Forget it, Jake. It’s Duke.

David Cutcliffe just received a two year contract extension as a reward for guiding Duke to a 4-8 record this season.  That’s because in the words of his genius AD, Cutcliffe is “an elite player within the entire college football coaching community.”

Duke lost its last five games in a row this year.  By that standard, Gene Chizik must rank in the elite of the elite.

I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Cutcliffe if Duke becomes bowl eligible in the near future.  Kevin White has a superb track record when it comes to getting excited about (and overpaying) head football coaches.

    At least Cutcliffe is not at Tennessee anymore bringing pain and sorrow to UGA.

    Where would you rather be head coach- Duke for $1.5 million and a contract extension for winning 4 games or UGA for $2.8 million with pissed off fans for eeking 9 wins?

    If CMR only wins 4 games he’d be toast a full week before the Auburn game.

    That’s why he’s paid 2.8 and why 2.8 is medicore pay in our league.

  3. Since last going to a bowl game in 1994, Duke has reached the illustrious 4-win threshold twice before this season. Well done, Cut. Also:
