College Football: Grobe a busy man
Associated PressWINSTON-SALEM ó Wake Forest doesn’t have a game this week, but coach Jim Grobe certainly had a busy Tuesday.
The coach of the 20th-ranked Demon Deacons spent the day going through what ESPN personalities have called the network’s “car wash.”
Grobe is spending the day at ESPN’s studios in Bristol, Conn., and is appearing on several of the network’s shows while he’s there.
The 2006 Associated Press coach of the year is scheduled to appear on shows including First Take, College Football Overdrive and College Football Live.
Grobe watched his Deacons beat Mississippi on a clutch, last drive to end a 30-28 win on Sam Swank’s 41-yard field goal with three seconds left.
Wake Forest secured the school’s 400th victory in the first home game since the completion of a $47 million, seven-story tower that houses luxury suites, club seats and the press box at BB&T Field.
“If the home-opening crowd wanted a good game, they got it,” Grobe said. “I think the guys did a good job of entertaining them.
