    ^against deep teams like Kansas, Coach K has to spread out the minutes otherwise the starters will have nothing left at crunch time.

    ^ And shows why he doesn't come in until the 7 min. mark. Too soft too get important minutes yet.

    She skeered to death of unc having to face Duke's starters and wishes they could play the reserve squad. Can't say that I blame her though, what with all them beat downs still so fresh in her mind.

    Britt figured out he was a felon working for K and went to UNC to get away from it.

    Sad.

    So Duke has an 8 man rotation consisting of Hood, Parker, Jefferson. Cook, Thornton, Jones, Sulaimon and Hairston. Which one of these guys do you suggest K should throw under the bus to give more minutes to your guys? And why, exactly, should he do it?

    Red shirt when he arrived, injured early the next year, had an operation this summer and couldn't play for several months. ONE game into the season and you somehow believe he's been shoved off to the side? It is a long season. Might want to save the rants till April when you have something to work with. BTW, including this, year Marshall has THREE years of eligibility.

    I kind of feel bad for Marshall. He was lied to, talked in to giving up a 2 yeara of eligibility, now forced to watch.

    Luckily for the NCAA they won't have to come back to chappy hole because they never left there. They've never been able to shut their office there down. One scandal after another just keeps popping up. They'll probably just let the PJ squad handle it.

    Guess the NCAA will have to come back to Chapel Hill and speak with Nate Britt when that happens...

    About what? How Coach K made his two oldest sons millionaires, national champions and graduates of one of the best universities in the world?

    I wonder if Perky is going to spill the beans?

    All the guys you named are four year guys, and Dawkins was not a five star. In the case of Murphy and Plums, they still have alot of time left at Duke, and their playing time will increase as they get better. Dawkins needed a year off and is still not back to his personal best. Takes time, but would not expect you to understand the inner workings of a successful program that does not have to cheat.

    Coach K doesn't promise playing time to any recruit. If you play for Coach K, you earn playing time in practice. If you don't earn it in practice, then you didn't deserve it. How hard is that to understand?

    Probably. K would throw his family under the bus if it would get him more wins. He already has shown that he will associate with a felon and look the other way as players are paid so he can win games. No one is safe around him.

    Marshall was red shirted as was Dawkins, and Alex Murphy. Plumlee only got 5 minutes of playing time, Dawkins 2 min. and Murphy 8 min. in a game that Duke won 111 - 77. I know most of these players enjoy sitting on the bench and watching Coach K rather than playing, but you would think that K would be honest with them and tell them, "Hey, I've recruited so much talent, that I really could only use you if someone got hurt." Why don't you transfer to some place else where you could play and enjoy your time in college." We know K won't do that because he's the Coach King Narcissist of College Basketball. A man more interested in his record than the players he coaches. Marshall was a McDonald's AA, Dawkins was a 5 star recruit who left high school early to help the Duke program out, Alex was a 4 star recruit and 10th ranked coming out of high school. I see the same writing on the wall for Semi and probably Hairston. I can't imagine that Ol Perky is satisfied with his son sitting on the bench and not getting any national exposure or a chance to develop his talent.
