    Maybe, but I am all for copying Alabama's play book what a revelation. ND also has a very creative offense -- but not the same talent.

    Kevin White is playing out the string on Cut's contract...I even wonder if White will retire before that contract expires in two years, leaving the fun to someone else. As dispiriting as I find these moves, I can't imagine how bad I'll feel if Cut gets an extension. It truly saddens me that he's gone from statue outside WW terrirory to a guy who will be lucky to win another ACC game. We are going to be in a world of hurt next season.

    “The biggest change, of course is me coming out of that (offensive) room and getting back to being our head football coach, which I did a really poor job,” he said. “ if I had to critique one thing, I needed to be across the board the head football coach. It became very obvious to me awhile in.”
    He's honest about that part, at least.

    Ha, I used that phrase because any discussion of Duke football seems to dredge up the inevitable "but we were so bad before Cutcliffe got here" lamentations, and I was hoping to allow those folks to be happy with these moves.

    Got it! You are very kind.

    Did y'all notice Cutcliffe's statement, "If I had to critique one thing..." ouch.

    I am curious whether he actually believes these changes are going to result in a competitive season.

    What makes me sad [in addition to the crappy football] is that Cutcliffe is a really good human being. But he seems clueless about what needs to change. Is stubbornness his tragic flaw? Lack of imagination? It isn't a fun movie to watch.
    “I love it. Coach, when we came here, we had a three-hour meeting about the core values. If you really represent the core values, it means diving on the floor, sacrificing your body for your teammates, no matter how much you’re up by or how much you’re down by, always playing hard.” -- Zion

    I agree that it's sad, because he IS a good man. The problems are so substantial now, however (given the exodus of eligible starters) that fixing them is going to require several years at the bare minimum. I'm braced for a grim couple of years minimum, but that won't stop me from attending (for some reason).

    Buddy, could you please share tonight's winning lottery numbers too? I mean, seeing as you have a crystal ball, why not spread the wealth around.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I have my hand on the pulse of Duke football, which is pretty much like having a stupid pet trick! The White retirement thing seemed obvious, a decision on Cutcliffe clearly looms within two years, and when I looked up White's age, it came up as roughly 70...why do today what you can put off forever!
