    Our blue was better in 2016:

    Yes on the head, not so sure about it being metallic, but it's blue.

The rivalry component and the football component are both a bit...opaque as currently presented. I realize one might expect Duke fans to recognize Duke's motto, but I'm not sure that is a realistic expectation (and it certainly won't jump out as a game thread for most anyone who is quickly skimming thread titles for the "interesting" ones). I definitely missed it until now, even though it was presumably on the front page at some point.
    But from the title you had to know that the Heels were involved - that part isn’t opaque😀

    Thanks for the correction. Still a bad taste from the “our Blue is better” marketing from 2014, when we then came out in black.

    Speaking of which, State is in all black tonight. Isn’t a great look in my opinion. (It appears to be a black out game for then.)

    I am color blind, a little, and they look like black uniforms. But my wife is not. She thinks State is in blue. What gives? Deep blue for NCS. Even Wake uniforms look strange - white with shiny gold helmets?

    Be sure the sound is on because it adds to impressions of the times.
    That was a terrific photo compilation/slideshow. Thanks.

    So 79 years later, our rivalry game will draw 40% less people....wonder how many football rivalries are in that kind of shape versus where they were in 39...or 49, or 59, or 69, or 99...

    I know it's a mascot-eat-mascot world, but my tastes veer toward the non-cannibal side.

    There are many vintage programs for Carolina-Duke. Here are two:

    Duke UNC 1941.jpg

    Finally, a cover image of the Iron Dukes office. "What's that? You're holding the tickets in your hand? Then why are you calling? Hold on... I need to get rid of the NC State guy on the other line, who also somehow has tickets."

    On November 15, 1941, Duke hosted Carolina and beat them 20-0, in the homestretch of an undefeated regular season. (This was the Rose Bowl-in-Durham season, which has been discussed on DBR before.)

    Duke UNC 1982.jpg

    It was nice of them to put Red Wilson on the program cover of what looks like his final game as Duke's head coach. Duke hosted Carolina and beat them 23-17, finishing the season 6-5. Bowl eligible? Not exactly. I doubt there were enough bowls back then, or that 6 was any kind of magic number. Bowl committees must have discovered easy corporate money, corruption, and incompetence later.

    Once again, as a resident of Mobile, AL this map both angers and confuses me.

    Looks like you saved me, awhom...I generally get all the Duke games on DirecTV college extra, but a tiny station up here in Vermont has started carrying ACC games, and 792 will be blacked out. Thanks!
    (now I just hope the game is good, I'll be attending, but if we lose I just delete the recording and sulk).

    Many fewer bowls back then...generally took 8 wins to get one, maybe 7. 6 win teams simply did not go bowling. And while we're on the topic of Red Wilson - I've heard numerous reasons why he was fired. I am not connected like so many on here are...with deep ties into HQ. Can someone elaborate on why they let Red go? It certainly wasn't Ws and Ls.

    Ben Bennett at quarterback, Steve Spurrier as offensive coordinator. A goal post came down that day, and I still have a piece of it!

    Somehow I was there for that game which was 1982 I think, did not get season tickets until 1985 or so, nothing was on TV up North.
    The game completely blew my mind...while I didn't know the personnel much at all, it was clear that unc had a whole bunch of really good defensive players, some of them NFL level,
    and while they got enormous pressure on Bennett, he kept them off balance all game long with timely screen passes, delays to running backs, despite what looked to me like a significant
    talent gap (though Bennett was terrific). Then I learned about Spurrier being OC and kept on eye on him as his reputation grew...

    The DUMB halftime show was ON FIRE that day also, if I recall correctly
