That would be awesome.
Cyrus Hobbi will be stepping in for Khaled Holmes which IMO is a huge downgrade.... Holmes is a very smart young man and really holds that line together... Very intrigued by this matchup.
I don't think people realize it but Duke was actually a decent tune-up for for Standord as the Cardinals prepare to take on the Trojans.
I follow Duke football and Duke's offense is heavily passing-oriented. Coach Cutcliffe has tried to establish a run game but that's mainly to keep the defense honest and create vertical threats.

I dont really follow Duke football. Who is there main reciever?
Conner Vernon is the primary WR.
Coach Cutcliffe has recently recruited a lot of tall WRs that can double as slimmer/faster TEs (Schneider, Blakeney, Nash). Unfortunately, that entire group is young.
Thats cool so the future is bright for the Devils atleast offensively.
What is your take on Crowder?
Duke has a strong offensive core for the future. For instance, Coach Cutcliffe has also amassed some talent at RB with Shaquille Powell and Jela Duncan to complement Josh Snead and Juwan Thompson. (But I think Powell and Duncan are redshirting this year.)
Discovering Thomas Sirk - a 6'5" QB built like a LB with dual threat ability - was Coach Cutcliffe's biggest recruiting coup in 2012 imo. He's redshirting this year but with a strong spring Sirk will probably be the leader to replace Renfree as the starting QB.
However, Duke's biggest weaknesses - the OLine and the DLine - have prevented Coach Cutcliffe from being able to maximize the underrated players he has found at the skill positions.
I like Crowder a lot because of his versatility. He contributes on both offense and on special teams. He has had a good start to the season but I want to see how Crowder performs in conference play to accurately gauge how far he has come in one year.

Thank you Frank +1
Who thinks Tennessee can finally beat Florida?
I like their chances, the offense is so explosive and Florida's has been very mediocre. That plus home field and I see Tennessee finally winning one.
Yep, I think UT wins also.
Yup I think they win, but I wont be betting on that game.
UNLV got hosed on that last drive. That should of been spotted a first down.
I wish UL-Monroe would've won today.
Auburn would be 0-3 and staring into a loaded canon.
Stanford with a long kickoff return to start the game.
Stanford's upset of Souther Cal just reaffirmed what Michigan fans have known since the days of Schembechler: dominating defense combined with competent/reliable offense win big games and championships.
Not sure I'm real happy about Stanford beating USC, it really just set up another all-SEC national title game, hasn't it?
After watching this game, it's clear to me that the top teams in the SEC (Bama, LSU, and Georgia) would crush USC.
I know that the SEC's dominance is annoying especially for Big Ten fans (since we were once the top conference) but the praise for the SEC is clearly justified.
I don't know about Georgia but you are probably right about the others, but as a simple matter of interest I don't think I would even tune in for another Bama-LSU title game. And I reckon millions of others would feel the same way, it's just not good for college football.
I thought USC got out coached bad. They didn't adjust to the pressure Stanford brought at all.
Deer, headlights. That was the impression you got. You know your coaching staff is basically stunned if you call a run into a blitz up the middle when you need a TD with like a minute left.
Can i get a Synopsis of Red Cedar after the loss?
That's part of it, but USC's loss of their OC was huge. They ended up playing a RS FR at OC and no matter what they did Stanford's experienced front seven was going to be able to take advantage of that.

As my best freind, who is a Spartan fan said. "They are cannibalizing each other over there". Took a quick peek and seems to be a lot of fire most the coaching staff and start the freshman WRs. Lots of doom and gloom!
Oh yeah Stanford made my weekend, "We are Losers". Kiffin got completely out coached, he had Barkley under center in the two minute offense. Completely over rated, well done Pat Haden. Probably didn't inquire with many of the Oakland Raider administration on how big of a sleaze Kiffin is.
Harbaugh plays Carroll twice each year in the NFC west.
I hope the 49ers wipe the field with the Seachickens and Harbaugh gives that sly smile when asked about their relationship in the press conference, until Carroll gets fired.
