College Football: The North Carolina-Wake Forest Situation Points The Way Forward

For the University of North Carolina (and, for that matter, Wake Forest University), this is supposed to be basketball season, a time of year when sports news focuses on the true religion of the Carolinas. Yet, the Tar Heels and the Demon Deacons have raised a few eyebrows in the province of pigskin with an unorthodox move that is both wise and absurd at the same time. TSS contributor...

UNC-Wake Show How Mega Conference Can Be Too Big

UNC-Wake Forest may not be a well known nationalrivalry, but it is very important to the schoolsinvolved.   I like the fact that Syracuse, Notre Dame and Louisville are now in the ACC.  I like the fact that the ACC was proactive in the conference realignment game.  However, I'm not a fan of the mega-conferences and the wreckage they've left behind.

Wake Forest showing progress in Danny Manning's 1st season

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Danny Manning isn't into moral victories. His first Wake Forest team has given him a few of them anyway. The Demon Deacons (9-9, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) have played unexpectedly close in losses to then-No. 5 Louisville, then-No. 2 Duke and Syracuse. That's given them perhaps the most encouraging 1-4 start to league play in ACC history. But now with...
