Mason Plumlee Update

This is so laughably wrong as it relates to UNC under Roy Williams.
Out of the Class of 2002 -
The highest rated player to play as an upperclassman was Ray Felton, the second highest was McCants.
Out of the Class of 2005 -
The highest rated player to play as an upperclassman was Hansbrough.
Out of the Class of 2006 -
The highest rated player to play as an upperclassman was Ty Lawson, the second highest rated was Wayne Ellington.
Out of the Class of 2009 -
The highest rated player to play as an upperclassman was John Henson.
Out of the Class of 2010 -
The highest rated player to play as a sophomore was Harrison Barnes.
Out of the Class of 2011 -
The highest rated player to play as a sophomore or upperclassman was/is James McAdoo. The second highest rated player to play as an upperclassman would have been PJ Hairston.
Nobody over the last 14 years has had more highly rated guys stick around longer than Ol' Roy.

0-1 in your own backyard against a #15 seed says it all!

No Larry, I'm saying what happened 25 years ago is not relevant to the conversation we're having. This thread started mocking the play of Mason Plumlee in the NBA. The response was that Mason may be struggling but overall Duke has better talent in the NBA right now.
That's something that Tar Heel fans simply cannot come to grips with so you and others have spent the last few days not debating that or accepting it but simply trying to change the criteria as to what constitutes better or shifting the focus on to safer sands from a bygone time.
Can you point to anything that would suggest that the players UNC has in the NBA are performing better this season than those from Duke? Is there anything you can point to that would suggest that the players that UNC has put in the league since 2000 are better than those that Duke has?

1-0 counts more... and why does your selective period not include 2001?

WOW...booger-boy should know that such excessive key-stroking only shows how much he needs to calm down.
(with a little luck, ball-dominator Parker will lead dook beyond the Sour 16 in consecutive years for the first time since Jabari was in like kindergarten, and the dookies can chill a tad bit)

2-1 where it counts

and the last 10 years hasn't stopped:
Duke has more quality players in the NBA and has the most recent Elite 8, Final 4, National Championship game, National Championship title, has won 7 of the last 9, has a higher current ranking, and has a better recruiting class coming next year than UNC

2 out of the last 3 sure sounds better than 2 out of the last 4 I guess.
Larry, if you're going to make an argument let's try to do it without some lame strawman like "didn't a sure fire stud according to Duke fans just transfer?" I mean, I can live with trying to decipher your typing into English but it's just not worth the effort if you're going not at least going to put forth something worth discussing. Alex Murphy was, on average, the #40 recruit in his class so trying to declare him as someone that everyone was declaring to be a sure fire stud is disingenuous at best and just a lazy argument.
You should really calm down and stop just flinging ish and hoping something hits. The "ACC Championships don't mean anything" became a lot more popular when Duke started dominating the tournament. And sure... going 11-24 against Duke in the last 36 isn't a big deal. Heck, I bet you don't really care if you lose those games. If losing in the first round of the NCAAT trumps everything where does not even making the tourney come in? 2010 was a great year. Both Duke and UNC played for a national championship. It's just that UNC's had an "NIT" in front of it and they couldn't even close the deal there.
It appears I have to repeat this for you again - we were talking about the quality of players coming out of each school these days. What does any of the tuff you've said have to do with that?

All of that hasn't translated to more success than Carolina over the last 10 years.

bottom line. Duke has more quality players in the NBA and has the most recent Elite 8, Final 4, National Championship game, National Championship title, has won 7 of the last 9, has a higher current ranking, and has a better recruiting class coming next year than UNC...
