    Duke has not played in 10 days (and still won’t for another 3), and in that time jumped from #8 to #3.

      It may have something to do with strength of schedule. Duke is rated #1 on the “Team Rankings” website. We are ranked 93rd, but that will soon change.

    I’m just curious, but am I the only person on here that cannot get this site to perform the way it used too?
    For a site this popular it’s ridiculous the amount of errors that occur. Since this site was ‘updated’ recently it’s been all down hill.

      I get a lot of strange errors.

      Like when I click on expand, the bottom half disappears. Then I click the expand button a couple more times and it finally works.

      Odd.

    But software updates are always screwy especially when it’s a MAC interfacing with Microsoft.
