Mr. Stuff: I agree (for the most part). Although, despite the 'mediocre' season, they still earned a share of the title and are deserving of some credit. These kids put forth the time and hard work every day for this team and they deserve it. This team was supposed to do much worse this year-no one gave them a chance. The fact that they finished with a piece of the title is something they can be proud of, they proved everyone wrong. Unfortunately, you're right about the laying of eggs at road games. The same thing happened a few years ago at Albany, with a team that could have/should have went to the playoffs. I'm sure it comes as no surprise but I've heard from a few sources that this will be Jerry's last year. He had a good career at Duquesne, but it is time for a change of leadership. The Dukes need more than just a front office type coach. A more personable, enthusiastic guy that makes you WANT to play for him is the change this team needs to continue to climb the FCS ladder.

The dukes are teeming with young talent. It's the perfect time to bring in another HC, and hopefully OC. If the administration can put in the time to find a good coach, the long overdue playoff trip could be a reality very soon.

Are you clowns serious? This is FCS football for a small school that has a 3,000 seat stadium and virtually no marketing department to promote the product. Not to mention the academic standards and financial commitments it takes to attend Duquesne?

This was a great season considering all the games starters missed due to injury. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to win a conference championship? I highly doubt it. Maybe you should just go root for RMU?

Great season Dukes!
