Deacon Blues

For the first since the '92-'93 season, Wake Forest starts the ACC season 0-2, falling 74-73 in overtime at Clemson. Being a season ticket holder, I'm afraid I saw this coming. The inconsistency of the Deacs' backcourt play has shown all along. Too many turnovers, not enough pounding the ball inside to Eric Williams and I can't even bring myself to discuss the points left at the foul line. The '92-'93 Deacs reached the Sweet 16, but that team had a couple guys named Rogers and Childress. The '05-'06 team doesn't lack heart and should provide some good moments this year, but there will be ugly struggles between them.
