The crew at BSD has been away for the week, so apologies for no information and articles here, but we hope to reciprocate with the Wake Forest pre-season football practice schedule here. It kicks off tomorrow morning at 9:45 at the Doc Martin practice facilities, and it cannot come a minute sooner.
The Road to the Orange Bowl starts tomorrow for the Deacs, and we will hopefully replicate the success of 2006. Hard work pays off, and kudos to the guys on the team who sacrifice so much to the game and Wake Forest University.
Reports will be posted as they come in, and as my schedule permits me to get out there.
