Duke, stop this charade

Duke has every right to be as bad in football as it desires, just as it is free to retain coach Ted Roof for years to come. But please, Duke, stop the football masquerade. Just stop it. Stop pretending that football matters. It's transparent. It's also agonizing. It's like watching a trapped animal gnaw off a foot. It's important to understand that unlike at most colleges, even those in the private sector, there's no motivation at Duke to become competitive in football. Other than the coaches and the players, no one even cares enough to press the issue. (Raleigh News & Observer)
