When your team finishes in 12th place in a 12-team league during your first two seasons on campus, your third year is pretty important.
The Demon Deacons have gone 8-24 and 13-18 so far under Jeff Bzdelik. Ouch!
Bzdelik's predecessor, Dino Gaudio, got canned after three years, two of which saw WFU win at least 20 games and make it to the NCAA tournament.
On March 23, 2012, Collegebasketballtalk's Rob Dauster spoke of "the implosion of the Wake Forest program" under Bzdelik's watch:

Jeff Bzdelik has had a tough first two seasons in Winston-Salem. The only way that he survives this season is to win at least 20 games and make it to some type of post-season play.
