Riches to Rags: The Demise of Wake Forest Basketball

1

In the two decades between 1990 and 2010, only an elite few basketball programs enjoyed more consistent success than the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. During that span, Wake Forest compiled a 415-215 record, won multiple ACC regular season and tournament titles, featured seven All-Americans and eight first round NBA draft picks (including perennial NBA All-Stars Tim Duncan and Chris Paul). The Deacons played in post-season tourneys 18 out of those 20 years, including a run of 16 consecutive seasons (unmatched by any ACC team over the same span). Since 2010 Wake’s overall record is 25-47 (5-27 conference record), the Deacs have two consecutive ACC cellar finishes and prospects are similarly bleak this season. What happened?

Newman out, Hedlund in at kicker for Wake Forest

"I was very disappointed with his first kick,’’ Grobe said. "I thought he had a pretty good snap, a pretty good set, and he didn’t hit it very good. And then the second kick, really, Alex (Wulfeck) bobbled the snap and then got it down, but Jimmy hit it great. You know, it just was a off a little bit. I was more upset with the first one than the second one. The second one we didn’t get the snap and set great but he still followed through and hit the ball really, really good. "So you know it’s time for us to look at Chad a little bit, and see what he can do, see if he can go out there and kick. I think Jimmy’s still doing a pretty nice job kicking off. His leg strength’s pretty good. So I would think, going forward, we’re probably going to look at Chad a little more as a field-goal guy and Jimmy more as a kick-off guy.’‘
