    Football schedule

    Lot of tough games ahead. At least we're playing football in December.

    "Bye" after two weeks may be more literal than we like.

    Blah blah, can't spork.

    All I know is if we beat Notre Dame we have an excellent shot at an undefeated season.

    On paper anyway.

    The schedule says Charlotte at home. The front page story says at Charlotte?

    Not that I think the season will make it to October, but if it does, we better hope that testing figures in NC improve in a hurry or the Syracuse game will be impossible due to quarantine rules in NY state.

    No word yet, of course, on whether fans will be in attendance (if games are actually played). Wake Forest announced yesterday that only individual game tickets would be sold this season, and season ticket holders will get first chance to pick their games to attend (if allowed). Seems reasonable as a compromise. But I'm doubtful any of us will be going to games this season.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Opener reminds me of Duke football in the early 70s.

    Yes those as well as Florida twice and Tennessee.

    We were broke I guess and traveled for the $$$. We did win one of the Florida games and a Tennessee game later in the decade.

    Yep, I was there Knoxville in person for the Tennessee game in 81. Great victory. We ended the game on a long drive to run out the clock, then took a knee or two inside their ten yard line to finish it off instead of scoring. The next morning, the Knoxville newspaper had a story where they said they could handle a defeat by Duke, but found that Duke showing mercy on them was hard to take.

    Side note: The Worlds Fair was adjacent to the football stadium, and let out at the same time that night as the football game ended. It took us until about 2:00AM to even get out of the parking lot. Surprisingly, the Vol fans were courteous and congratulated those of us wearing Duke garb.

    I was thinking about the 1976 win, but yes we also beat the Vols in early and late 1980s. I saw 2 of the 3; their fans were pleasant but in disbelief.

    Duke gets one vote in the Coaches Poll.

    I think we beat them in either '74 or '75. I remember going to the game. Their coach, Bill Battle, resigned after we beat them. Or is that all a "beer fog"?

    Beer fog. It was 1976. It was my first year of law school and my friend and I drove to Knoxville for the game. Bill Battle was the UT coach. Duke won 21-18 and after leaving the field after the game, the team came back out and did a victory lap around the field in front of the 500 or so Duke fans in the stands in the far corner of the then 90,000 seat Neyland stadium. What a great day. Side note - it was the first game calling DUKE Games for Bob Harris.

    Duke football is way ahead of the curve on this one. Wade attendees have been practicing social distancing for years.

    It was easy social distance at last year's Syracuse game. I had an entire row to myself.
