I agree Hovis. To have a coach for the long haul sends a positive to the parents and players. Plus the fact is that a degree from Duke is way in front of most all schools in the ACC and beyond.

It should also be noted that most of these long contracts are done mostly for recruiting, so that as a coach you can go in a recruits house and assure him that you will be the coach all 4 or 5 years of his career. Any coach that is doing any kind of decent job has at least 5 years on his contract especially if he is older.

Appreciate your statement. Absolutely. Signing Coach Cut until this year is smart from the powers. Coach Cut has one of the best brains in football on any level. The man is genuine. I had the honor of talking to him 3 years ago in P'Hurst. It was like talking to your next door neighbor. UNC and State fans, and all ACC teams should respect Duke for several years. What some people don't even understand is that Duke has such high standards to even get into this esteemed University.

The hokie, always a stabilizing voice on these boards....do you agree the 2019 extension on Cut was good? Many heel fans here proclaim otherwise. I believe he has done well with what he has.

Interesting article. Who would have thought this. Coach Cut has made a believer out of many. State fans probably kicked Duke more than UNC on here. I remember when.... Duke football is on the up swing. Winning this year will bring in some recruits too. Wins make recruiting a bunch easier.

Well, as in their recent successful pgs. I don't think Paige will ever be a Felton, Lawson, and to a lesser degree Kbutter.

Yea injuries no good, but I'd say Scheyer ended pretty well, and cook is making great strides, Thornton leaves some to be desired, we will see if Paige can compare with the recent tar heel pgs's......I just don't see it.

The only decent dook PG in recent times only played 11 games for them.

I guess he doesn't realize it's also a sports forum, not a referendum on people's personal lives, I understand why u hate duke, as it is easy to translate envy into hate, cheer up maybe one day Marcus Paige will be a decent pg.
