    And thus starts a new year for Duke BBall. We think we're ok, since we scrimmage against ourselves, or take on an undersized Davidson, and play just about everyone. Now we played a real game, and the same old warts pop out. Granted Parker is a beast, and can play anywhere, and Hood is not far behind, but that is it. Maybe there is an under-development of the 15 to 21 feet of Plumblee left, maybe there is a lack of recruiting of a real big man. We'll do fine until we meet another big team in the Tourney. The posts here will be a delusional as every other year that we're great, but this isn't going to be 'our year'....

    If it's national title or fail for you, you've only been happy with the results 4 years in the last 33.

    Maybe you should just be a fan of whoever's number 1 every year instead of being a "dukefan"...

    Nowhere did I say that it was an NT or fail.

    And thanks for avoiding the issue. Pls, only REAL Duke Fans need comment.

    UNC's had better big men than Duke the last 9 games...How many of those games did they win?

    2 games and you have the GALL to define the entire season. Kansas won that game in the last 4 minutes, not because of who had bigs or a deep bench. Kansas hit overdrive in their transition and Duke had the wheels fall off at the same time. Duke have their fair share of tall players and Duke has a good, solid bench. Your conclusions are premature and based on supposition. Claiming your negativity as honesty and calling other posters as "delusional" looks suspiciously like the ruse of a pretender. I question your Duke Fan status.

    I could have sworn that Duke won a national title with 6'9" Boozer playing center and played for another national title with 6'9" Brand at center. As always I could be wrong but don't ever bet on it.

    As long as Wohojahowsky is on the bench, it remains short.
