The Demon Deacons, “The Triad’s Team” got it done with the huge win Saturday over Maryland 38-24 and now they face Georgia Tech in the ACC title game this week in Jacksonville.Â Georgia Tech looked very beatable in their loss to Georgia and Yellow Jacket QB Reggie Ball did not have a good day versus the Bulldogs and if Ball(no relation to David Ball of riding with Private Malone fame) is not careful he will feelÂ “The Pounce” of Wake Forest in the big championship ball game.
You have to beÂ so proud of WFU and the way they have gone about their business.Â Some would sayÂ WFU has been lucky to reach 10-2 and to be on their way toward a possible major bowl game in early January.Â If Wake has been living on luck, I would like to have some of that kind of luck.Â Wake is the kind of team we can all pull for.Â Small school, good honest coach, and they have the right attitude.Â You don’t see WFU showing off and and trying to make jackassesÂ out of themselves and their university.
We need toÂ band together and become 50% WFUÂ fans and 50% fans for ourÂ other team that is either lookingÂ for a new coach or starting from scratch after another losing season.Â And I say if we’re going to pull for Wake in football we need to lift up their basketball too.Â Wake is a Baptist school and they are trying toÂ do the right thing and ifÂ you let them they can help you turn your priorities around and the Deacons can get you a new lease on life.Â How is that for a good sermon today and I know all of you need it brothers.
In other good news Appalachian State crushed Coastal Carolina and they will face Montana State in round twoÂ of the D I-AA playoffs, now called the College Football Championship.
In the news you don’t want to report column, N.C. State fell like a ton of horse manure in the last game of the Chuck Amato era to the up-and-coming East Carolina Pirates.Â ECUÂ is back with Holtz-lite running the show and speaking of running the show how about the offensive show with Duke falling to North Carolina 45-44, or was it theÂ “No Defense Bowl”. I feel bad for Bob Harris the “Voice of the Blue Devils”, who had to sit through that 0-12 season.
In theÂ “I think theÂ sports world must be coming to an end department”.Â I was at the Guilford College JVÂ vs. Patrick Henry Community CollegeÂ basketball game Monday night at Guilford and one of the PHCC players who wasn’t dressed out but was sitting on the PHCC bench had a cell phone in his hand and was talking on it while the game was going on.Â SITTING ON THE BENCH TALKING ON THEÂ CELL PHONE DURING THE GAME.Â That kid should have been kicked out ofÂ the gym by his coach and forced to find his own way back to PatrickÂ County, Virginia.Â I don’t care if the dude had to walk back to ‘ole Virginny, the coach should have kicked him out of the gym and booted him off of the team, CASE CLOSED.Â Â Show some respect for your team and the game and take your stinkin’ cell phone outside.
The Guilford College varsity, led byÂ big Ben Strong, plays Greensboro College tonight(Wednesday)Â at the Greensboro Coliseum inÂ a local hoops battle, and UNCG destroyed WoffordÂ at Flemming Gym on Monday night.Â Â Â Â
