As Much as we would like to build up Wake Forrest being good average is an at best true description.


Sep 26, 2022, 4:09 PM

Mostly Scrubs with a decent QB and receiver shouldn’t be challenged well into a game. Should be able to easily win off fundamental basic football.

The big lesson from Wake is stopping a good QB with capable WR’s.


Sep 26, 2022, 4:14 PM

The team needs to continue work on improving in this area. The secondary was a liability and has been all season. Having starters out magnified this problem. Luckily the offense seems to have come together and pulled out a victory for the Tigers ! A playoff caliber opponent will exploit this all day long ! It’ll be the West Virginia Orange Bowl, Part Two !

So I’m gonna go with you really don’t understand average. There are 131 teams that in NCAA division football. They are nowhere close to average. If if you think their ranking is overblown they still aren’t average. You’re trying to use a word with a specific meaning as a colloquialism aspersion. Again, it doesn’t make sense to mangle language with the only intent being to insult Clemson.

You used the word “average” and you won’t acknowledge that you’re wrong. Then you say some nonsense about not running loose on Alabama. When is that last time anyone ran loose on Alabama. I think it was a CFP championship game by Clemson. That’s a little more than average - which is the standard you choose to use. Wake Forest is ranked in the top 18% of college football teams. That’s not even close to average. If you’re gonna display the intellect of a coot how about go pull for them too.

“Week 4 Top 18% ? That’s not a powerful football team it’s average”


The statistician in me is hurting very much right now…

To be fair, I get your point. Wake Forest isn’t a world beater class team. But to be technical, they are better than an average team. Average means they are somewhere between the 60-70th best team in CFB. Even the most critical statistical metrics I’ve seen of WF puts them in the 30-40th bracket.

How would you judge the 2016 nc state team? Clemson beat them in overtime and they only finished the season 7-6. My point being I don’t care if you’re Bama, Georgia, Clemson, or Duke you’re going to have struggling weeks and great weeks during the season. Is Kent state truly only 17 points worst than Georgia. Hel no they’re a 1-3 small school. And is Georgia trash because they only won by 17 this past weekend? Also wake has one of the top offenses in the country. Their qb, receivers and oline are very talented veterans and we had to defend them with true freshman corners. They found our weakness last week and went after it until we drop our safeties back to help.
With all that said wake has a top offense and an average defense but overall their offense makes them a top team. Look at the 2011 clemson team that won the ACC and 10 games. We had a elite offense but a trash defense but we were still a solid team. Anyways GO TIGERS!!!

Wake Forest in an excellent team, not because they are loaded with highly recruited star players, but because they redshirt just about all of them and develop them over the years ...... much like all good teams used to do. Basically, we had a bunch of sophomores and juniors playing against five and six year veterans. They do not have great depth, but the are a good football team that will give jusabout anyone trouble.

I am late to the party, but this Tiger Guitar boy is as dumb as a pile of rocks.
I wonder if this little boy has even followed the game of football and especially this season. Georgia and Bama have looked really below par and especially the Bulldogs the past couple of weeks. Wake has an average defense, but their offense is really good and way above average. Hartman is like those BYU guys and about 28 years old and been there forever and they have outstanding receivers with a really good OL.
If guitar boy was a scout he’d be employed by the NY Jets or completely out of work because he reads as a complete and absolute moron. With 131 d1 teams average would be 60s or 70s and Wake is definitely a top 15 team, ya clueless wonder.
