They are losing by 35! Pretty unreal, watch them drop to like #4 after this.
UPSET ALERT: Miami early 15 pt lead on the Dookies
Hello Mrs Larkin!
Duke is fouling with under a minute left and down 30? Really?
Coach K always a dick.
Duke got 60 and Miami only won by 29.
Here comes the court rush!
Fuck duke, lose with some class...going for the steal down 30 with 10 seconds left? Lame
/this is probably overreaction but it seems very duke like to me
No over reaction. Spot on.
Wow, I actually typed that with a straight face. I'm going back to my beer and not type all the immature things I want to say about Coach K right now.
I wonder if Coach K was harping on them saying they'd better work hard to the last second. There was a play in the 2nd half where they inbounded the ball after giving up a bucket,and Miami came and stole it, took a shot, missed, got the rebound again. At that point you could tell Coach K was going Brian kelly on the sideline.
and near upsets tonight. I'm so happy we play tomorrow night.
Jinx That ! Canes win 90-63
No 30 point win?! You did jinx it you bastard!
Jebus, 27 points? Has Duke ever lost by 27 points?
I think Clemson blew them out 74-47 a few years ago.
Years ago, maybe in the early 90s, I think they lost by 30 to UNLV too, but I could be wrong.
Oh yeah, and on bigger stages than this. They lost BIG to UNLV in the 1991 championship game by 30 points, 103-73.
That Duke-UNLV game was the last college basketball game played before the Fab Five hit the scene.
At a press conference before the championship game the next year, when Michigan was set to play Duke, reporters asked the Fab Five what they had been doing a year ago as high school students.
Jalen: "I was home in Detroit, rooting for UNLV."
Ray: "I was home in Texas, rooting for UNLV."
Chris: "I was in my living room, rooting for UNLV."
Jimmy: "I was at my friend's house, rooting for UNLV."
(From "The Fab Five," by Mitch Albom)
1990. Then they upset undefeated UNLV next year in the Final 4. #payback
Gotta beat Purdue and @ Illinois if we want that #1 beside our name.
Dang, this title needs to be changed.
#1 Duke goes down by 30
#9 Butler loses at LaSalle
#8 Florida down at the half to a terrible Georgia team
#17 Creighton getting blown out at a middling Drake team
What in the world is going on tonight?
I'm happy we play tomorrow night. Hah.

Was the definition of evisceration...
Miami had that lead at halftime, lol. This was a perfect storm of a college bball game. Rarely does a team hang 70 on Duke, so 90 is hilarious (with 80 of those points coming in the paint, lol.)
Kansas is going to get a fair amount of #1 votes as well
Seth Curry was 0-10 from the field... ouch
For all the #1 talk we've got to take care of two things:
- Win our games vs. Purdue and Illinois
- Hope Kansas doesn't pass us (17 game win streak they are on?)
Kansas beat a solid team in K-State, more recently than we did I might add. We don't have as much flash-in-the-pan after this week even if we win both games.
Also I'm bugged that we'll probably be #2 in USA Today/Coaches poll, but that's just me...
I still don't see how an 18-1 Kansas team would pass a 19-1 Mich team if both win out. Both teams have 1 loss to a ranked team, and 2 wins against ranked teams. The only edge Kansas has is that they have 2 road wins over ranked teams.
Michigan having an extra game over Kansas is just too much for them to pass us in the AP poll. At the same time, no way we pass them in the Coaches.
I don't see how it doesn't make sense. I'm not talking about the AP where we would undoubtedly be #1. Polls tend to follow the "step-up" approach. The better question is, when Kansas leads M this week in the Coaches' Poll, beats a ranked team on the road and (hypothetically) a top-25 RPI team in Oklahoma while Michigan beats two unranked teams (again, hypothetically), why in the world would they switch the two around?
Duke students always get mad when they don't get a chance to enjoy the team at their best.
(Note: If you're too young for Elton Brand, this was the Duke student that got pissed because he declared early for the NBA before she could sleep with him.)
Still looking like that, I'll be Elton Brand for 3 or 4 minutes.
Is this a video clip or something?
Purdue makes me nervous now. I think I'd be less nervous if they were a ranked team but now they make me nervous in a underdog/i-hope-we-arent-sleeping-on-this-game way
I'm more worried about Illinois shooting 60% from 3 against us. We are their #1 rival after all.
27 points 3rd biggest loss by a #1 team, and tied for 6th biggest by Duke.
Did idiot Lunardi tweet out to "The Duke Haters" about how they are still the best team in the country yet?
Umm, so that Minnesota win might be losing some of its luster. Gophers down 9 with 4 to go at Northwestern.
Unless it's Penn State, all losses in conference get chalked up to how strong this conference is. If anything, I'd like to see NW get hot and back on the bubble. That would boost our profile a bit more.
I mean we have one at both venues so it won't hurt RPI, I believe.
We have one what?
I honestly can't believe I actually just wrote that. Obviously won instead of one. Wow I need to sleep. No excuse though.
NU is about to do a major overhaul on all their facilities.
Tubby Smith is kind of a crap in game coach. So is Crean, which is good news for us, as those two teams are the only ones with as much talent as us in this conference.
I've always respected coach k and his program, but it's bullshit that in a blowout like this. Duke will drop like 4 spots and the u will rise like 13 for beating them. We will see I guess
So, about that Minnesota team that we beat but happens to be on a 3 game losing streak and just lost last night to a not-so-good Northwestern team.
