I don't think you'll be afraid. You're too arrogant, and your fan base has been lulled into unrealistic expectations every season that they probably haven't given it a thought.

I'm just relishing this upcoming season where we'll beat you in football for a 6th straight year, even though our team is far less talented, and we'll beat you in basketball when our team is finally comparative in talent.

It will be the one year when the baby bandwagoniers won't be able to say "Wait til' basketball season" after an embarrassing loss in football when your team is loaded with NFL talent.

Most UNC fans are to busy pulling for LSU/Alabama come football season.

I can understand the hate and animosity for the Tarheels. We are what every school wants to be. We turn down better recruits that most schools only dream of.

As far as the idiots who think Carolina is "gonna suck"...you need to think again. Our recruiting classes the next two seasons are incredible, and if JMM stays the heels will be starting 4 McDonalds All Americans next season, with another on in Hairston coming off the bench. fuging awesome!

Sure, we'll be a young team, but with the way recruting and the NBA influence is, you gotta be prepared to lose great players early. I know State has an awesome class coming in, but if they want to become relevant and good again, they are going to have to keep recruting 4-5 star players year after year.

You never know with Duke. K does better when he has less, but Tyler Thorton..Quinn Cook....Ryan Kelly? LOFL!!!!!

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.

Uh, bro, Dex played in 19 games. Thorton played the entire season + the embarrassing loss to Lehigh.

Duke fans are barred from talking sh1t for a while after being embarrassed by a HS team on national TV.

This is true, Duke fans won't admit to it, but the highlight of their season was when KM, Barnes, and Henson all left for the NBA.

Eactly, see 2010. Oh wait!

Meh. Dookies living in the past as usual. Since that season (which was a blessing in disguise since it got rid of larry drew), we have back to back elite 8's, 2 ACC championships, and a broke wrist away from playing in the F4 tonight.

What has duke done? Aside provide one of the biggest upsets in tourney history this year?

What does that have to do with anything? Averages are averages, the number of games isn't really that relevant. As long as its more than 1-2. And as for you have "incredible" recruiting classes? You have 4, 4 star prospects coming in next year, not exactly incredible, and while Paige and Tokoto are solid players(not superstars by any stretch), Johnson and James will likely be ineffectual in their freshman seasons. And for 2013, a lot of stuff can happen before now and then, 2 5 star prospects is a good start, but if you dont get anymore then its hardly incredible.

tl;dr

but Strickland's averages would have increased. He would have been excellent to have down the stretch especially with marshall out.

Are you not bragging about what your team has done in the past? FWIW Duke won a title 2 years ago while unc was losing in the NIT.
