Devil Demons?



That's what Tom Gallagher called Wake Forest University's football team Tuesday during the Florida Cabinet meeting after Charlie Crist, who briefly paid football at WFU, noted his former team was headed to the Orange Bowl in Miami on Jan. 2. He also noted the presence in the audience of CFO-Elect Alex Sink, a WFU graduate and former WFU trustee.

""I'm real worried about the State of Florida with the Devil Demons taking over the entire state here?," Gallagher said.

Gallagher, a graduate of another ACC school, University of Miami, apparently confused the Duke Blue Devils and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

Quipped Gov. Jeb Bush, "Devil demons would be a bad name, I think."
