    FB: Duke 45, NC A&T 17 (Friday 9/10/2021, 8 pm, ACCN)

    It’s a new week so time to move on to the Friday night matchup against NC A&T. Discuss the game here. Will we see adjustments and improved performance?

    We will likely need to score over 40 points to win this game and frankly I'm not sure that will be enough. Fool that I am, I will be there to watch the debacle. Old habits - going to Duke football games for 60 years - die hard. Still love my Devils!

    My biggest question is will there be enough people there for me to search out someone to stay 6 feet away from.

    Just FYI, I've wagered $50k on Duke. Hope this doesn't bite me in the rear.

    As luck would have it I watched much of the Furman vs NC A&T game last week.* It was on channel 62 out of Asheville and was available in Greenville, SC. Furman won the game 29-18 and was never in serious trouble.

    Here is a link to box score, teams stats and such from the Furman website.

    I'm not a football analyst, but here are my few notes on the game:

    Furman was never in trouble. They led by two scores for most of the game.

    A&T had some athletes, at least Furman level athletes, but made a good many mistakes. According to the announcers, A&T didn't play any games in 2020 or spring of 2021 so this was their first game in almost 2 years.

    Two of the A&T defensive starters were called for targeting and disqualified. Another starter was lost to injury.

    Furman had some trouble running on A&T, but made a lot of yardage passing. A&T was touted as having strong runners, but didn't do all that much.


    *There were some glitches in the game feed on Spectrum so part of the game was not available. I'm not liking Spectrum very much, particularly not their cloud DVR.

    I am fairly certain he is making fun of the people who were bragging about bets in the Charlotte pre-game thread.

    Cool. I'll be in Section 28 Row EE as always with my son and maybe a grandson.

    This would make a great “Bad Idea Jeans” commercial…

    Good stuff, thanks! I agree this is a must win, and I would even add the word "comfortably" to the end those two words. I get that everyone thinks we suck, but A&T has nowhere close to the resources and talent, and this should be a comfortable win. It should be a chance for Mataeo to put up some good numbers, and then put his feet up for the last 1/3 of the game. It should be a chance for Gunnar and the receivers to get comfortable as A&T creeps up to stop the run. It should be a chance for the defense to fix these coverage issues and put a damned turnover on the board. It should anyway...

    The tackling follow up was telling. Missed tackle upon missed tackle—and who to substitute? I was pleased to hear that the team’s spirit hasn’t broken—think that was covered in the postgame. Must be a fragile unit. Oyyy.
