The 2012 Duke Blue Devils will be led by 5th year head coach David Cutcliffe as he tries to improve an overall record of 3-9 from 2011. The Devils were 1-7 in the ACC, placing them last in the Coastal Division. Coach Cutcliffe’s goal since he took the position at Duke has been to get his team, a team that hasn’t participated in a postseason since 1994, a long-awaited bowl appearance. This is no easy feat, as any head coach could tell you, especially for a team that from 1997 to 2007 had a win-loss record from of 13-90. Yet, Coach Cutcliffe has confidence in his Devils team and with solid players like quarterback Sean Renfree and wide receiver Conner Vernon, its hard not to see why. Duke’s defense is still young so expect them to develop as the season progresses. Cutcliffe even has several new recruits who can definitely make an immediate impact on both the defensive and offensive sides. The 2012 NCAA season may very well be the start of a turnaround for the Duke Blue Devils. Get your tickets with Gold Coast Tickets and be there to watch the games live.
