    Actually, since Littlejohn was "modernized" it's not nearly the tough loud arena it used to be. Lot of Clemson fans complain about how they ruined the atmosphere there. Years of mediocrity hasn't helped either. I expect the dullest quietest crowd we've ever faced at that arena, given the pall that must be over the Upstate today.

    And yes, I remember when they let in about 3000 ABOVE fire marshall capacity in 80 or 81 and Clemson beat the top ranked Gminski,Banks, Dennard team. That was no doubt the all time atmosphere in Littlejohn.

    January 9th 1980. It was during winter break so we drove down from Charlotte for the game. I was there sitting way up in the corner of the top deck. The aisles were full of people even up where we were. Thankfully nobody shouted fire.

    So injuries is how Coach K is going to whittle the starting lineup down to 8. Very clever.

    Lots of Duke haters believe that Coach K has had 8 in the starting lineup for years . . .

    Seems like the perfect game to have to deal with foul trouble. Maybe AOC will bring his A game because we may need it...

    yeah, opportunity to White and AOC to play more, gain confidence in shooting. We already know Goldwire will play a bunch.

    Nine. Coach has been saving the Admiral's son for such a time as this.

    In all seriousness, I wouldn't be too surprised to see him play meaningful minutes tonight. He's done it before.

    I am one of the believers that a key to our success this year has been partially due to teams not being able to game plan for a random rotation. Losing 2 of our usual 10 certainly makes us a little less mysterious.

    Who do we think will be the 5th starter...Goldwire? He played well last game in a starting role and I can see K wanting to create a pressure cooker, although it looks like both teams TO%s are identical.

    This injury to Baker has me unsettled, as does the Clemson L last night in the national title game. I'd hate for the basketball team to give the fans something to soothe the hurt.

    I'm going to assume that Goldwire gets the start in this one. It would be nice to have some scoring on the bench. AOC is the most offensively gifted of the group between Goldwire, White, and DeLaurier. My expectation is that all 8 will play a good chunk of time. Heck, we might even see some minutes from Justin Robinson. He has an absurd block rate and can hit a jumper.

    Feels like a classic trap game with the Cards coming in to town this weekend. Would love to see a solid defensive effort with lots of on-ball pressure. Gonna be a good game.

    In all seriousness, neither would I. Could see him playing half a dozen or so minutes tonight. Especially if thereís any foul trouble. And I think he would acquit himself quite nicely.

    Hoping JGold and JRob and JWhite and JDel acquit themselves well tonight in the absence of JBake. Hope Tre J does, too.

    Stephen Wiseman tweeting from Littlejohn...maybe it will be dead..

    ďA half hour before tip. I can't remember seeing a gathering this sparse for a Duke road game. That's NOT a knock on Clemson. Rather, speaks volumes about the circumstances after last night's football game.ď
