    Sooo, should we win by 34 or lose by 49?

    I like us coming off a bye:

    2019: Beat Virginia Tech, ?
    2018: Beat Georgia Tech
    2017: Loss to Army
    2016: Loss to Georgia Tech
    2015: Beat Virginia Tech
    2014: Beat Georgia Tech, Beat Pittsburgh
    2013: Beat Navy, Beat N.C. State
    2012: Loss to Georgia Tech

    Starting with the first bowl eligible season under Coach Cutcliffe, Duke is 7-3 after a bye.

    For those who have managed to forget how far Duke football has come, I'm sure I'm not the only person who read this article hoping to find no mention of Duke AND pleasantly surprised to see us relegated to honorable mention status.

    Cut has carried us futher than many of us thought possible. How many of you would be shocked if we won this weekend?

    me. Defense will keep us in the game only so long. ND is far from a great team...but our offense is broken and can't get up.
    And as much as I admire Cutcliffe, "precision" is hardly our offensive problem. We are number 129 out of 130 FBS teams in terms of explosive plays, as in we don't have any.
    Our wide receivers are the 110th most productive...We either can't, or choose not to, throw the ball downfield.
    Hope I'm surprised this weekend, I'll be there with my second warmest coat.

    All true. Also true is that Clawson is now ahead of Cut at WF, or an argument could be made on that...and Baylor has risen from the ashes and passed us by rapidly. (keeping with the private school thing) - not to mention SMU.

    I mean, I love Cut, but I am getting over the "has carried us further" argument. Maybe it's a "get off my lawn" moment for me...

    -We found out Frank was critical to making anyone else in the show interesting...not a surprise...

    You are not alone. The "we used to be pitiful" excuse goes only so far. We've been in a backward slide for several years now, our conference record in that stretch has been WAY below .500.
    Cut's a fine man and has (with robust help from the administration) breathed life into the program. That's a great thing for which we're all grateful. But we are on a downward trajectory that needs fixing, or Cut's oft stated goal of "competing for championships" will ring awfully hollow.

    Budwom is spot on!

    The offense absolutely must successfully throw the ball downfield if we are to have any chance to win. Iíll be in Wallace wade full of optimism at kickoff hoping to see our Blue Devils open up the offense and fight for 60 minutes.

    Once (if) we complete a pass or two downfield, Notre Dame will have to back a safety out of the box which will open up the running game and underneath stuff. Be assured Notre Dame will start the game playing press coverage outside with the box loaded.

    There is absolutely no reason to take a conservative offensive approach. Letís come out swinging and if we go down at least we go down swinging.

    Thanks for the link. It's better than the ACC Network highlight I have on my pregame Youtube list, but ACCN is more permanent and easier to access.

    As much as the ND fans are supposed to be nice to visitors, that doesn't hold 100% when they lose to Duke football. (I also can't say the same for all Duke fans when ND won in Cameron earlier that year.)
