    Ah, the Ben Bennett days. Third and 25? Seemed Spurrier could come up with a successful play more often than not.
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!

    Spurrier was at Duke from fall ‘86 to fall ‘88 plus the bowl IIRC.

    During those days, I wandered into a Duke-UNC game and was astounded by Duke's offense. UNC clearly had bigger, better personnel, but the offensive playcalling befuddled their defense...hadn't been on campus for a few years at that point, wasn't up on the coaching and such. Spurrier was remarkable at keeping a defense off balance.

    He was the offensive coordinator. That was why he ended up as head coach.

    Great to finally win a game. Congrats to the team and coaches! Watching our offensive line block and pull and execute with cohesion was pure joy - unadulterated joy.
