Gotta hand it to the Dookies. They looked very good tonight and I think they should be able to take the ACC this year.

Was gonna bet on them to cover but I forgot, anybody know what the spread was?

Good win by the dookies...They still have problems with their interior though...That's two games against quality teams and their bigs haven't been impressive. However, dook has a savy veteran team and that will work well for them until they get tuckered out later this season.

I actually thought the bigs played well. Between Plumlee, Zoubek, and Thomas they had 27 rebs and 16 points on 4 of 12 shooting. Yeah they didn't score a lot but they dominated on the boards and that is why Duke won. 15 of the 27 rebs were offensive they actually saved the game for us because we shot 29% from the field.

The point is that you guys are a perimeter oriented team that does not utilize the bigs and the minutes are being gobbled up by three guys...This is the same team as last year minus EW and Henderson, but with Dawkins and MP (who is injured) and Kelly who doesn't play. I stand by my prediction of this team fizzling out because of a very short rotation.

We will have a pretty good 8 man rotation once MP2 gets back which is going to be this week. Kelly is a situational guy right now so depending on the team we are playing is going to determine how many minutes he gets. He could not guard anybody from Uconn that is why he only got a few minutes. I am more excited about this team compared to last years but like I have been saying we still are a work in progress there is no doubt about that. Still a big win versus Uconn though.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
