    No worries here. Have been to Hawaii many times, but not once have I monitored WRAL for sports commentary.

    And just FYI, when a school accepts almost 50% of it's applicants like NC State does, probably not in your best interest to talk about admittance issues.

    Translation: "I should have worked harder to get into a good college based on my own merits, rather than settling for UNC*, which accepted me solely because of my phenotypic traits. I will probably never earn enough money in my job as a public servant to take any sort of vacation, much less one to Hawaii."

    Oh he is...no doubt about that.

    When you spend that much time in the basement with your "UNC Index Cards", you're far too pasty and fat to get out on ANY beach, especially Hawaii.

    Wow.....all i have to say is that if your are sitting in Hawaii fixated on UNC, then you have a huge issue. Unless it is a "Why I am obsessed with UNC" conference, it might be advisable to get outside and have a real life, if that is possible for you.

    Even worse...worried about UNC's former )black) student-athletes while visiting President Obama's birthplace of Hawaii.

    You canNOT make this stuff up, folks. I'd dare you to try.

    Why should I lecture them, I don't see what they are posting.

    I read this forum, I post in this forum. And that is really all I care to worry about. The fact that you troll here 24 hours a day is an issue you need to worry about.

    Well you aren't the only UNC troll on these forums... Maybe you should lecture the ones that ridicule state on the state forum instead of worrying about me...

    I have no idea what is going on at the NC State forum. Much like you have no idea what is going on at the Duke forum.

    If you have a problem with UNC fans at the NC STate forum, have at them. I'm commenting on things posted here and, as usual, so are you.

    Yeah, that's why UNC fans aren't all over NC State fans on the State forum...

    Thanks for the history lesson...

    Back to the present... Duke finished the season ranked #22 and as Coastal Division Champions...

    Congrats to Duke on that.

    And congrats to Duke for doing something else that UNC, or probably any other school, has not done.

    Gone to court to say how bad their football program was to get out of a game.

    Duke moved for judgment on the pleadings, and won. Its argued at the hearing that the standard for "similar stature" was very low because the quality of Duke football was as low as it gets. As Judge Phillip J. Shepherd of the Franklin Circuit Court described the argument in his June 19th Opinion:


    The term 'team of similar stature' simply means any team that competes at the same level of athletic performance as the Duke football team. At oral argument, Duke . . . persuasively asserted that this is a threshold that could not be any lower. Duke's argument on this point cannot be reasonably disputed by Louisville. Duke won only one football game, and lost eleven, during the 2007 football season

    very true...

    http://www.goduke.com/ViewArticle.dbml?ATCLID=209361583 The Blue Devils earned a final national ranking of No. 22 in the USA Today/Coaches poll, while the Associated Press logged Duke at No. 23 in its poll.

    Rankings mean nothing until the end of the season.

    North Carolina is ranked No. 50 nationally in the preseason by the Orlando Sentinel, which is counting down the top programs in college football prior to kickoff. The publication states that the Tar Heels, who were 7-6 a season ago, have "very few question marks" heading into this season and could contend for the ACC Championship.
