Does Noel look under control? No, a charge is a control foul and when you are out of control you are going to be charged with the foul. Stop the bitching selling the contact happens with every team.

Calipari is clueless. Plenty Duke players are in the NBA and they take charges there as well. Calipari isn't entirely unfamiliar with the NBA. He was a poor 72-112 as a coach for the Nets and is mostly remembered for calling a reporter a 'fuging mexican idiot'.

Stay classy.

Calipari said what everyone who isn't a Duke fan has known for 20 years. They sell it, it works for them, and I don't blame them I blame the refs. I just think when kids slide in front of somebody who is taking it to the basket it detracts from the game. It reminds me of a line from the movie A Christmas Story...

Randy laid there like a slug, it was his only defense.

You don't like the rule? I don't like flopping but there is a difference between flopping and taking a charge. Flopping is when there is little to no contact and you throw yourself to the floor like you have been hit by a truck. Has Duke had floppers? Yes, Paulus comes to mind. Has unc had floppers? Yes, Hansbrough and Zeller come to mind. It happens everywhere and it's something we have to deal with.

I don't like players who fall down upon contact. That's crap. Man up and try to stop somebody yourself without relying on referees. If a guy comes into the lane like a bull in a china shop then yes, holding your ground while getting trucked is acceptable. But when some white kid slides over to draw a foul on a future first round draft pick, it's pretty easy to see what's going on. Duke is abusing the rule and the spirit of the rule. Have been for years. On twitter, writers who hate Calipari were taking up for his comment and giving him hell for backing off of them after the game.

sounds like its time to put in the charge lane under the rim like in the nba. Nevertheless, I hope duke gets put in our bracket in march. Duke took advantage of our freshmen and I can't blame them for that. But that d is not gonna play against a vet team or even uk in march.

    • To be fair...he does live in Canada. So he pretty much has to bandwagon all his teams except hockey. 
    • Won't be impeached.   Would've won anyways if it were by popular vote. His team would've approached the campaigning much differently if that was the way it worked. But that's not, and they did what they needed to win the electoral college.   Do what grown ups did after Obama won twice, and suck it up. I wasn't happy either time but I wasn't crying about it saying oh when will he be impeached blah blah blah. Yes many on the right side did do that, don't agree with them doing it either.  And I don't like Trump much either, he was very low on my list of candidates. My candidates lost to him too. Don't see me crying and whining and hoping he gets impeached so that Pence could take over (I'd much much rather have Pence as President). 
    • Damn, 4 years eh? That's more embarrassing than anything. I'll root for Duke but definitely don't lose sleep over it or anything. If I watch I'm just watching to watch, nothing more. I didn't even bother to stay up to watch the South Carolina game. If it wasn't for Z being a Heels fan I probably wouldn't have even turned that ACC final game on either ha
