Eric Gordon remains the truth.

Duke has way more scoring options than last year, but they're still undersized and Greg Paulus still sucks.

they are undersized, and it'll be interesting to see how they match up against Carolina.

but they do hate great depth, very good athleticism and are incredibly balanced scoring, unlike when they had JJ and cheif big head.

and paulus is much improved over last year.

and the fact that they're running sets that K stole from mike d'antoni only makes me like 'em even more.

i'm not declaring them national champs in november... i'm just sayin' that they're back, they're gonna stay in the top 10 all year, and they'll be a top 3 seed come tourney time, probably no worse than a 2 seed.

You kids & your crazy slang! I get it now - bad equals good, cold equals hot & nasty equals amazing. Thanks for keeping it real, dawg!








It's OK even if you weren't being complimentary - I'm used to all the Duke haters by now.

I really should have checked out one of his High School games last year. Schmeg's workmate's son played along side him - the high school is just down the street from us.

Speaking of Hoosier (as in the nickname for folks from Indiana...not Indiana University itself):

I've always been on the Duke side of the Duke-UNC fan rift, mostly due to the fact that I've had family there. Also, UNC pisses me off to no end.

Guess that's as good a reason as any to dislike them.


Truth be told, I don't dislike the 'Heels - I'll pull for them if no other ACC teams are in the running. I just won't make the effort to watch the games or keep up with the tourney after Duke's out. So needless to say, I didn't get to watch any of the 'good' NCAA games last season.

I expect that to change this year.

duke and texas a&m have impressed me the most thus far into the early season.

but, alas, it's a long road ahead... plenty of time for other teams to gell, for freshman to take the next step, etc. etc.

it all evens out in the end... there were plenty of times in that game that 'nova could have put the game away to where that last play doesn't matter...

but yea... that was a terrible call.

eric gordon aside, i'm trying to figure out how indiana can beat 4 cupcake bums and lose to the only halfway decent team they've played so far, by 15 mind you, and still get ranked 15th in the nation.

yet another reason why they shouldn't rank until january.
