    The same way UNC padded their numbers against the all time record between Duke/UNC prior to K's arrival. Since K took over Duke has been closing ground on the head to head record between schools. I have no doubt that if Dean coached longer K would have evened the head to head record with Dean. But, that was not to be and Dean retired while he was ahead....like he should have. :) He did what he was suppose to do.

    K is the best that ever coached.
