12/31/2012 - Scouting the North Carolina State pass defense: This was supposed to be the team's strength and it still shows signs of being something to boast about. There just have been too many blatant breakdowns at crucial junctures to overlook. The team has been hit with big gainers by opponents far too often to escape scrutiny. Yet there are parts that make this group noteworthy, with record-setting CB David Amerson, who set the ACC's single-season record for interceptions last team, and S Earl Wolff, an All-ACC first-team selection.
