CBSSports - Duke University finally begins investing in its overall athletic department. In a reversal of the norm, all the basketball money will help pay for renovations for the football stadium, specifically removing the track and enclosing the horseshoe for the former Rose Bowl site. The expected new capacity is ~40,000.
A nice pre-season overview of the Blue Devils in the Winston Salem paper (there's one in the Raleigh paper as well). Duke, as you probably are aware, will host the Crimson Tide on Sept. 18 and head coach David Cutcliffe is an Alabama grad (class of '76). One interesting piece of info here is that Duke is fielding a very young team; almost two thirds of the scholarship players are underclassmen.
