Still hate Duke, do you? Here's my question to you, then, after watching one of the worst shooting performances ever by a Sweet 16 team against Villanova Thursday night: Why? Unless you're reading this from Chapel Hill, you're wasting your time.

I don't hate Duke at all.

But this argument stinks. A weak team? A great coaching job? Last night. Duke was a two point favorite for a reason. They had 10 McDonalds All Americans.

If any other coach had that recruitment class and got so little out of them you would be writing how bad the coach was and how the team underachieved.

And if there was ever two Duke players I didn't like it's that criminal Gerald Henderson who the media conveniently keeps forgetting he punched/elbowed a defenseless NC player (Hansboro) to the face.
And taht waste Ala Abdelnaby who after a lost accused a white player of calling him a racial slur, which he eventually admitted he lied about. Ummm that never gets mentioned either.
At any other school people would question the coach.

Duke players are a bunch of sore losers and dirty players and the teams are always overrated. Coach Kryzewsesukkikdlsdkj;llkjdkjf is an arrogant asshole that has NO respect for anybody. I like how he doesn't give credit to anybody that beats him he's like "We played horribly we should have won that game, I don't know what happened, I like young Indian women that are freshman at Duke without pubic hairs." I can't believe that nobody questions him on these statements!

So even when Duke loses they still make you want to write collums about them. I guess that says more about you than it does about them.

ACC Champions
Sweet 16
a 30 win season

Not bad for a bad year.

By the way...how did St. John's mens basketball do this year ?

Your inability to spell a very simple, commonly used word says quite a bit about you, none of it good.

As to Duke's season, their record is inflated by playing in the ACC, which we can now see was a weak conference this year, and their first two tournament wins had as much to do with their getting the No. 2 seed as anything else.

Brazil's President said something that is more relevant to the Duke Basketball team than to global bankers. Duke has not moved past Final 16 since they started recruiting too many suburban white boys..they need to go back to the 2001 team and get some good solid black players in the line up. That is what NC does. Until Duke favors white boys over the ghetto kids, it is not going to make past the Final 16. This is not a biased statement but this based on evidence since 2003.

Any evidence or links to what he allegedly said about Indian women, let alone their pubic hairs? Or is it just another heresay?

You have to admit that Duke was in a pretty tough bracket with Pitt and Villanova. They might have faired better against Oklahoma perhaps.
And give Villanova a little credit here - they defeated two traditional powerhouse programs in UCLA and Duke, and rather handily. Nova is relentless on defense and once they get their foot on the opponents throat, they don't let up. I believe they have the right stuff to win it all this year, and old man Rollie is along with the team for another ride.

You like SNL, too? Ouch! You media types over-hype Duke - check how many of their games were televised, then moan when they don't go as far as you would like in the tourney.

I'll ALWAYS hate dook. I haven't forgotten the beatings they put on us when I was a student. I'm all too happy to watch them suffer now. Bunch of rich punks. And no, unfortunately you're wrong Staple, dook hasn't sucked for 5 years. This is maybe year 2 or 3 of their breaking down. And they're still a contender. Just not deep enough. Couldn't have happened to a more deserving rich-kid-but-not-ivy-league school. Go Heels!

This is like spitballs against a battleship.
Duke will reload in recruiting and be back in the Final Four before St. Johns even returns to the Tournament.
By the way, did you see that Stephon Curry's brother, the leading freshman scorer in the nation this year at Liberty University is transfering to...wait for it...DUKE.

I agree that duke's coaching is overrated. But If Singler and Henderson stay duke will be loaded next year. Paulus and McClure graduate this year which will help immensely because both hurt duke when they are on the court. McClure is godawful. Why does he play ahead of Miles Plumlee? He should never see the floor. Plus duke is getting two 6'10" top tier recruits to bolster the middle. Add Seth Curry to the mix in 2 years along with Josh Hairston and Andre Dawkins still with Nolan Smith and Elliot Williams, Duke should have enough talent to overcome K's lack of in-game coaching ability
