Coach K. One of the best coaches of all time.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/preview2010/columns/story?columnist=forde_pat&id=5782981

Ode to K
When Duke survived Cinderella in Lucas Oil Stadium, the achievement moved Mike Krzyzewski (4) into a new realm of the great coaches -- not just in college basketball, but in all of sports.

Sure, Krzyzewski already had his place secure in the pantheon. But now, The Minutes will argue that he stands alone behind John Wooden (5) among the best in the history of his sport and is rivaled only by Phil Jackson among the greatest coaches in all major sports over the past 25 years.

Phil has won far more titles, but he also got to coach Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. (Granted, it isn't as if Krzyzewski has ever hurt for talent at Duke.) The only other coaches in major American sports who have won four championships since 1990 are Gregg Popovich, Joe Torre and Scotty Bowman.

None of them can match Krzyzewski's seven championship-round appearances in that time, or 11 semifinal appearances. And none of them spaced out his titles the way Krzyzewski has.

What winning this most recent title did was extend K's run of rings beyond any in college basketball history. He has won titles in 1991, '92, 2001 and now 2010 -- a span of 19 years. That's dog years in college basketball.

Compare it with Wooden's compressed domination between 1964 and 1975. The other coaches who have won more than two titles also did it in a relatively narrow window of time: Adolph Rupp (6) won four from 1948 to '58; Bob Knight (7) three from 1976 to '87.

From Christian Laettner (8) in 1991 to Kyle Singler (9) in 2010, that's a quantum leap across eras during some of the most tumultuous changes the game has ever seen. Players have become less permanent, recruiting has become more complex and fan patience has dwindled. Yet none of that has been able to derail the Duke express.

In some ways the Blue Devils' program is like the famous Gothic building where they play -- untouched by time and unmarred by so-called progress. At Duke, they still trade in that quaint commodity known as seniors -- and they even tend to graduate. The game experience at Cameron Indoor Stadium remains bereft of modern arena techno-gimmicks.

And yet in other ways Duke is as modern as any program in the country. The practice facility has all the stuff recruits (and head coaches) covet. The Blue Devils' style of play allows players as much freedom and creativity as they can handle. And Krzyzewski's gold-medal work with NBA stars internationally has given the 63-year-old all the street cred he needs to continue recruiting at the highest level.

That means you can expect Krzyzewski to still be a force in the game for as long as he feels like doing it. And that absolutely includes this season, since he has the team to beat once again.

Can't wait!! Duke season tips off on Sunday!! Too bad it's during the Broncos game :( I'll just have to DVR it!

Duke had probably the easiest road to the Finals. Come talk when you make an Elite 8, 2 Finals Fours within a 5 year span, and a NCAA Championship as well.

Nowhere close as tough like we had it in 08-09.

The UNC 08-09 team would destroy Duke from last year.

I'm not upset at all, it will be the last time they win it in a while.

08-09 team has nothing to do with the Duke team of 09-10. Point was we won it all when you guys couldn't even make it. You guys are able to get pretty much any player you want, you should never miss it.

We'll see. I'm very confident in this years Duke team. We have some great recruits. Only ? is whether our big men will be effective enough.

LOL, true, just saying the 09 team would murder Duke from last year.

That's my main concern with Duke. Last year they had Zoubek, Thomas, and the Plumlees as their bigs. This year they have the Plumlees, and Hairston.

How do you start a thread on college basketball, and mention all the big conferences by name...but leave out by far and away every season's best conference? The Big East IS college basketball.

But that's not important here, we've got a GREAT season of college basketball underway right now.

Watch out for the A10 too, as the NCAA's fifth best conference, they could get up to five teams in the tourney this year.

Nah, they are 8th. IMO

They probably are behind the SEC, but as far as the other two, I definitely disagree. They aren't just top-heavy. Aside from Temple (a big contender this year), Xavier (always a contender), Dayton and Richmond (both also made the tourney last year), UMass (5-0), La Salle (4-2 with losses in tight games with Baylor and Missouri, both ranked) and Rhode Island (4-2, with one of those losses being a close game against Pitt) are all also pretty impressive this year.

