UNC fans refusing to admit ECU is good and the UNC is horrid...even after that first half.

Laura Keeley tweeted the AP story for the game from the N and O. They don't send the beat reporters on the road? Weird.

There is about a 14 percent chance that "12-1 ACC champion Duke" happens.

For comparison's sake, Pomeroy's favorite to win the 2014 basketball tournament (Arizona) had a 15.9% chance of winning.

Mercer had a 15% chance of beating Duke.

A win Saturday and that number should jump to about 21-22%

Those numbers are insane though. 87% to beat Syracuse and 94% to beat UNC can't be right.

My Duke football fandom is starting to be eerily similar to the early years of my Duke basketball fandom. After Duke starting playing really well under K, I would get so anxious before games, waiting for Duke to be exposed as a fraud. It's the same way with football now. It's so hard to believe how many W's are piling up, and I look at the schedule and see three winnable home games between us and another title game. I'm so anxious before games now because the games actually matter.

I hardly even pay attention to the basketball program because I know that they are going to be good, but I also know that Duke basketball has peaked and that anything that's good or special that happens from here on out is just gravy.

I did some research on what Duke is doing well to find these wins

Kelby and Braxton granted sixth years of eligibility. I doubt Duke would have looked into this if it was not the player's intentions to come back next year.

Huge for 2015

LBs will be very good with Brown and Humphries. TE's will be great with Braxton, Petite and Reeves. RBs are just stacked with Wilson, Powell, Duncan, Ajeigbe, and possibly Hines. DBs will be top 2 in conference. OL will be very good though a step back from the elite status they occupy this season. QBs will probably good because Cut.

WRs and DL are the question marks. I have faith in both units though.

I think WRs will be fine. Obviously losing Jamo is huge, but Terrance Alls and Chris Taylor may be able to step in and produce. Also, it's a position where a freshman can come in and be productive.

DL - let's hope that some of the redshirting has paid dividends in the past few years. As long as we continue bending and not breaking, I think we should be ok until we play run heavy teams.

Conner to the NFL would help. Any thoughts on Cash staying vs. entering early?

You think Humphries will play LB? Rowe and John have been projecting him at Strike.

I do think we'll miss Tomlinson massively. Not because our backups are bad, just because he's so absurdly good. I've started rewatching our games just watching him recently, because it's so fun. He doesn't just win his matchups, he dominates them to an almost absurd extent. Cofield has quietly developed into a really good LT, too, and I'm not really sold on Stone yet.

BTW, Conner is a sophomore, so we'll have the pleasure of seeing him again next year.

Strike is a hybrid OLB/S role so I included him there

Jameis Winston's student conduct code hearing has been postponed until a date between the end of FSU's regular season and the ACC Championship game. The dream is real.

Pretty bummed about the VT game, but, for the second straight year, all comes down to UNC. I am going to assume we'll beat Wake.

Duke is a 6-point favorite vs UNC. I don't know what kind of person would tie real money to Anthony Boone throwing a football in the most important Duke football game of all time. Might as well start a small fire in your house that takes 3 hours to burn it down.

Basically.

We're going to find out what kind of leadership we have on this team. A well led team will use the kind of loss on Saturday as focus.

Line steady at 6. I feel terrible about this game though. I think Williams is going to slice us up. Who will spy him?

The usual, line down to 5 for Duke vs UNC. Probably drops to 4 by kickoff.

I think the line always starts high in Duke's favor because people believe there is some chance Cutcliffe goes with Sirk as the starter, but as the game gets closer, people realize it's not going to happen.
