    Oh well, better luck next time. Maybe they will have another chance before you turn 60.

    If Duke's secondary can tighten up, it may be a close game. I would like to see Duke win this one for themselves and the ACC. It's been a long time just getting back.

    And don't forget to factor in the monies left on the table from all those dook Sour 16 and earlier flameouts.

    it about time d00k brings in some $ from that so called football program. They are getting awfully heavy to keep carrying. but I'll be very surprised if they can win it.

    I hope Duke wins one for the ACC. But I think it is unlikely.

    Belk Bowl (Dec. 27)

    Sean Renfree and Duke should be able to move the ball through the air against the Cincinnati defense.

    Duke has allowed nearly 600 yards per game in four losses since clinching bowl eligibility back on Oct. 20. The picture of the Blue Devils as a team "just happy to be there" is a common interpretation, but we think this bunch actually stayed hungry down the stretch and just faced a schedule against which its worn-down defense was simply outmanned. The Devils still have something to prove and Cincinnati is a fair fight for a fresher and healthier Duke squad that benefits from the long layoff as much as any team of the 2012 bowl season.

    Duke is the only team in the FBS sporting three receivers with more than 60 catches. Quarterback Sean Renfree is a fourth-year starter and the fully developed pupil of renowned quarterback whisperer David Cutcliffe, who went 4-1 in bowls as head coach at Ole Miss. The strength of a solid Bearcats defense that has seen few quality passing teams this season is its front seven, and against this secondary, Duke receivers will be open, and Renfree will find them.

    There's no doubt that the Cincinnati offense will hit some explosive rushing plays, but with not only head coach Butch Jones but also both coordinators and two more assistants already gone to Tennessee, this outfit may have too many disadvantages in preparation to overcome against an inspired, well-coached foe playing in front of a partisan crowd.

    The pick: Duke 31, Cincinnati 28
