Miami Duke Game Thread Comment Highlights

Joel Auerbach

How do you differentiate between Duke (Johnson) and Duke (University)?

So I woke up Saturday morning, put on the orange and green, and was ready to watch the Coastal Champion Miami Hurricanes extract some revenge against their instate rivals. Then, to my dismay, I turned on the TV and saw a barely bowl eligible Georgia Tech team, last seem getting their hearts ripped out by our killer teddy bear, Mike James. I do a little googling and found there is some doofus named Ned Sharpei that bought some meals and drinks for very mediocre players under the Coker and Shannon regimes. You guys hear about this? I think someone should look into this.

So instead of weeping over our lost ACC title (c'mon, FSU barely beat Georgia Tech) I put my energy into reliving the Duke (Johnson) crushes Duke (University) shoot out in Durham, NC. And here we go.

Who doesn't swoon over quickly released, wobbly passes that get to their intended target without getting picked off? I'm a simple man

Are they talking about our Kyle Wright?

And so ends a great season with a lot of hope for next season. I'd like to think game thread comments had a great, if not entirely regular, run. I'll be back in the next few weeks with some end of the season awards for our most proficient posters. And seriously, someone should check our Ned Sharpei.
