    Ian Book is a mobile quarterback and mobile quarterbacks give us fits, example - Bryce Perkins. The defense must pressure Book and contain him because he is adept at extending plays with his legs and finding receivers downfield. Notre Dame has big, talented receivers who will keep moving.

    The defense is going to have to play a near perfect game but more important is our offense, which must achieve success sustaining drives to keep the Irish offense off the field. Simple concept but difficult to execute against a quality opponent.

    We absolutely must successfully throw the ball downfield to have a chance to win.

    IF the stands are full of fans they will be of the Fighting Irish variety and are used to the cold - at least more so than the Duke fans. Would be very surprised to see the stadium full. I plan to be there but will most likely go home to watch the 2nd half as I am one of the latter.

    ND -7

    Early line in Vegas - ND by 7. Thought it might be higher.

    I am guessing that many ND fans who love much closer to Durham than South Bend will be in attendance, and as such I have less faith in their cold weather skills. This will be the game where Duke Concessions will be loaded up with major supplies of ice cold water.

    Well that is my point we canít play scared. Harris has to run the whole offense to include throwing the ball downfield.

    ...and this helps open up everything else....even some near misses on some deep balls will do that.

    Cut at ND

    I didn't realize he was going to join Weis's first staff ... thought Charlie had been there already: https://www.espn.com/college-footbal...ory?id=2073669

    Looks like Peter Vaas was hired to replace Cut: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005_N..._football_team ... and Vaas ended up at Duke in 2007 ...

    When it comes to weather, we are worse than that FL NFL teams. Some cold performances I've experienced:

    2000 UNC @ Duke (UNC 59-21). This is the coldest I've ever been at a Duke home game, and it was a noon game.
    2007 Duke @ ND (ND 28-7). This cost Roof his job, and this was a 3-9 ND team.
    2014 UNC @ Duke (UNC 45-20). This is the worst loss on the list.
    2016 UNC @ Duke (Duke 28-27). This was probably the nicest weather on the list, and I'm including it to be fair.
    2016 Duke @ Pitt (Pitt 56-14). It actually snowed over lunch for a 3:30 game.

    I like teams that run the ball and hold on to it in adverse weather conditions. We don't do the latter this year.

    Sagarin predicts ND by nine and has been consistent in the 10 range for a few weeks.

    Duke is already sending out bread-and-milk alarms for this game. Even when the stadium would be full (40004) in the past, I've never seen them create satellite parking with special bus service and open the main parking lots at 6AM for night game. They probably expect artificial warmth pregame anyway.

    I was at both of these. The 2012 Belk Bowl against Cincy was darn chilly, too.

    I was also at the 1990 Virginia and 2018 WFU games but those were cold in another way.
