    Nothing so far, which is good news as I suspect we will hear absolutely nothing unless another injury was incurred.

    Nice crowd at meet the Blue Devils Day - anyone else go? Also cool that they invited season ticket holders to join the team for the annual team picture.

    Coach Cutcliffe comments on Friday's scrimmage:

    https://www.newsobserver.com/sports/...234119697.html

    1. Team stayed healthy! That's a good thing.
    2. First offense scored 24 points.
    3. First defense held second offense scoreless.
    4. The team is getting better every time it takes to the practice field.

    Coach Cutcliffe commented the kicking game is progressing but my interpretation of his facial expressions while making the comment is it isn't where it needs to be.

    Tx. Bob. Cut also indicated that the first team offense went 60 yards in the two minute drill for a field goal as the first half ended.

    Steve Wiseman with more scrimmage information:

    https://www.newsobserver.com/sports/...234111737.html

    Offensive Coordinator Zac Roper stated:

    ďWe are young at the tackle spots and thatís OK, we arenít just playing young players. We feel like we are playing young, talented players.Ē
    Roper also stated Deon Jackson playing in the second scrimmage helped the offense.

    This thread is about the whole 2019 season not the Alabama game. A game thread will be opened at the appropriate time.

    I'm one of the more optimistic Duke football fans and while I am not predicting a victory over the Crimson Tide, I refuse to concede the game before they kick the ball. Lots of young talent on the roster, how talented remains to be seen.

    It's hard to believe that the season is just around the corner. We have a ton of questions to answer all over the field, but I'm excited to see how we stack up. And that it's us with the chance to hand Alabama a 2-game losing streak.

    As it happens, I have a ticket available in the Iron Dukes section for the Duke/Alabama game. A few friends and I bought tickets a long time ago, but something came up and I'm not able to make the trip. I'd love for the ticket to go to a good, Duke home. PM if interested! (Apologies if this isn't the right place, but there's not a ton of other Duke football chatter so I figured I'd throw it out here.)

    No Votes for Duke in the Preseason AP Poll

    Zero, zip, nada from the 62 AP voters, as opposed to ten votes from the Coaches Poll. Not truly significant because, at best, ten of the 65 coaches gave recognition to Duke at #25. Or, possibly one voter out of 65 voted for Duke at #16 and the rest said, "Nah!" Anyway, let's win our ranking on the playing field.

    I'm honestly surprised we got that many. I would be really curious where our votes came from.

    Sure ain't a lot of love for the ACC at all in those polls. Three* teams total.

    *reluctantly including ND, only because they will play more ACC teams than others.

    2019 Duke Football Digital Guide is available at GoDuke.com:

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

    I've just started looking through it. Barry Jacobs has an article on Quentin Harris (Belief in Quentin), Jim Sumner writes about Deon Jackson and Brittain Brown (Full Speed Ahead) and John Roth contributes an article on Michael Carter (Value Added DB).

    There is a lot more content...

    Jacob Monk with a lot of love at 247 for preseason Freshman All American:

    https://247sports.com/Article/Best-f...ley-134564281/

    OL Ė Jacob Monk, Duke (No. 479, No. 27 OG)

    Duke is not inexperienced at right tackle: 6-foot-7 redshirt junior Robert Kraeling started every game at the position last season for the Blue Devils. So the fact that the 6-foot-3 Monk looks well-positioned to win that job is much more of a testament to his ability than any playing-time-by-necessity scenario.
