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.

    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
    • Saw it the other night and found it surprisingly decent. The acting was pretty damn good for a power rangers movie. Obvious plot holes are obvious and the plot advances before it's ready at times but it's not a bad movie. I thought the suits were cool but the zords looked terrible and the megazord was hideous. Would have been better off copying the original one tit for tat.
