Deacon Dump 11/5: Yay basketball! Talking GT

I really wish I could be at the exhibition game tonight, but at least Jake will be holding it down. We did a Q&A with From The Rumble Seat, so definitely check our answers out over there. Not a lot to say today, so here come the links...

Deacs have no margin for error
"That remains to be seen," Grobe said yesterday. "Our backs are against the wall. There's not seven or eight games left to make up. We've got to win. "But I think everybody's on point, knowing where we are. We're beyond the pats on the back for good tries."

"Talk about the pleasant surprises, he's really been one," Grobe said. "We liked him. We knew he could run. We knew he was athletic and those type things. "But for a freshman to step in and do what he's done has been pretty remarkable, really."

The Demon Deacons lost a ton of talent from last year, but with a returning nucleus of quality performers, Dino Gaudio may very well have the most versatile squad in the conference.

No more 'wiggle room' for Deacs - ACC - ESPN
"I think our guys, with some of the tough losses we’ve had, the danger is that even when you’re playing really good, you’re kind of expecting something to go wrong," Grobe said. "Although we’ve got some guys who have been a part of some pretty good football teams here, you still have a concern that, especially when you’ve lost so many games late like we have, that you start to wonder a little bit if you’re capable of winning. My guess would be our guys are not all caught up in that, but at the same time, we’ve had about six games go right to the wire and we’ve only won a couple of them. "We’re not in a very good mind frame right now, as far as losing those close games, but I’m proud of our kids. … We’re playing really hard, we just don’t have a lot to show for it."

Wake Forest to Host IUP in Exhibition Game - WAKE FOREST OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE
IUP looks to be formidable exhibition opponent, as the Crimson Hawks are ranked No. 6 in the nation in NCAA Division II according to The Sporting News. IUP was chosen as the preseason favorite to win the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference in a ballot of the league's head coaches.

ACC preview: Reloaded Heels hold edge on blue blood brothers - NCAA Division I Mens Basketball - CBSSports.com
I selected Al-Farouq Aminu as the preseason ACC Player of the Year because, quite simply, I just think he's going to be awesome. As I've explained many times, the 6-9 forward averaged 12.9 points and 8.2 rebounds last season despite not being a focal point of the offense and finishing third on the team in shots attempted. Now that Jeff Teague and James Johnson are gone, Aminu will shine. I'm not sure the Demon Deacons will win as many games, mind you. But I won't be surprised if Aminu averages something like 20 and 12.
