“The Triad’s Team” Wake Forest University got the job done by defeating the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday down in Jacksonville.Â The Demon Deacons are headed to the Orange Bowl on January 2, 2007 when the Deacs will have their second date with destiny as they meet Louisville for the Championship of Florida in Miami.
WFU now 11-2 after winningÂ the shocker over Tech 9-6Â areÂ your ACC Football Champions.Â The Deacs are the Freaks that beat the Ga. Teek Geeks and the Deacs did it by controlling the Ball, Reggie Ball, Ga. Teek’s QB.Â WFUÂ earned the victory on the strength of KÂ Sam Swank’s three big field goals andÂ LBÂ John Abate, QB Riley Skinner, and WR Willie Idelette all helped take the Deacs into the Promised Land of the Orange Bowl.
WFUÂ and the Deac “D” were able to keep Yellow Jacket receiver Calvin Johnson and his Wrecked Ramblers out of the end zone and now WFU will be underdogs again in their next game versus Louisville on Jan. 2.Â Go Deacs and Go ASU after their big win overÂ Montana State 38-17 this past weekend up in Boone.
It will be Boone again when Applachian State(12-1) meets Youngstown State(11-2) in the Division I-AA semifinals this Saturday.Â Youngstown State is the school whereÂ Ohio State’s Jim Kressel coached before he joined the Buckeye forces in Columbus,Ohio.
Speaking of Ohio State, it had to beÂ OSU vs. Florida for the National Championship.Â Who wanted to see OSU against Michigan in a re-match for the title?Â Michigan had their chance and they blew it.Â We don’t need to keep on watching re-runs of football games, just like we don’t need to see The Jeffersons every day onÂ the tele repeats.Â You need new blood and that’s what you’ve got with OSU VERSUS FLORIDA.
Sure the OSU-MICHIGANÂ game was close the first time around, maybe like 45-42 or 42-39, but who cares?Â Give me a new look with OSU-FLORIDA.Â Â Southern Cal andÂ Michigan both had their chances and they couldn’t get the jobÂ done.Â Â Would you want to see George Bush vs. Albert Gore for a second time?Â Bart SimpsonÂ says, “NO WAY MAN”.
WFU got the jobÂ done and that’s all that matters these days in the Triad, because we have a team and now let’s join forces with Ed Hardin and go support these fineÂ Baptists.Â Â Â Â
