    duke football news

    Well I will take back a little of what I said. I reviewed 24/7 recruiting ranking 2016-2019. Every year Duke beat out BC by a significant amount. BC was last or close to last in the conference each year. Yet, we saw what happened last weekend. That has me shaking my head. BC did a lot better job...

    5 vs 5 Uncut

    Chris, I know what you mean. Except Jackson might have been a little more multi-talented! Who sees Goldwire on the Duke bench in a few years? Perhaps as an assistant to Coach Scheyer.

    I don't really blame Cut for the play calling as some of my brethren have. I think any play looks good when the OL blows the defense off the ball instead of the other way around. I don't expect trick plays every down. Where I worry is that the recruiting has not improved in many years, and...

    5 vs 5 Uncut

    The thing about Goldwire is he brings experience to a very inexperienced unit (Hurt and Moore haven't played a tournament game) and he brings defensive toughness which 175 pound freshmen are unlikely to have at first. Remember Tre Jones against Winston his freshman season?

    I have been a Cut booster even last year. However, I wonder how long he is going to want to continue in the same holding pattern. It will be his decision when to leave, but he must be very frustrated and I wonder if he is losing control of the situation.

    Feel bad for Mr. Gilbert who worked so hard to rehab and now has to do it again. Wonder if he's done. I understand Josh Blackwell is out as well. I hate to root for the season to be canceled, but...

    5 vs 5 Uncut

    It could come down to either Hurt or Williams starting, depending on whether Hurt can defend and rebound. I think Roach or Steward will start, then Goldwire, Moore, JJ and Hurt/Williams. But then again, I am not high on Hurt right now.

    5 vs 5 Uncut

    No question in my mind Goldwire starts with one of the freshman. He is the calm experienced guard we need and his skills no longer lag behind. I'm still not sold on Hurt. I wonder how he'll get that flat footed shot off and he won't be a factor in a running game. #15 looked active and...

    Farewell, friends

    Wil, you are a little older than I am but experienced a lot of the same things in Duke sports as I did. I wish you would reconsider and resist the urge to look at threads that shouldn't be on here. It's been a down month and I assume a lot of the old posters will come back when the season...

    i remember that West Virginia trash talked about Duke being soft after the game. Of course, two years later they got their "what goes around comes around" moment.

    Seven Predictions for Duke next season.

    Street and Smith's. I used to wait for that to come out in the old days. It was the only really authoritative magazine on all of college basketball in the pre-ESPN days when we never got to see 95% of the college teams on TV. I'm glad to hear it's still around. As for Goldwire, I could see...

    OT: Sports trivia. Part three.

    I guess everyone lost interest on this one. His name was John Landy. I think he was Australian. I also think he retired shortly after he rang under 4 minutes. So much for track and field. I'll try another one. What Supreme Court Justice was previously an All American running back and what was...

    What concerns me about Jones, is the two picks he threw on Monday were not 50/50 balls, but rather throws that never should have been made. It's like he suddenly reverts to high school. I hope he'll grow out of it. The good news is, there were no fumbles and he looked in command most of the...
