Romo, Cowboys make return visit to Duke, and this time's no jinx

BY foxsports • March 4, 2015

UPDATE: No jinx this time. 

Cowboys QB Tony Romo and coach Jason Garrett were in the house for Duke's home game against Wake Forest on Wednesday, and the No. 3 Blue Devils won their 10th straight, 94-51.

Romo even joined the Cameron Crazies in the student section.

A year ago, Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Tony Romo visited the Duke basketball team.

They went back to Cameron Indoor Stadium this week and brought running back DeMarco Murray and tight end Jason Witten along to watch the Blue Devils practice. 

"Just trying to come out and here learn from Coach K," Romo said in an interview with point guard Quinn Cook for Duke Blue Planet. "Anytime you can get some insight from someone who's that outstanding and that level of success. You guys get it every day, but for us to come in, it's been really helpful."

After the Blue Devils made a shocking first-round exit in last season's NCAA tournament, Romo got much of the blame on Twitter for jinxing them in the 78-71 loss to 14th-seeded Mercer.

Duke is a favorite to get a No. 1 seed this year, and fans are hoping Romo hasn't cursed them to become the first 1-seed to lose to a 16.
