Wake Forest's Grobe going back to roots

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- When all else fails, resort to confusion.

Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe just mustered the Deacs' lone touchdown of the game with the help of some single wing offense, what he used to run during his days at Ohio. On Wake's first and only scoring drive so far, the Deacs lined up with three backs, one of whom was wide receiver Devon Brown.

Brown's ability to carry the ball proved handy, as his two carries in the second quarter helped sustain the scoring drive to keep the Deacs within 10-7 and make this a game afterall. Brown's 8-yard rush up the middle Wake up on the two-yard line, and fullbick Mike Rinfrette punched it in on the next play.

It works for Paul Johnson, why not Grobe?
