bretticus33 15 Welcome back Sam Hartman. Wake Forest's star QB came back and didn't look like he missed a beat. Wake with Hartman is a completely different animal and one of the best offenses in the country.

MWiatrak2077 20 I'd be lying if I told you that I've watched even a second of Wake football this season. This is meant as absolutely no disrespect to Wake, they're a great team, I just generally end up watching less ACC games than most other conferences. So, as far as any commentary I have to go off of, it's not much. They won a solid victory against a 2-0 Vanderbilt, 45-25, while star QB Sam Hartman notched 4 TD passes and 300 yards on the dot. Vanderbilt took an early 3-0 lead, however it never seemed in any actual danger, as Wake was never favored by less than 55% by ESPN at any point in this game, and quickly took a 21-10 lead at the half. Speaking as an outsider, the main few criteria I'm keeping an eye out for is: Can they run it back, or was 2021's success mainly because of super-seniors?; Sam Hartman had 44 TDs last season, can he match that total?; Wake faces Clemson, NCSU, NC, & 2-0 Syracuse this season, can they hang with the big guys, or is their team too thin to compete with the best of them? As of right now, per SP+, Wake currently has the 9th ranked offense, and Clemson has the 3rd ranked defense, a test of high flying offense v. lockdown defense will make September 24th a day to circle on your calendars.
nw____ 20 Hartman’s back. Looking as good as ever, too!

ikindalikelemons 21 I refused to rank Wake while the Sam Hartman situation was playing out because I believe the team's success hinges so much on him. Glad to have him back on the field.

Our-Gardian-Angel 23 Neutral fans were (understandably) excited about Vanderbilt's 2-0 start under new coach Clark Lea, but probably went a bit far with making them a trendy upset pick against Wake Forest. Dave Clawson and Co. put a halt to that and served a reminder to how far the program has come from what he inherited. (Week 2: Wake Forest 45, Vanderbilt 25; Record: 2-0)

Due_Connection179 23 Absolute love the Demon Deacons and very happy that their QB is back and healthy. Wins over VMI & Vanderbilt won't raise them much, but their next three games are against Liberty, #9 Clemson, and #25 Florida State. If they are 5-0 after October 1st, we could see some fireworks in this poll.
