"It was a great call," Thomas said. "It may have been the call of the night. You've got to give it up to the offensive line. The passing game wasn't working too well, so we really had to lean on the run game, and they opened up a great hole and made it easy for me."
Wake Forest had seen Pete Thomas before, Last year Thomas was the starting quarterback for NC State and completed 27 of 43 passes for for 257 yards but the Deacs prevailed 28-13.
Thomas got a little revenge Thursday night.
"He was walking into a place where a pretty prolific quarterback just left the program." ULM head coach Todd Berry said. "I told him going in let’s take care of the football, and every thrown doesn’t have to be a completion or a bullet. Let’s make some good decision. I thought he handle those things pretty well.
As for Wake Forest the beginning of the Dave Clawson era looks a lot like the end of the Jim Grobe era, poor offensive production.
The Demon Deacons could only total 94 yards of total offense, -3 yards rushing for the game.
True freshman quarterback John Wolford was running for his life the entire game and was sacked seven times by the Warhawk defense. He completed 12 of 22 passes for 97 yards.
"We didn’t play very smart but obviously we got nothing going offensively." Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson said. "We didn’t block, get open and had no explosive plays on offense other than the one third down.”
It looks like a long year for Deac fans.
