    If that is the case, Flash, that Spurrier didn't recommend Franks, thank you for the clarification. For some reason I was under that, apparently false, impression.

    P.S. Whatever my feelings about Alleva, he definitely doesn't give me a "god feeling" either. ;0)

    Go Duke!!!!!!!!! Go Devils!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GTHCGTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chronicle article on Spurrier's visit. I thought this line about whether or not Spurrier is a candidate was interesting:
    "He could be, sure," Duke Sports Information Director Art Chase said. "Everyone's a candidate."

    I think we should just have someone upstairs playing simulated games of NCAA football and use the "Ask Lee" function to figure out which play to run.

    Devils need a new stadium before we are ever to compete and attract a top coach. Good ol' Wallace Wade has served its purpose. We now need a 55,000+ seat facility to entice someone like Steve again to the house.

    YOu must've been sitting in front of me this season, b/c I swear we could've done a better job of play calling at times by using a recommendation from any football video game.

    I'm not going to get delirious yet about Steve. I'm still bitter about how he left. I understand about going back to your roots, but he could've waited until after the bowl game was over to flaunt it. I still think how that went down demoralized our boys and played a part on the loss.

    Still, he must have some big brass bells if he were to come back. Either he becomes the savior or just another martyr.

    I can't get sued or anything for using/manipulating his pic can I? I've been paranoid about people we talk about reading this board ever since I got called a douchebag, on my birthday mind you, by that guy that runs the sh*ty Onion wannabe site.

    IANAL (BIUTBATWAABFWPCL). (I am not a lawyer, but I used to be a tech writer and am basically familiar with publishing copyright law). I am sure one of the many lawyers here will find things to correct, but here's what I was taught:

    You are dodging virtually all lawsuit potential by not SELLING the pic or using it to raise money.

    I don't know who the guy is, but you're probably covered under fair use assuming this satirizes a public figure.

    Otherwise, you would still receive a cease-and-desist letter prior to suing. If you comply, no lawsuit.

    Now, some moron could always sue you and put you through the pain of fighting it no matter what you did, but typically (and particularly if you tangled with a corp or business interest) that's the way it would play out.

    I believe the photo is of Doug Gotleib. Do you have fixation issues?

    Steve Spurrier

    There was a short squib in The New York Times last week saying that Spurrier was seen on the Duke campus shaking hands with Alleva. Obviously he is not leaving USC to come back to Duke. Anyone know anything about Spurrier's visit which I think, (I could be mistaken about the timing though), came prior to USC playing Clemson, ( which as a football rivelry equalls Duke-UNC basketball rivelry).

    I can't imagine that he came up from Columbia to give his input on a new football hire even though I understand that he and Alleva are good friends, a telephone call could have had the same result.

    Recruiting trip to the area with a stop in to Duke to pimp his son for the job. As a wise old man pointed out to me, if Spurrier were in town to interview for the position, it probably would have been behind closed doors.

    Unless he also wanted a round of golf at the Duke course - which he has always liked.

    Atlanta radio suggested the same thing about his son.

    The talk here in Atlanta is that Tech is talking to Edsall (UConn) and Neuheisel. Cross those two off the Duke list.
