The BEST ACC Basketball Coverage!!!

From the Arkansas Democrat Gazette: LIKE IT IS : The waiting is over; UA finds its man in Grobe
: "A University of Arkansas private fundraising arm approved a salary supplement Wednesday for Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, a strong indication that Grobe will replace Houston Nutt as coach." .....and this is why you can't trust ANY football coach. It's not a done deal yet but it's not looking good. ACC fans, remember this when you get attached to your coach: It's ALWAYS about the money and opportunity to do something "bigger." We feel for all of these Wake fans who want to desperately buy in to this notion of loyalty from their coaches and players who say "Wake is special...I'm not looking for anything else." Wake plays big time basketball and is now on the sidewalk for big time football and the recruits that come with it. Big time players and big time coaches are, 99% of the time, open to bigger and "better" opportunities. Never, EVER trust a thing that comes out of their mouths when it comes to staying at your school (Unless they have the tenure of Bowden, Williams (but only @ UNC and that's only if the Kansas job does not open back up and Dean is dead), K, Peterno, etc.). This is example #1. You will see example #2 once LSU finishes off Ohio State and, all of a sudden, Miles begins to have second thoughts.......
