    I follow real basketball players fatboy! Kobe, Durant, Lebron, KG, Rondo, Irving, Paul, Melo, Westbrook, Wade, Love, etc. No one from UNC worth following. Glad to see Raymond Felton doing well. Handstravel should be tackling cars on forty!

    Yeah UNC fans you cant say much because Handstravel got away with the travel, flopping, football tackles, rugby play, hockey hip checks etc every game. Didnt know that him and Ben Handstravel both play for the pacers? Did mommie set it up?

    It appears you suffer from the same affliction since you're not Duke, which really is the "Harvard of the South".

    Link to NCAA sanctions against UNC basketball little guy?

    Playing eventual national champion Kentucky on their home floor versus this shell of a Kentucky team on a neutral floor is quite a bit different.

    You are just another State fan with a massive inferiority complex.

    Sad.

    Poor ABD fans. In the midst of a 3-year scandal dispelling any notions about the "Carolina Way", "public ivy" and "Harvard of the South" and this is the best they have? Maybe if you didn't have athletes who shot under 50% from the line when they weren't plagiarizing from grade school blogs or other online sources, you could beat Kentucky too.

    Thou speakest of that which thou knowest not. I had someone come down on my foot causing a severe bruise condition in one incident and tore the ligaments in my ankle in another incident in a game and still never went flying through the air like I was caught up in a F5 tornado of Wizard of Oz proportions. This flop was a joke but at least it was good for a belly laugh.

    Mo...really...weak sauce. No one ever considered that a flop, just a guy tripping. You gotta own the Dook Tuna Dance that K teaches. Not a good comeback for a legend. Might have to pair you with Clemens...

    The best of flops results in a phantom foul call when there was none, and the flopper must smile afterward. Dook is a legend in both categories.

    Duke played poorly and still won. Crying will not change this.

    JR Reid (Nerlens Noel) spun around, lowered his shoulder, and charged into the defender every time he got the ball in the post.

    No..and no. There is a big difference between taking a charge and fainting every time an opposing player gets within a foot of you. It looks ridiculous. That is why the NBA banned it. This kind of foolishness is only ok if you are a soccer pansy and was never a designed part if the game. It is so bad now that if forwards were bowlingballs every team that plays dook would throw a strike with every drive.

  • Dr. Pwnt Nov 14, 2012

    Taking charges is a part of basketball. It's called a "flop" when its called against your team and "great defense" when your team takes one. Classic Carowhina on display in this thread. I think it's interesting that UNC fans appear to be more butthurt over the Duke win than Kentucky fans. Weird.

    After the game, Calipari mysteriously said he "didn't remember saying that. It was a joke, cant you guys take a joke?" Stay classy, Cal.

    I've seen references to the NCAA gathering information. But I've never seen any reference to an investigation started as a result of the gathered information.

  • DooksucksV3 Nov 14, 2012

    Before anything was made public, they started working together to go through a process of seeing what happened,” Krzyzewski said of Duke and the NCAA. “As a result of that, we want to honor the integrity of that process. That’s why I haven’t made any statements about it and will continue to do that. I hope you would understand that there is an integrity involved in the process, and we’re cooperating fully, and I’m going to adhere to that. I have complete trust and confidence in all the parties involved and am very proud of our compliance record over the 33 years that we’ve been here.

    Little guy, you are the one who said there was corruption in UNC basketball.

    I asked you to provide proof, and you can't.

    Dook however has and is being investigated.

    Poor little guy is in denial.

    I don't know which is worse, the cheating of K, the long term institutional racism at Dook or intentionally killing patients at the hospital.

    What a sad state of affairs at that place.
