Sorry for the lateness of this—most of the week was spent working on my "personality profile of David Cutcliffe, who has brought his front-porch wisdom and own brand of Yogi-isms to Duke. Give it a read, if you'd like.
Now to the business of the day.
Duke vs. Georgia Tech
When: 3:30 p.m. (EST)
Where: Wallace Wade Stadium, Durham
Line: Georgia Tech by 8.5
TV/Radio: ESPNU, WDNC-620 AM, WKIX-102.9 FM
Time Machine: Nov. 17, 2012, Georgia Tech pulled away late for the 42-24 win. Also, a Georgia Tech offensive lineman, Ray Beno caught a fluke touchdown pass, just a sign it wasn't Duke's day.
Also, Nov. 17, 2012 was the day news broke that Maryland was leaving the ACC. I distinctly remember hearing that at halftime, in Georgia Tech's open-air press box and being completely surprised (as was everyone else).
Scouting Georgia Tech (1-0)
This will really be the first test of the year for the Yellow Jackets—the 70-0 thrashing of Elon two weeks ago finished with a running clock. Ken Sugiura was kind enough to give us an overview of Georgia Tech earlier in the week, which you should check out if you missed it.
