It could be worse. ya knowIf Dook is the #2 team in the country, it is a terrible year for college basketball. What an ugly performance by the Blue Devils. Miami has an historically bad defense and came in ranked 82nd according to KenPom. One would think a team with 5 future NBA players (Moore, Banchero, Keels, Griffin, Williams) and the supposedly GOAT coach wouldn’t have any problems, but alas, we rinse and repeat…it was an entertaining game though!
That Syr-Wake finish was pretty incredible too, there were some good ACC games yesterday, but honestly college basketball as a whole looks terrible.
I chalk it up to the one and done phenomenon and the new transfer portal. Anybody with a lick of talent can get drafted in the 2nd round, play for 3-5 years and make 3-5 million dollars. That’s life changing money. Anyone else who isn’t happy with their situation simply leaves and goes to another program. Hard for any of these coaches to build competent competitive basketball teams with so much turnover.
Beating FSU this season is nothing to brag about right now, and Syracuse' win last night got them back .500. I think FSU will be ok by the end of the year though. Like almost everyone else, the transfer portal along with one and done has Leonard Hamilton reworking pieces all around. SYR is meh...wake has beat FSU and syracuse at home in it's last two games- might they make it three in a row tonight vs duke?
duke is slightly favored so not even vegas is overvaluing them after their miami debacle.
Should be a good one.
They looked like a HS team for the first 18:00 of the game. I was questioning (as I do with MANY teams with younger players) their preparation AND drive. The lack of the latter is unacceptable, to me. I turned it off. I'll watch anybody play, if they show heart.State and Duke get valuable road wins. Should be good Saturday when they play each other.
K probably should just stay sick. They looked a whole lot better without him.
He played for, and was an assistant under, Bob Knight after all...in the Army as well as Indiana...Roy was just as foul mouthed as k and way more emotional. But I’ve seen/heard the f word out of k’s mouth more times than I can count. I go to the acc tournament every year it’s held in North Carolina and we usually have low level seats behind one of the benches and Duke is always on our side of the court for whatever reason…..he’s as foul as ever but most coaches are. I hate when people get pinned for stuff that happened a hundred years ago.
I dont think k ever coached at indiana. Could be wrong.He played for, and was an assistant under, Bob Knight after all...in the Army as well as Indiana...
I'll never understand why people hate a winner (unless he's cheating to do so......which he is not).I dont think k ever coached at indiana. Could be wrong.
With K's upbringing he would be odd if he did not know and use all of the words.
I wish I could find those sitting close enough to hear his profanity and are offended by it so I could replace them and their precious ears.
The one game i was behind his bench was the last game he coached in the infamous back injury year. Clemson rolled them but i never heard any profane words from K. The clemson coach (barnes) got a tad excited but that was to be expected.
I looked hard when the GT player talked trash to him last week and didnt see the fbombs that action deserved.
Maybe that's why he's not winning anymore- he mellowed out too much. Lost the edge.
on cue leg injury for duke-oh well there's always next year.
they'll probably start staying out of games to avoid getting hurt. Nothing to play for at duke this year.
bacot will disappear when you need him. He should transfer to duke.
Hopefully state and wake win tonight.
