    2009 Duke

    Duke is a real "special" team. There is no speed on the team, no play makers on offense and no one can tackle on defense.

    Week 1 recap:
    Tough game especially considering on paper Kent is a worse team than Duke. Kent took an early 10 - 7 lead in the 1st quarter on a pick 6. Duke QB Thaddeus Lewis threw 3 interceptions and backup QB Renfree threw 1. Despite the turnovers Duke was able to take a 3 possession lead in the 4th quarter. Kent gave Duke a scare by scoring 2 touchdowns with just over 2 minutes left in the game. Kent just needed a field goal to tie the game but were not able to get the onsides kick they needed to have a chance to tie it up.

    Week 2 recap:
    Another tough game. Arkansas players were athletically superior on the field. The absence of head coach bmilley, who was not at the game for personal reasons, looked like it affected the players as they were not able to play up to their talent level. The Arkansas playcalling also suffered as the head coach normally calls the plays.

    Arkansas kicked a field goal to take a 20 - 14 lead with only 40 seconds left in the 1st half. In 3 passing plays Duke was able to move the ball all the way down the field and score a touchdown with 7 seconds left in the 1st half. Making the score Duke 21 - Arkansas 20. In the second half Duke dinked and dunked their way to 2 more touchdowns while holding Arkansas scoreless.
