Wake Forest thinks it owns the Sunshine State
Offensive coordinator Steed Lobotzke tweeted out a picture to inform followers—and potential recruits—that Wake Forest owns the state of Florida, calling the Sunshine State "Deacon Country."
Yes, the Deacons have 28 players on their roster from the state of Florida (which is not too far away from North Carolina in the first place). But of those recruits, only 15 were rated as high as a three-star prospect (247Sports).
Nine were given two-star ratings, while three were unrated. None were four or five stars, and the 2010-2013 class never finished better than 10th place in the ACC for Team Recruiting Rankings.
To scrutinize even further, Wake Forest is 2-5 vs. Florida teams since 2008, losing by an average score of 29-16. The Demon Deacons are 19-30 over the last four seasons and missed the postseason in 2012.
