Duke has achieved some of the greatest success in the history of its football program under the guidance of David Cutcliffe. By this point, we know about the list: four straight bowl games, 27 wins over a three-year stretch of time (2013-15) and the program’s first bowl victory in over 50 years.
The Blue Devils have struggled at times in 2016 and have suffered their fair share of injuries, including a season-ending knee injury to one of the great players to ever put on the pads at Duke: defensive back DeVon Edwards. Despite some of those difficulties, though, there have been highs for the Blue Devils, too. Two weeks ago, behind the passing of freshman quarterback Daniel Jones, Duke upset Notre Dame in the shadow of Touchdown Jesus in South Bend.
Cutcliffe is known for being one of the most grounded and reasonable men in all of college athletics, but even he admits to David Glenn that he can become frustrated following a loss: “I have a fire burning in my belly still, and I can’t put that fire out.”
The head coach discussed this and several other topics, including preparing to deal with inclement weather this weekend, when he joined The David Glenn Show on Thursday.
