Doesn't matter if it was a great Duke team or not. They should have rolled Lehigh. Based on what you're saying they should've been playing in the NIT.

The reality is that this was supposed to be a rebuilding year for Duke and they drastically overachieved during the regular season and played themselves into a high ranking. The team definitely ran out of gas during the last month of the season and the loss of Ryan Kelly was the straw that broke the camels back. Lehigh was also a horrible match up for Duke with their quickness. Duke had struggled to defend the dribble drive all season.

Lost to a 15 seed in the first round... and it was awesome.

Rebuilding my ass, you dookies were talking so much pre season poo, and over glorifying your cute little freshman and the plumlee bros....the freaking plumlees! That is who you guys were all excited about.

Floppin, you are taking the brunt of all of the unc fans right now, bc you are the only one man enough to show up and eat crow...

However, your fellow dookies are the cowards leaving you out to dry. I have not seen bigcatdaddy or cats since unc smacked dook on senior night. But that's ok, cause, next year/the off season/when unc plays their last game of 2012, they will show back up and talk poo.

But I do agree, that loss dook suffered in the first round to a 15 seed was probably the most embarrassing game a top 25 (all time) team has gotten ever.

Why is it more embarrassing than the Missouri loss on the same night. They were ranked higher than Duke and lost to a team ranked lower than Lehigh. So technically it should be a worse loss, people just hate Duke, that's all there is too it.

We are in ACC country. Big 12 was a fraud all year.

Do you really have to ask? Because Duke is Duke and Missouri is Missouri. They have been one of the biggest names in college basketball for decades and lost to a complete nobody. Missouri might have been ranked higher this year, but nobody cares about Missouri outside of, well, Missouri. If it were UNC, UK, KU etc in the same position the reaction would be no different- these teams are basketball royalty.

I knew we weren't going far this year anyway, I had us going to only the Sweet 16 in my bracket, it just sux when you lose in the first game. Now I wonder if Rivers is gone??

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • 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.
