The David Cutcliffe Era Has Begun

Duke is a much improved football team this year. Under the leadership of offensive guru David Cutcliffe, also known as He Who Makes Mannings, they've actually won a few games, beaten multiple bowl-eligible teams, and not been, well, embarrassing.

That being said, it bears noting that in last week's shockingly winnable game with Virginia Tech, Duke completed two (2) forward passes for twenty (20) yards.

Total.

The first completion apparently didn't come until well into the second half.

Now, I know the Dolphins are experimenting with direct snaps and the single wing, but this is ridiculous. On the other hand, if Cutcliffe can keep Duke close with a monster program like VaTech without using half the offensive arsenal, perhaps that's an indication of what a truly impressive coaching job he's actually done.
