N.C. State: Not Their Year

It certainly has not been the year of the Wolfpack. Spirits were down for the North Carolina State team long before Boston College handed them a 37-17 loss on Saturday night - their string of bad luck continues as the team announced a third starter would be sidelined for the remainder of the season with a knee injuiry. Defensive tackle Demario Pressley will join tight end Anthony Hill and running back Toney Baker on the disabled list, as a knee injury will take the senior off of the field for the rest of the season.

The 6-foot-4, 290-pound senior tallied four tackles, including one for a loss, in last week's opener against Central Florida, but did not play in this week's contest due to the impending surgery he will undergo on his knee. The preseason All-ACC selection was expected to anchor the Wolfpack defense, but will now be forced to join the growing number of his teammates that has been relegated to the sidelines. Pressley does have a redshirt year remaining, which he will most likely choose to use, but with so many injuries robbing N.C. State of its best players, the Wolfpack's 2007 season may be beyond salvation.