Compared to the MWC (with SDST, BYU and UNLV being the only real tourney contenders, and a few other good teams in Utah, Air Force and NM), and the Pac 10 with a handful of good teams...I think the A10 has a slight edge.

How can you even consider the atlantic 14 ahead of the pac ten? do you know how BAD the bottom of that conference is? Sure Temple will be stacked, Richmond has Kevin Anderson, Rhode Island, Dayton MAYBE St. Louis with the great second half they had and Xaiver if they were healthy would vie for bids, but guys.... The bottom is garbage.

Big Ten is STACKED! Big East has very few quality teams capable of sweet 16 runs. Have you watched any ball yet? Minnesota just won a pre season tournament! Ohio St looks as tough and anyone, and although MSU suffered a setback in Maui, they always start off slow and they beat a very quality Washington team with about as good of guard play as they will face this season.

Call the conferences by their actual names, it makes more sense ;)

Either way, I can tell you the bottom of that conference is not much worse than the bottom of the Pac 10, and certainly much better than the MWC.

Pac-10's bottom is probably a little better, but aside from Fordham (who are miserable), there's no team that isn't at least a little competitive. Charlotte is off to a slow start, but St Joe's has looked alright, La Salle and Rhode Island have both been very impressive against tough competition so far, GW has been decent, UMass is 5-0 with a young, up-and-coming team, Dayton is looking great, Temple is strong, Xavier's had the best recruiting classes outside the BCS conferences and is looking like a tourney threat again...

Wyoming and TCU are both pretty bad...TCU's looked awful against the A10 head-to-head this year.

I guess wait and see...I think you'll be surprised.

MWC might be a little top heavy, but they have 4 teams that will be in the top 25 for pretty much the whole season. The A10 has 1 in Temple, maybe another if Xavier can play better but they have no chance at having 4 teams in the top 25 at any point, let alone the majority of the season.

I can see San Diego State in the top 25 for the whole season, and UNLV has looked great, but other than that there top is pretty similar to the A10s. BYU has dominated terrible teams so far, and played close against the one somewhat decent team they've played. Air Force also hasn't played anyone decent, and even lost to Colorado College.

Temple actually had a setback against a good Cal team yesterday, but I'd say Temple and San Diego State are about even, UNLV is probably a little ahead of Xavier, BYU and Dayton are about equal. Then it favors the A10 from there on out...Richmond is better than Air Force, UMass, Rhode Island, La Salle are better than Cstate, Utah, New Mexico and TCU...

I don't know, it's close...but I think the A10 has a greater chance of having 4 teams in the top 25 at one point than the MWC (neither conference will have four though).

InElwayWeTrust
11-27-2010, 09:50 PM
Not sure why you're putting Air Force above New Mexico? Maybe you're not but that's what I get from your posts. New Mexico was one of if not the best team in the conference last year and they will be good again this year. I agree that it is close though. I will also admit that I am probably being a slight homer due to me attending UNLV :D.

BTW, UNLV is in the Championship Game of the 76 Classic Tourney tomorrow night vs Virginia Tech. GO REBELS!!!!!!

We have looked great so far, we have beaten 2 good teams in Wisconsin and Murray State, and the other 3 teams we played we absolutely stomped the tar out of em'. Our depth in the backcourt is UNREAL. We need it too because of our 40 minute press defense, but it really is crazy how deep we are at the guards. It is so deep that our 1st team All MWC SG Tre'von Willis isn't even starting right now. We have Oscar Belfield (teams best passer) starting at point, with Anthony Marshall (a friend of mine, we went to highschool together) at the 2. Then we have Trevon Willis, Derrick Jasper, Anthony Hawkins, all playing significant time off the bench. And our new international student Karam Mashour is trying to find minutes. He will be a star in the future but is having a hard time getting minutes right now. It is good to know that we will almost ALWAYS have fresher legs than the opponents, hopefully we can take advantage of it. Oh yeah and once again....

