    Pacing the floors and wringing my hands, too. I hope we get off to a solid start and don't get overwhelmed early like we did against Stanford.
    Agreed. We must be ready from the start! Butterflies here.

    Go Duke!
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!

    ...about as useful as baseball keys to the game that include "throw strikes", and "get outs"
    I dunno, as a Nats fan who was at the Cardinals game last night (and didn't get home until after 3am!) I can say that quite a few Nationals fans today would argue that there aren't two more poignant words than that - "throw strikes!" Now I know how Kerlina felt after Rivers' shot in Chappa Heeel last year...

    Very excited that this game will be on the local network station in the DC area. Am wearing my Duke colors to my kids' soccer games this AM, amongst dozens of alums in "Hokie drag." At least they aren't trash-talking as they have in years past!

    Duke's offensive line is surprisingly good and VT's pass rush is terrible. If this pattern holds today and Renfree gets lots of time to throw, that's a huge benefit to us.

    No slow start today! Renfree had all day to throw the ball.

    Wow. Very early still 3 quarters to play so hopefully Duke doesn't let up but you said 20 point lead in the first quarter, I'd bet you my house. Hopefully they finish strong.

    My! My! My!

    Said the announcer, as Jordan Byas (sp?) grabs a bobbled ball and returns for a TD.

    As a Nats and Duke football fan, I can assure you that no lead is safe. -- sagegrouse

    This is a game where you either step on the throat when you have them or you slowly let them back into the game and the crowd gets more fired up b/c of the comeback. A stop here and just a few first downs would do wonders.

    You've had a hard life!

    Would have liked the defense to play a bit better on that last drive (at least held VT to a FG). But aside from that, this game has been amazing! Let's keep putting points on the board and make it tough for Tech to catch up.

    Unfortunately, as most of us are painfully aware, the game's never over with Duke football. Gonna be a dog fight the rest of the way.

    Damn!!! We needed that throw to Crowder to connect right there.

    Go Duke, Beat VT

    Renfree was on the ground when he got hit. That was an absolutely atrocious no call.

    To the announcers, that's SIRK, not Sink!

    I thought so, too. Even if he wasn't on the ground, how is that NOT a shot to the head? Isn't that (shot to the head) illegal??? Typical VT BS!
