    You could have shortened the title and just said..."Since Dean Smith retired..."

    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.

    Considering Coach K has been a head coach since 1975 I would hope he would have more championships than Roy. Roy has only been a head coach since 1988. Roy has the higher winning %, and if they started coaching at the same time Roy would have more wins than K. K is a great coach, but Roy is a hall of fame coach as well.

    and when did DEAN retire?

    Duke went to 7 of 9 FF's and won back to back NC's when Dean was still at UNCheat.

    Anything else?... View More

    Too bad Dean couldn't beat Bubas in the head to head. Vic whooped him like a rented mule.

    well, gee, make up your mind. Does head to head count or not?

    Lol at Dook on the bad end of a 25-1 run.

    Actually, again, you are missing the point.

    I'm not questioning K's coach ability. I am saying both coaches have had success to be proud of.

    You are more concerned with who was better, as if it means something to you.

    It is always going to be a subjective measure. And if you can't accept that, it is your problem.

    The BOY was also basically saying Duke is a program worthy of bragging about beating.

    It slapped itself right upside its BOY head.
