November has been unkind to Duke and David Cutcliffe. Since Cutcliffe became coach in 2008, the Blue Devils are 1-12 in the month. Duke hasn't been to a bowl game since 1994 and was set to end that skid in 2009 when the team entered November with a 5-3 record. But as form would have it, the team lost all four games. Overall, Cutcliffe is 15-33. The team enters 2012 saddled with a seven-game losing streak. The Blue Devils will have to win a bunch of games early if they are to entertain any hopes of ending the bowl drought. Perhaps incoming freshman Hud Mellencamp, the son of rocker John Mellencamp, can help. The younger Mellencamp, who did not play high school football but was an accomplished boxer in Indiana, plans to walk on as a defensive back.
