You may be right, but I may be as well. Duke has not done a great job developing bigs the past decade.

Zoubek is the most unathletic player in the history of the program. It's not developing him that is the problem, it's the fact that they thought he was going to be good in the first place. Sheldon Williams? Elton Brand? Carlos Boozer? Really?

Well, with dUKe's big man coach stands all of 5'5" that'll happen.

The loss last night is not a result of Zoubek. His development or lack of is not a result of coaching he can't move or get off the floor. The guy can barely dunk. We lost and deserved to lose because Wisconsin played a hell of a game. It was going to take a near perfect game for them to win and that is what they did. They shot 45% from the field and only committed 4 TO's the Badgers deserve all the credit.

I am surprised be the total rebounds by dook. It seemed that they were being dominated in the paint, but the final numbers say otherwise.

It will be interesting to to see what they do against UNC's big men.

Also, if it weren't for singler, Wisc would have blown out the dookies. That kid can play!

main probelm is zoubek, he doesn't deserve any minutes and if k would stop playing him, mason and miles will reach their potential sooner.

college basketball and their seniors though, really makes it easy to turn a game off when you see a guy like zoubek getting minutes on a team like duke

Let's not get ridiculous, it's still the beginning of the season and your boy Mason has been hurt. Zoubek does deserve less minutes but you can't put that on coach K for last night if you're saying Mason should have been taking those minutes. A healthy Zoubek is better than risking reinjuring an already hurt unproven freshman Mason. I can't stand coach K but that's not something that should be put on him for last nights loss.

When did Brand play there again? Boozer was coached up so well that he didn't get drafted. Sheldon was never more than a shotblocker and screener in dook's system. And do you need to get personal with the attacks? Sheesh!

Wow there you go again! Boozer was drafted by the Cavs at number 34 and he fell that far because he was injured the championship season. That year he averaged 18 ppg and 9 rebounds. Sheldon was never more than a shotblocker and screener? Are you kidding me? His senior year he averaged 19 ppg, 11 reb, and 4 blocks. Oh and he was taken 5th overall in that draft. Once again Htar good call.

You know what the most tragic aspect of Zoubek's career is? That he went to dook. I honestly believe if he were at UNC he would be a lot better.

or atleast YOU would think so. HE SUCKS, hes tall for nothing.

    • Between Hurd and Dobbs Tennessee had the two most overrated recruits in college football. Kamara was so much better than Hurd
    • He's got the height at 6'4". But I'm looking at arm length and wingspan and looking at the other DEs we've have targeted recently (Hardy, Alexander, Horton, Ealy, Miley, Edwards, Delaire). Delaire is the only one under 34" arms and he seems more like a pass rush specialist. 
    • I see what your saying and I hope that's not the case. I personally don't see KB as a player that's going to lead the league in catches or yards. I see him not as the stereotypical receiver but as a player that can be known as the one who makes the really tough, clutch catches. The dangerous red zone target that a defense has to key on but will still be deficult to stop. The guy that makes the hard fought 1st down catch on 3rd and long when we really need it late in the game. Dependable.  I believe he has the potential to be that guy. I hope at least.
