You guys are just makin' it tough on yourselves. How are you going to feel when a "crumblin program" kicks your teams' butts again? You know it's gonna happen. If I was you I'd be tellin' how great Duke was so when they beat you it won't feel so bad. Thugs, low grades whatever, it's the final score that counts and all your teams have had the thugs, dopers, drinkers and dummies long before Duke ever did. It's like the pot callin' the kettle black. It appears it's the way college Bball is now, get used to it. Get real.</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Coach Doh, that's exactly my point. For years, Duke BBall has been deemed classier that the other athletics(because of folks like Grant Hill, Battier, and JWill) and of a higher standard than other teams in D1 ball. However, the past few years have shown that the devils have descended to the level of the teams that you claimed to be above for years.

No one here has said a single thing about the actual athletic ability of any of the recruits here, we merely are saying that your precious integrity is no longer as great as many duke fans would have us believe. I'd be the first one to admit that Duke has a strong team of athletes, but their character(as well as coach K's) is what i've come to question.</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">We've been forced down to that level <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

I'm not worried about my team crumbling. I'm a Cowboys fan after all, so nothing scares me. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Oh well...at least Duke didn't have an 8-20 season. We did win a few games after all.

You people who try telling me Duke is crumbling are crazy! 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. 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. And Christiensen only went after the ref because Indiana got every ****in call in the 2nd half!

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.
Classy, indeed.

So Duke was standing high atop a tall pinnacle ALONE with it's classiness until the last couple of months. Apparently it was the LAST of the major players to go down. From what I'm reading here that should be something to be proud of and If you're the last one standing, you win in my book. Are there any programs out there anyone would like to hold up to Duke's? Name a school who has not had a player arrested, name one that hasn't admitted a blue chip player with borderline grades, how about one that hasn't had someone sit out a game or 2 for team rule violations. Duke has their problems but they've held on longer than most and when they do have problems they put them out in the open and don't try to hide them. Everybody can't be Grant Hill or Shane Battier but Coach K will give anybody a chance.........as I said before watch a "crumbling program" kick ass and take names next year. Anybody looking forward to coming to Durham? GO Duke!
