No. 3 Duke men's soccer proves its merit in imperfect defeat of Notre Dame

(10/15/22 3:49pm)

Leading into the 2008 financial crisis, banks engaged in increasingly risky behavior justified by the fact that they were too big to fail. We know now that that logic led to one of the most disastrous collapses of any entity in history, and, ridiculous as it may seem, many sports teams have risen and fallen in the same way, too loaded with talent to see systemic flaws.

Hummingbirds are some of the planet’s most unique animals: green and pink feathers, wings that flutter 50 times per second, long, toothpick-like beaks.

Occasionally, you take notes from audio or video recordings or rely on the work of your colleagues to stay up to date. And over the course of several weeks or months, you review your material, extract trends, and try to impart some meaning to all the information you’ve collected.

(10/14/22 3:50am)

As the air chills in the Triangle with Halloween approaching, the 4-2 Blue Devils welcome archrival North Carolina for a duel Saturday night at Wallace Wade Stadium. The Tar Heels have become somewhat of a Michael Myers to Duke recently, killing its spirit by coming out on top in almost every competition. Just this year, North Carolina has trumped the Blue Devils in basketball (twice) and most recently in women’s soccer. Football has been no different: The Tar Heels have held possession of the Victory Bell since 2019.
