So a team that looked a step slow and not too athletic put up 96 points? Your guys haven't put up that many points this year yet. We shot the same percentage from the 3 point line as the Heels did so you can't use that excuse.


I think UNC has a higher ceiling this year than duke...What you see from duke is about what it will be. Roy is running players in and out trying to establish his corp. Yeah, the Heels are going to play a lot of people, but they are not going to have a 12 man rotation. That's what it is right now.

And, hey, duke might score 96 a game, but they are going to play teams and give up that much, too.

96 points= because it was UNCG, and Coach K played Scheyer & Singler the whole game. I know they were missing 2 players . But you win by 34 and play your best 2 players 39 mins.?
He is a great coach but why does he insist on year after year running his best players into the ground. Come Feb. Singler want have any legs at all.. AGAIN

What has always impressed me is Duke beats the teams their suppose to. K always has them ready.

But to go back in forth this time of year about either team on how good or bad either will be . Makes you sound as homerish as Htar.
Long season hope both teams stay healthy

Are you serious? I bring facts to the table and Htar brings nothing. 96 points against UNCG I agree is not that impressive I was just making a point that a team I Htar's eyes looks a step slow somehow dropped 96 on a team. Once again he had to play Scheyer and Singler that much because both of their backups were out and we don't have a sixteen man rotation like the mighty Heels. I am assuming you are a UNC fan by your reaction to what I said. Most rational people can understand what I am saying and I don't consider most UNC fans rational.

I complimented your team on their preparation and execution.
I don't see how that was irrational. I questioned Coach K's over use of his star players.


I can easily see my teams weaknesses as well as strengths. And in no way do I think Roy walks on water.

You are no different than Htar.
But keeping posting all them facts. Homer:rolleyes:

Hey, I never make excuses for my Heel homerism. I'm quite proud of the best program in the nation.

But I see the weaknesses with this years Heel team...The difference is that this years team is playing with house money. They have a ton of talent but are inexperienced. Experience will come with playing. Duke is maxed out. Their leaders are who they are and they are limited.

I agree they are prepared, and as far as K's over use of players we are not as deep as your Heels and if you would have taken a moment to thought about what I wrote you would understand why Scheyer and Singler had to play so much. We had maybe our most pivotal player not playing. With Smith not playing we have to have players step up and play a little more. They won't average 37 minutes a game once Smith gets back. And if me putting facts out there and not just pulling sh!t out of my a$$ makes me a homer then so be it. I agree that I am biased like any fan but I can still look at a team and make a pretty good judgment on them. I will stand by what I said Duke will finish in the top 10 and UNC will finish in the 10-20 range.

Couple things Htar.

1. Happy to hear you watched a Duke game. Anyone who considers themselves a die-hard Duke or Carolina fan and member of the greatest rivalry in sports should always watch the rivals games. I watch every Carolina game of the year, that way I know what I am talking about when I talk sh*t. So that is a positive for you Htar.

2. Duke is pretty athletic. You can be white and be athletic, it happens sometimes. How high do you think Mason and Miles Plumlee can jump? Just curious.

3. Carolina may be young this year, but keep in mind Duke has two seniors on the team, that's it.

4. As for knowing who their leaders are at the beginning of the season, that would be considered a positive. And yes we know what the can do, Jon is the reigning ACC tournament MVP and Kyle Singler is a serious candidate for National Player of the Year. Not sure how that is seen as not impressive. If we want to talk not impressive, that would be Carolina's level of play this season so far.

5. Finally, if you want to question Duke being a top ten team, you, my friend, need to look in the mirror. How can you ask that question with a straight face, when Carolina is ranked 4th in the Nation. There is nothing about that team that is 4th best in the Nation. Be happy with a high early season ranking, it will not be there at the end. Kinda like your football team, over hyped early and shows its colors mid season then trys to turn it on when its too late. But you probably aren't even a Carolina football fan.

Thought Duke looked good, was really impressed with a couple of the freshmen out there...Dawkins, I think one was, and the other goofy-looking black-haired center/forward that nailed that long three.

Still think Zoubeck simply needs to GTFO, though.

Are you talking about the UNC fball team that pounded your dookies? Yeah, I know quite a bit about UNC football and have been a fan for years. How you like that defense? I'd question your loyalty to the gridiron devils but I know you're not a fan of that...I think there are 500 dook football fans in the world - odds are you aren't one of them.

As for hoops, the devils are maxed out. Not much upside there.

Maxed out and two key players haven't played a minute yet. Makes sense.

I mean, MP is a freshman and has a broken arm - doubt he'll be a factor at all this year and Nolen hasn't done squat to this point in his career. Am I wrong?
