The 2023-24 Stats game is upon us, and Sam Klein returns to the show to guide us through it on Episode 553!

Before we get into the Stats Game, we quickly discuss a few topics, including Patrick Ngongba’s commitment to the Duke Blue Devils yesterday. We’re hoping one more 5 star recruit joins the huge number already in the class next season. We also give Sam a chance to reflect on Duke Football becoming bowl eligible using 3 different starting quarterbacks.

After the break, we get into the Stats Game, and the guys give predictions in 28 categories, from points per game to total walk-on points. Here are each of the categories:

-Points per game
