Over and Out

Monday, September 7, 2009

It's nice to see Josh McNary and Victor Ugenyi each listed on the sacks leaderboard.
P Jonathan Bulls had himself a fine day kicking and cracked the top 20 in punting.

Looking ahead:
An interesting look at Duke's frustration: Take Two: Duke's New Focus Should Be Winning, Not Bowls.

Duke posted one, if not the largest home crowd in recent memory. More than 33,000 turned out to see Duke kick off the season.

If the Blue Devils want to see that again they will need to start winning. That starts with preparation for the Army game next Saturday.

If Duke can go to Army and come out with a win then they can forget about the loss to Richmond and gets some momentum for the rest of the season.
A few things:
1. I'd love to see 33,000 in Michie for Duke. When was the last time Army had a winning record? I hate to say it but it was 1996. There is a lot of potential for this to be a special game at Michie Stadium, so by all means attend if you have the chance to go.

2. As illustrated in the above quote, Army has to go into this one prepared, their mental mistakes and silly penalties need to be left in week 1.

3. Again drawn from the selection above, It's not the Black Knights' job to wait around and help Duke forget about the Richmond loss. If I'm Army I want to lay a loss on the Blue Devils just like the Spiders did. This game is an early barometer for Army's season and the Knight's performance vs Duke should give us an idea as to how Army stacks up against most of their schedule.
