The Lane Report
This week's Wade Report is renamed after Virginia Tech's stadium, as the Hokies essentially played a home game in Durham. The crowd was orange and purple from the start, and as Duke fans soon fled for the exits, things only got worse.
This is a game where there were no positives. After scoring to cut the lead to 13-7, Duke fell apart, simply outmatched by a much better football team. They got a pick off of the 3rd string QB, but that's the only positive over a two hour stretch in the middle of the game. It was homecoming weekend, alums were outnumbered and disappointed, and it was the type of game where it took a lot of will power to not leave early.
This is not me backing off. This is just a report of the game. I'll be back Nov. 3 when we beat Clemson.
