ok you can close the thread now... nothing left to discuss. barring injury problems, no one is beating duke.

Every time there's a Duke home game on TV and I see the students bobbing up and down in their seats, I want to grab a giant whack-a-mole mallet and beat them all into submission.

duke is rediculous... they won't lose more than 5 games the entire season... if that many.

the performance they put on last night was wonderful to watch. they beat a seton hall, a power conference team mind you, by 50 damned points... and they didn't do it because if their superior athleticism... they overwellmed them with their superior SKILL.

god forbid... a skilled team. what is the world comming to.

Not doubting Duke at all, even though it seems JJ has been there for the past 10 years, but Seton Hall is just not a very good team. They're picked to be bottom dwellers of the Big East along with my Providence Friars.

Seton Hall looked awful...I stopped paying attention at 33-5.
BU gave Duke much more of a game Monday night. You never had the sense they'd beat Duke, but they seemed to belong in the game, SHU belongs in a high school conference.


I don't think Duke will win it all...not enough size and power, so on a night in March when those 3's don't fall...they're going to be sent home.

oh come on.

the only team in the nation that could challange duke for the title this year is texas... and they'll playe each other in early january at the meadowlands.

seton hall did beat manhattan, a team comparable with BU, by 14.

duke has a god 6 or 7 guys who can shoot the friggin lights out. it's not like it's just J.J. and if he goes cold they're done, like last year... they've got TONS Of kids now. they return baisicly everyone important from last year, while bringing in the #1 recruiting class in the nation... and they're all skilled recruits, not athletes who need a year or two to develop but will never get that time because they're gonna jump to the NBA in a season.

this duke team is rediculous... i'd be shocked if they don't win it all. shocked.

i can't wait to see 'em at the garden next friday.

Just remember that I told you on Nov 17, "prepare to be shocked".

and as for the BU game... the coach at BU's not an idiot. they held the ball, they ate the clock, they made duke take as few shots as they could.

BU was up 8-10 points early in the first half and proceeded to ge throttled for the rest of the half. BU never stood a chance.

seton hall went out there and fell right into duke's trap. the way K coaches... he attempts to intice opposing teams into thinking they can do what they want to do, when the reality is they can't. so seton hall had no game plan, went out there and tried to run up and down the floor with duke and got absolutely demolished.

Which is what I said, you never thought BU had a shot at the game, but they at least competed.
Now a smart coach (sorry Louis) with better players than BU has (and Duke will play a lot of teams with more talent than BU) will be able to use a similar philosophy with greater results.

don't be fooled into thinking that.

you have to take two things into effect... 1, it was the first game of the year. 2, BU stayed close for 10 minutes, and then duke absolutely dominated the game from that point on.
