2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Push'
Few head coaches in the country did more with less than Jim Grobe over the past decade. But Grobe has bowed out and new head coach Dave Clawson is looking to parlay his success at Bowling Green into some ACC W's.
I wouldn't expect it to happen this year.
Wake Forest has just eight starters back from a team that won just four games last season. They are completely inexperienced at the offensive skill positions and they have a whole new front four. They are also learning new systems on both sides of the ball and there will certainly be growing pains.
Wake has it easy out of the gate. They should be favored in three of their first four games and a road trip to Utah State could be winnable. However, once ACC play begins this team will have to pull an upset to get its fourth or fifth victory. I can see them sneaking up on a team like Syracuse or Boston College. But I don't see Wake notching any league road wins this year.
I feel that 4.0 is a very solid number for the Demon Deacons and I see them winning exactly that many games. If your book does offer a number at 4.5 or 3.5 I would bet the Deacons accordingly.
