    If you re-read your post, it says that you do not know who Duke has played. And for the record, I see what you post and not what I want to see.

    I am a Duke fan. Not sure why you would ask this as my post is about Duke and has nothing to do with UNC. You see what you want to see. Hope this clears things up for you.

    Hard for them to still be in the top 5 after we whipped em buddy, top 5 rankings generally reserved for unbeatens this time of the season, but since we have played so many and won, things a lil different this year.

    Reading comprehension will tell you that no one in the current top 5 has lost a game. Now, Duke has won all of their games thus far. Can you guess how many teams Duke has beaten, that remain in the top 5? The1, you seriously need a lot of help. I don't know who dook has played, but Duke has beaten 3 top 5 teams thus far this year according to the main sports news sources. Let me know if you have trouble digesting that.

    So we are all agreed that dook has not played any team that is currently ranked in the top 5.

    Hey ducksicksv3? you do know that when a top five team loses, like they did to duke, that generally they go DOWN in the rankings, wow the intelligence of this one, dont worry friday will be here soon and im sure the team chemistry for unc bball squad cant get any worse.

    Duke is the team that started UK's fall and knocked Louisville and OSU out of the top 5. No one in the top 5 has a loss, and the 6th and 7th place team are Louisville and OSU.

    Louisville and OSU aren't in the top 5 anymore because they lost their game against Duke. Duke is the only game both of them have lost.

    Post of the month. Shouldn't really be predicting anything in December, much less searching out troll material to keep up with the demand of starting 8 troll threads a day. But, If ya wanna play the prediction game, Roy disappoints the haters, way, WAY more times than not.

    I'm actually surprised by the lack of team chemistry with unc, rookie Paige and the lack of leadership from mcadoo, it may come, but definitely to far to go to match Duke this season.

    Its not even about the talent. UNC has tons of talent, great athletes. They have a long way to go to get the whole package together. When and if they do, they will be a top ACC team. I just think they have too far to go this season to get to Duke's level.

  • blueduke4 Dec 10, 2012

    Duke is head and shoulders above unc this year, there not even the second best acc team imo

    Typically, you would be right. However, this Duke team is still improving and I don't think UNC could win against this level of defense and composure. Duke is that much better than UNC this season. Mark it.

  • seedofdoubt Dec 10, 2012

    Have to laugh at this one. UNC's storied defense (chortle) and their overpowering big men (chuckle,snort) will stop Duke from scoring at will (snicker). Duke will abandon their stifling man-to-man defense and play a loose zone for the entire game, double-teaming Hubert when he gets the ball. Kelly and Mason will play with their left arms tied behind their backs. Curry and Cook will refuse to shoot 3's. Oh yes...K will offer no adjustments during halftime.

    If they keep improving, I'm sure they will be at least the 3rd or 4th seed overall. They still have alot of room to grow and it's gonna be a fun ride.

    Two years ago and last year, UNC had NBA-level players. That cannot be said about this year's team.

    As for the "K puts huge emphasis on winning" the tourney, they all do. Especially the ones trying to get good seeding in the NCAA tourney, which usually includes both Duke and UNC (though that's clearly up in the air this season).

    Although I admit Bleacher Report is just above the N&O for sports quality -- which means the N&O is really REALLY bad -- you should know that UNC will challenge Duke for the ACC championship. Need proof?

    Two years ago, UNC was rebuilding. Who won the ACC regular season in the last game of the year? Oh, and Duke returned several key seniors too. Last year, Duke was on fire early in the season dominating the pre-season thanks to the player God sent to earth just to show us how basketball was played (or so his ego would have us believe) Austin Rivers. Who won the ACC regular season? The last two years, Duke won game 1 between the two and lost game 2. Do you notice a trend?

    Of course, UNC won't win the ACC tournament in part because K puts huge emphasis on winning it and Roy Williams does not. Still, just because UNC doesn't deserved to be ranked now (this is coming from a UNC fan too) doesn't mean they won't catch up. History says they will. The Roy Williams system is complex and hard to learn but once learned it is very effective.

    And the N&O is horrible, to put it politely. Carlton Tudor isn't Stephen A. Smith bad, he is still worst than most.

    Suggesting that Carolina will challenge Duke for the title is comedy gold. It makes it even funnier that State is not mentioned.

    Carolina will more likely challenge FSU for 6th place in the conference. LOL

    This is why no one should take bleacher report seriously. But read this one for its comedic value. No mention of NC State in the article.
