All is quiet right now. There's still two more days until the Deacs play BC. That's a lot of time to sit and think about it. And a lot of time for writers to discuss Wake Forest. Lots of news, and a couple interesting signing day profiles of individual recruits from their local papers. As always, let me know if you ever see a link that should be added to the dump. I'd love tips.

LinksLifeGolf has a terrific interview with Wake Forest golf coach Jerry Haas about Webb Simpson. This is a great read. Webb might be hot right now, but Haas has been saying this stuff about him for years. I had the privilege of covering the golf team for two years and speaking with Coach Haas on a regular basis and he one heck of a coach and an unbelievably great man. Webb's not too shabby himself. On that note, here's a video interview of Webb too.
Offensive line prospect Kalon Davis will be attending Wake Forest's junior day. According to ESPN.com, Davis is also considering Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Clemson, UNC and UAB. That's a pretty good list. At 6'5", 320, he'd be a big-time prospect for 2010.

Let's give Clemson a little love. Hopefully all the media attention after their win over Duke won't crash them like it did another team.
