3. At the end of the day the old supply and demand rule comes into play. The Duck Shop is only going to offer so much due to demand. When the demand for Duke Football apparel increases, the supply (and in particular, the available options) will increase. While there's been a slight increase in demand over the past few years, it's been extremely slow at The Duck Shop and still pales in comparison to demand for Duke Basketball gear (hell, the demand for Duke Lacrosse gear is comparable to the demand for Duke Football gear).

"This does two things," Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe said. "One, we help clean up and beautify. We help our people on the grounds who are overwhelmed with the responsibilities in the many areas they have. But we also create awareness. People see this as they're walking across campus, going to class or any other type of business they have going on. They see guys out there in Duke football gear picking up litter."

4. As noted above, many of the team issued gear (specifically the DukeGang shirts and some other items) is not made available to the public. I've gone through every Nike Duke Football (and basketball, for that matter) item available for the past four years (and have already seen the items available for the 2017 season) and many of the things you see the football and basketball players wearing are never offered to the public. That's not a The Duck Shop issue (nor Duke stores), that's Nike's deal.
