Duke Looks For More Growth In Cutcliffe's 3rd Year

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- When David Cutcliffe showed up at Duke, he had no idea just how far the Blue Devils were from being competitive.

Since then, they've come so far that his current job looks better to him than the one at Tennessee did.

Cutcliffe is beginning his third season in Durham, and he's aiming to keep the Blue Devils moving toward their first bowl game since 1994.

Duke has won nine games in two years under Cutcliffe after winning a total of eight in the five years before his arrival. And for a change, the Blue Devils weren't picked last in the Coastal Division.

The key position for Duke is at quarterback. Sean Renfree hopes to replace four-year starter Thad Lewis. Renfree worked his way back from a knee injury that ended his redshirt freshman season early.

    Duke does have the potential to reach a bowl game, maybe they can beat the Tar Heels to become eligible. It will also be big day in Durham when the Crimson Tide rolls into town.

    Watch out peeps! This is deadfish's breakout pick since they had such a great recruiting class! He's predicting 13-0 with a National Championship and better offensive numbers than his own beloved Trojans. I myself think he's a little too excited about Duke's chances, but don't tell him that. After all, they had a better recruiting class than everybody, right deadfish? That must mean they're invincible! Usher in the Duke dynasty, they had an amazing recruiting class and can't be stopped! Right deadfish?
