    don't confuse these girls with facts...they paid too much in tuition(if they even went to college), so they HAVE to believe that gold plate is real gold...don't upset them...they'll start calling you names to raise up those egos...just tellem to click their heels and say "there's no place like home"...LOL

    dook has cost the ACC over $1.25M for not making it to the Elite 8 the past 2 years.

    If a team makes the NCAAT every year ranked as a 1 or 2 seed, I would venture to say that getting to or past the Sweet 16 is a reasonable expectation. Duke has failed to that in 7 of the past 8 years. That is a pattern of choking and even some of the experts have asked if it's now fair or time to attach the choke label. And you don't need a link to understand that. By the way.....that's the most for any team in the the ENTIRE history of the NCAA.

    7 out of 8...definitely a (flameout) pattern.

    Duke again missed the Sweet 16 in 2011 after winning the NT a year before. UNC made the Elite 8 a year after going to the NIT with a team that lost its top seven scorers from the previous year, five or six of whom were drafted. How many total players from each team was it that were drafted after 2009, 2010 and 2011? I sure that UNC leads Dook hands down.

    Whether UNC went to the NCAA, NIT, ABC or XYZ it still doesn't diminish the FACT that as a 1 or 2 seed, Dook has had very minimal success in reaching or getting past the Sweet 16. Example: 2012 - A No.2 seed lost to a No. 15 seed - Dook was one of those and they failed in 2011 as well. Am I the only one that sees a pattern? Didn't think so!

    What ACC team last won the Nat. Title?

    And what team has flamed out more than Dook when it comes to an early exit before of during the Sweet 16? The answer is nobody.

    And a national title. Funny how you left that out.

    I don't think that will erase the flameouts.
