You people who try telling me Duke is crumbling are crazy! Duke runs one of the most classy programs in the NCAA. After the 1992 Elite 8 game vs Kentucky Coach K went into the Kentucky players locker room and congratulated them on a good game and told them not to get down because they just played one of the best games in college basketball history.</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">After reading your post, one of two things has become obvious. Either you have completely disregarded everything posted prior to your message, or you are a complete twit. This topic has been talking about how Duke may be crumbling, due to some of the things that happened over the past few months. Your classy program is not as classy as it used to be, due to some of the breeches of character that your precious coach K allowed. What happened in 1992 has no bearing on this topic whatsoever, so don't try to bring it here. You want to call duke classy, yet they've accepted players that would make Fresno State fans shudder.
And Christiensen only went after the ref because Indiana got every ****in call in the 2nd half!
Much like Duke got in their game against Notre Dame? Many would say that Duke got a taste of their own medicine after getting so many games like that.
Bring up all the dirt about the Duke program you can, but I'm sure every other ACC program has done many things worse than those of Duke.
Probably not over the span of the past 18 months. Let's see Duke's Rap sheet:
-Two players accused of Drunk Driving, one of which gets teabagged on the campus of a bball rival.
-One player, a devout mormon, loses his cool during a game, and curses at a referee, which is taboo in his religion. He had an intent to assult the referee, but was restrained(emphasis on intent)
-One player is thrown out because of poor academics.
-One player pushes his girlfriend, and is charged with assult.
-One recruit barely qualifies at one of the worst schools in chicago. Despite this, he is accepted.
-Another recruit is recruited , but then accused of gangbanging an ohio woman. Despite this, he is accepted.
-Ah, let's not forget the early departure of the big three of your team.
