    Iím really thinking the Duke offense can be as successful, if not more, than their first half last Saturday. Hoping they can translate that success into a complete game domination.

    In case anyone missed it, this is definitely worth a read: https://www.dukebasketballreport.com...big-ten-big-12

    Duke certainly didnít handle success with aplomb in the NW game, but they handled it well enough to win, didnít they.

    I am hoping I have no need to watch the second half of the Kansas game.

    Duke canít commit turnovers. Duke is even in Turnover Margin but Kansas is +2. The Jayhawks have not thrown an interception this season. Our Blue Devils need to change that.

    Kansas gives up 225.3 rushing yards per game, which ranks 121 of 130 FBS teams. While establishing offensive balance is always a Coach Cutcliffe priority, it is likely we will look to run the ball to setup the pass.

    Looking forward to Mataeo Durant channeling his inner Shaun Wilson and having a great game.

    How do they do against the bubble pass though?

    I like it. Shaun Wilson set the single game record (that Durant just broke) against Kansas in Durham. A new record for Durant would be great.

    Makes sense to me but in the first half last week I loved the long pass pressure out of the gate to set up the run.

    I canít argue your point. The 50 yard completion to Darrell Harding was a tone setter.

    Phil Steele predicts 37-20 Duke

    I'd like to think he's underselling our offense a bit. Especially if we can come of the gate firing like last week.

    You sir, could use a little time out. I had concocted the perfect morning elixir of 1 part coffee to 8.5 parts cream and sugar and now it's ruined.

    Let's hope we don't put our six guns away at half time like we did last week.

    You've fallen victim to one of the classic blunders... You know, "never get involved in a land war in Asia," "never bet on a Duke football game," etc. If you don't believe me, ask Jason about it. I imagine he's still reeling from the Charlotte wager debacle.

    Screens and short passes can work just fine... when you get blocking like this: https://twitter.com/DukeFOOTBALL/sta...76500960825344
    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.

    Me... pretty much throughout the entire second half of the Charlotte game:

    We haven't set the stakes - he left that open. I'm going to go with $50 to the winner's favorite charity. That way, no one really loses.

    Duke looks to win its third straight game today. The last time we won a third straight game was on 9/27/2019 when we thrashed Virginia Tech 45-10.

    Duke is a 16 points favorite in Vegas.

    ESPN Football Power Index gives Duke 90.6% chance to win.

    Iím nervous.

    I'm nervous too. Especially if Kansas brings their own officiating crew like NW did. That crew slowed the offense down and allowed the NW
    front four on D to continue to lollygag on and off the field. That's right a bunch of lollygagers. Plus they were a bit creative in their penalties.
    Never thought I'd say I hope ACC refs show up. Somebody put me out of my misery.
