UNC vs Duke (Wednesday Night)

I agree with Luc about Paulus. Why the hell was he on Lawson 1 on 1? Paulus is no match for him. Not being a homer but it's just the truth. Lawson will blow by every time and score.

Same story for the past 4 years pretty much....Not using our bench and it catches up with us in the second half. No penetration in the second half, because they were tired. Therefor, settle for contested 3s. Would have liked to have seen Miles and Email get in there for just 5 mins a piece to keep us somewhat fresh. Drew was in there for 5 mins in the first half and granted he looked like he wanted no part of this game, it helped in the long run, as Ty was fresh the second half.

Also, dont understand why Duke went away from bringing a second defender to help with a soft double on Ty as he brought the ball up the court. They did in the first half and he only took 2 shots. Second half, lets have paulus check him with no help??? Thats frustrating.

Congrats on the win for the Heels, a nice streak going right now. This rivalry goes in streaks, lets no forget it wasnt long ago that Duke took 15 of 17 from UNC. This is impressive, but I dont see it going to 15 of 17.

Why couldn't it go 15 for 17? Before that run by Dook, UNC was like 14 of 16 against Dook...That 15 of 17 came during the Guthridge/Doherty rebuild, BTW.

For starters, for Carolina to go 15 of 17, that means they would have to win the next 9 times in a row, very unlikely.

Carolina was NOT 14 of 16 before that Duke run, they were 10 of 12.

The fact that Duke's run of 15 of 17 doesn't matter who the coach was, Duke didnt force Carolina to hire Guthridge or Doherty and why do Carolina fans hate on Doherty so much, without him you wouldn't have won in 2005. His players.

Yeah, Dook pretty much needed that 15 of 17 to get back in the race...And whatta ya know...The Heels still lead the all time series by 30 games.

Actually I do believe Doherty got a bad wrap, and much of his problem was dealing with the pressure of being in a big-time gig - he wasn't ready. He was a pretty decent rectruiter, though. THe 8-20 season had more to do with Guthridges horrific recruiting.

But, as Monster alluded to...Let's see how high your spirits are when K steps down...And, winning 9 straight more games against dook, as tough as it will be, is not impossible. UNC is loaded for years to come.

If Carolina and Duke dont match up in the ACC tournament, you are basically saying that Duke will not beat Carolina again until 2014. That is dumb. Yeah Carolina is loaded, but its not like Duke doesnt have good classes lined up as well. You might be the only Carolina fan I have ever talked to who would say something like that. 2014 ha ha ha.

It won't get that lopsided, but I don't see splits every year coming for Dook, either. They are behind the Heels with regard to talent. UNC may be the only school in the country not afraid to play in that rock pile knows and Cameron.

    • With rivera thinking defense would win mentality..they thought Cam would be enough him and Smitty and double trouble...didn't work that way..this is a passing league and you have to adjust..front 7 is nice but if the team is getting ball out quick it negates it.Our offense in the SB was slow and line not good on the right side..After loosing Smity we had no true threat...Benjamin is good but is slow. Ginn and Brown weak and small..they are no smity ..If Steve were here we would have had a 2015 SB. Imagine Smitty in Browns place during SB...the organization took a turn for worst on offense should have gotten a  replacement benji was not it or was not enough.
    • So you answer a question with a question? Have no opinion?  Scared to guess?
    • correct. herbert spencer's concept (falsely attributed to darwin) was used heavily throughout the late 19th century to add a scientific justification for things like child labor and opposing evils such as regulations. some people were meant to be poor! it is a sure sign someone has no empathy and shouldn't be a viable voice in putting together a society that works for everyone because it is inherently anti-social.
