This will be like Rudy where every player on Duke is Rudy.

Florida State margins of victory:

@Pitt - 28
Nevada - 55
Bethune Cookman - 48
@Boston College - 14
Maryland - 63
@Clemson - 37
NC State - 32
Miami - 27
@Wake Forest - 56
Syracuse - 56
Idaho - 66
@Florida - 30

Don't remember anything quite like this. Was Alabama last season like this? FSU is #1 on Sagarin by a large margin over Alabama. They may be one of the all-time great college football teams.

What happened at BC? Duke needs to study game tape to figure out how to keep it respectable like that.

Don't worry, Winston will get arrested this week, Duke will pull off the upset and be playing in a BCS bowl game. Team of destiny, believe!

My guess is it opens at FSU -22 and moves to -26 by game time.

This season, I mean I can't even think of the proper words to describe this year. You can even point to the Boone injury and imagine an undefeated or 11-1, top 15 Duke team playing in this game.

I'm sure you guys get it, but this might be the only time we ever see Duke in an ACC Football Championship game in our lives. We should at least treat it that way. And the epic bowl bid Duke is going to get as well.

Duke is going to knock off the #1 team in the country in 1 week.

Agreed Farmer. This has truly been a season to remember. I honestly think had Boone not gone down that we would have gone undefeated. This team is different with him in the game. I hope this becomes the norm and that Cut can do this on the regular. I will be telling my kids about this one day though.

I've already decided that I'm going to the BCS game that Duke plays in after winning next week.

I am definitely bowling it this year. How can I tell my future kid about Dukes season if I don't go to the bowl. I have no illusions of beating FSU but damn it would be nice.

So FSU only beat Florida 37-7. We could beat Florida right now so we should be able to make it respectable right?

Assuming the Winston case continues trending positively, I think FSU wins this without too much stress. This is a really good Duke team, but after the BC debacle, FSU turned a corner and began playing like the best team in the country.
That is all.

Oh I agree Jo but Florida is pretty bad this year. I am considering anything under 21+ points a win for Duke.

My guess: -20 FSU.

We should be able to keep it close in the first half and then they'll pull away in the second.

Seems like we get points in non traditional ways this year--taints, kick returns. If Duke can get a few non conventional scores, it might not be a total laugher. But FSU's defense is just stupid. It will be hard to run on them, and they are so fast on the edges. This will ultimately show us where the football program is.

Yeah, if we're relying on taint points then we still have a ways to go as a program.

Exactly how does one judge a taint? Cleanliness? Hair? Distance? Fragrance? Taste?

The Taint Fitness Function varies for every conference. It ends up being really complex and that's why the BCS won't factor it in. I think only the Beef 'O'Brady's Bowl uses it.

As torontoduke knows, in the CFL they go only by taste and it's really straightforward.

I love the hottest of hot sauces and the one time I ate at a Beef O'Brady's, I think i ate the hottest sauce I ever ate. Killed BW3 blazing sauce (my favorite). Maybe I was too drunk.

Seriously off-topic, but are you a fan of Blair's or Dave's Insanity sauces?

Seeing 29-29.5 as the spread now. Anything under 14 would be (1) amazing and (2) the smallest margin of victory for FSU all season.
