I'm going to play the optimist card here and say that the guys are just beat up, and that's why Saturday's game was so ugly and flat.
I will give credit to the defense, though. Duke isn't exactly Georgia Tech or Clemson, but they mostly did a fine job.
Overall, I thought the guys played well here and there. Some of the third down calls blew my mind. Are we not trying to keep drives alive?
The few extra days of rest couldn't be coming at a better time. Everyone better buckle up for next Thursday...
I'll be honest, I had to watch this game in parts, and I had a better time trying to figure out why Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries filed for divorce.
Note: My game feed dropped out between Martin's touchdown and Whitley's personal foul.
1. Antone Exum - Quiet most of the afternoon, except when he absolutely leveled one of the Duke receivers on the sideline. It should be noted that I saw him blanketing his assignment multiple times.
2. Josh Oglesby - Who would have thought his touchdown would be the game winner? He knows how to run tough.
3. Logan Thomas - Well, he certainly threw a lot of interceptions. I thought he was actually OK otherwise, but the first pick was just brutal. These last few games are a good time to start giving him more carries, right? By the way, very nice tackle on his first pick.
