Wallace Wade had not changed a lot from the early 1970s until all of their recent upgrades last year.
that's my point. i was trying to say that duke was probably more willing to rent wade stadium before all of the recent new renovations, including back in the 70's. and by the way, i do go way back, just not as far back as the early 70's. i was still in middle school in the early 70's...
NCCU has always had a good relationship with Duke. But they probably don't want their field messed up by us. I am sure they would not allow us to paint the field Maroon and Gray or put the Eagle logo at midfield. NC State never allowed that all of the years we played at Carter Finley Stadium.
The NCCU AD said that she would NOT
even consider moving our game to a Thursday night for TV. That would be totally crazy.
