The Duke Blue Devils holding their first practice at Independence Stadium. Now this Duke team has faced a lot of adversity this season, having beaten the likes of teams like Northwestern and Army in non conference games early on. To then being bitten with the injury bug steadily throughout the year, but coach Cutcliffe has never doubted the talent on his roster.
“David Cutcliffe – There’s been some really tough losses some gut wrenching losses, a lot of great wins, euphoric wins but as I said for this team in August I don’t think I had to tell our players our players knew we had a championship football team. I knew, I won’t tell you we would have beaten Clemson cause you don’t know at their place but they would have had to play us twice.”
