RE: Since the '97-'98 season Duke Men's Basketball has held the #1 spot for 72 weeks. That's 8 weeks more than the next two programs combined.

Funny, K and Duke had as much or more success when DES was at UNCheat.
Don't think so. ACC championships for Duke went up dramatically after Dean Smith retired.
1981-1997 (17 seasons): Duke wins 3 ACC tourneys and 5 ACC regular seasons with Dean around
1998-2012 (15 seasons): Duke wins 10 ACC tourneys and 7 ACC regular seasons without Dean at the helm of UNC
Sorry, the evidence doesn't support your assertion.
Speak with data.
