RE: The truth is unc could not live up to expectations
- Posted by trueblue0100Only an idiot with an IQ 25 points below Forrest Gump could call UNC's elite 8 run with 4 injured players a failure. Of course, we have plenty of those types here.- Posted by Krzyzewskiectomy
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!
7 out of 8...definitely a (flameout) pattern.
