Time to come out of the woodwork everybody. You know who you are, we're a different breed of college football fan. I like to make fun of the Gophers, it's how I cope with it, but it's torture on the inside. :cry:

We're the fans of teams who are ahead at halftime against that top 25 team, we know the implosion is coming, but we think that maybe, just maybe this is the time that it won't come. But it always does.

We're the fans who never don't get to debate about whether our team is underrated at number 16.

We're the fans who stick by our favorite team even though, more often than not, we're irrelevant.

It's hard to believe that Minnesota has won like 6 national championships and 20 conference championships. Haven't won a national championship since 1960 and haven't won a conference title since 1967 :lol:

Anyways, here is a place for you to post your frustrations about getting beat up by all the big boys (I hope I'm not the only one who supports a bad team on here) :lol:

I'll be surprised if the Gophers get to 6 or 7 wins this year....

Here's a Duke fan. We haven't been relevant since the '90s. Our seasons are now defined by whether we beat UNC...another sucky football team.

History:

1938 - the Iron Dukes become one of 3 college teams to have ever gone through a season unscored upon. Duke reached their first Rose Bowl appearance, where they lost 7-3 when Southern California scored a touchdown in the final minute of the game on a pass from a second string quarterback to a third string tight end.

1942 - Duke reaches another Rose Bowl. This one is played at Duke because of WWII and the fear of a Japanese attack on the west coast. Duke lost. :(

From 1953 to 1962, Duke won 6 of the first 10 ACC championships.

Duke's last ACC championship was in 1989. They lost to Texas Tech in the All-American bowl. :(

1994, the first season under coach Fred Goldsmith, the team raced out to an 8-1 record, and was briefly ranked as high as #13 in the country before losing the last two games of the season 24-23 to North Carolina State and 41-40 to arch-rival North Carolina. The 1994 team played in the program's first New Years Day Bowl game since 1962, falling to Wisconsin 34-21 in the Hall Of Fame Bowl. :(

We're 3-5 in bowl games all-time. :oops:

Duke is consistently ranked at or near the top of the list of Division I-A schools which graduate nearly all of their football players. Duke has topped the list 12 years, earning it the most Academic Achievement Awards of any university. :)

I expect we'll get maybe 3 wins this year...1 in the ACC.

NC State.... sucky non existent defense, but arguably the best QB in the ACC. Go figure. :(

Beating UNC is always nice though. Excuse me pounding them which we have done recently. :D

I have faith that they will take another step forward this year and may not officially suck any longer.

Our starting CB's as of November last year

*Declared for the NFL draft, went undrafted, and is about to be cut by the Eagles
*tore his acl
*and transferred

Our only good defensive player is about to tear up the NFL.

We'll need to score 50 to win most weeks and with one QB who can't throw and another who apparently has offseason work ethic problems I'm not seeing that happening.

Counting down to Harbaugh...

FTFY

The idea of best in the league is laughable. Ponder, Taylor, Jacoby Whatever at Miami, even Kyle Parker are well ahead of him. He's not even the best QB who's a Baseball Player in the conference.

***Oh, and sorry, forgot to add: Gamecock fan checking in. :wink:
