Talk about a team effort and balance Duquesne is currently ranked nationally FCS #4 offensively and #4 defensively in total offense and total defense.

Speaking of national rankings... If the Dukes had hung on at Bucknell, they'd be getting a few votes this week I'm sure!

The Duqiuesne/Monmouth game looks to be the early game of the year after they beat Villanova and RMU's early losses.

Monmouth will be tough. They have a very balanced attack and their QB, Kyle Frazier is extremely efficient. Against CC St. he was 21 for 27.

I forgot to mention that Bucknell is a much improved team from a year ago. They spanked Princeton yesterday 34-9 and are 3-1. I'd like to play them again though because it would be a different story. The Duke's should get some votes this week.

The Bucknell loss may be the best thing that ever happened to this team.

Re: "The Bucknell loss may be the best thing that ever happened to this team."

I think you're right, Shoey.

After the loss to Bucknell, I wrote:

"I'm a Line Coach and I was screaming at my computer screen (I watched the video stream.) throughout the entire game. Larry's 100+ yards came IN SPITE OF his offensive line."

I could not see the St. Francis game, and I only watched the Dayton and Valparaiso games on the video streams. From what I've been able to see and what I've heard, it appears that the O-Line has found their cojones.

Mr. McCoy is still a stud, but he hasn't had to do all the work himself in the last three games. The O-Line has been opening holes and protecting Patterson fairly well.

That being said, the schedule just gets tougher from here. I believe that the Bucknell loss just may have been the "brick upside the head" that the Dukes needed.

I'm still a bit concerned with our kickoff coverage, but if that's the only thing I find to be worried about at this point, that must be a VERY good sign!

GO DUKES!
