Andrew Luck and Stanford come to Duke’s Wallace Wade Stadium, to face the Blue Devils, on Saturday and all eyes will be on the 2011 Heisman hopeful and All-America quarterback, who decided to stay in school for his senior year and try and help bring the Cardinal, a National Championship……

from the www.charlotteobserver.com site and writer Caulton Tudor on Luck……

At 6 feet 4 and almost 240 pounds, Luck is what Duke coach David Cutcliffe describes as a “rock” and Wake coach Jim Grobe describes as “just plain special.”

If Cutcliffe is preparing special defensive schemes, he’s keeping it private.

In back-to-games last season, a 52-31 loss at Oregon and a 37-14 win at Notre Dame, Luck was picked off twice. In the Oregon game, he also had two touchdown passes and had 341 yards.

“There’s no way to stop him,” Oregon coach Chip Kelly said. “To beat ’em, you just have to be able to score a lot of points.”

But for all Luck did in 2010 – 3,338 yards passing, 32 touchdowns and only eight interceptions on 372 attempts – Cam Newton was better in leading Auburn to the Bowl Championship Series title.
