Projected finish: 5-7, 3-5
Outlook: The 2011 Demon Deacons look to rebound from one of the toughest seasons in the Jim Grobe era. With a difficult schedule ahead, Wake Forest needs quarterback Tanner Price must step up and lead an offense that returns a seasoned offensive line. Defensively, All-ACC performer Kyle Wilber returns to a squad that was burned in 2010 but will move to linebacker as the Demon Deacons make the transition to a 3-4 defense. Expect WFU to be improved over 2010 but it could still be a difficult season for the Demon Deacons.
