Fittingly, when Coach Krzyzewski and his Duke basketball staff took a visit to the Cowboys headquarters at the Star on Friday, there was Garrett, Prescott and Coach K taking a picture together.
The pictures were posted on Twitter by Duke basketball.
Running back Ezekiel Elliott was also pictured with a couple of Duke assistants.
Also of note are the shirts. Garrett and Prescott were wearing with the word "RESPECT" emblazoned across the chest.
That is Garrett's new theme for the season, according to a source, following "Fight" and "Finish' of past seasons.
After going 9-7 last year, the Cowboys are heading into 2018 looking for "RESPECT" and trying to regain "RESPECT."
