ESPNU will feature N.C. State on its "All Access" show today at 6 p.m.
An ESPN camera crew followed around the Wolfpack for a day of practice leading up to Friday's season-opener against Tennessee, which will be shown on ESPNU.
Coach Tom O'Brien normally closes practice to the media but he decided the public-relations benefits of the show, outweighed any of the potential minuses.
"(ESPN) asked if we'd be receptive and I asked them what that entailed," O'Brien said. "As we talked about it, it worked out fine. I think the kids really enjoyed it."
O'Brien even got a plug in for the show after Wednesday's practice. Asked if the ESPN cameras captured the "Icy Commander" version of O'Brien's media persona, or the "Smiling Tom," the coach deadpanned:
"I have no idea. You'll have to watch tonight to find out."
