Um, how you feeling there, Duke?

After watching Duke Houdini their way out of what would have been a rather embarassing defeat at the hands of 15 seed Belmont, one has to wonder:  Is Duke starting to slip, or have they already fallen?

The Duke of old?The Duke of, erm, new?

Seriously, what’s going on here?  Sure, they won, they advanced, and I guess that’s all that really matters, but it’s an understatement to say that Duke isn’t exactly striking fear into their Tournament opponents like they used to.  71-70?  Over Belmont?  And they had to do it like this?

    The old Duke teams had a solid PG which it has been lacking for a while now. You cannot win if your guards cannot handle the a press, create off the dribble and you rely on that crack called the trifecta.

    Duke is just not that good this year. It’s hard to accept but they’re running off legacy. We’ll have to wait a bit for a legitimately good Duke team I think.

    Duke lives and dies by the 3. As of now, they’re DEAD. How about recruiting a big guy Coach K? Have a plan B.

    Duke sucks cock, but let’s not forget that this loss exposing the weakness of the Atlantic Coast Conference (hereinafter, “ACC”). Indeed, the ACC is nothing but a bunch of bitches and we shall see further proof of this sad fact as the Tar Heels get their asses pummeled by the likes of Volunteers and/or Jayhawks. God save the Queen!

    All talk of buggery aside, I think it’s official:  Duke’s program as a whole has fallen off significantly.

    Now past the Sweet 16 just once in 7 years.  And counting…

    ????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m sorry “Wise ‘Man’” but the ACC is the best basketball conference in the country. Has been and will be for some time. We’ll see how it plays out and which one of us will be eating crow for breakfast, lunch and dinner…

    It’s obvious A Wise Man is smoking that 8th Wonder stuff. The only team that has been punishing the competition is UNC. Same old. No respect until they win it all. It’s good for them. It keeps them focused.
