    Hey, Heel DA, what was your bowl attendance this year? Figured I would pick a bowl game you actually played in recently.

    who said i didnt believe, Duke may very have sold more of their allotted tickets than the other schools. That wasnt my point.

    You really believe Duke will have more Duke fans in the stands than Clemson will have Tiger fans in their bowl game? (Lets see just how ignorant you really are)

    This is great for them after not being in a bowl for so many years (18).

    I actually saw one advertisement today that offered free transportation and tickets to the state bowl game along with a $10 stipend for popcorn and drinks. LMAO!

    I'm just looking forward to watching an ACC team play football! I love football and tonight is a chance to watch a local team in a bowl. Get the popcorn, snickers, and Coke ready!

    Go Duke!

    Sounds good to me. VT playing in Orlando with a 6-6 record will not bring many Hokies this year.

    Well look at how long they've been saving their "bowl-game money"

    Duke has sold more bowl tickets than Ohio State, Miami, UNC, and Penn State combined.

    UNC fans are lied to so often by the people that run their favorite programs, it's no wonder they just assume anything that's printed is a lie. Even if it's something posted on a TV station's website like http://www.wbtv.com/.

    Not surprising that UNCheat fans wouldn't believe something about Duke unless it is negative.

    BTW, how many tickets did UNCheat fans buy for their bowl game this year?? Oooooooops

    Kinda hard to determine that, They can only go by sales of allotments to the schools, but most fans buy tickets through other avenues for better prices and usually better seats...

    Pretty sure they`ll be many more FSU and Clemson fans at their bowl game that
    Duke fans in Charlotte...

    And even if this thread wasn't a joke, the more actual puke fans that really are going to show up, the more that will be humiliated. Win Win

    Guess that beats the attendance at the Independence Bowl, 2011.

    Wonder if that'll be enough to shut up the unc-cheat trolls? Doubt it.

    http://www.wbtv.com/story/20428629/weather-impacting-the-belk-bowl Organizers report ticket sales are strong. Close to 50,000 tickets have been sold, thanks in part to Duke fans.

    "Duke has sold more tickets to its bowl game this year," Charlotte Collegiate Football Director Will Webb said. "Than any other ACC school has done to their bowl game."
