! Hey, they didn't always suck! They had Sonny Jurgensen. For his career at Duke, Jurgensen was 77 of 156 for 1,119 yards and six touchdowns. He also managed to rush for 243 yards on 99 carries and intercept 10 passes as a defensive back. He also helped lead the Blue Devils to a 34-7 victory over Nebraska in the 1955 Orange Bowl.

In 1957, he was drafted in the fourth round by the Philadelphia Eagles. He was eventually traded to Washington and ended up in the Pro-Football Hall of
Fame with over 32,000 passing yards.

The coach back then -- Bill Murray -- enjoyed a 15-year tenure in Durham producing one Southern Conference and seven ACC championships, three major bowl bids and a record of 93-51-9.
