The win was never vacated and the Duke fans are still sore about it. By now, Duke fans should have been able to go through the stages of grief concerning the wild finish in the ACC football game against Miami in 2015.
It appears they haven’t.
In anticipation of Duke-Miami basketball game tonight at 8:15, some Duke fans expressed their continued frustration over the result.
The final play of the game, which handed the Hurricanes the victory, was eventually ruled illegal. But not before a review determined the play was legal in every way and that the game was over. Duke would be knocked out of the AP top 25 following the result becoming official and fall to 6-3 on the season.
Tonight, Grayson Allen and the Duke Blue Devils will try to exact a little revenge, if you want to call it that. The Blue Devils, who have been reeling as of late without coach Krzyzewski on the sideline, will look to right the ship. Losers of their last two games, the Blue Devils face an equally desperate Miami team who have fallen to 12-5 after a hot start.
In case you didn’t see it, here’s the madness that unfolded that night:
The soreness is understandable.
