Elko Urbanism: The end of an era?

(02/09/24 6:29am)

And in a blink of an eye, it was all over. After a season full of so much hope, everything fell apart with remarkable speed. Less than 24 hours after a triumphant victory over Pitt, Blue Devils football coach Mike Elko stepped on a private jet headed for College Station, Texas, to sign a contract as the new Texas A&M head coach. Soon after, a cascade of Blue Devils hit the transfer portal, making it clear that the Elko Era was officially over. Those happy memories of storming the field after knocking off Clemson, getting hyped for College Gameday and savoring back-to-back bowl victories are now all things of the past.

(02/08/24 9:42pm)

It was a bit of a rocky road last year for Duke. After a stellar 2022 regular season that featured a consistent top-10 ranking, the Blue Devils struggled pretty immediately in the postseason, falling in their first matchup of the ACC tournament and in their second of the NCAA tournament. The disappointment only continued into 2023. Conference play was Duke’s Achilles’ Heel. After a 6-2 ACC slate in 2022, the Blue Devils ended at 1-8 in the 2023 regular season.

(02/08/24 7:57pm)

Hedwig Höss (Sandra Hüller) discusses her love of her well-kept garden. The camera cuts between marigolds, sunflowers and roses, finally landing on a single hibiscus. Its red hue slowly envelopes the entirety of the screen. The silent beauty of the garden is overtaken by a droning, rumbling bass that is intermixed with anonymous suffering. The noise is that of the Auschwitz-Birkenau crematoriums. Hedwig’s husband, Rudolph (Christoph Friedel), is its commandant and their family lives on the other side of the camp’s walls.

Duke softball 2024 season preview

(02/08/24 4:26am)

A couple decades down the line, Duke fans will look to this year as a pivotal one in the trajectory of the Blue Devils’ youngest varsity team to date. In its sixth season of existence last year, “Team Six” earned the right to host the program’s first NCAA Super Regional in a campaign that saw Duke establish itself as one of the better teams in the country. However, at the tournament, the Blue Devils still stood just short of the best. With the wind in its sails after a strong run in the ACC tournament, punctuated by freshman ace Cassidy Curd’s no-hitter, Duke welcomed Stanford to town, and was brought back down to earth in a two-game sweep.
