Early forecast has Duke atop ACC Coastal chase in 2014
903 Hail Providence Jan 15, 2:42 p.m.
The first of many early predictions of Duke repeating their Coastal Division Championship...
So without further delay, the predicted order of finish, with last season’s records in parentheses.
* DUKE (10-4, 6-2): Based strictly on returning personnel and 2013 performance, the Devils would be unquestioned preseason chalk. The return of receiver Jamison Crowder, quarterbacks Anthony Boone and Brandon Connette, four starting linemen and a host of tailbacks promise another dynamic offense, much like the one that nearly outscored Texas A&M and Johnny Football in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Special teams are solid, though the defense could decline absent end Kenny Anunike and cornerback Ross Cockrell.
The question is, how will Duke handle expectations? Media have picked the Devils to finish last, or next-to-last, every season since 2000. This year will be different. This year, Duke will be among the hunted. Big difference.
