Monday, March 24th, 2014

It is joy. It is pain. And we cannot get enough.

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 ...

Most of the nation can't stand Duke. There's nothing about the Blue Devils' basketball program gives the average college basketball fan a reason to smile. They are the hated ones. They are college basketball's Evil Empire. As we met Duke fans in Houston this weekend in Houston at the 2010 NCAA ...

Houston, We Have Landed
