Welcome to Reactions from Twitterverse Volume 1, where I try to capture the pregame build-up, in-game emotion and post game reaction from assorted individuals' thoughts in 140 characters or less. This will evolve over time, so feel free to drop me some suggestions if you have them. In some places I'll add a bit of commentary, but many times the tweets speak for themselves.

YES after months the wait is over!CamoOUT vs. ClawsIN tonight at 7 on ESPNU! If you think you have something better to do than you're WRONG!— Ya Boy Stan Cotten (@NotStanCotten) August 28, 2014
Who else thinks Wake Forest is going down in flames tomorrow? Kolton Browning may now longer be at ULM but I still think Warhawks are better— Chris Childers (@ChildersRadio) August 27, 2014
Can't wait for the @CoachClawson era to begin, tonight, at Wake Forest. Spider fans still love you, Coach! Best of luck at WFU.— Ryan A. MacDonald (@PureAdrenRy) August 28, 2014
Really excited for Coach Clawson & staff to lead the Deacs on the field tonight... Had a chance to see those guys work- they GOT IT!— Alphonso Smith (@AlphonsoSmith2) August 28, 2014
Unfortunately, the game had to start at some point. The start wasn't so bad though thanks to Kevin Johnson.
#asexpected corner Kevin Johnson scores Wake's first points of the season off a blocked punt.— Kenny Beck (@kennybeckWXII) August 28, 2014
ULM punt is blocked by Donatell and Kevin Johnson grabs it in the endzone for a Deacon TD!!!!— Wake Forest Football (@WakeFB) August 28, 2014
It all went downhill from there, however.
In a game where both offenses absolutely stink it's a quality punter that's keeping #WakeForest strategically in it— ACC Sports (@ACCSports) August 29, 2014
Wake Forest has 7 punts and 9 completed passes.— Adam Rowe (@BlueDevilLair) August 29, 2014
Wake Forest has four first downs in three quarters at UL Monroe. Might be time for pre-emptive research on Florida State's total D record.— Patrick Stevens (@D1scourse) August 29, 2014
When Wolford had time, he wasn't too bad. A little love from his freshman counterpart here:
My boy John gonna be nice. Remember he's only a freshman— Mitchell Wilbekin (@Mwilbekin10) August 29, 2014
And the eye-opening stats continue:
Texas A&M ran more plays than Wake Forest had yards. (ht: @KyleFieldCanopy)— Mark Ennis (@MarkEnnis) August 29, 2014
As you might expect, the post game reaction was more sad than angry.
@BSD_RaJohnston Second longest drive of the night covered 16 yards. I just can't get over that stat. Only ONE drive of more than 16 yards.— Patrick Southern (@patricksouthern) August 29, 2014
If I ever write a song about heartbreak it will be about Wake Forest athletics not about a woman.— Alex Taylor (@TaylorMade_AT) August 29, 2014
I am still really excited about the Clawson era. Tonight just shows that it is a HUGE rebuilding process. Takes time and he deserves it.— Riley Johnston (@BSD_RaJohnston) August 29, 2014
In real assessment: Chubb, Kinal and Wolford played well. Matt James made some mistakes. Entire offensive line should be disappointed.— Riley Johnston (@BSD_RaJohnston) August 29, 2014
At least we can always blame it on Notre Dame though.
Wake Forest only scheduled ULM after the ACC went back on the nine game conference schedule idea. Thanks, Notre Dame. @BloggerSoDear— BC Interruption (@bcinterruption) August 29, 2014
