WRAL says that Duke will look to air it out against the Wolfpack on what may be a raining day in Raleigh this weekend.
Who could blame them after the way our defense has been playing? Maybe we should really be asking — Will Mike Archer’s defense find a way to hold an opponent under 30 points?
Thad Lewis certainly can’t complain about the opportunity.
He’s a senior with 39 starts at quarterback for Duke and is playing for a coach who has built a reputation around throwing the football. And when he takes the field Saturday against North Carolina State, he’ll face a defense that allowed a bevy of yards through the air last week and will likely have overhauled its secondary.
It seems to give the Blue Devils – the top passing offense in the Atlantic Coast Conference – an edge. They just have to take advantage.
Ultimately, they key to Duke’s quest of stopping NC State’s eleven game winning streak in this series probably lies with NC State‘s execution – or lack thereof. As this article points out, You Can’t Spell “Mistake” without (NC) “ST”.
But Obieâ€™s bottom line is what bottomed out State in Winston-Salem last week: the Wolfies arenâ€™t a good enough team to make so many mistakes and consistently get away with it.
How many times they have to re-learn that lesson, if they ever fully learn it, will dictate whether this is the club many thought it could be.
Where do we begin?
