Busy week at Wake for this grad student, but I did take the time to find some links for you guys...

"Wake Forest is my number one choice. I've committed to Wake Forest. That's where I'm going." "I feel really comfortable with the Wake coaching staff. I talk to Coach (Steve) Russ on a consistent basis. I talk to him about once a week. We talk about my games. We talk about Wake Forest games, and we talk about life."

"Dom gets really cranked up," Grobe said. "You kind of need guys like that, that makes it more fun." Midgett’s participation and contributions against Maryland were certainly enough to turn heads of his teammates. But he said he was in no rush to get in the last word. "I don’t know about brag," he said. "I haven’t made enough tackles yet."

Deacons brace for bedlam
"I told them there's nothing that you can do to prepare for that," Midgett said. "You can sit in your car, roll your windows up, play loud music and try to talk to the person beside you -- and drive at the same time. "My true freshman year (2005) I got to travel to Nebraska and that was loud. It was ‘like, wow' loud. Then I went to Clemson and that was louder. You're sitting right next to the (defensive) coordinator and he's trying to tell you something and you can't even hear him. "I'm trying to relay the message to my young guys that you won't be able to hear."

Arena's goal lifts Deacons to win
Freshman Anthony Arena scored the only goal of the match and No. 5 Wake Forest defeated the College of Charleston 1-0 last night. After a scoreless first half, Wake Forest applied continues pressure on the Cougars (7-7) for most of the second half. Arena's goal came off a corner kick from Austin da Luz in the 58th minute.

As an athlete, she has made her mark in soccer and will leave Wake Forest as one of the top goal-scorers in school history, if not the career leader. Heading into Thursday's ACC match at N.C. State, she has 32 goals -- she needs three to pass Sarah Kozey for the record.

"I can assure you, I don't override play calls and all that. I manage the game. I may say, hey, let's run it, or Billy, let's take a shot. But the game plan is done, and there's a call sheet, and you're not just randomly calling plays on a game day. "I make suggestions, but I'm not calling plays. I did a lot more of that last year. That's not where we are right now. I have an offensive coordinator and a defensive coordinator."

Swinney: No big changes needed for a Clemson win - Sports - The State
"Nobody wants to hear it, but two or three plays, and we're sitting here and it's a different circumstance," Swinney said, suggesting he team could easily be 4-1. "The unique thing about it, from my perspective is we'd still have the same issues."
