    Dook won a NT with an illegally paid player.

    Sad you guys still count cheating as a win.

    No. Duke was not a favorite to win it all like when BC said take that Heels.

    UNC trolls? LOL

    Not sure why you think these statistics are fun, I think they are rather boring.
    Butthurt? You worry too much.

    Yep, the original post was facts regarding Duke's history related to being ranked #1 in the country. The trolling started on the first reply.

    It was copy pasta from OP. Not my own. I have not confirmed any of that information. I simply wanted him to know that this topic didn't start with jabs at UNC.

    So 3rd person will feel better; #1 at losing to lower seeds in the Sweet 16. *If this stat is true*

    uke has been ranked No. 1 123 weeks - second-most in NCAA history behind UCLA (134).

    Coach K has led the Blue Devils to the top spot in the AP poll 105 weeks.

    Duke has spent 92 weeks ranked No. 1 since 1990 - 40 more weeks than the next closest school (North Carolina) in that span.

    Duke has been ranked No. 1 in the AP poll in an NCAA-record 16 seasons under Coach K.

    Including Wednesday's game, Duke has played more games at No. 1 (210) than as an unranked team (141) under Coach K.

    Duke has now been ranked No. 1 in either the AP or Coaches polls in 18 of the last 28 seasons.

    Entering Wednesday's game, Coach K is second in NCAA history in wins (183) and games (209) while on the sideline for the No. 1 team in the AP poll.

    Duke has been ranked No. 1 in 11 seasons since the 1997-98 campaign. The Blue Devils have been ranked No. 1 68 weeks in that span, 31 more than the next closest school (North Carolina).

    This is all about Duke. The UNC fans could not resist.
