Duke looks for consistency amid encouraging start
DURHAM, N.C. — At times, Duke looks plenty capable of snapping the nation’s longest bowl drought and finally winning more often than it loses.
But sometimes, they look like those same old Blue Devils.
They’re preparing to face struggling Memphis this week and appear on track to open 3-1 for only the second time since 1994.
But one question persists: Which is the real Duke team?
The one that averaged 50 points and 414 total yards in routs of Florida International and North Carolina Central? Or the one that couldn’t get out of its own way in a blowout loss at Stanford?
Cornerback Ross Cockrell said Tuesday that “we have a whole season to find out” and coach David Cutcliffe says every game’s a must-win “when you’re in the shoes we’re in.”
