Deacs Unveil 1/4-Scale Model of Suites

Wake Forest cut the ribbon on Deacon Tower, its one-quarter scale model of an actual press box and suites, Tuesday and gave tours to the media and fans.

Construction on the tower began in 2006 and it was built at a cost of $48 million. It's one of several renovations to Wake's Corporate Name Field.

"We're very proud of the facility," a Wake Forest spokesman said. "It's a great symbol of where we are as a football program."



The tower is 125 feet high and contains 22 suites for Wake football donors.

"Oh, it's so cute," Florida State fan Dora Speers said. "Look at the Deacs with their little suites. They have miniature chairs and everything. I just want to pinch their cheeks and take them home with me."

Speers was later informed the Deacons planned on hosting fans in the suites during football games. She gave a quizzical look, shook her head and then walked away.

"It's almost a to-scale replica of what we added to one of our end zones," Clemson fan Ronnie Natlee said. "I don't know if they were going for a scale replica of it or a one-fourth replica of our actual suites."



Wake's replica suites include a working press box as well as club seats for 628 Wake Forest fans to wait for basketball season with a false sense of entitlement.

The Demon Deacons kick off the 2008 football season at home against Baylor on Aug. 28.

I was unaware that Wake Forest had relocated the stadium to Waco, TX as part of their upgrades. Really, a curious decision as how a move to Waco could be viewed as anything other than a downgrade is difficult to fathom.

Jack Willis also knows the difference between intentional satire and an unintentional fuck up and would tell you not to equate the two. Also, Jack Willis loves the sex.
