Does Duke football have a future?

JTaps: Duke Football's new coach, David Cutcliffe, has made all the difference. Having led Ole Miss to four bowl games in six seasons and been the mentor for both Peyton and Eli Manning, Cutcliffe has a lot to bring to Duke Football. And he's already leaving his mark-the season- opening win over JMU ended the 16-game home losing streak for the Blue Devils. It was their first win at home since September 17, 2005. Coach Cut is changing the way we play football.

Bolt, the first 3D computer-animated film from Walt Disney Animation, has a lot going for it. The premise-a TV star dog doesn't realize his "powers" are a sham-is as fresh as any. A gripping, action-packed opening sequence is equal to any car chase involving Bourne or Bond. And there's a genuine, heart-tugging finale that only the suits at Disney could manufacture.

You don't need to be a conspiracy theorist to think that something is amok at the Duke University Police Department. Officer attrition has been as high as 50 percent since Aaron Graves, vice president for campus safety and security, arrived two years ago and there remain questions outstanding regarding the department's conduct during the lacrosse incident a few years back.

Upon opening just two years ago, Von der Heyden quickly became the place to see-and-be-seen on campus, usurping the BC (was it ever?) and the ellipticals in Wilson (left side). Now, apparently word has spread beyond the campus limits. Sources tell RM that former Today host and current lightweight evening news anchor Katie Couric was spotted sipping coffee and making sweet love to her Blackberry inside the great glass box. In Durham with her daughter Ellie, a prospective member of the class of 2013, Couric hung out while Ellie took in a campus tour. Some say Couric may have flown down South in a desperate effort to moderate a Democratic presidential primary debate in the Tar Heel State-an honor which as of press time still had eluded her. FYI: If debate organizers are looking for snark over substance, RM is still available.

Spotted: Freshman b-ball phenoms Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith shooting spitballs at innocent passersby on the Plaza while waiting for their milkshakes at the Victoria's Sweets cart. Singler leveraged his six-foot, eight-inch frame to target students cutting up the staircase from Kilgo, while Smith protected his flank on the main West Campus Plaza. Not seen: A phalanx of dark-suited managers rushing to mop up the residue.
