A Blue Devil Dynasty: Year One Preseason

The first installment of our quest to build a Duke football dynasty with EA Sports' NCAA 2006

Join us as we build a dynasty in Wallace Wade with the help of EA Sports' NCAA Football 2006.

Season Preview

Duke enters the 2005 season with high hopes with a new addition to the virtual coaching staff, and some key off season recruiting additions. Offensively the Devils are led by junior signal caller Mike Schneider, senior running back Cedric Dargan, and senior wideout Ronnie Elliot.

The defensive unit is this team's strength with senior RE Phillip Alexander and junior cornerback Jeremy Edwards rated as the best players.

The major concern for Duke is along the offensive line, which is inexperience and rated by EA as the weakest group on the roster. Conversely the team's strength will be along the defensive line and special teams unit.
