Things were bad in Durham from 1999-2007, a stretch that saw the Blue Devils win only 13 games. At one point, Duke backed out of the final three games of a four-game series against Louisville because the Cardinals were simply too good. Louisville sued for breach of contract, seeking a penalty of $150,000 a game, but Duke attorneys won the case by arguing that its team was so bad, scheduling any opponent would be a suitable replacement. That puts in perspective what David Cutcliffe has accomplished in his two seasons as coach. He is 9-15, including a 5-7 record last season. The Blue Devils' next step is finishing with a winning record and ending a bowl drought that dates to 1994. It might not happen in 2010. The schedule features home games against Alabama and Miami and a trip to Virginia Tech.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted. Last year, the site displayed 69 posters.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com. Thanks to Mike!
