Vermiglio, Sweezy, Kuhn return for Pack

Clifton Barnes’ analysis of the N.C. State win at Central Florida is below, and some quick observations in addition to that.

Wolfpack coach Tom O’Brien effectively reinstated the three players who were suspended from the opening game, with Jake Vermiglio starting at left tackle, J.R. Sweezy starting at defensive tackle and Markus Kuhn playing as a reserve defensive tackle. O’Brien had refused to say on Wednesday if the players would participate.

Rob Crisp, the mammoth freshman from Athens Drive High, played as a backup offensive lineman. O’Brien has said Crisp will remain at left tackle with Vermiglio. …

You have to be impressed by the Pack’s running game against a respectable defense. Starter Dean Haynes and true freshman Mustafa Greene both performed well. … On defense, it’s interesting to note that Nate Irving had only three tackles (one unassisted and two assisted). Irving did not have a tackle last week and is adjusting to a new position, middle linebacker. Outside linebacker Audie Cole had 12 tackles and the other outside backer, Terrell Manning, had four.
