Nothing to lose. Everything to win. Syracuse. Kansas. Ohio State. Wisconsin. It's time to close the deal, on the biggest stage of all. GO BLUE! Beat the &@$#* Duke Blue Devils!

Duke vs. the Fab Five, revisited.  Nothing could be further from the truth. 

This game will be Duke vs. Duke.  If we win it will be because of defense, 3 pointers, and free throws.  It will not be run and gun and lobbing alley-oops to our dominant Center.  To win, we will need to out-Duke Duke. 

Sorry to dissapoint you mister Nantz, but here is no Fab Five story here.

"It was my first Division I game as a Division I coach -- at Duke," Beilein recalled of the Dec. 1, 1992, game at Cameron Indoor Stadium, in which Duke beat Canisius, 110-62. "We walked into the shoot-around It was like a weekday game. We walked into the shoot-around and there was Krzyzewskiville set up. I go, 'Damn.' I said, 'They're set up in Krzyzewskiville to play Canisius?' I asked somebody, 'You're set up, camping out for the Canisius games?'
<br>"He said, 'Heck, no, we play Michigan this weekend.' And so how ironic is that right now."

"Michigan is too young to beat Duke." - Charles Barkley, with utter confidence. I hope he eats his words, regurgitates them, eats them again, then takes laxative, so he swiftly poops them out, then eats them yet again.

Practice harder than anyone else, lead and drive the team to succeed. If you want to be a number 1 guy who leads his team to a championship, and not hope you get traded to be Jordan's caddy. Great physical gifts and toughness; notoriously bad work habits.

He really only beat up on Hampton after the game was decided. Hopefully his return messes up the chemistry and flow of the Duke team after being out so long!

Visited my dad this weekend and came across my old school Fab Five shorts.  Yep, have them on right now.  Still fit 40 pounds later!  Gotta love the baggy shorts!
