Courtesy your friendly moderators at, we’d like to welcome you to Sound and the Fury, which will aim to provide an analytical supplement to the message boards that have become the sports home for 25,000-plus fans of Duke University’s athletic teams.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski

Like Faulkner’s classic novel, Sound and the Fury will be filled with the views, takes and (hopefully) the insights of various individuals–though the affiliation with Faulkner’s book will end there.

So why start a blog?

The message boards provide a wonderful community-based forum in which fans can interact with “insiders.” Sometimes the most sought after analysis and information in message boards is difficult to find. This blog will hopefully ameliorate the ability of locating the information Duke fans want to find, and will further provide a vehicle for which that information can be delivered in a more thorough manner.

In-game analysis and immediate post-game analysis, and more efficient responses to the news and notes of the day can be expected with this new extenstion of The Devil’s Den, as well.

This is all about better serving the TDD readership, and hopefully, this blog will be a valuable complement to the main website that will benefit our collective interest in Duke athletics.

We look forward to the conversation, and look forward to your feedback.
