A few Notes about today

• Wake’s coach is Steve Forbes. If you don’t know what Steve Forbes looks like, picture going to a Peter, Paul, and Mary reunion concert (obviously you were kidnapped or you are on drugs in this hypothetical). He looks like what one of those three (Mary, inclusive) must look like, 50 years after their peak hippiedom.

• Wake, designed to teach both Baptist ministers and laymen, opened on February 3, 1834, as the Wake Forest Manual Labor Institute. Students and staff were required to spend half of each day doing manual labor on its plantation. This was a huge recruiting disadvantage vs schools that had no manual labor requirement*

*I seem to remember writing something similar, possibly in a past Game Notes, possibly in my combined History/Econ thesis (Title: School Origins and its Effect on Recruiting). I’m too lazy to look it up, but it is certainly sufficient to note that it’s as relevant today as it was when I first wrote it.

• Wake has a freshman named Cameron Hildreth, who is from Worthing, England. Cameron Hildreth is a very English sounding name, and as such, I dub him Cameron Hildreth, First Viscount of Worthing, Lord of the Forrest of Wake. He’s a good player by the way, and not just for a white guy from Worthing, England- even when judged as an actual commoner

• Notable faculty at Wake includes Anthony Atala, the director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, is considered a national pioneer in organ growth. As a consequence, Wake claims to have some of the largest organs in the ACC (hahahahahaha)

• I will be attending this game, which marks my first appearance at JPJ since February 2020. Stop by and say hello. I am the one in the Virginia hat.
