    I don't care anymore, but as a general principle, any ACC (or other P5) coach who loses to Houston Baptist and Gardner Webb in the same season should be relieved of their duties immediately. That's just a matter of basic competence and institutional pride. As others have said, if WFU doesn't give a shit about basketball, why should I? I give my money to the law school, which at least gives the appearance of being a first class program.

    No, but I really would like to again. I know it was painful at times when we were good and have the crazy loss or the disappointment to end the season, but I would go back to that in a heartbeat over what weíve got now.

    I still care, but not all that much. [name redacted] left me exhausted, and it is no longer worth the effort to follow the team other than just casually.

    Wellman had the culture/socks thing to cling to as an excuse with redacted. What does he have with Manning? I donít hear a regular excuse. Maybe Wellman doesnít have one.

    I've generally lost interest in watching other folks over about 16 years old play ball sports. It's 100% about the money and that pretty much takes the fun out of it for me.

    i can't think of a single ACC school, besides wake of course, where Manning would still be the head coach in year five with these results. i have no way of knowing for sure - just looking at past coaching changes at State, GT, BC, etc.

    60-78 record
    23-49 ACC record

    holy shit

    It's reached the point where I don't even know when or who we are playing. I did watch a bit of the Tennessee game but only because it was on at the same time as our bowl game and I would check it out during commercials.

    I haven't paid any money to go to a WFU basketball game since 2010. I would go if someone would offer me free tickets and a parking pass. But the past couple of seasons, I haven't even done that.

    Basically, Wellman, Bz, and Manning have caused me to care so little about Wake b-ball that I won't even go see them for free.

    even pros?

    I care about the program a lot, but a few weeks ago I decided not to watch this team any more this season. It's simply not worth the anger and frustration.

    I am pretty shocked that a coaching change hasnít been made at this point. Last year was frustrating because we could have won so many games we lost. This year is flat out embarrassing.

    Yeah, they should all just play for free for your enjoyment. Maybe you just don't like sports like you think you do.

    I would have been shocked if anything proactive were done. Wellman will have to be dragged kicking and screaming to admit his failure.

    I have no idea what year it will happen.

    There is nothing positive about the program and Manning does not even seem to realize there is a problem.
