    Welcome Jalen. 17 total power 5 offers. I love recruits from Georgia.

    I've thought something like a "Sum ranking of the five best offers" would be an intresting way to look at football recruiting, and perhaps more predictive than the various star systems. This lad would have a nice score in that game. I'll add my "welcome" with bells on it.

    I"ll take the importance of offer sheets any day over various star assessments. The guys who offer the scholarships are the true professionals. I'll take a three star kid with offers from
    teams like Auburn, Oklahoma and Michigan State without question over a four star kid with lesser offers. Frequently the star system catches up with the offers anyway.

    It is refreshing to have spring practice actually in the spring.

    In the euphoria of last night - I was in Cameron and it was delicious - nobody has mentioned what an outstanding day Saturday was for Duke football. We received three outstanding commitments, all from in-state, one a four star running back and the other two are three star recruits! Go Devils!

    Well, who are they?

    We gotta work on Bob Green as he usually scoops everyone on this sort of good FB news. Bob musta been napping yesterday afternoon to rest up for the game last PM (chain-yanking here as I think Bob and his grandson were at the LAX match or maybe the baseball game .)
    [redacted] them and the horses they rode in on.

    Baylor football back in the news:

    http://www.espn.com/college-football...lt-allegations

    Two Baylor football players have been suspended from the team because of allegations of sexual assault involving football players and female members of the university's equestrian team.
    Duke travels to Waco to play Baylor on September 15.

    Enjoyed "meeting Coach Goethie" via this brief interview with Dave Harding.
    Welcome to Duke.
    The Coach Cutcliffe tree looks like it's added a strong branch.

    Spring Practice starts today

    http://www.goduke.com/ViewArticle.db...DB_OEM_ID=4200

    The Blue Devils return 16 starters and 48 lettermen from last year’s squad that went 7-6 and earned a 36-14 victory over Northern Illinois in the Quick Lane Bowl.
    There are certainly question marks as Spring Practice commences, starting with the kicking game, but all Duke fans should be excited about the experience and talent on the roster in 2018.
