Ex-Duke Gridder Fowler Suspended for PEDs

(06/10/08 2:30am)

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that former Duke and current Tennessee Titans linebacker Ryan Fowler has been notified by the NFL that he is facing a suspension due to a violation of the league's Performance Enhancing Drugs policy. Although Fowler's lawyer has emphatically stated that his client has never failed a drug or steroid test, the NFL said in a letter to Fowler that it "had 'credible information' Fowler 'purchased, used or supplied' performance enhancing drugs."

QB Spurns Duke, Commits to Maryland

(06/09/08 9:30pm)

Despite the lure of having David Cutcliffe, well-known for his quarterback grooming abilities, as his college head coach, Kernersville, N.C. native Danny O'Brien recently gave a verbal commitment to Maryland. The pro-style quarterback had been considering Duke and East Carolina along with the Terrapins.

Tale of Two Coaches

(03/24/08 2:11am)

WASHINGTON, D.C. — From the surface, the dichotomies between the programs of Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Huggins couldn't be sharper. Coach K's Duke programs have been consistently cited as the paragon of combining academic and athletic excellence, with the national title banners to prove that the two seemingly disparate elements of books and basketball can be combined successfully. Huggins, meanwhile, has carried a reputation of recruiting kids with dubious academic and personal issues in an all-out effort to win, all while burning bridges and jumping from school to school in the process.
