Wake Forest Game Thread

Yes, the Pack is down 22-14 at the half. But I really don’t feel we are in serious jeopardy. Our offense has found its rhythm, and except for that last broken play, so has the defense. Prediction: 31-25, State.

Also, can somebody please replace these bozo announcers? Yes, Newby recovering Andre Brown’s fumble for the safety (instead of a Wake TD) seemed like a huge break at the time, as 2 < 7. However, when Wake took the ensuing free kick and turned it into seven more, it ceased to be a break. Last time I checked, 9 > 7. Yet both announcers repeatedly stated how much worse it could have been, in the leadup to the 3rd quarter. Idiots.

    I was thinking the same about those clowns repeating how big of a break that we got. It couldn’t have ended up much worse. Oh boy, 3rd and 16 coming up.

    I am in italy following this on espn gametracker it looks like state is getting dominated, where is the running game?

    15 yard penalty, but it saved 50+. It was a good call.

    Wake really has tightened up after first 2 TD drives.

    Our defensive front seven is wearing down. Time of possession will be critical. And this 3rd down is huge.

    I am hoping for a repeat of Wake’s last game. A missed 3 going into the 4th, and we are on the comeback trail.

    Big miss on the FG (hit the upright from 49). Still a one score game.

    Indiana beating Iowa, and Vandy beating UGA beween the hedges. Might be the day of the little guy. Still, I think we win. Good pass to Barrett.

    Wake was inches from a Pick Six there. Whew.

  11. Jamie 10/14/2006 at 2:26 PM #

    At least those clowns aren’t calling him “Blockman” anymore.

  12. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:27 PM #

    This drive giving our defense needed rest. Another near pick.

    Carolina sucks so bad!

  14. Jamie 10/14/2006 at 2:31 PM #

    But, but, I thought that USF was a bunch of bums. That’s what they all said after the car care bowl.

  15. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:31 PM #

    How big is Wake’s missed FG now?

  16. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:33 PM #

    Well, Furman did almost beat UNC. Not sure this validates the Bulls as much as it discredits the Heels. And puts the final nail in the (oversized) Bunting coffin.

    Here’s another huge 3rd down.

  18. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:37 PM #

    When was the last time you saw a reverse cut back to the middle and work?

  19. Jamie 10/14/2006 at 2:37 PM #

    Another WF reverse, another WF first down. I’m gonna grab a brewski and watch the rest.

  20. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:39 PM #

    GREAT defensive work. Will this be the turning point of the game, finally?

  21. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:42 PM #

    Damn, that’s a good kicker.

  22. Jamie 10/14/2006 at 2:42 PM #

    I hate that guy.

  23. Jamie 10/14/2006 at 2:45 PM #

    I love that guy!!

  24. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:47 PM #

    Can’t settle for 3 this time.

  25. BJD95 10/14/2006 at 2:48 PM #

    If you don’t press him, Evans will pick you apart.
