Although I am not an alumnus of Duke, I have been attending Duke football games since 1957. I have been disappointed in the turnout from the student body at Duke football games the last few years, but Saturday night, the students were special.
Despite the fact that the Duke fans were out-numbered, the student body generated noise and enthusiasm that inspired the team.
This is a very young team and will need all the support that all the Duke fans can give. I am excited about attending the remaining games because this team is going to be fun to watch. There were around 1,000 students at the East Carolina game and it would be great if there were around 3,000 (or more) at the Louisville game. It will be a tough game, but with a lot of support, this Duke team is capable of winning.
See you on Saturday night!
