Press Conference: David Cutcliffe

Duke football coach David Cutcliffe talks with the news media on Monday. Duke (1-5, 0-3 ACC) takes on Virginia Tech (5-2, 3-0 ACC) on Saturday.

Opening Statement

“We had a good practice Sunday night, and I was extremely impressed with our players. They’re spirited; they refuse to hang their heads. We’re so close in so many areas, and I’m hoping that’s part of it. We’ve made more than enough mistakes to last an entire season. We all know that, and it’s resulted in the record we have. We went back out there today with a lot of intensity and a lot of contact. They are willing to do what it takes to get better and as long as they maintain that willingness, we have the ability to take this team and turn things in our direction. We obviously have a huge challenge going to play an extremely talented Virginia Tech team. We worked very physically today in practice to prepare for a very physical Virginia Tech team when we go to Blacksburg. We need a good solid week’s worth of work, and I think we will get that and get on the bus Friday expecting to play well.”
