Now if we could just get UNC out of there too, then maybe Vitale would finally die :#

They didn't even drop as far as they should've. They're still 26th in both polls.

This is all due to that chick crying rape, it has lowered the places self esteem.

The fact that you are all laughing at this further proves the point that they are one of the best college programs in the nation and have been for a long time.

They'll likely be back to competing for a national championship by next season. They don't stay "down" for long.

I'm happy as a lark. The only team I hate worse than Duke is UNC.

UCLA and Memphis are now tied for the longest active streak at 34 straight weeks in the Top 25.

Why does everybody hate Duke? I've never understood it. They are a benchmark for any collegiate basketball program. They have great loyal fans. They graduate their players. They have some of the classiest people in basketball. So you are telling me you hate Grant Hill and Shane Battier? Yeah, what a bunch of intelligent assholes.. come on. I'm a KU fan, and by no means a Duke fan..but the reason for all of the Duke hate is simply jealousy and maybe a touch of hearing so much about them. But they deserve most of the cred they get

Duke is classy the same way people assume New England is classy.

I don't care what program you are in football or basketball. Nothing lasts forever. I think the joke is on the rest of college basketball here. That was an incredible run.

I don't mind a lot of their players, especially from 5+ years ago (although Wojo and Chrissy Collins can eat my ass). There are 2 things that people hate about Duke: 1) the national media's obsession with all things Duke. Last year the team underachieved and yet the media was lauding what a great coaching job K did with what little talent he had. The media didn't mention that most of the team were McD's All Americans coming out of high school. And 2) Coach K is a whiny little bitch. He pisses and moans about every single call made against his team and tends to pout and sulk when his team is not playing well.

I have been a Duke fan since I was 10 yrs old, roughly 1984. And I can understand why people hate them so much. Any team who wins year in and year out has a lrge number of people who hate them. I would hate them too if I wasn't a fan, so it doesn't offend me when people bad mouth them.

The main reason that I hate Duke is not that they're so good - it's that ESPN, the polls and refs treat the Blue Devils like they're God's gift to basketball.

Duke is always overrated. Teams routinely get screwed by the refs when they play Duke.

But I think the thing that annoys me the most is listening to people slob Coach K's knob for running a clean program. Coack K is a lot of things (great coach, great recruiter, etc), but clean he isn't. After all, Quin Snyder was his No. 1 recruiter for several years. <sarcasm>I'm sure Quin NEVER cheated while he was Duke. Nope, just at Mizzou.</sarcasm>

I have a conspiracy theory on this (why coach K seems to get favorable calls from the refs)....

Since Coach K is part of the same rat family that Mike Shanahan belongs too....they must have some sort of mind-control abilities that influence weak-minded officials and easily impressionable members of the media.

Never understimate the power of the rat!

We should look into this deeper and find other members of the rat family to see how deep this conspiracy goes....

Duke lost their first two games in the '99-'00 season and yet were still in the top 25? Strange. I wonder how many teams have done that.

I don't care for Duke because of Jason Williams a number of years ago. And JJ Redick. Maybe it's not them as much as the way Duke played basketball. I can't stand watching teams with the "we're going to shoot 35 three pointers per game; if we make 20, we're going to beat you" style of play. That's why I never cared for Tejas either.

I think part of it has to do with the 3 point line. I think it's done wonders for college basketball. But, in the same vein, I think it's dumbed down coaching.

Krezewsky doesn't look like much of a coach without JJ Redick, or a bunch of Hamburger AA's. Same with Rick Barnes.

But, I guess the same could be said for just about any coach.

Duke is classy the same way people assume New England is classy.

Case in point, Gerald Henderson.

The last minute of the game today perfectly displayed why Duke is unbearable; fouling and calling timeouts down 13 with under a minute left, coupled with a blatant cheap shot that guys like Billy Packer will defend.

Yeah I couldnt believe that. The ball was already out of his hands and he cocked his elbow. He obviously plays prison rules.

What a silly ending to this game. I blame Roy Williams for not taking Hansbrough out. This is a heated rivalry and things like this will happen. DUKE 72 UNC 86

That was intentional. The ball was already out of Hans hand. That's rivalries though.
