- New opponents, Pitt top 2007-08 schedule
- "(Coach Ron) Everhart, who has received nothing but bad news the past several days, finally got some that made him smile yesterday when he learned that the MRI on Shawn James' left foot revealed nothing more than inflammation of the big toe ... Duquesne basketball will hold its
annual Red & Blue men's scrimmage Oct. 20 at 10 a.m. at Palumbo Center. The game is free. On the same day, Duquesne football faces Robert Morris at Rooney Field at 1 p.m. (as part of freshman parent weekend - ed.)

- "It has been an up-and-down off-season for Duquesne."
- Teams will fulfill the remaining three conference obligations by meeting twice those teams that have been classified in the same tier.
Tiers were set by league coaches and athletic directors based on projected team strength, and are expected to change annually. Teams expected to be the league's best, for example, will play one another twice to protect, and increase, their national power ratings. In previous years, regular-season rematches were based primarily on geography and established rivalries. (and those not expected ...)

- "Further complicating Baldonado's situation, The Associated Press has learned through court records that Baldonado was charged in May with felony domestic violence in Dade County, Fla., where he once attended and played for Miami Dade College. Baldonado has a girlfriend and a child there.
"... Baldonado, a native of Colombia, was admitted to the United States on a student visa, and it is uncertain if the charges against him or the fact that he is no longer a student could lead to a deportation hearing. Baldonado's Colombian passport apparently expired in 2004.
"... Baldonado's problems may not necessarily be a major setback to Duquesne's program or image. City rival Pittsburgh has had at least four players arrested and another thrown off the team for violating its drug and alcohol policy since 2000. But the problems have had a negligible effect on the perennial Top 25 program or the reputation of Jamie Dixon, an assistant before becoming the head coach in 2003."

- "Martin, a football and track standout for the Hornets, actually attended Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa. for two years before he transferred to Tiger Country.
"It was a learning experience, and a confidence builder playing on that level," Martin said. "I had my fun, but I didn't feel like it was a great football atmosphere.
"Football has always been my first love since I was six years old, and I came up to Clemson on an unofficial visit," Martin added. "I loved the game-day atmosphere ... running down the hill."

- Have college football polls lost their purpose?
The idea of a national poll, Alan Gould said when he introduced it for AP in 1936, was "to develop interest and controversy between football Saturdays. ... It was meant to settle nothing regarding who was No. 1 or who would do what to whom, if only they would schedule each other. It was no more foolproof than the theorem offered in 1936 by a Slippery Rock follower who declared that neither Pitt nor Minnesota was No. 1, but rather Slippery Rock itself, because: Slippery Rock had beaten Westminster, which had beaten West Virginia Wesleyan, which had beaten Duquesne, which had defeated Pitt, which had beaten Notre Dame, which had beaten Northwestern, which had beaten Minnesota."

- Also part of that game were the only two African-Americans playing in the NFL at the time. From the U.S. Army to Major League Baseball, America was racially divided. Yet the year the Pittsburgh Crawfords became a charter member of the Negro National League and 14 years before Jackie Robinson broke through baseball's racial barrier, Pittsburgh's Ray Kemp and Chicago's Joe Lillard met on the same football field. A 1926 graduate of Cecil High School, Mr. Kemp worked as a coal miner for a year before playing football at Duquesne University. While most NFL players were paid $100 a game, Mr. Kemp got $40. Still, a miner at the time would have had to load 16 tons a day for 14 days to earn that paycheck."
