    The weird thing about Duke’s 5-1 start (only loss AT Stanford) is that they’re probably going to end the season with a losing record: Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Florida State, Clemson, at Georgia Tech, Miami – that’s about as close to a murderer’s row you can get in the ACC.

    I know there’s been a conversation about whether Ole Miss should have played Texas – there’s NO DOUBT Duke shouldn’t have played Stanford! When was the last time Duke went to a bowl?
