MrTouchdown is the most irrational of the UNC homers. My cousins actually went to UNC, and they think it is gonna be a very rough year even if JMM stays. And these are guys I rarely ever hear a word other than, UNC is the best, from.

Also, learn what an edit button is, double and triple posts ftw.

BTW gratz on your self given #1 class rank in 2013. No respectable site would give any sort of ranking to that class seeing as about 90% of players in that class haven't committed anywhere yet. Its the same as awarding a state to someone in the election with 1% of the polls reporting. Just stupid.

According to Rivals.com, the #1 recruiting source in the country, Carolina has the #1 ranked class with 2 VHT players commited. And we have the #8 class this season which could also improve.

It's a shame that your cousins feel so bad about the team. It's probably just shell shock from a sad day when we lost three great players.

As far as irrational, you are mistaken. It sucks to lose these great players, but Williams is a top 3 coach in the country and continually recruits great players. We will be fine. I don't expect them to win the NC next season or anything but if you think Carolina is NIT bound or not going to be in contention for the ACC crown you are a retard or just an ignorant ABCer.

It's awesome and refreshing about how much hate these other ACC fans are giving Carolina now! it shows who is really the KING of the ACC!

And let's be honest here: today is the highlight of Duke's miserable season. They should worry about not being humiliated on national TV in the first round of the NCAA tourney by a high school team. K is a great coach but he is in the twilight of his career and his philosophies won't translate into the next generation of college basketball. He had an excellent run though so respect to him.

Yeah a lot of people are upset with them all leaving and are mad at them, But i feel bad for them, I mean they came to Carolina to win a national title and they just had the worst luck, Everyone knew they were the most talented team... Oh well time to move on.

Yup. It's gonna leave a bad taste in our mouths for a week or so but there's nothing can be done.

This comes with the territory in regards to recruiting great players.

State has one of the best classes coming in next season they've ever had, and they are going to have to keep getting great players if they want to be relevant again. It's gonna be real funny if CJ Leslie leaves this season.

Dude that is a year and a half down the road and I am sure that will change since 98% of the top 60 have not commited yet.

Well we don't really know if McAdoo is staying yet or not, plans can change at the drop of a pin. but if he does in fact stay, and we get that kid from UConn Oriahki or however you spell his name, i think we will still be good. duke fans should be happy, at least they can hang with UNC now.

Lol we beat yall this year and twice the year before and won the national championship the year before that, and K's record vs UNC the past ten years is pretty dam good. Duke is never "in trouble". When was the last time they made the NIT? Its UNC that is trying to hang with Duke.

Strickland is a much better player than Tyler Thornton and Quinn Cook.

I think Cook could develop nicely into a quality PG, but thornton is terrible. You know this is true. Leslie will be coming off the bench for us, not starting, which won't be the case for those two scrubs I just mentioned.

That is a bit of a stretch seeing how Strickland averaged 7ppg, and 2apg while Thornton averaged 4ppg, and 2apg. I think it is delusional to say that Strickland is MUCH better than Thornton or even Cook for that matter.

I honestly don't keep up with the recruiting classes b/c I think a lot of that stuff is inaccurate.

But, being an alum (and I'm still currently on campus through May or so), I do know the team pretty well. I don't care what our incoming recruiting class is rated, we're gonna have a rough go of it next year. Losing Zeller AND Henson is a huge hit even with McAdoo coming back. McAdoo has a lot to improve on and has to show consistency.

And even though we have Strickland and McDonald coming back in the backcourt, that really is negated with Marshall leaving. Any incoming recruits have to adjust and I just don't see it being a smooth transition with such a young team. I just don't think we'll be very good next year.

I was pretty sure the other 2 were leaving but I think any other year Marshall would have stayed but there are not many PG's in the upcoming draft. If he doesn't go this year there is no guarantee he would go this high or even higher again. Hopefully JMM leaves too just for Roy hiding him all year until Henson got injured.

He actually texted me that they were gone before CBS sports was reporting it a few days ago, so he isn't shellshocked, he is actually being realistic for once. Rivals.com is a joke, pretty much anything done by Yahoo is a joke. Scout.com and even ESPN.com's recruiting sites are better than Rivals. And don't make me laugh about Roy Williams being a top 3 coach(Also proof that you are an irrational homer). I like the guy, even as a duke fan, but its not like he has ever been accused of being a strategically good coach. His plan year in and year out is push the ball up the court as fast as you can, and try to catch the defense out of place. And yet again, every year when they are forced to play in the half court his offense bogs down because he's not good at X's and O's. And if you are going to go off hate determining who is the king of the ACC, most carolina fans on here troll anything about duke at one point or another, so your logic is flawed.

lmao.....Irving and Rivers have a combined 1 win in the ncaa tourney. yeah, Duke is never in trouble.

So I guess Coach K should have lied to Kyrie, the same way Roy lied to Harrison Barnes, by telling him that he would likely be drafted anywhere form 5-8 last year.