Yeah, UNLV has looked VERY good so far. I sensed there might have been some bias, and there's probably some on my end too...they're pretty close either way.

With the emergence of Andre Dawkins and the stud rookie in Kyrie, I think this squad is better than last years. Obviously Scheyer is missed greatly, but man have these two filled in nicely.

Repeat? I think it is a very legit possibility...


With the emergence of Andre Dawkins and the stud rookie in Kyrie, I think this squad is better than last years. Obviously Scheyer is missed greatly, but man have these two filled in nicely.

9-0.

Coach K #3 on the All Time Wins list now.....3 more to go until he is #2!!

GO DUKE!

Kyrie is certainly a big blow, could hurt depending how long he's out for. He was playing at an extremly high level before his injury.

As of today, sounds like there is the possibility it could end his season. That would hurt BADLY....but hopefully if thats the case Dawkins steps up like last night and Curry begins to be a bigger impact. I have faith Nolan can lead the offense by himself, if that is the case.

Yeah, i saw that today on yahoo when i was checking my fantasy team. Don't wish for injuries, so i hope he comes back except when Duke plays UNC.

And i'm not sure, Dawkins would be a big loss for the bench if he has to start the rest of the season.

I was impressed with OSU, their length makes passing throw traffic difficult, but they are beatable by a team that runs. They were really winded when we ran up and down the floor in the first half. Unfortunately Iowa is so young we hit a wall like every game and they went on a 16-0 run. Iowa only lost by 5, and I was happy with the end result. Iowa is getting better, and I would do just about anything for them to get back to the NCAA tournament next year.

18-1 for the Blue Devils.

Great win today. Ryan Kelley had a career game, perfect from the field 6-6, 4-4 from 3 point land and 4-4 in free throws with a total of 20 points and 6 rebounds. Love how ever since Kyrie went out, a new person will step up each week from the bench.

Dropping to #5 at 18-1 in my opinion is complete bull, but maybe after these last two wins we will be back at #2 or #3.

GO DUKE!!! Back2Back!

Big game for my Rams today too against BYU at home. Think it will be the first time we have sold out in 8 years. 13-5 Rams basketball team is really good, at least we have one sport we can look forward too some what.

LOL, don't get used to it.

FINALLY Roy put Marshall in the starting lineup. He's the best pure PG we've had under Roy. Amazing court vision and passing ability, teammates praise him a lot. Had 9 points, 9 assists, 3 steals in the win at VT and a solid game against Clemson.

The tides will turn once Smith and Singler leave, and hopefully Irving follows, he's too good to be on Duke.

Doubt it.

Kyrie will at least play his sophmore year due to his injury, and most Duke players don't leave until they graduate, some leave their junior season. I hope he at least stays until he is a junior, but he is a rare talent.

Then we have Dawkins and Curry both good players who are on the bench now because of our depth. Then we will have the 3 Plumlee brothers and Ryan Kelley.

I still see us being a top 5 - top 10 team for at least another 4-5 years, probably longer.

I don't know, once he comes back, and shows he's back, i could see him go pro. He's right now a Top 5 pick. We'll see though, i say he goes pro.

In a jarring February development, North Carolina point guard Larry Drew II has left the Tar Heels team and will transfer, according to a source close to the situation.

The source also said North Carolina's coaches were aware of Drew's decision.

Drew essentially has shared the point guard position this season with freshman Kendall Marshall; he lost the starting role to Marshall in mid-January.

As a result, Drew's playing time, scoring and assists have dropped from last season -- minutes down from 28.8 to 22.8 per game; scoring from 8.5 points to 4.4; and assists from 5.9 to 3.9.

However, he's had some of his better floor games in the Tar Heels' past three games, all victories, racking up 19 assists and only two turnovers while playing fewer minutes than Marshall.

Drew, the son of Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew, was a lightning rod for fan criticism last year, when the Tar Heels failed to earn an NCAA tournament berth.

If he transfers to another Division I school, Drew will have to sit out a year, and he would have one season of eligibility remaining.

