Victory Formation-  The Chick-Fil-A Bowl is set with Johnny Football and his Aggies preparing to take on this year’s best story, the Duke Blue Devils. As the bowl committee was finalizing its matchup on Sunday, news leaked that the preliminary decision was that Miami would take on nearby Georgia. That would seem to be a better ticket draw than Texas A&M and Duke, but the Chick-Fil-A Bowl sells out every year, regardless of matchup. Now, Duke alumni have ponied up and showed us exactly why ACC commissioner John Swofford lobbied on behalf of the Blue Devils.

According to The Chronicle, Duke alumni have donated money so that students who wish to make the bowl trip can get into the game for free.

 
I hate just about everything that Duke stands for, but this is actually a pretty cool story.  Especially for a school that has only been competitive in football for about 4 months.  So good for the alumni for stepping up to the plate and letting the team know that they’re supporting them.  Even the richest, preppiest, douchiest Duke lax brah is sure to appreciate the $90 that they can keep in their wallet to spend at the bar instead of on a ticket.  And the icing on the cake is that you get to watch the legend that is Johnny Football play in what is sure to be his last college football game ever.  Good looks all around for the Blue Devil fans.  I said it before, I hold a ton of disdain towards Duke, but if you are hating on this here then you’re just jealous, and jealousy is kind of for bitches.
