Three weeks ago I'd have had much lower expectations of our chances vs. VPI and GT. But right now only FSU and Clemson maybe look like they're out of reach. But UNC and Miami at home, and games at VPI and GT certainly seem possible now. Still hoping for a win over VPI, but how sweet would that be to clinch the first bowl in 18 years over bowl-suspended UNC at home??!
Here's a nice CNN/SI snippet very favorable to Cut and to Duke: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...nia-bcs/3.html Like Cameron, the only one I'm not hoping for is Shreveport. Next tier up is Military and Tire Bowl (Charlotte). Any others would be awesome in my mind!
Feinstein has a piece up today on page two of the Washington Post Sports section very disdainful of ACC football. In typical JF fashion, ">>>And then there's - gulp - Duke, the only other team along with Miami and Maryland that's unbeaten in conference play. The Blue Devils are 5-1 and 2-0, thanks in part to playing out-of-conference games against Memphis and Florida International (combined record 2-9) and FCS non-power NCCU. The one time the Blue Devils played a real team (Stanford), they lost, 50-13.They have wins over Wake and UVA and there's actually bowl talk in Durham... there's not a game left on the schedule that Duike will be favored to win. Sadly, Duke and Maryland aren't scheduled to play this season - what a battle that game would be." http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports...ff6_story.html
