Coach K: The Greatest Man In The Universe

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Less than a week after warning us about the dangers of lionizing coaches to the point where they were bigger than the institutions they represent, the media went ahead and lionzed a coach to the point where he is bigger than the institution he represents. Mike Krzyzewski became the winningest men's ...

Beware The Guards of Duke

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

The Cleveland Cavaliers made Duke guard Kyrie Irving the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft Thursday night, and we're all happy for him. But don't be surprised if this doesn't work out, Cavs fans, and it's not just because you're from Cleveland or we have no idea what Irving's ...

What Does Kyrie Irving’s Injury Mean for Duke?

Friday, December 10th, 2010

You didn't really think Duke was going to go undefeated or something this year, did you? Surely, you know better than that. But, naturally, as one of the most talented teams in the country with Nolan Smith, Kyle Singler and freshman sensation Kyrie Irving, mixed in with a very down ACC ...

Monday, March 30th, 2009

We probably should have seen this coming. It wasn't possible, after all, for another Curry to spend his college basketball career at a mid-major, now was it? News came in the last week or so that Stephen Curry's little brother, Seth, was going to transfer from Liberty in favor of a ...

McD’s Week 14 Picks: Rivalry Week Part 2

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

It's just plain wrong Boise State and Ball State can go undefeated, win their respective conferences, and not get into the BCS. What makes it ironic is it'll be another undefeated non-BCS team (Utah) that's taking their place. Once again, we've learned exactly what makes the BCS so shitty. Instead of ...

Awww Poor J.J.

Friday, November 14th, 2008

We've been hearing for well over a year now that J.J. Redick was unhappy with the Orlando Magic. Hey J.J., you think you're unhappy? Imagine how thrilled the Magic are to have you. I'm sure they love the fact that they spent the 11th pick in the 2006 NBA Draft ...
