ACC Insider: A successful season, any way you Cut it

A 4-8 record is usually enough to get a major college football coach fired, or at the very least, land him squarely on the hot seat. Just ask Tommy Bowden, who won at least twice that many in each of the last three seasons and still lost his job this year.
But at Duke, where wins have been as rare as Chicago Cubs pennants, 4-8 is cause for both praise aand a contract extension. That’s what David Cutcliffe got Sunday, when a athletic director Kevin White sounded as though the first-year coach had just won the national championship in extending his contract for two years, through the 2015 season.
