I know it's exciting news.

Not as exciting as this if you're a Jayhawk fan:

Excuse for what? Looks like KU is kicking some ACC a$$. It's also good to see you not caring about Duke or what happens there, again.

Lol

Side track a little bit, Mr. TD; why did you change your name?

Probably because of the a$$ whipping he took in the Wiggins thread.

Just felt like it. Been wanting to for like a while. It was either this or Craig Sager. Both are American icons.

It would have been nice to have a little more depth at the 5 spot but no he was not a make or break player. I mean it's not like we lost out on the #1 player in the nation.

kansas is legit as fug.

kentucky, louisville, kansas, msu.

top 4 teams are nasty.

They have basically went from a fringe top 25 team to a top 5 team in the past week. Bill Self is getting it done.

Yeah I have to agree w/ both of these comments. Kansas did go from a bubble 25 team to a top 5 team in a week. 

 

Regarding Black and his commitment, I know K and his minions put the full court press on him because K knows what a lot of Duke fans are either too stupid or too afraid to admit. They are going to be eaten up inside next year and are basically going to have to shoot 70% from the field for them to be relevant. 

 

I can't say I really blame Black for not heading to Durham. He doesn't want to spend his final year of college ball setting screens for three point shooters. That and fighting Marshall Plumlee for minutes.

The three true frontcourt players—Josh Hairston, Marshall Plumlee and Amile Jefferson—have a lot to prove going forward. A proven body up front would’ve been great, no doubt. But when you look to how next year’s team will play, missing out on a 260-pound forward who doesn’t excel in running the floor isn’t the worst thing in the world. It may be unconventional, but I think we’ll see lots of lineups next year that won’t include any of those three. Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood may be the two most talented players on next year’s team and are both 6-foot-8. Put them on the floor with Andre Dawkins, Rasheed Sulaimon and Quinn Cook and it’ll be the most exciting show in college basketball. That includes Kansas and Kentucky.

Luckily for Duke, the ACC has seen somewhat of an exodus in terms of its dominant big men this season—no more Alex Len at Maryland, no more Kenny Kadji or Reggie Johnson at Miami, no more CJ Leslie or Richard Howell at N.C. State. If the Blue Devils can take consolation in one thing, it is that although they are getting smaller, so is everyone else.
