I have avoided the Duquesne Dukes for as long as I can. I wanted to write about the Texas Longhorns or Purdue Boilermakers, teams that would attract some eyeballs. But Duquesne? Seriously? And yet, every week I get the Sweat Barometer from Sal Maddux, the Dukes are at the top. They're beating the spread by more points than the Horns and the Connecticut Huskies and, well, the other Huskies out there in Seattle.
