    Actually Duke frequently out recruits Carolina in basketball. The kids just rarely reach their potential. I mean McRoberts was ranked higher than Tyler. Yeah. Hard to believe. Maybe if Coach K was not so scared of black people he could do a little better.

    Sounds a lot like Roy. We will see how Roy does this year.

    I watched the game, and it was physical on both sides of this one. K'Tucky drove hard to the basket just about everytime when it went inside. Coach K tells his guys to stop the play. Hands up and the body solid stance. They didn't flop like Calapari stated. He used this to influence some of his powers that don't know any better.

    Coach K out-coached him with more experience. Coach Calapari can recruit. He better thank his lucky stars over the past few years. He wins with talent. He does have discipline too. He knows the game. But, he wins with the top guys most years.

    LOL, sure. Just like how beating Kansas last year was a predictor of Dook's tournament success.

    You have to give him credit. He got an awful lot of those wins before he started teaching cheating.

    Its basically just a form of cheating and I'm totally against it, but you have to give The Rat credit for using it so effectively in 900+ wins.
