    Duke on NBC's "Capital One College Bowl" Friday 9/23

    Season 2 of "Capital One College Bowl" started up on NBC a few weeks ago. Each episode pits three players from one university against three players from another in a general trivia contest. Duke plays tonight (Friday 9/23 at 8pm ET) against Columbia, defending champs from Season 1.

    There are two half-hour matches in a one-hour episode. UC Santa Barbara plays Morehouse in the other match. I don't know if Duke-Columbia will be the first match or the second.

    Anyway, here's the Duke team:

    Wow, Vignesh and Perisa are tall, and look a lot like host Peyton Manning and his older brother Cooper.

    Sometime after the broadcast, the episode will be available on NBC.com to cable subscribers and on Peacock for people who use Peacock.

    I think it's nice when young people wear suits although I question Perisa's plaid. Vignesh's blazer, is that leather? Bold, confident choice.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Yeah, they should have re-thought the lineup of that photo.

    I've seen the other episodes, and there's a lot of whiffing. Not to generalize that generation, but when Vignesh thought that Taco Bell was the burrito place established in 1993, well, it was not the first time on this show that a contestant's hold of recent history was suspect.

    Duke was pretty good, and could have beaten Columbia head-to-head had they been quicker to the buzzer about 2 or 3 more times. Fortunately they advance anyway as a wild card. I'm just glad they were able to buzz in and answer the very first question, about who beat UNC men's basketball in the 2022 NCAA Tournament.

    I wonder if Cooper Manning chuckles to himself about how the winners of this competition will receive less money than his son will in his first NIL deal.

    Yeah I thought they should have known that even if they didn’t know recent history.

    Not knowing “yak” or “donkey” also surprised me.

    I'm pretty sure that was a dig at Duke. A sadly deserved jibe.
    But then again, I'm pretty thin skinned.
