Actual bowl reps talking about Duke in the Charlotte Bowl (whatever it's called now) is a bit crazy.

lol Boone... elite college athlete who played an incredible game Saturday, except he was 0-2 in attempting to jog across the field without falling flat on his face. Everyone has their flaws.

Literally every game on the remainder of the schedule is the most important duke football game in two decades.

That's why I was insisting that the UVA game is so important. Sets the team up for the kind of support that they haven't felt in a long, long time. Hopefully they're also getting comfortable winning games. Sounds weird, I know.

LOL, so glad this was clarified for me. I looked back on the field at one point and I see him getting off the ground while he was on his way to the huddle. I didn't know if he was doing push ups or what.

Hopefully this actually comes to fruition. Attendance seems to be surprisingly inelastic to performance.

Chib, I was worried that he had gotten a concussion when he busted his *** coming from the huddle. He'd just gotten rocked by a head shot on a run, and Renfree had put his helmet on and come over to the huddle like he was going to have to come in. Apparently he's just not good at running short distances without falling over, though.

the board looks great. Fired up to be 5-1. Apprehensive about being 39-1 versus our remaining schedule in last few years.

I now remember being worried about a possible concussion as well. It was just strange looking back at the field and seeing him picking himself up off the ground.

Awesome new board. Thanks to the guys who made this happen. On topic, I talked to Walt Canty today and congratulated him on the win and asked him if we were gonna be playing some December football... He said that we were, and unlike in past years when I've talked to him, he didn't just sound hopeful, he sounded very confident as if he knew it was 100% gonna happen. I love seeing these guys walk around campus with that type of confidence. Everyone was saying how much better they looked during the pre-season, and they haven't backed off of their bowl expectations coming into the season one bit, even after the Stanford game.

In my four years working for the team we went 2-9, 1-10, 0-12, and 1-11. We've won more games this year than in my whole four years. Cut for president.

I remember going to home games during those years berto...I would be pretty excited if we were within 2 TDs going into the fourth quarter. This has been an incredible turnaround, and I think we're finally getting some real ACC-level talent into the program (Duncan, Powell, Crowder and Boone are all going to be studs for the next two+ years in my opinion). I hope we can capitalize on this start and win some recruiting battles this year too.

If Duke gets to a bowl on top of the renovations, then we should have some sexy recruiting momentum going into the spring.

8-4 (last 2 losses before bowl: Sat, Nov 12 N.C. State * 19 - Raleigh, N.C. 23 - 24 (L) Sat, Nov 19 North Carolina * 25 - Durham, N.C. 40 - 41 (L)). IIRC, we were beating State 20-0. We were leading UNC in a back and forth awesome game until OCtavius Barnes scored on a late 70 yarder. We missed 69 yard FG as time exipred

3-8

0-11

It's still confusing to me when we don't rush the field at the end of every home win. I realize that it doesn't make sense to do that against Memphis these days, it's just force of habit.

Earlier today, Duke received its first AP poll votes since the end of the 1994 season when John Silver of the Journal (Conn.) Inquirer ranked them No. 23. I had a chance to catch up with John via email and phone, and he explained his reasoning.

Shadow staff! Forgot about that madness. If southfloridadevil is allowed to post here. I am out. Funny that TDD protected the serial Fire cut, stanford-only discussions, and banned me dozens of times for defending the team/coach. I am still committed to revenge against certain moderators.

He'll never live down the Asack/linebacker comments. He PM'ed me with further silliness once or twice. What a strange vibe they created over there.

He has a lot to live down, but doesn't seem that there is any recognition or contrition for his multitude of inane nonsense. I kept some of the gems.

Back in October 2010, SFD was projecting (hoping?) Duke would go 1-11, and wrote "I think this depends on how long we suffer with Cutcliffe, if this, such as 1-11 this season, is how this pans out .... I think you are quite right to question whether if Cut bombs, might the school reconsider its support Football, or might the school consider joining the Big East, going independent, and or dropping Football. I think any of these are possibilities." This was passed off as a legitimate, rational argument.

He started/hijacked dozensof threads promoting Zack Asack over Thad Lewis. Then he posted dozens of times promoting Paulus over Thad. SFD said that no NFL scouts thought Thad would make it in the NFL. Then he was also promoting Connette as better than Renfree.

However, if anyone called SFD the moron that he is, they got banned by the aGDevil.

I'm still not convinced SFD isn't related to Asack, if he's not Asack himself.
