    Duke didn't get to this spot by default. Repeat. Not by default. They earned it by beating some quality teams. Comprehend.

    ...close enough. Congratulations on the number one ranking Duke. You have earned it.

    And yet, he is quoted as calling someone else out for "starting a bunch of troll threads" How many does he create on average in a 24 hour period? 1? 3? 5? more?

    Sometimes your team can let you down. Every true fan goes through it. Luckily, duke fans get to have a lot of great times.

    Really did not believe this team would get here this fast. Gotta stay focused now and take it game to game, the target on their back just got bigger. In K we trust.

    Loads of games to be played. I do like that Duke's defense has improved. Keep Mason out of foul trouble, and he will do a quality job. He's the most improved player that I've seen for Duke in the past two seasons. Duke has more and better shooters this year, and they have a solid bench.

    You about near lost to ECU. No room to talk about last year. But it if you want to talk about the past, lets relive that awesome NIT run you had when Duke was beating Butler for a national championship. I got ur crickets right here!!!!

    Dook is well on their way to losing to a 16 seed.

    ...but will take a #2 on themselves when they lose to a nobody in week one of the NCAA tournament.
    ratastically predictable

    It doesn't matter to me simply because it's December 16th & we have a long way to go. It's nice to talk about but that's about it. They haven't even started conference play. Looking forward to conference play and everything after that.

    The first sign that it does matter is to make a thread titled "Duke #1" and feel the need to start off by saying "it doesnt matter to me". Duke moved up one spot by default, why would this hurt UNC fans? When duke loses the next team will move up, Thats the way this thing works...

    Yet another troll thread you`re becoming known for.

    It doesn't matter to me - Referring to Duke moving up to #1 because Indiana lost in a week that Duke didn't play.

    Butler, you know that team Duke fans claim was no goodDuke fans said Butler was no good? Sorry, it's you UNC fans that have been saying that since April 2010.

    It doesn't upset me in the slightest. It makes me happy to see Butler, you know that team Duke fans claim was no good just took out the number 1 team in the country. So UNC has lost to the #1 team in the country, and the only team that could knock off the #1 team in the country. Nothing for UNC to be ashamed of there. Duke is playing well, and congratulations for the #1 spot.

    It doesn't matter to me. But the number of butthurt UNC fans just went thru the roof.
