Duke Football: 100 Years of Frustration...& Counting
Duke University is celebrating 100 years of college football
futility. It hasn't been that long since they had a winning record, but you do have to go back to 1994 to discover an 8-4 season and a bowl eligible team. I suppose 18 years can seem like a hundred at times, depending on one's perspective. But wait, the Blue Devils now find themselves 5-1 overall and 2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. They are winning in October and it's not basketball! But "not so fast my friends", as Lee Corso would say. Duke was 5-3 in 2009 and failed to win another game. Just last year they found themselves 3-2, and then found themselves 0-7 in their next/last seven games. Will this year be any different? They begin that quest to find out and to become bowl eligible at Virginia Tech Saturday. Here's to a winning season for Duke Blue Devil Football. Or not. Just sayin...
