Your Unofficial Home For Duke Football Opinions & Coverage!
looks like we'll be stuck with Pitt-Oklahoma State for through at least the 1st 2 TV timeouts. I'll be back at around 8:15 or so
is it just me, or is Pitt in the top-5 every november and december, and by march, you've forgotten they even play?
uh oh... let's hope there's no overtime here...
While we're waiting... I'm really eager to get Jack McCallum's book on the Suns season last year. Sports Guy recommended it today and it looks like a rare inside look at an NBA team.3-2 Duke at 15:58...on pace for a 30-20 win!
wow... 3-2 after the 1st TV timeout... this appears to be a barnburner...what's wrong with our Jewish savior?
That was an amazingly crappy shot when working with the full shot clock...The last great sports book I read is "Miracle at St. Anthony's." I know... I know... I sound like Dick Vitale. But that is actually a really terrific book.
Remember JamesOn Curry originally committed to UNC, but they dumped him after he got arreseted.On another note, what do you think of the AI trade? I think Carmelo won't be happy by the end of the season -- Iverson has never gotten along well when the Sixers had another star player. I'm not too concerned about the Nuggets, even with Najera.
That end of regulation shot was so bad, I bet even Jason Terry could have created a better look.
What of this dude?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mywHF7CAn4
Here's more fun while we're waiting...you'll remember the search for freedom in this game.
I think getting AI lifts the Nuggets into the top tier of teams in the West along with Phoenix, Houston, and San Antonio.You??
Do you think we'll get to see any of the first half?
I think this is going to be a long season of denial for you.
Based on the score, doesn't look like we're missing much.
Well, I'll see you for the second half Joel!
Duke's been sitting on 10 for an awful long time!
Duke is 4-of-24 shooting right now.
4 for 24???? Those are Joel Israel like numbers from long range!!
I wonder what Duke's lowest scoring first half in the last 20 years is? You've gotta think 14 points is pretty close.
It appears we're making a comeback!! We're up to 17!!
Now 20! An 8-0 run spread out over about 11 minutes.
Aforementioned search for freedom...forgot to include the link earlier. You'll remember this one.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThyXogDylGQ&mode=related&search=
Listen, you can start talking smack about the Mavs once you play the Rockets to within 30 points. Until then, keep the noise level down.
somehow i don't think 1 game undoes a decade of domination
I can't get used to Gonzaga in the red uniform, it looks like we're playing the Toronto Raptors
Jew from the wing!
good call. and is not obvious that shaggy dude is trying to be morrison?
Paulus should know much better than to throw it into your own backcourt... He is making way too many absolutely brain-dead plays
is this your first time watching paulus play this year? that's what he does -- make a three, make three turnovers.
Can we grab a defensive rebounds?? I thought McRoberts was a good rebounder.
mcroberts has slid out of the lottery in every projection i've seen now. it's still early in the season, but he may have to come back another year now.
The announcers should have nicknames for Scheyer's shots... Could you imagine? "Scheyer! The dreidel from the corner!!"
I was joking with the Rabbi that it would be great to be an undergrad now, and go to the game dressed as a Rabbi with 7 friends each wearing a yarmulke spelling out Scheyer.
It's too bad Bill Brill wasn't there to catch Paulus.
Paulus has a lot of Wojo in him. Both good and bad. That Wojo won a National Defensive Player of the Year award despite being the worst perimeter defender on his team is still one of the most amazing feats ever
Dave McClure seems like an impoverished man's Shane Battier
I think that comparison is the biggest problem. Paulus seems much closer to Wojo in talent than anyone thought, and that's not a good thing.
McClure was almost an afterthought coming into the season, but now he's to Battier like Julio Lugo is to A-Rod.
I agree. There seemed to be a perception that Paulus was closer to Hurley than Wojo... And that's far from the truth.Scheyer with the dreidel from the top!!!
Why are we talking about julio lugo?
Did I bring down the blog again? Dudes?
Why is Kobe at this game?? Doesn't he have better things to do in New York? You know, hotel staff to have sex with??
I don't buy that Kobe ever considered coming to Duke -- I thought he was rumored to be headed to UNC if he hadn't turned pro.
Did Dan Schulman just call someone "T-Mac"??Welcome Undude!!!
here's a thought to ponder...if the Monster was still at Duke, would he have earned PT at center on this team? Given Zoubek's erratic play, I think yes!
I had always heard the duke rumor, but alas, we were not meant to cheer for a rapist until the Sheldon Williams era.
I think Zoubek should study Yao Ming's tapes. He towers over opposing centers. He is being way too impatient with his moves right now. He needs to learn to take a breath, and play deliberately, but with a purpose. Like Yao Ming, unquestionably, the most dominant interior player in the league right now.
that was gratuitous
The Monster's out of the cage! So I was in Cameron Tuesday, and when Zoubek is at the line, the students do the hands in the air, woosh thing, but while their hands are in the air, they make a Z by connecting their hands with their thumbs. I suspect the dudes will be doing that as a new gang sign...
my theory on one big reason (besides the obvious) why duke struggles on offense this year? without redick and williams, they don't get the same calls from the refs like they did last year. a ticky-tack foul against the guy guarding mcroberts reminded me; we just don't get the cheap fouls like we used to, mainly because we lack a dominant offensive player.
i just spent the last two minutes trying to make a Z with my thumbs.
