Eliot Williams to Leave Duke

The word is that Williams will be transferring to Memphis to be closer to his dying mother.  That is really sad.  Eliot was definitely an impact player in both regular season Duke victories over MD.  Given his personal trauma, it is hard to rejoice at this news even if it is likely to help the Terps next season.  Williams is a sublime athlete and c [...] Read More »

Duke Preview. Will It Be Jeckyl Or Hyde?

What's going to happen tomorrow night?  Does anyone actually know?  Does Gary Williams know which version of the Terps will show up?  Would you be willing to bet one way or another as to which team will show up?  Will MD get blown out by 40 or will they punch their ticket with an emphatic win?I sure as hell don't know. What I do know is that if the [...] Read More »

Duke Football Revisited

This is a story I first wrote about over the summer, but I found this on YouTube; and it I just had to share it.I'll recap for you: The University of Louisville sued Duke University for backing out of its obligation to travel to Louisville for a football game.

Why There Is Still Hope

I pretty much share everyone's thoughts on the Terps loss on Sunday night. They gave the game away, literally, in the 2nd half.
