Duke looked like a team that could possibly threaten to become Bowl eligible at the beginning of the year with a new coach and veteran team, but it just wasn't in the cards. They got out of the gate at 3-1, and the promise was there. But disappointment followed. The optimism was based on their 30.8 ppg scoring spree per game in those first four games, but as the competition increased, the offense disapperaed. The Duke offense has gradually declined as the season has progressed. The 30.8 ppg has diminished to 14 ppg in the last seven, and even further recently at just 8.3 ppg in their last three. North Carolina suffered a similar fate, when they lost Tate for the year. An offense that was producing 31.8 ppg in the first six has declined to 21.8 ppg the last five. The Tar Heels defense has come to life, as they have allowed over 24 points just once this season. These teams played to a 20-14 final last year, and I think a similar score is in order this season.
