MP, I think they will be a Top 10 D this year. Last year was a abberation. Cosgrove totally whacked them out of synch with a new defense. The Blackshirts were a Top 10 D in 03 and they had most everyone back from that defense last year. There's no other way to explain their collapse-sp last year. Most of the malcontents who didn't buy into the new way of doing things were booted or left the team after last season. They shouldn't have been as bad as they were... yet they were. Wake Forrest has a good running game. I believe 11 th in the nation last year. William Andrews(Pro Bowl RB with the Falcons in the late 70's early 80's) kid Micah ran for 254 yrds last week. And he's not even their starting RB. Their #1 guy was suspended last week but will play tomorrow. If we can hold them under 140 total yrds on the ground the Blackshirts will of had a good day. Good barometer for them tomorrow.
We'll see. Tune in to TBS tomorrow night and have a look see.
