Wake average class the past 4 years, per the 247 composite is 65th. They have like 2 4*s on their entire roster. The talent disparity is absurd. So unless you think Clawson & Co are just astronomically better coaches than Dabo & Co. the game shouldnt be a struggle.
Wake is 33rd in wins in the country. Much better than you acting like recruiting rankings are the be-all-to-end-all. There's a lot more to the game than recruiting rankings, and considering we're the 2nd beat team in the last decade should show you that plain as day.
In the last 4 years, Wake has six less wins than LSU, five less wins than Florida and Oregon, four less wins than Texas A&M, three less wins than Florida one less win than Wisconsin and Penn State, and equal wins to NC State.
Each and every one of those teams has better rated players than Wake, and in many cases its much, kuch more talent.
In the last 4 years, Wake has more wins than Texas, Auburn, Miami, Washington State, Mississippi State and Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Southern Cal, and Florida State .. just to name a few programs who absolutely have higher "recruiting rankings" than Wake.
Should we beat Wake? Absolutely. Should we just say , "recruiting rankings blah blah blah"? No, it doesn't work like that, obviously. Wake is a better football program than you're giving them credit.
At this point I just want to win. I don't care what the narrative is. Just when baby! With streeter and dabo trying to call please the days of us blowing people out are probably over with. From here on out a win is a win.
