Duke is a school, that for obvious reasons, is mainly associated with basketball when it comes to athletics. This year, however, the football team has experienced a level of success that it hasn’t in a very long time. The Blue Devils find themselves at 8-2 and in control of their own destiny in the ACC. Some are hesitant to believe that this run could last beyond this year, but head coach David Cutcliffe thinks otherwise:  Cutcliffe: “This isn’t a flash in the pan, we’re going to be good next year.” — ESPN ACC (@ESPN_ACC) November 20, 2013 Only time will tell if the program will actually experience more long-term success, but it’s refreshing to hear that Cutcliffe believes that things are in place for that potential success to occur. A strong finish to this season would certainly help to build a positive vibe around the program and some momentum to carry forward. Duke takes on in-state rivals Wake Forest and North Carolina to close the season, and could potentially face Florida State in the ACC Championship game. It will be fun to see how the Blue Devils fare the rest of the season.
