If Wake Forest true freshman Joe Looney starts at left guard and Andrew Parker at tight end on Saturday against Miami, it will be the first time two true freshmen have started a game during coach Jim Grobe's tenure at Wake Forest.

Of course, Wake has to start the game with a formation that includes the tight end in order for that to happen, but if it does, it will be the first time since 2000, the year before Grobe and his staff arrived in Winston-Salem.

The Deacs had to replace injured center Trey Bailey (ankle) with Russell Nenon, and tight end Ben Wooster isn't making the trip because of an injured hamstring.
