Back in May, Duke planned to move its 2010 home game against Alabama down to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta for “more money and recruiting exposure,” said former athletic director Joe Alleva. A lot has changed since then—and, according to The Birmingham News, so has that decision.
Alleva has been officially replaced by Kevin White, but, more importantly, David Cutcliffe’s team is actually winning and doesn’t necessarily need the recruiting exposure of a game in Atlanta. Plus, by 2010, Wallace Wade Stadium might, you know, be intimidating for an opponent.
