    Eamonn Brennan

    In its fourth season under Jeff Bzdelik, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons men's basketball team is not quite the fan-alienating train wreck of seasons past, but it isn't very good, either. Wake Forest has scored 1.0 points per possession and allowed ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    The program that produced Tim Duncan, Chris Paul and an almost-yearly NCAA tournament apperance has fallen on hard times -- and Wake Forest fans haven't been quiet about it. But is anyone listening?

  4. Wake Forest sticks with Bzdelik

    Eamonn Brennan

    I feel a great disturbance in the Force - as if thousands of Wake Forest fans cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. Actually, scrap that last part. There will be nothing silent about it. For now, anyway. After a season of protests, a ...

  5. Wake Forest fans still not pleased

    Eamonn Brennan

    In December I wrote about the plight of the Wake Forest fan, first when the athletics department's radio partner decided to stop allowing callers into coach Jeff Bzdelik's radio show (because, as athletic director Ron Wellman put it to the Winston-Sa...

  6. Wake AD tries to smooth things over

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last week, Wake Forest radio announced it would discontinue the live call-in portion of its weekly coach's show with head coach Jeff Bzdelik. Athletic director Ron Wellman said the decision was made because fans had a tendency to "preach," and "this ...

  7. The agony of the Wake fan revealed

    Eamonn Brennan

    This morning, I wrote about the decision the Wake Forest radio show made to stop the live call-in portions of Jeff Bzdelik's weekly coaches show after a "particularly contentious" show last Thursday night. Now, for the first time in 17 years, the rad...

  8. Jeff Bzdelik's radio show not going well

    Eamonn Brennan

    Let's face it: The coach-hosted radio call-in show - the coach's show - is an anachronism. This in an age in which access to coaches and players is protected like Vice President Walden an important political figure on a television show that actually ...

  9. Paradise Jam Primer

    Eamonn Brennan

    Until Connecticut's opening day victory over Michigan State in Germany, there wasn't much reason to get excited about the 2012 Paradise Jam. And even after a gutty, fired-up UConn team showed us it's not ready to wither just yet, the P-Jam (which is ...

  10. Things are not going well at Wake

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's one thing to have an historically awful season. Hey, it happens. And it's one thing to lose a few players to transfer, or bad behavior, or the occasional 18-year-old mistake. That happens, too. The problem is when you combine the two -- when ...

  11. Brennan: Five observations from the week

    Eamonn Brennan

    Five observations from the week that was: 1. It's time, once and for all, to shelve the no-great-teams line. You've heard this before. You've heard it a lot, in fact. The line has been ubiquitous: "There are no great teams in college basketball th...

  12. Alec Burks' cooler head prevails

    Eamonn Brennan

    There was a chance, however small, that Colorado was going to lose its star freshman if it hired anyone other than CU associate head coach Steve McClain to fill the vacancy left by Jeff Bzdelik. Alec Burks, a projected first-round draft pick in 2011,...

  13. Bzdelik gets Wake recruits to stay

    Eamonn Brennan

    Barely a week since he was hired, Wake Forest coach Jeff Bzdelik already has the biggest win of 2010: Wake's recruits are going to stay. It was one of many reasons why Dino Gaudio's firing was so surprising. Before Wake Forest athletic director Ro...

  14. Wake Forest AD starts selling Jeff Bzdelik

    Eamonn Brennan

    Firing Dino Gaudio and hiring Jeff Bzdelik was always going to be a tough sell. Gaudio had three winning seasons in his first three years at Wake Forest. Bzdelik had three losing seasons in his first three years at Colorado. Gaudio came from the late...

  15. Wake Forest fans, meet Jeff Bzdelik

    Eamonn Brennan

    Who is Jeff Bzdelik, and what does he do? Wake Forest fans are probably wondering the exact same thing. The question -- a hackneyed reference to "Kindergarten Cop"; sorry, everyone -- probably sounds a little too harsh. Sure, as college coaches g...
