Duke's improved with Cutcliffe as coach. They'll be lookin' to put up some points, could be a shootout.

And you guys complain about Snyder's scheduling. LOL!

This year's lineup is like a BCS slate compared to Snyder's cupcake parade. UTEP, Duke, and Southern Miss, Shardwurm? South Florida the last couple years?KU's kept an easy slate for years to be sure, but then we weren't vying for BCS games every year like during Bill's tenure. When KSU starts scheduling something other than directional schools you can snark, 'til then, shut your pie hole.

lol. Whatever you say jaywalker. Whatever you say.

University of Texas El-Paso isn't a direction...but it's a 'city' and Duke - well, they're definitely a perennial powerhouse - last bowl appearance was 1994. Their all-time record is 447 - 460 - 37. In the last six years they're 12 - 58.

Yeah...definitely a BCS lineup. Check your facts before you spew. Thanks.

A BCS lineup compared to....compared to......compared to KSU's. Keep the context, junior. Two games against Conference USA, including a team that's been to a bowl 10 of the last 11 years, and a game against a rising ACC squad is a hell of a lot stronger than games against the Ohio Valley, Sun Belt, and A-10. How 'bout checkin' your facts before you respond. You won't look so foolish.

So Shardwurm if Duke at 447-460-37 overall makes them lesser of a BCS school what is K State at 443-584-41?

For what it's worth I which is'nt much I got my numbers off wiki and they had K State at number 82 overall W/L record and Duke at 83
