Crist: Go Deacs!



He may have graduated from Florida State University, but GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist loves hyping his short-time link to a certain private college on Tobacco Road: Wake Forest University, where he was a walk-on football player before becoming a FSU Seminole. "I left blood on that field," Crist said last week to a Buzz reporter.

But he made his allegiance even more public Tuesday during the Cabinet meeting, when the attorney general asked for a moment to rave on the Demon Deacons' winning streak, "Demon Deacons are five-and-o, Governor."

Gov. Jeb Bush was a bit confused, "You're running for office in Florida?"

Full disclosure: One of Buzz's contributors is also a Demon Deacon.
