    i'm a duke basketball fan. i'm not a fan of duke university's nerds and geeks that only go there for 4 years, only go to games when the team is a national title contender and don't know anything about the game. crazies were original and creative back in the 80s when BOG was leading the student section. when duke's admission standards got too high, the quality of the students section suffered.

    you should get a ticket behind the goal. A real live jackazz behind the goal would definitely make someone miss a freethrow.

    Yes, they should. As long as they do not put up anything offensive, then I do not see a problem with it

    To answer your question about free throws and carolina "class":

    1) Yes, signs should be allowed, and 2) people SHOULD attend "class" at UNC, even athletes.

    I know! Until last night, all I've seen were the 15' tall version of Calvin, and the brick. But last night, they pulled out all the stops -- there was a "crazy, shaved-head Britney Spears", Snooki, etc. I think it looks kinda funny to have all those big head props there.

    I may be in college but I would ask if you have completed 4th grade. This is such a juvenile response. I am not trying to be mean or smart to you but you need to grow up. I also just read your response to the marine who takes offense to the National anthem being mocked by NCSU fans and you were way out of line talking like that to someone who put it on the line for all of us. You need to grow up or keep those types of thoughts to yourselves.

    I personally absolutely agree with you. A small amount of fun stuff but not the huge signs, noodles, spinning wheels. They do look tacky. But I need everyones feedback so the variety is good but as mentioned above it kind of mirrors whatever the coaches allow. Thanks for the good original input.

    Duke's creativity has taken a nosedive since nothing has been done creative or different since speedo guy 1 - which was used on Jackie Manuel so it must've been 2004 or 2005. The 2nd speedo guy was just copying the first one. Part of the problem is that Duke has alloted more tickets towards friends and family and they now take up just about the entire area behind the home bench and they made the endzones entirely guest tickets and grad students. Without any undergrads behind the baskets, you get the predicted lack of creativity. I am glad they don't use the big spinning wheels, bricks and big fatheads. Anytime you turn on a game now, most of the big schools (like big 10 games for example) are using them and it just looks tacky.

    I thought the posters State fans held up were hilarious - the larger than life CJ Leslie, the huge brick, etc. - way better than those balloons the fans used to wave. Wake has those tie-dyed things that make me dizzy even watching, and no one can top Duke's "Speedo Guy". I honestly don't know how players get past those, but they've become part of the game and are fun to watch.

    Back in the day at Boston Gardens, there was an opponent who would visit the Gardens when his team played the Celtics, who was allergic to cigar smoke. When his team played at a particluar basket during the first half, cigar smokers were abundant on that end of the court. When the baskets were switched in the second half, the cigar smokers suddenly appeared at that end of the court. It's called home court advantage.

    Take advantage of it.

    Some times player only meetings are needed. You're right! It could be Duke and not have a meeting and let it go and flame out in the 1st round and then put all the blame on the departing one ( Austin Rivers).

    Amazing that some of you have taken my simple question and turned it into the jive talk that goes on practically everywhere on this sports site. Interesting but I guess I should have anticipated it.
    In reviewing the responses from the Carolina and NCSU sites it would seem if the coach approves then so do the fans. If the coach does not approve neither do the fans. It is a shame as I thought some of you might have an Original thought about this. That however is also interesting. Thanks for participating. Now off for brunch and then class. Beautiful day here on the coast.

    Actually K has earned the respect by winning 4 NC's and 2 Gold Medals and winning when he doesnt have the best team/talent. See 2010.

    Roy, not so much. Both NC's have been senior dominated veteran teams. As proven by this year. You dont hear Coach K teams requiring team only meetings. The kids have too much respect for K and actually do what he tells them.

    I think it is embarrasssing that Reggie Bullock has to mention to the other players that Roy has won championships and he knows what he is talking about. If I were Roy, I would be really pizzd that was made public.

    Maybe you are gettting votes because at some point the voters figure a team like UNCheat with 7 MCDaa's on it might finally play up to their potential.

    But with Roy, you never know. His two NC's have come with veteran teams and dominant players. This year, he doesnt have that.

    Sure, K has earned that respect as well. Part of the reason Dook gets seeded too high just about every single year and tends to flame out early (see: Lehigh).

    Sure it is...we're still getting votes despite a horrible performance against a terrible UVa team. Glad to see you've noticed, though...when you have a resume like Roy's, you can get respect even if your team hasn't performed well enough to earn it (yet).

    Current roster? You mean the current roster of NC State players who have never beaten UNC in basketball? Or your coach, who has never defeated UNC in basketball? Or Roy, who has more national championships than he has career losses to NC State? UNC knows how to beat NC State. NC State has no clue how to compete against Carolina. And until then....SCOREBOARD!