Wow. If I had played at Duke, I wonder if they would do the "Z" sign for me! Of course, if I played at Duke, I probably would have had more success with SMG.
Duke women hammer #21 Pitt by 21, becoming 12-0 for the third time in the last 15 years. Looks like the top three in the ACC are the top three in the country again.
Franchise will be informed of this SMG mentioning, and he owes you a punch at the next DudeMania.
Why doesn't McRoberts ever dive to the basket after setting a pick. I feel like a pick and roll with him and Scheyer could become a go-to offensive set for us - and that's something we definitely lack
when scheyer shoots free throws, do fans say l'chaim when he makes it?
They don't... they try to hant his name to the "Ja-son Will-iams" "Car-men Wall-ace" chant, but it doesn't work, due to a missing syllable. I tried to start "He-brew Ham-mer, clap clap clap clap clap" but it didn't catch on. Damn anti-semites...
"He killed Je-sus" clap-clap clap-clap-clap would also work for Scheyer
As I said to Weitao, I'd love to be an undergrad now and dress as a Rabbi at games with a beard, yarmulke, sideburns (paes) and a Scheyer jersey.
That would be fantastic! So, that Maryland kid from long ago dubbed the Jewish Jordan clearly never quite lived up to expectations. Can Scheyer be the Jewish JJ or even the Jewish Bird?
Or the Jewish Trajan perhaps.
That's not a very smart play by DeMarcus. Time for Scheyer to step up.Uhh, Dick, I don't think any Duke basketball player has made close to a 1,400 on the SATs
Don't forget Taymon!
Wow. What a huge bailout foul drawn by McRoberts
I almost dislike watching DeMarcus play this year, realizing if he had played anything like this last year, the dudes would've gone to Indianapolis.
I was talking with a UNC fan yesterday, and he was discussing the history of players he's hated on Duke. Most on his list he hated for obvious reasons (Laetner, Wojo, JJ), but he also hated Trajan. How can you hate Trajan? He also hated Shane, which, of course, is very undude.
Joel, I think you subconscious racism is seeping through
He probably hates that Trajan buried UNC with 7 threes in February '07. Hating Battier is just pure envy, since UNC has never had someone so universally beloved during college.
Seriously, if you don't like Battier, you don't like people
For Shane, he went with the old flop argument... And I can at least see Shane being very annoying and over-loved if you hated Duke. But I Back Duke, so I back Shane.
am i the only one who has had a harder time getting excited about this team? not because of anything they've done, but just because last year was so excruciating, with the buildup all season to contending for a title. and then after the way they collapsed, i've just found it harder to get up for each game.
My gosh... Not to trash on our cheerleaders... But wow....
Do anyone else think Josh McRoberts' mom is pretty hot?
on an unrelated note, Mike King will be in town working the Cowboys' season finale, and joining me for the Mavs/Warriors game.and cowboys' playoff tickets go on sale tomorrow. weitao, when do the texans tickets go on sale?
I think it's harder just because we don't know any of these young kids yet... and I find McRoberts' lack of world domination disappointing.Greg Paulus' mom is hot.
Damn, it was McRoberts' mom... nevermind.
Dude, you and I are on the same MILF page!
The Texans are beyond incompetent... They are laughably bad... David Carr reminds me of Quincy Carter, minus the wheels
dick vitale loves paulus like he loved wojo--in an annoying sort of way
vwz said... The Texans are beyond incompetent... They are laughably bad... David Carr reminds me of Quincy Carter, minus the wheels And the drug habit!
I also think this team is frustrating because you know they're not ready to win it this year, and yet, you also assume McRoberts is gone next year, so you're kind of off a year.
wow -- they just showed our early acc schedule and we should be 16-1
the problem with Wojo i always had was that people confused "chasing after a guy because you're always getting beat on the 1st step" with "hustle."Vitale lost all credibility with me on the NBA when he crucified the Rockets for taking Yao over Jason Williams....Good game boys....
yeah, maybe part of the frustration is you know last year was our best shot, and we're not likely to be in that position for quite possibly a few years.
Head Dude, will you buy us tickets if the Cowboys and Pats meet in the SuperBowl? I don't think the Pats will pull it off, but I think it's worth your money.
don't rule it out, but since super bowl tickets cost over 2K, you can just about rule it out.
Joel, since you're a big law firm lawyer, will you buy me tickets to the Rockets Mavs Western Conference Finals?
Well, I thought I would try... I mean, you would feel like less of a provider if I didn't ask.
Dudes, I LOATHE Screaming A Smith
Sweet! Quite Frankly is up next!
weitao, if the mavs play the rockets, you can fly up here for the games. and pigs will be flying in the seats next to us.
alright dudes, i'm off to bed.
Giggle, giggle... good one, joel
Well then, I guess I should go to bed too... Sleep well!
