Well that was rough. Just when it seemed like the Deacs were gaining some steam, they get crushed by the only winless team in the ACC. Here's a haiku, as I gave the postgame article about as much...
Jim Grobe has suspended six players, including four starters and second string running back DeAndre Martin for a violation of team rules.
In preparation for the Demon Deacons' trip up to College Park, BSD caught up with SBN sister site Testudo Times to talk about their season thus far and what Wake fans should watch for on Saturday.

Wake Forest freshman forward Devin Thomas had minor knee surgery on Tuesday afternoon. Thomas is expected to miss 4-6 weeks but make a full recovery for the 2012-13 season. The arthroscopic procedure cleaned up loose fragments in Thomas' knee. The procedure was performed at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center by team physician Dr. David Martin. "This was a routine procedure to remove some loose cartilage fragments from Devin's knee," said Martin. "We wanted to be proactive with this to get him ready for the season."Devin Thomas Undergoes Minor Knee Surgery - Wake Forest Official Athletic Site
"The guy that could really and truly do it is Devin Bolling,'' Grobe said. "I hate to say that, because he's going to have to really get intense and start blowing some snot bubbles to be the guy, but if he did he's got all the talent we need to be that guy. The talent's all there. "And he's an older guy, and that would keep us looking at the younger guys to give us some reps, but not have to be main guys.Deacons' search continues along offensive line | JournalNow.com
BSD takes a look at the 2012 Wake Forest running backs as they try to build on an injury-laden 2011 season.
In what some are calling one of the biggest upsets in international basketball and the greatest win in the history of African basketball, Nigeria followed up their upset of Lithuania to eliminate Greece, 80-79, in the men's basketball Olympic qualifying quarterfinals Friday in Caracas, Venezuela. A pair of Nigerians with ties to the New Orleans Hornets helped make it happen. Ike Diogu, a former Hornets who never played a game for New Orleans due to injury, led Nigeria with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Fellow forward Al-Farouq Aminu, heading into his second season as a Hornet, battled foul trouble but added 13 points to help his nation rally for the victory.Aminu, Nigeria Stun Greece To Come Within One Win Of Olympic Berth

Good stuff here. Also, let this serve as a reminder to get out to BB&T Field this Saturday at 1 for the Spring Game. Free admission and autographs afterwards. Hooray football!
Instead they’ll finish ninth if N.C. State wins at Virginia Tech tomorrow and 10th if the Hokies prevail. They’ve taken a step, but it’s a halting step by a short baby.My Take on Wake - Tech Solves Wake Zone

"Central Dauphin’s determined star forward, a 6-9 Wake Forest recruit, absolutely dominated in a 78-57 rout of state-ranked and previously unbeaten Scranton in the finale of the five-game Villa Classic (Harrisburg edition) at CD High School. Thomas finished with 43 points (15 of 19 shooting), 22 rebounds, four assists and five blocks, matching his career-high scoring total set in a three-overtime win last year vs. Bishop McDevitt."
"There are no rules here. He's going to have an opportunity," coach Mark Jackson said. "He can get anywhere he wants on the floor, and he can pass the ball. I think he attacks and is very aggressive defensively. "If he comes here and does that, he'll have a chance. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out."Ish Smith to vie for Warriors' backup point-guard
"To me that was a no-brainer,’’ Grobe said. "He was out of bounds and came back in and caught the ball. "But the problem that we’ve got is we have a term `indisputatable’ for replays. Well ask any lawyer, and everything’s disputable. So what I’d like to see them do is change the rule book and say `If you used a litlte common sense, do you think this should be changed?’ Put it that way and it would be a little more obvious. But when you say `indisputable,’ anything can be disputed. "They reviewed it and said it was too close to call, that you couldn’t say he was out and came back in. Of course the problem with that is, it doesn’t mean that on third down they wouldn’t have scored. That was second down. They could have scored on third down. But that would have taken seven more seconds off the clock and now (they’re) not kicking a field goal. So it was an important time, and that’s not why we lost the game or whatever.My Take on Wake - Upon Futher Review | JournalNow.com