North Carolina is 16-5 overall, and 6-1 in the ACC, in second place behind Duke. It is on the verge of re-entering the ESPN/USA Today coaches' top 25 after being ranked ninth in the preseason. The Tar Heels are tied for 23rd in The Associated Press media poll.

No, not a BIG loss, but ever since Kendall has taken over the team has played better.

I guess Dexter will play some PG.

Don't have much depth behind Kendall. But he wasn't that great at all, hopefully more minutes for Kendall.

Wish Larry the best.

Congrats on the win, UNC was ice cold in the 2nd half. Ours bigs dominated the Duke bigs who are so overrated. Marshall has impressive court vision for a freshman, offensive game needs some work. I think if we had Drew, we may have won, he would of done a better job on Smith.

Refs were bad too, Duke's side as always. It was mostly the fact that they let Mason Plumlee barrel people over inside and Singler hold Barnes in the second half. Add in the flops early in the game called on Strickland.

We were ice cold first half, you guys second half.

I don't know, there were some questionable calls on both sides, Duke only shot like 10 free throws, until the end, so we really weren't getting followed besides on some charges.

I think we still will win in UNC, I think we just had an off game tonight.

The only person i think we lose is Henson. If Zeller and Barnes leave, we're in deep crap. Duke loses Smith and Singler, and possibly Kyrie.

Oh, i don't think you win at UNC. We had a horrific night from 3, and still came close to winning in Hansbrough Indoor. The crowd played a huge role, and we've had some good games at home. And Duke wouldn't miss in the 2nd half.

And Barnes/Singler took each other out of the game. Amazing defense from Barnes on Singler.

We're too inexperienced to be as good as Duke, and IF everyone comes back which i don't think happens, we're a top 3 team next year.

We'll see, and the game in Chapel Hill could determine the ACC depending how UNC/Duke the rest of the game. But with our inexperience, i think we'll lose a game we should win.

Yea, the way CSU finishes will have a big impact on it, but I think we will finish either ahead, or tied in the Conference standings. And as of right now we are 26th in RPI, and CSU is 47th...

Good teams we beat in Non Conference:
- #10 Wisconsin 20-6 (#25 when we played them)
- Murray State 21-7 (1st place in Ohio Valley)
- Virginia Tech 17-8
- Kansas State 18-9 (#11 when we played them)

Huge win for my Rebels last night in OT in New Mexico!!!! We have sole posession of 3rd place in the MWC now. As long as we close out the season without losing (shouldn't be to hard given our opponents) we should get a pretty good seed in the tourney.

Until they play UNLV, haha. We are gonna close out the season on a 5 game winning streak with a win vs Utah on Saturday. We are already a lock for the Tourney but I think we gotta win the MWC tourney to move up to a 6 seed. If we can do that, I can see us getting to the second weekend depending on the match-ups.

The way I see the MWC tourney going is something like-

1st RND
1 SDSU over 8 Wyoming (SDSU beat them twice by a total of 66 pts, no brainer)
2 BYU over 7 Utah (Again a no brainer, even without Davies)
3 UNLV over 6 Air Force (Rebels have handled them easily the first 2 times)
5 CSU over 4 New Mexico (New Mexico just isn't the same when it isn't in the P2it)

Semi-finals
5 CSU over 1 SDSU (Colo St has much more to play for, and will come out 110%)
3 UNLV over 2 BYU (Another upset as the 2 powerhouses go down. BYU will be playing in the Thomas & Mack without their 2nd best player, Rebs take it.)

MWC Championship
3 UNLV over 5 CSU

Of course I'm gonna pick my Rebels! :D

You guys beat us at the Mack one time to many this year, it won't happen again.

If that happens, then the MWC should get 4 teams without question. The east-coast bias committee might find a way to screw it up though...:rolleyes:

UNC owns Duke, always have.

Unless Kyrie comes back 100% healthy, Duke isn't sniffing another Final Four. Aside from Singler who looks worn out and Smith, no one on Duke is that good. Duke's bigs are horrendous and will get dominated, they will miss Zoubek and Lance Thomas badly come NCAA Tourny time.

