This is the Real Duke Blue Devils

Its just as simple as that. That basketball program is the biggest bunch of pussies on the planet, and Coach K is one of the biggest closet scumbags around.

I'm just mad that Dickie V wasn't able to do the game yesterday so I could hear what excuses he could make for Coach K's boy Gerald Henderson taking out Tyler Hansbrough in the late moments of yesterday's Duke vs UNC contest.

Listen to some of the shit coming out of Coach K's mouth:

"We'll take all responsibility, but if there's any way Gerald Henderson did
that intentionally, that's crazy," Krzyzewski said. "That's not the way he plays
and not the way we play. ... I feel badly for Tyler and what happened, but there
was no intent."

"The game was over before that," he said. "I mean the outcome of the game,
let's put it that way. That's unfortunate, too, that those people were in the
game in that play. Maybe this wouldn't have happened."

Thank god for Pat Forde who points out that Coach K called a timeout down 13 with under a minute left. Clearly he didn't think it was THAT over now did he?

This just sums up my thoughts on Duke Basketball for my whole life. They care so much about their image - that they're a bunch of clean cut golden boys. My contention this entire time is that there isn't a single clean program in division 1 male sports...the dumb ones get caught, and the smart ones don't. Coach K has been a smart one. Nothing more, nothing less.

I love this quote from Forde:

(There was only so much falling upon the sword Coach K could tolerate, right
there in the Dean Dome after getting his head handed to him. Taking the high
road is always easier when you're beating Carolina on a regular basis, which
Duke isn't doing anymore.)

Great point. At least the real Duke is coming out this year.
