A friendly tip for those planning to tailgate in the parking lot of BB&T Field before Saturday's game against Duke.
Paradise, I'm sure, is looking especially idyllic to the Wake basketball team along about now.
Wake will have something for Clemson when the Deacons return here to Death Valley in two years. It would be foolhardy to look that far ahead and predict a Wake win, but I'd be willing to bet it will be a far more competitive game than Clemson's 33-13 victory today.
The most telling numbers on the box score of Wake's loss to Richmond tonight at Joel Coliseum was not the score (91-82), the number of Deacon turnovers (20) or even the Spiders' field-goal accuracy in the second half (57 percent).
Hunter Williams is a great Wake story that keeps getting better.
Hobe Collins, my father, attended what was then known as Western Carolina Teachers College back in the late 40s on the GI Bill and graduated with a degree in -- of all subjects -- mathematics.
Coach Dave Clawson believed in his heart, if not his head, that Wake could pull off the greatest upset in the program's history by knocking off fourth-ranked Notre Dame in South Bend today.

The best thing Wake can say about the month of October is it's almost over.
Dave Clawson was a man with a plan when he showed up to be Wake's head football coach before the 2014 season. It's a time-tested plan he found to work at Fordham, Richmond and Bowling Green.
Picking up where it left off last week at North Carolina, Wake was left to pick up the pieces of a jarring 35-17 loss to N.C. State today at BB&T Field.
Something tells me that a reader named Carl Holder of Clemmons is not the only person around who has this question about Wake's running game.
Tonight's 50-14 loss at North Carolina, notwithstanding, Dave Clawson clearly has Wake on schedule for a return to relevance in the ACC.
Watching the baseball playoffs (go Cubbies) these past few days reminded me of a question my good buddy Foggy T. Roberts once asked.
In a season or two when Dave Clawson has Wake back in the thick of things in the ACC -- as I remain convinced he will -- then maybe then he can concern himself with such mundane matters as aesthetics.
Folks around the Wake program know how badly Coach Dave Clawson wanted defensive end Duke Ejiofor back for last week's game against Florida State.
Brandishing a ground game that was nowhere to be found a year ago, Wake continued to make up ground on its ACC rivals today at wet, wind-swept BB&T Field.
Dave Clawson gets paid to win football games at Wake.
