As we begin the last week of the regular season, I wanted to take this opportunity to, first off, thank you for your great support of our program and for being part of a great year in Cameron Indoor Stadium. It means so much to our players to have your collective strength behind them when we play in "our house." We need your passion and you've brought it. Thank you for being a special part of our team.
Later tonight at 8 p.m. against Florida State, though, we need it even louder, even more passionate, even more Duke blue and even hungrier, as we pursue our 11th win of the ACC season. And just as importantly, it's a special night for your classmates-three seniors (David McClure, Greg Paulus and Marty Pocius) who have represented the program so well during their time at Duke. We need to honor them with our best game of the year in Cameron-our loudest and our most passionate.
I know we can do it-two hours of complete Cameron chaos should be our lasting memory of the 2008-2009 home season. I hope you'll join us and be a part of this special night. I can't wait to be in that moment with you!
