i will say this... if duke is to be knocked off early in the NCAA tourney, it will be by a team that runs a princeton-style offense... i.e. lots of backdoor cuts

I kind of liked the Florida A&M offense from last year, where you play 5 swingmen and iso Shelden Williams or (for this year) Josh McRoberts for a dribble drive. Memphis should seriously consider it if they get a rematch with Duke.

Any offense that takes advantage of Duke's overaggressive perimeter defense is a good idea.

i don't know how any basketball fan, despite any dislike for duke, wouldn't be at least mildly interested in the prospects of seeing J.J. Reddick & Adam Morrison duel it out in the national championship game...

forget the fact that they're both white, which will get brought up regardless if this was to happen... they are the two most skilled players in the nation right now, regardless of color. they're not blessed with incredible athleticism, just incredible talent brought on by years and years of hard work. you can be given jumping ability at birth... you can be blessed with incredible height... but no one is born with an incredible jump shot.

i'm not a duke or gonzaga fan... i'm really not a fan of any one college program, thus the penalty for growing up in the new york area. all the pro teams you could possiably want, no friggin college teams worth a damn.

so really the only teams that i actually root for to do well are teams where i know someone... a friend of mine plays for northwestern, so i'll root for them until he graduates, and another friend of mine is an assistant coach at quinnipiac, so i hope they do well, too. but how anyone who considers themselves to be a basketball fan won't be rooting, even a little bit, to see these two players go head to head in the NCAA tourney is beyond me.

did they higher the NFL's refs to do this game?

Villanova gets an opening steal, has a fast break, and they stop the game because the shot clock wasn't working, despite the fact that the shotclock had zero effect on the play at hand.

Do you suppose Mike Nardi had a traumatic experience as a kid where he was playing hockey, scored an empty-net goal at the end of the game, and got pummeled by some goon on the ensuing faceoff?

Just curious.

quack.. quack.. quack...


i think he thought that the better play would be to dribble the clock out, which if there was, oh, 5 seconds left, it might have been... but with 14 seconds left, take the basket... there's no one within 20 feet of you

He and Sutton are drowning away their sorrows in a bar.