Bitter no, we got 2 NCAA titles, 3 FF's and an E8 the past 5-6 years while Duke gets one NCAA title and a lot of early losses, not bitter at all.

And while they weren't great, they are certainly better then the crap you got now. Kelly just chucks 3's, the Plumlees have no offensive game unless they are 5 feet to the basket.

If Kyrie doesn't return, another S16 loss or 2nd round depending on the matchup.

ACC regular season >>>>>>>>>> ACC Tournament

16 games is a better judgement over 3 or 4 games in a row. Unless you think Duke was the best team in the ACC in 09?

UNC played FSU twice, Clemson twice, and VT once while Duke played all 3 one time.

For the record, if UNC comes out flat again, they will not come back against Duke.

Singler and Barnes will cancel each other out, and with the way Barnes is playing, i'd give him a slight advantage right now.

Smith is gonna get his.

It's going to come down to the role players, like McDonald, Strickland, Knox for UNC and Curry, Dawkins, Kelly, etc for Duke.

Say what you will. Regular season record doesn't mean jack as long as you get into the tournament.

The Seattle Supersonics had a great regular season when the Nuggets had a so so season. Yet the #8 Nuggets advanced farther then them in the playoffs and upset the #1 seed Sonics.

That's true, but the regular season means more then a tournament played for 3-4 days where if a #6-7 seed gets hot, they win, would they be the best in the ACC that year or no?

I'm talking about overall. ACC Regular season does mean more, 16 games over the same teams proves who's the better team, not a tournament where if you have one off game, you're done. I'm talking about the conference tournaments.

Well, if that one play changed the game and you guys couldn't recover, thats your (UNC's) problem, even thought it wasn't as big of a foul as you think.

Point is there have been questionable calls on both ends. Singler should've had one charge I remember. Then you guys should've been called basket interference on one play.

Foul count favored you guys, so I don't see how you can even mention the refs to the reason you guys lost.

We took high percentage shots and made them, and converted the steals we had.

Duke is 2-1 against UNC.
Duke finished 32-4 UNC finished 28-7.

I don't see how you can't give Duke the nod over UNC this year.

We will see in the tournament who advances farther.

Good game, Duke showed up when it matters most, tournament play, so hopefully it continues.

Even though Barnes didn't have a game changing game like the past few days, he is still a hell of a player and hit some key shots. All I know is I hope he goes pro, don't wanna see him in the future.

Refs sucked on both ends, wasn't pretty.

Duke brought it from the get-go, UNC was flat again, Duke wanted it more then UNC did.

I think UNC is better talent wise, but Duke has more experience and in games like this, experience > talent.

I think this game showed Barnes needs another year, he would struggle against the likes of a LeBron James, Melo, Granger, Deng, etc, all the physical players. Singler played him well.

I think he comes back next year to make a run at an NCAA title and leaves after his sophomore year, then comes back to get his degree in the summers. Or could stay for 3 years and get his jersey hanged in the rafters. And yes, if he comes back, Duke is in trouble next year, they have no one who can guard him.

Anywho, good game and best of luck in the tourny, K will have them ready, i'm sure.

I think he comes back next year to make a run at an NCAA title and leaves after his sophomore year, then comes back to get his degree in the summers. Or could stay for 3 years and get his jersey hanged in the rafters. And yes, if he comes back, Duke is in trouble next year, they have no one who can guard him.

Anywho, good game and best of luck in the tourny, K will have them ready, i'm sure.

UNC showed it's youth today, i think we're a year away if everyone comes back.

I can agree with that, talent and experience point.

You guys have a ton of talent, we have Singler, Smith, Curry and Dawkins who are really athletically gifted and talented. Then obviously Kyrie but he's been injured the entire year, so he doesn't count. You guys have a damn good talented roster. But yeah, we are definitely more experienced and have better leadership.

I hope Barnes leaves, projected #1, I think he will, but that is for selfish reasons why I want him gone. I really think players should be required to play 3 years in college (education is important even for athletes). But we'll see.

Good luck to you guys as well, I'd really love to play you guys for a 4th time, but doubtful.

That is VERY debatable...

