Some points of discussion: the Yellow Jackets’ triple-option offense, how playing Navy will help Duke and whether Georgia Tech’s defense can stop Thaddeus Lewis and Eron Riley.

Talking Football: Duke-Virginia Video Preview

After Duke’s bye week, we’re back to preview the Blue Devils’ ACC opener against Virginia Saturday at noon in Wallace Wade Stadium. The crummy weather forced us inside to the hallowed halls of 301 Flowers, home of The Chronicle.

On the docket this time: Virginia’s quarterback woes, Duke’s thriving offense, the looming schedule and, of course, predictions.

Talking Football: Duke-Navy Video Preview

We’re back for another week of video podcasting our preview for this weekend’s Duke-Navy game Saturday at noon in Wallace Wade Stadium. We’ve shifted spots again—this time, we’re looking at the Clocktower Quad and Main West Quadrangle is right behind us. The Blue Devils walk right through the area when they embark on their Devil Walk to the stadium two and a half hours before their Saturday tilts.

A few points of discussion this time: Navy’s triple-option offense (of course), the impact of a potential Duke win and the dynamic emerging duo of wideouts Eron Riley and Johnny Williams. Plus, our picks.

Talking Football: Duke-Northwestern Video Preview

We’re back for another week of video podcasting our preview for this weekend’s Duke-Northwestern game at 7 p.m. Saturday in Wallace Wade Stadium. This time, we shifted locations to the ledge of the field in Wally Wade—where the wind was less of a factor, but the sun was just as powerful.

Some points to consider: the effects of last year’s Duke win over Northwestern, the effect of Tropical Storm Hanna and, of course, our players to watch and picks.

Hope you enjoy, and feel free to offer your picks and comments below.

Talking Football: Video Preview of Duke-JMU

Ben Cohen, The Chronicle’s sports editor, and Matthew Iles, sports managing editor and lead football beat writer for the past two seasons, discuss the Blue Devils’ opening day matchup against James Madison. This video was filmed on the steps of the Duke Chapel Thursday afternoon. We apologize in advance for the wind. We can’t control it.

This is the first of 12 video podcasts previewing football games, and we hope you’ll stay with us as we iron out the kinks. If you have questions for next week’s Northwestern preview, feel free to send an e-mail to bzc2@duke.edu or call The Chronicle’s office at 919-684-6404. Otherwise, enjoy.
