The Wake Forest Demon Deacons :)

And if we can beat VT at home Wednesday night, it could setup a 1 vs 2 matchup against Duke in Winston. What a great night that would be.

New Coaches poll

The rankings, released Monday, have Wake (16-0) pulling in 25 of the 31 first-place votes at stake, the other six going to the 16-1 Blue Devils.

If Wake beats Virginia Tech on Wednesday (ESPN2, 7 p.m. ET), it'll likely hold onto the No. 1 ranking entering its next game -- at home against Duke on Jan. 28 (ESPN, 7 ET).


And Clemson didn't drop after losing to Wake at home. Thats a lot of respect for Wake and Clemson.

Well I am being paranoid, but its college basketball and anything can happen. And Vasallo really lit us up last year.

Congrats to the Deacs. They deserve the ranking...Now comes the pressure of staying there! I've been on them for about a year now. I really felt that with what they had, and what was coming in, they had a shot to be really good.

In a way I wish this hadn't happened so early. But this should be fun to watch them defend it!

Well, we only have one game between now and the Duke game, so if we can beat VT at home, we will have at least kept it longer than we did last time. :)

But unlike the 04/05 Chris Paul led team, this one actually plays defense.

Yes. And unlike that team, it's not one player that's elevating the whole team quite in the way that he did.

Good for WF. That coach is doing great things there. Teague is amazing.

Thanks to expansion, if you guys do get another shot, it will be in the ACC tournament.
