Chris Paul Elected President of NBA Players Association (NBPA)

He replaces Derek Fisher. Way to go CP3!!! A Wake Forest winner who continues to remind us what success looks and sounds like.

Defense holds upper-hand in first scrimmage

"I was very pleased with the defense," said Grobe. "I thought the defense played faster than the offense today. I thought the offense was kind of walking on egg shells a little bit. I think it will be a great teaching day for us. I think there were some mistakes made out there on both sides of the ball but more on offense than defense."

Lobotzke to handle all facets of the running game

After evaluating last season, head coach Jim Grobe decided to shift some of his coaches responsibilities this season in order to better suit the current make-up of the team. Assistant coach Steed Lobotzke will oversee running backs as well as fullbacks and tight ends while associate head coach Billy Mitchell will handle the kicking aspect of special teams.

Tyler Cavanaugh Story

I wrote an article about Tyler Cavanaugh and his former high school teammate (current Syracuse student-athlete) DaJuan Coleman. This article was featured as the cover story in a Jamesville-DeWitt (Cavanaugh's hometown) community magazine. I thought I would share it here in case anyone was interested in reading it. Feel free to tell me I suck. I appreciate the feedback.

MTOW- Harris in Limbo

The Winston-Salem Journal's Dan Collins weighs in on the Joshua Harris situation. Harris awaits word from the NCAA on whether he will be eligible for his senior season.

ACC Hoops Transfer Lists

Jim Young combed's comprehensive transfer list and compiled the ACC's figures. Not that this teaches us anything we don't know - Jeff Bzdelik can't recruit or coach at the ACC level - but at least we can read about other ACC programs and see how they're doing. #WellmanOut #BuzzOut

MTOW: Can Grobe Stop the Slide?

Dan Collins takes a quick look at the Wake Forest football team and makes a statement that is sure to raise eyebrows (especially those of the Fresh Deacs): "In days to come, I'll be mulling other key questions going into the season. For now, I'll just say that if the defense isn't one of the best in school history than I've missed the boat on a lot of players."

Eamonn Brennan Writes: Will the Demon Deacons Ever Wake Up?

Ron Wellman still tone-deaf to Wake Forest alumni/fans: "The relationship between the Wake Forest athletics department and the Wake Forest fan base has never been quite so acrimonious. The U.S. Route 52 billboard that called for the firings of both athletic director Ron Wellman and coach Jeff Bzdelik earned a lot of attention when it was unveiled this spring, but that was just the latest salvo. In December, when callers to Bzdelik's weekly radio show grew increasingly critical, the show stopped taking direct questions for the first time in host Stan Cotten's 17-year career. At the time, Wellman told longtime Winston-Salem Journal beat reporter Dan Collins he agreed with the change because "callers tend to get on and, rather than asking a question, they preach." In the following weeks, Deacons fans felt newly insulted by Wellman's insistence that smaller crowds at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum were the norm, because the program had "never drawn well in December." Now fans seem as eager to be rid of Wellman -- the longest-tenured athletic director in the ACC (he began in 1992) -- as they are Bzdelik. How did the atmosphere get so toxic? For his part, Wellman refuses to accept the premise."

New Wake Forest Helmets?

New Wake Forest Helmets. I usually am a big proponent for the All White uni's but I just can't be a fan of the ones shown.
