12 Days of ACC Football: Wake Forest

Aug. 18, 2010

In preparation for the 2010 football season, the Atlantic Coast Conference will unveil the "12 Days of ACC Football" beginning on August 16th. The teams will be unveiled each midday through August 27 based on predicted finish and alternating divisions, first Atlantic, then Coastal. Once again this year, each team's preview will be written by that school's RepresentACC.com Campus Correspondent. Each team page will also include a preseason video and preview information. Today's feature is Wake Forest.

Coming off of its first losing season since 2005, Wake Forest's 5-7 (3-5 ACC) record last season didn't exactly measure up to the championship standard Jim Grobe has set in Winston-Salem. In the midst of what seems to be a rebuilding period for the Demon Deacons, Grobe will have a host of issues to address entering the 2010 season. The most pressing of which is certainly replacing record-breaking quarterback Riley Skinner - especially considering that none of his potential replacements have attempted a pass in a competition.

Aside from that, this article addresses both the optimistic and problematic issues aspects of the Demon Deacons' 2010 campaign.
