Sure would love to hear from these fellas.

For the few, the proud and the brave among you who have actually attended every Duke home football game (and have been sober enough to see), you’ve probably noted the constant presence of a group even fewer, prouder and braver than yourselves.

They call themselves Roof’s Rough Riders, and they hang their banner right behind the Blue Devil bench each and every football Saturday in support of their beloved coach-despite how rough the ride has been.

Last Saturday-in light of Duke entering a game against Florida State without having scored a single point at home-I decided it was finally time to discover who the Rough Riders were and, why, in K’s name, they felt so compelled to publicly display their affection for head coach Ted Roof.
