For those expecting public soul searching in the aftermath of Duke’s poor performance at Miami—don’t.
“I don’t want to overevaluate this game,” head coach David Cutcliffe said. “Most importantly, I just want to continue on the path. Next week is just a new opportunity. Nobody needs to doubt anything.”
Cutcliffe made a point to praise the Blue Devils’ effort and attitude, and, obviously, both are important. Right now, there is just a disconnect between want-to and results, especially on the offensive side of the ball.

Each week, I’ll (hopefully) talk to a beat writer who covers Duke’s opponent. Today, we have Matt Porter, who covers Miami for the Palm Beach Post. Links to his work can be found here. Matt is also on Twitter at @mattyports.

Tulane was sloppy in all three phases of the game, and Duke was there to take advantage. The Blue Devils scored 21 points off Tulane's five turnovers, including 14 directly from pick-sixes.

Three games in, and I have no clue how competitive Duke will be in the Coastal Division.

The Blue Devils are now 2-0, thanks to their 34-17 win at Troy last weekend. Of course, like in any game, some things worked and some things needed work.

The Blue Devils were able to put aside a quarter to forget and outscore the Trojans 31-3 over the final three quarters. Quarterback Anthony Boone started making more accurate throws and reads on option plays, including both his touchdown runs (30 yards in the second quarter, thanks to a nice block from Shaquille Powell, and 5 yards in the third).
