That looks incredible. Such a long way from when the players tunnel led out behind the bathrooms.

We used to accidentally urinate on opposing players on who were making their way to the field when utilizing the visitor-side troughs. They were already weary after walking from the Washington Duke fertilizer shed that we converted to a locker room.

A few years ago, Frank Creech, the artist behind all of the busts on campus and a former Duke football player, was approached by Roof about making a 15 ft tall Blue Devil statue to stand at the Gen Adm entrance near Cameron. I got to see some of the early sketches and it was incredible. Unfortunately, he passed away before the project advanced past the early phases.

I'm hoping that they do something similar again.

We want Miami to win this, I think.

1. Makes our win next week better.
2. Less chance UNC wins division.

I can, but I won't. But now that aiw knows you want him out, I wouldn't be surprised if he permabanes you.

This looks teed up perfectly. Even I am optimistic. Indiana has no talent advantage (unlike most Power 5 teams) and they are only here because they beat the rotting husks of Maryland and Purdue to end the year.

The only problem is that they score a ton of points and they throw a lot, which we don't do well with. I mean, they almost beat Ohio State and they should've beaten Michigan so it's not like they can be that bad.

I think we'd probably best off if it was a cold/bad weather day and the game was decided at the line of scrimmage. But I'm more optimistic than I was vs. Arizona State or Texas A&M.

Actually, they don't throw all that much. They're a run first team that's had to throw when they end up trailing in games.

They run the ball 56% of plays, 36th highest in the nation.
