Again, Duke highly ranked and not proving they should be when playing against a team they should have beat by 20. Just being Duke, shouldn't automatically mean top 10. Looks like another long season for the dukies.

how legitimate is that 62-game, non-conference, at-home winning streak given the opponents K schedules?

ACC officials do an amazing job of assuring ACC wins against non-conference opponents. I've seen some of the most lop-sided officiating imaginable in these contests.

I know nobody cares, so long as their "heros" win but honestly, some day the NCAA needs to step in on this lack of integrity.

Maybe it's just me, but I've seen some very questionable calls go Duke's way when the game is on the line. And no, I'm not hating, it is fact - just go back and watch tape of some of those games, both conference and nonconference.

No doubt. There is a history, especially in Cameron Indoor. The Clemson game from a couple of years ago was a j-o-k-e.
