NC State's football season kicks off in nine days, but the NFL begins tonight! With that in mind, James and Cory touch on Wolfpack topics at the top of the show before CBS Senior Analyst Will Brinson joins the podcast.

What are Cory's thoughts on the ACC's proposal for every team to make the NCAA Tournament? What will this season hold for Philip Rivers and Russell Wilson? Will defensive stars like Bradley Chubb, Justin Jones and Germaine Pratt take the next step this fall?

Brinson covers all that and more during his segment -- which begins at the 50-minute mark in this week's episode.