Joe Lunardi's final Bracketology had us at a solid 6 seed.
http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bracketology

We are 25th in RPI, and we finished 24-8 in the 4th best Conference in the country. The numbers aren't even comparable to the other 8 seeds... Actually it is a lot closer in comparison to the 6 seeds. I'm not saying we were actually robbed, but the difference between playing 1 Kansas in the second to playing 3 Purdue is huge.

I'm still happy, and I guess there is always the "If you can't beat the best you weren't going to win anyways" argument which is true. I was just hoping we would finally get some respect and get out of that dreaded 8-9 game that we always seem to fall into. It would make our chances of making the second weekend a lot better. Oh well.

Obviousally i'd want Barnes back, but Zeller and Henson were more important because we would be slim in the post.

If Barnes comes back, i'll be jumping for joy. But we'd still have Reggie, PJ, Dex, and LMac at the 2-3.

(For the record, i think Barnes is coming back, he wants an NCAA title and we would have a stacked team with Barnes) But i'll support whatever decision he makes.

Good for him. Was hoping he would stay, but oh well.

He'll go #1 or #2 and be a force in the NBA.

Plus, it's only college basketball, they all leave at one point. Not that big of a deal.

Can't wait to see what team gets him. Hopefully I can root for him :P (I am hoping Pistons, but a long shot).

I figured he would leave, seemed like the typical one and done player.

I think he'll be great, would of liked him to stay because i hate players leaving after one year. I hate the one and done rule. He'll be a good one, hard to argue that, he's a special talent.

How so, Wisconsin mainly shot 3's all game while UNC relies on it's inside game, and attack the paint.

And it's kinda scewed since Wis had to foul at the end of the game.

As for Taylor, Strickland had a big part to that, he's one of the most underrated defenders in college basketball. Taylor is a baller though.

Two things are clear from tonight's game, Carolina can't win the tournament unless they start to defend the 3, they were horrible tonight and have been bad all season. Dook can't win the tournament being that dependent on the 3 ball. Taking 35-40 of them a game isn't a recipe to win it all, over 6 games eventually they'll go cold one game and it'll be over for them.

Rivers is a very good player though.

I'm fine living by the 3.


We lost all our players last year.


We really aren't a normal Duke team, however, we keep winning. 3 is our game this year solely, and it works majority of the time.

The thing that pisses me off is pretty much every Duke fan would tell you, UNC has the better team, but not for those last 3 minutes.

Not sure what to expect in the tournament, the loss of McDonald and Strickland are killer, we got no depth. And yeah, probably a 7-10 seed who makes 12 3's.

Duke beats teams they probably shouldn't (UNC had that game) and loses to teams they should beat (NCST today apparently and Miami :D).

Speaking of the Canes, Lunardi currently has us as one of the play-in 12 seeds. Hopefully since we had good showings against FSU and UNC we'll still be on the bubble. If we win out, including a win against the Noles, I think we'll be in good shape.

Broncoholic3233
02-16-2012, 09:12 PM
Yeah. Duke is a up/down team this year.


We are doing much better than I thought though, so I'm not mad. I mean it's annoying losing to bad teams, but we've had some great wins too. And it looks like we will hang on and win this one against NC State. Great comeback.

I'm really mad though at my own school, CSU is a freaking mess. So up/down. UGH.

Broncoholic3233
02-16-2012, 09:21 PM
Yup. We held on.


I had kind of just accepted the loss at halftime, but glad I kept watching.


Curry played lights out in that 2nd half. Rivers was clutch and hit a 3 to pull ahead. Railed from 20 down to win.


Granted it's a win we should've had easily, a 20 point comeback in the 2nd half is great news.

lol, up 20 with 10 or so to go, should be a win, of course they choked.

And i'm amazed how Dook gets 20+ FT's while jacking a bunch of 3's all game, the only player who can create his own shot or beat you off the dribble is Rivers.

Lunardi is well, not the sharpest tool in the shed.

He had MSU as a 1 over UNC and Dook when both beat MSU head to head, and have 1 less loss.
