March 7
Spring game: April 14 (4 p.m. ET)

What to watch:
  • The rebuilding efforts up front. Clemson has to replace three starters on both the offensive and defensive lines. On defense, Malliciah Goodman is the only starter returning on the line, and he’ll be one of the candidates to replace the production of end Andre Branch, but Corey Crawford will be the next in line at the position.
  • The defensive transition under first-year defensive coordinator Brent Venables. After giving up 70 points to West Virginia in the Orange Bowl, Dabo Swinney fired Kevin Steele and hired Venables. How quickly will he be able to make a difference and will everyone buy in?
  • The linebackers. This is the year that the outstanding linebackers in the 2011 recruiting class will finally have their chance to shine. Venables is also the linebackers coach, and he’ll have a young, talented group to work with. The lineup of the future should include Stephone Anthony, Lateek Townsend and Tony Steward, all top 100 players coming out of high school.

Spring practice start date: March 19
Spring game: April 14

What to watch:
  • Maturation of the offensive line. FSU started four freshmen in the Champs Sports Bowl against Notre Dame, and those players will be expected to continue their improvement this spring. The most important question is who will replace the top two tackles from a year ago in Zebrie Sanders and Andrew Datko.
  • The kicking game. Punters aren’t usually in the spotlight, but that wasn’t the case at FSU, where All-American Shawn Powell had an impact on every game. Finding a replacement for him this offseason will be a priority.
  • The running backs. Chris Thompson, who broke his back last year, is expected to return this spring, and has been cleared for the most part, but the coaching staff isn’t likely to push him. Devonta Freeman will be the main man, but there are plenty of other candidates to emerge -- if, of course, the offensive line figures things out.

Spring practice start date: March 10
Spring game: April 21

What to watch:
  • The quarterback drama. Maryland’s two-quarterback storyline will continue this spring -- if, of course, Danny O’Brien decides to remain at Maryland instead of transferring. There has been much speculation about his future, but for now, the staff expects him to be limited this spring as he continues to recover from a broken arm. C.J. Brown should get the most reps.
  • An overhaul of schemes. Maryland hired a new offensive coordinator in Mike Locksley and a new defensive coordinator in Brian Stewart. How quickly the Terps buy into their systems and philosophies will be critical in turning around last year’s 2-10 record.
  • The running backs. This is a position where a true freshman could earn some playing time this year, but standout recruit Stefon Diggs won’t be on campus in time to compete this spring. Meanwhile, Justus Pickett returns, along with Brandon Ross, who redshirted last year. Wes Brown (who played at Good Counsel with Diggs) could also compete for major playing time when he arrives for summer camp.

Spring practice start date: March 23
Spring game: April 21 (1 p.m. ET)

What to watch:
  • Who will emerge as dependable linebackers. With Audie Cole and Terrell Manning gone, this position is a big question mark for the Wolfpack. Cole was the team’s leading tackler each of the past two seasons, and Manning was one of the defense’s most disruptive players last year.
  • The new go-to for Glennon. With T.J. Graham gone, NC State turns to a young group of receivers. Tobias Palmer and Bryan Underwood return, but there are several unheralded players who have a chance to make names for themselves by emerging as a go-to player for quarterback Mike Glennon.
  • The running game. NC State returns four of five starters on the offensive line, but will Mustafa Greene return in time for the spring? When he does, the Pack will have another new running backs coach, who has yet to be announced. NC State had the No. 109 rushing offense in the country last year. Greene would be a big boost.

Spring practice start date: March 1
Spring game: April 14 (1 p.m. ET)

What to watch:
  • The revamped offensive line. The Deacs have to replace four starters up front. Coach Jim Grobe has played only one true freshman there in 11 years. He has several redshirt freshmen and sophomores who are expected to fill in.
  • The next playmakers. Wake Forest is thin at running back (Josh Harris returns, but has a history of hamstring injuries), the Deacs lose two starting wideouts -- including record-setter Chris Givens -- their top two tight ends and 2011 leading rusher Brandon Pendergrass.
  • Solidifying the secondary. The Deacs have to replace starting free safety Josh Bush and starting strong safety Cyhl Quarles. There is still plenty of talent at cornerback, but the safety position is thin.
