    Duke-UNC FB thread

    Place discussion of Saturday's game against UNC-CH here.

    Please refrain from speculation about Roof's job status in this thread, at least until after the game.

    What about Butch Davis' job status? Maybe the news about his possible leaving UNC for the Arkansas job will distract his team this week and benefit Duke.

    Wherever the wind blows and the leaves dance.

    Bad timing

    Word from IC is that UNC is close to announcing a contract extension for BD and stadium upgrades. The vibe coming from the hill is all positive at this point and they will probably roll over Duke this weekend.

    Sadly, I harbor no illusions that we're going to win this weekend. I'll be interested to see how competitive we are. Every time I think the mojo around this program can't get any worse, it does. I feel terrible for the players, and I find it truly mystifying that we're this hapless year in and year out. *Sigh.*

    Frank Dascenzo is acting like he knows something about Davis:

    I understand that Davis has agreed to an extension with UNC.

    As for the game, UNC has been very erratic. If we catch them on a down game, good things could happen. If we catch them on an up game it could get ugly and I don't want to think about it.

    Butch Davis set to get $291,000 raise

    The University of North Carolina announced today that it has agreed in principle with head football coach Butch Davis to a one-year contract extension and a raise of $291,000 per year pending approval of the University Board of Trustees next week.

    "We recognize the progress Coach Davis has made in rebuilding and generating momentum in the Carolina football program," Athletic Director Dick Baddour said in a statement. "Progress has been demonstrated by the hard work of the players on and off the field, the competitive games Carolina has played against one of the nation¹s most difficult schedules, the excitement each week at Kenan Stadium and the quality of the student-athletes he and his staff are recruiting.
    Quite a large increase for the year he has had.

    DUKE vs. UNC

    Tommorrow at 3:30 an ESPNU we might see the reing of Ted Roof come to an end. In his first season he defeated UNC in Chapel Hill. Why can't he do it again?

    The Blue Devils have a great WR in Eron Riley who will be going against an undersized UNC Secondary.

    As Long as the Blue Devil Defense does not give up any BIG Plays from TJ Yates to Brandon Tate we should have a good chance.

    We need to put alot of pressure on the tar heel QB and make sure that we make the tackel when it is there.

    I will be there on the 40. yd line, 2nd row, and this will be a great game!

    DUKE: 38

    UNC: 30

    If UNC has one of those games where they make a lot of mistakes, like blown coverages and turnovers, then we have a good chance. We do have significant experience advantage over them. We also have a mobile QB, and will probably need him to be very mobile since their defensive line can be ferocious.

    If UNC has one of those games where they do not make a lot of mistakes it could be a long day.

    Preview: Duke at North Carolina

    When Duke has the ball: Duke has struggled all year to move the ball with any consistency, and that should be the case today. Roof has lamented the lack of long drives from his offense, even if a big-play threat from solid QB Thaddeus Lewis still exists. Edge: UNC

    When UNC has the ball: UNC will try to get a rusher to 100 yards, keeping alive a streak of seasons since 1966 with at least one such game. Edge: UNC

    Special teams: UNC has shined in special teams -- with kicker Connor Barth now owning the school career field goals record and returner Brandon Tate a league leader. Tate took a punt and kickoff to the house against Duke last year. Edge: UNC

    Intangibles: Duke might not have a chance to save Roof's job. But if either team has something to play for, it's Duke. Edge: Duke
    If this is correct it could be a long day today.

    This is the first time, in my recollection of recent history, that Duke-Carolina hasn't been televised (not even Raycom is showing it).

    It's on ESPNU.

    And it's been untelevised a few times lately.

    status check

    6 minutes to go, good guys-7, bad guys-7. we had 1st and goal at the 8, had about a 12 yd loss on a sack, lost 1-2 on a famous screen, had a delay of game and then Thad hit wright for a TD with a good PAT but a 15 yd excessive celebration against us assessed on the ko giving the holes good field position

    That sounds like about a week's worth of soap opera episodes. You forgot the part about Sandra falling in love with the star quarterback.
