Rough start to Week 6 for Wake Forest
By Heather Dinich
They haven't even taken a snap yet in College Park, and already the Deacs are playing from behind.
Wake Forest announced six players will be suspended for today's game at Maryland, including four starters. The Deacs will be without their leading tackler, linebacker Mike Olson, and second-leading rusher, Deandre Martin. This is devastating news, as it was a challenging game for Wake Forest to begin with, considering they have to play on the road, Maryland had a bye week to prepare, and Wake Forest was already without its top offensive playmaker in injured receiver Michael Campanaro. The numerous suspensions are also very uncharacteristic of a Jim Grobe-coached team. Discipline is usually never a problem, especially of this magnitude. We'll see if the Deacs can overcome it on the field against the Terps.
