Wake Forest 45, Clemson 17: The aftermath

Well, here goes the media bloodletting. It makes me sick just to post this mess.

GAME STORIES: "Wake routs Clemson," says the Anderson Independent-Mail; "Wake zaps Tigers," says the Greenville News; "Deacs crank up heat on Bowden," says The State; "Deacs maul Tigers," says the Winston-Salem Journal.

THE STATS: Here's a complete statistical summary of the game.

OTHER STORIES: Here's where it gets interesting. Bart Wright of the Greenville News says Clemson football is now officially irrelevant. Jon Solomon of the Anderson Independent-Mail describes a team that is lost.

The Greenville News nicely captures the anger of the fans. The State looks at the costly turnovers that doomed the Tigers. The Greenville News examines the big day that Wake Forest running back Chris Barclay had.

And finally, The State has the quarter-by-quarter highlights, grades the keys to victory and the high five thingee.

NOTEBOOKS: The State; The Greenville News; The Anderson Independent-Mail.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: N.C. State edged Virginia, Maryland crushed North Carolina, Florida State blanked Notre Dame, and Duke hung tough at Tennessee before losing.
