Laugh at me if you want, but Carl Franks is putting this program in the right direction. I have heard nothing but positive vibes from spring practice, and he hauled in a great recruiting class by our standards. In the next 5 years, Duke football won't be a joke anymore.</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">The hard facts...Since 1995, Duke is 12-57 overall and 6-50 in the ACC, plus you guys haven't won a game since last century and it won't get any easier this year.

Dook's 2002 Schedule...
8/31 vs. East Carolina
9/7 vs. Louisville
9/14 @ Northwestern
9/21 @ Florida State
9/28 @ Navy
10/5 vs. Virginia
10/12 @ Wake Forest
10/19 @ North Carolina State
10/26 vs. Maryland
11/2 vs. Clemson
11/16 @ Georgia Tech
11/23 vs. North Carolina

No gimmies in that schedule...look out Dookies, it could be 36 losses in a row <img border="0" alt="[Laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laughing.gif" /> </font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">The games I think we can win:

Navy
Northwestern
ECU (a bit of a longshot, but a fair chance)
Wake Forest
Louisville

I see us winning two of those games, and surprising one other team, thus getting 2 wins. We definately should be able to beat Navy, and the other four we could beat. I think we have the potential to upset a UVA or NCSU on the right day. Don't laugh at the possibility of 3 wins, I believe it will happen. We also have 1 more game next year than last year.

Here is a brief rundown of Duke's impact players.

Ben Patrick: incoming freshman
He is the Mike Dunleavy of football. At his HS, he played QB, punter, TE, tail back, defensive line, offensive line. He is 6'4" and will probably play TE for Duke next year. Could take first team ALL-ACC Mike Hart's spot due to graduation. Ben was rated 4 stars out of 5 by rivals (much better at ranking football than basketball, IMO) and rated the 15 best TE in the nation; the cornerstone of Duke's incoming class.

</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Only a Dookie would compare Mike Dunleavy to a football player in a positive way. <img border="0" alt="[Laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laughing.gif" /> If Mike Dunleavy ever played football he would be the kid who went home crying to mommy everytime he got hit.

I was comparing their versatility, just in case you didn't get that.

Don't count Wake as a gimmie game. They have improved incredibly under Jim Grobe. They won at UVA and came back from about a 25 point defecit to win at UNC last year. Plus they nearly upset Clemson and Tech.

Duke vs. Wake is no longer the Tidy Bowl. Duke vs. Navy.....now that's another story <img border="0" alt="[Laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laughing.gif" />

I'm not considering Wake a gimmie team. I just think that we have a realistic chance at beating them.

Dunleavy is a shooter, nothing more, he doesnt have a defensive presense, no post game nothing but a smooth shot, just because he is 6'9 and he can shoot doesnt mean he is versatile. For people to really believe that Dunlady is versatile is a joke really. If you wanted to compare him to someone who is really versatile how about a young Kordell Stewart or if you really wanted to compare him to a basketball player how about Jared Jefferies.
