Defense continues to let down Duke

Duke's demise this season should have been predicted, simply because the Blue Devils don't have the talent and toughness on defense they need to compete in the ACC. The offense can't make up for the problems on defense, with a poor running game and inexperienced quarterback.

Virginia Tech simply manhandled Duke Saturday, 44-7. The game was over by halftime and the Devils plummeted to 1-6. Duke returned six starters on defense for this season, but they lost the bulk of their defensive front from a year ago and there's little on this team that strikes fear into an offensive coordinator. Duke has a long way to go in ACC play ... as this season is reminding the remaining Blue Devil fans.
