FTRS: Does the victor of this contest really win anything? There will be minimal attention paid in the grand scheme of the ACC. Is it a building block? A confidence boost for next season? A recruiting tool?
Martin: I mean, I guess it matters to Wake Forest a little bit because losing at home…again…to another sub-.500 ACC team would really probably be the end of this year. The fans woke up a little bit to just how badly the Deacs have been playing after getting curb-stomped by Clemson on Saturday, ending in the Tigers’ first win at the Joel since the 1989-1990 season. A loss to Georgia Tech in Winston-Salem would just make things worse.
You guys need this win to build some confidence and get a little momentum. So that’s a selling point too. You are returning your top seven contributors (according to KenPom) next season and are projected to win four of your last six games, which would end in a five-win ACC season. That could help. But a loss to Wake Forest would really set that back.www.fromtherumbleseat.com
