In this story from the Duke Chronicle, Derek Saul hits on something we’ve been wondering about: will Duke’s D try to really hit Chazz Surratt hard? You know...something kind of like this.

Surratt, you’ll remember, committed to Duke before flipping to UNC and pretty much dissing Duke in the process, thus provoking something we’ve never seen: making the avuncular David Cutcliffe enraged.

You have to think his erstwhile teammates haven’t forgotten and with UNC’s offensive line riddled with injuries, they have a chance to extract some revenge.

However, Saul is also probably right when he says this game will most likely be a shootout. Both quarterbacks can really get it going.
