beaten UGhey, VT, UNCheat and was ranked. They came out on the field like the Titans, really tight formation, kind of weird.

Clemson proceeded to beat them like a last place pony, maybe even a shutout. They crawled home humbled. For some reason, I think there is a similar outcome for the Fruits this week.

No state, just a feeling. Kind of like a CW gooch grab....

I remember that and laughed at them when they came out! I think Jay Venuto (sp?) was Wake's quarterback, though I have no idea why I remember the name.


Probably because you have that poster of him

That was a very odd looking season for Wake

They were 8-4, but the average score for the year was 20-24 against them. Some great wins, but no win was larger than 8 points.

Which year was it when the Weak players came out on the field and taunted our players coming down the hill? That didn't end so well for them either.

Wake was 7 - 1 coming in to that game...

their one loss was to No. 16 NC State (14 - 17)

Wake had previously defeated No. 12 Georgia (22 - 21), No. 14 UNCheat (24 - 19), and No. 13 Auburn (42 - 38).

Clemson dominated Wake that day enroute to a 31 - 0 beatdown.

Two weeks later, Wake would also lose to $CU 35 - 14.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Speaking of Wake Forest, I have in my possession a 1964 game program of the Wake-Clemson football game played in Winston Salem. The neat thing about this program is there is a picture of Brian Piccolo who was a senior running back at Wake the time.
