Late arrivals at Duke

DURHAM — It would be totally hilarious if Duke football, now experiencing some success with a 2-1 overall record, also developed one of the trappings of that success, i.e. a late-arriving crowd. 

Most of the 25,082 fans who showed up for the Duke-Navy game at Wallace Wade Stadium, on Military Appreciation Day, didn’t get into their seats until after the first quarter had begun.

Duke had 32,571 in the stadium for a win over James Madison in its opener and 23,614 in last weekend’s home loss to Northwestern. Just so long as it’s a crowd, Duke coach David Cutcliffe probably won’t mind. Despite the heat, most were still around to show their appreciation after Duke's 41-31 victory.
