[SUPER=03-Winston-Salem, NC; :00]

Wake Forest has had two straight winning seasons and a bowl win under Jim Grobe, and that's good enough for him to land a ten-year extension. Grobe was 7 and 6 this past season.
Tennessee was 8-and-5 with a loss in the Peach Bowl, so Volunteers coach Phillip Fulmer gets a one-year extension and his deal now takes him through the 2009 season, but no raise of his one-point-six-five million dollar salary.

The newlyweds left the rink to a "hockey stick salute" and afterwards the groom and his team slapped the puck around while the guests mingled and ate. (------------)
