WTF are you talking about lame!!! We won the whole thing last year. So your 1st point is stupid!!!!

2nd atleast we didn't follow up a national championship season with a trip too the NIT!!!

Let's see a down year for Duke 25 + wins and a sweet 16 trip.

A down year for the Tarholes NIT runner up's.

UNC lost Hansbrough, Lawson, Ellington, Green, & Frasor. That's the top 4 players on the team, including an all-time great. The '10 Heels were terrible, there's no denying that, but it wasn't the same team. Not even close. That's like saying the '99 Bulls failed because they didn't 4-peat after Jordan retired.

Duke returned it's top 2 players, SR All-American Singler & SR All-American Smith, & added a FR PG who will be the #1 pick in the NBA Draft this summer. They also added Curry, a better perimeter player than the '10 Duke team had.

So in summary:

UNC: Lost 4 starters & the 6th man. Struggled in '10 with an extremely young & inexperienced squad.

Duke: Returned 2 SR All-American's, added a FR PG who will be #1 in this years NBA Draft, & Curry-one of the best perimeter players in the conference.

Beat up on cupcakes in November, then a weak ACC field before losing to UNC in the season finale, for the ACC Championship. Coach K gets a moral victory by defeating UNC in the ACCT title game. Duke pummels a 16 seed in Rd 1, gets lucky & holds on to beat MU in Rd 2, & then get destroyed by a #5 seed in the Sweet 16.

Looks to me like the choke artists are the fools in Durrr-um.

They played possessed in that second half, but what about that choke job by dook? I mean, come on. That was some terrible play in the 2nd half. I don't think I've ever seen a dook team so flustered. They were the more experienced team too, which makes it even more inexplicable.

Arizona caused them to be flustered.. not so much dook choking.. of course I guess I am only nitpicking on definitions here.

Props to Arizona. They completely dismantled Duke. No excuses here, we were picked apart, out hustled, and beaten in every facet of the game.

I thought Duke's defense was pathetic and the Plumlees were pitiful on the boards. Not to mention, it looked like Irving and Smith were trying to do too much, rather than getting others (Curry, Dawkins, etc) involved.

So does this mean absolutely no for Miller to State?

Personally I would like to see him there. Tobacco road would once again be insane.

I missed the game. I watched a couple of minutes after halftime and assumed dook and the refs would win the game. However, I was delightfully woken up by a text from a friend with a picture of dook bench crying with score at the bottom.

Like someone said earlier, K should not have brought Irving back with big minutes...I think he screwed up their chemistry/rotation. Oh well, better luck next year! NOT!, I hope those fuggers lose every game

Yes, State has two national titles. But this is 2011, not 1983. To quote Rick Pitino, David Thompson "is not walking through that door..."

Seems to me that "crazy fanbase" cares more about football these days...

Lets not get ahead of ourselves..Zona although making the Elite 8. Xavier has done it in the 2000s most recently 2008? and were not calling them prestigious.

The same could be said for Arizona living in the 90s.. Im not saying Miller will go to State..but all this crap about Arizona being this huge basketball thing..is just as irrelevant as NC State. You win the title this year and ill eat my words.

Stop with the excuse loser!!!! You are UNC a "BLUE BLOOD" you don't rebuild or missed the NCAA tourney.

Their was no crying or NIT when you lost FELTON, MAY, Williams, MCCANTS, and Another Williams. You made the tourney that year.

You didn't bring in Jack in the Box all Americans did you??? You also had Thompson and Ginyard on that team who were player on the Championship team.

So please stop with your loser Mentality. WE lost Zona they beat us (not you) no excuse. I will take a rubbing from Zona fans they deserve it they kick our ass.

But you Tarhole's who team is 2,000 miles away in New Jersey can go too hell. You had nothing too do with this game how you can gloat about us losing too another team that had nothing too do with you is Crazy.

Somebody needs a hug.

That's your only comeback when you know I'm telling the truth.

Celebrating another team win over us when it has nothing too do with you is a bitchass move.
