Duke peaking early?

So you picked Duke to win the NC in 2010?? So you were the one person huh?

Pretty certain no Duke fan pointed out how Roy coaching the National Team was him sticking it to UNC to stroke his ego.

Go figure. Duke fans do the same thing.

"Face it Roy wins only when he has the most talent and K wins via coaching, see 2010." randythorntonv3
99.9% of the time coaches win ONLY because they have talent. Duke ONLY had 6 McDonalds AA's on the 2010 team. Lol! Yep, K just coached them up! Yea right!
I guess he was just sandbagging when he was at Army instead of "coaching" when he had NO talent! Lmao!

Exactly. They seem to want to have it both ways. Which is the norm for this fan base.

Most UNC trolls are quick to point out how Coach K coaching the National Team was him sticking it to Duke to "stroke his huge" ego. Now this one is telling us it provided Duke an advantage. They try to spin anything into any side of any argument to make Duke look bad.

Agree that UNC has had an advantage over Duke over the life of their respective programs. My UNC associates are quick to tell me that UNC gets better players, has better coaches, etc., in hoops. Logic 101 tells me that DS & RW should have more titles than K but they don't. Dems the facts!

I love how you pooh pooh the Olympic thing. Cause everyone gets offered that gig.
And you act like Duke has recruited or had the opportunity to have the same players as other schools. News flash, they haven't.
And at least Duke has not missed the NCAA tourney 3 times in the last 11 years with an average of 7 Mcdaa's on their roster.
And how many Mcdaa's has UNCheat had over the years and only has 5 NC's. Dean had a distinct advantage for the majority of his 36 years as has Roy and they only have two each. How many seniors and Juniors were on your 2009 team.
Face it Roy wins only when he has the most talent and K wins via coaching, see 2010.

I get a kick out of Duke & UNC fans whizzin back & forth over the following;
most NBA players, most McD's AAs, most excuses, most this, most that. The bottom line is this...
K has 934 Ws & 4 NTs
Dean won 879 games & 2 NTs
Roy has 679 Ws & 2 NTs
All 3 have too many accolades to mention on here, all 3 are HOF coaches, & I'd be willing to bet that none of 'em care what their critics have to say. LOL

I didn't state opinions, I stated facts.
I said since K has had to deal with the same obstacles as other coaches with top players leaving early that things have evened out. That doesn't include the advantage he has with the national exposure with babysitting the USA team and landing the most McDonalds AA's since 2000.
