    Also, you just finished saying Duke was a bubble team, now your saying they could deserve a 8? You are what George Bush calls " a flip-flopper".

        Duke is not as superior as they use to be is better terminology. First of all they finished .500 in their conference games and that doesn't favor a higher seed, they lack the senior leadership of players that have been "there" and they've struggled as of late.

          Who's denying that Duke isn't as good as they used to be in past years? However, they are far from " sucking".

              • Wow, you mean that the "maybe prize" didn't lure them all in?!

                Perhaps you should solidify it to a definite prize for the winner.

                  so that's what, possibly 8 from the ACC and 5 from the Big 10?


                  Sweetness you finished 4th in a inferior confrence, also your RPI is terrible compared to Dukes. Who are the bottem of the barrel in the big 10? PSU, Northwestern, Minnesota?? Are there any teams even close to that in the ACC? Hell no. How many top 50 wins do you have? How many does Duke have? How many losses do you have outside the top 50? 4?

                  P.S. how was that big win over Iowa??



                  Physco T has to wear a mask. Ha
                  You have no idea what our season was like, so just stop right there. You had an entirely healthy ball club the entire season and finished 7th in the ACC. Don't even start with me on that because you have no clue about our team and what we've been through this season.

                  Duke deserves to be an 8 or 9 seed, but they'll get a 5 or 6, possibly higher depending on what they do in the ACC Tourney. They should not have been ranked in the preaseason and they shouldn't be ranked right now.

                  Like I've said time and time again to you: (here's what this team went through)

                  1) EJ decommits and goes to IU 2 weeks before signing day
                  2) Rich McBride gets a DUI and is out 6 games
                  3) Brian Randle tweaks groin in practice and is out 4 games
                  4) Jamar Smith sprains ankle and is out 8 games
                  5) Rich Semrau almost dies b/c of a bacteria infection in his chest; out for season
                  6) Shaun Pruitt chips bone in his wrist
                  7) Chester Frazier has a foot problem and can't play at 100%
                  8) Randle comes back and reinjures groin, out another 6 games
                  9) Warren Carter sprains ankle and misses a game
                  10) Marcus Arnold breaks nose
                  11) Chester's father is in serious condition, but he can't go home to be with him
                  12) Jamar and Carlwell get into a serious car accident
                  13) Bruce doesn't even have a full squad to practice with on a daily basis
                  14) Chester misses another game due to a foot injury
                  15) Jamar and Carlwell are gone for the rest of the season

                  Now come and tell me how the hell we are 21-10 this season and how we finished 4th in the Big 10 with that right there. We've probably had the most adversity of any team in Divsion I College Basketball to my knowledge yet we're most likely going dancing barring a big collapse against Penn State.

                  We have no bad losses (unlike Duke), we've won big games, we finished above .500 in the conference, and we notched 21 wins for the 8 consecutive year I believe or something like that. So please, don't come and talk to me about my team b/c you have no idea what you're talking about.

                  I called Duke not being very good this season and you wouldn't listen to me. Well a mediocre conference record and a 7th place seed in the ACC Tourney proves my point.

                    Well I'm above the level of cheap name calling but lets stick to the facts. I said that if Duke was another team they would be considered a bubble team. We all know Duke will get in on their reputation alone. Its pointless to argue with such a home-grown biased Duke fan, your not going to allow any point about how bad of a year they have had nor will you accept it. I assume you watched the game yesterday and they were plain horrible. UNC beat them up and down the court, out muscled them on the glass, and played better basketball. But of course you will argue this and go ahead to your hearts content, the fact is they are in the bottom half of the ACC and the stats don't lie!

                      Home grown? I'm from SD. Saying Duke will get in based on their reputation is absurd. Do you honestly think the selection committe picks teams because of their name? The game wasn't yesterday wasn't so much of Duke being horrible as UNC just dominating because they are a better team by far this year. Finishing in the middle of the pack in the ACC isn't exactly bad considering you have so many other talented teams.

                        I know your team has had difficulties, but that does not matter right now. The bottem line is they performed rather poorly with a fairly easy schedual. I am not questioning Illinios talent i am questioning their performance, and that is what matters.

                          Well with that said then you should have no problem admitting that Maryland is a better team considering they beat Duke twice and that they should have been ranked higher then Duke for weeks now...

                            They finished in the middle of the pack because they are not good this season. I predicted it, as did ghettosermon, charm, and a couple other posters on here.

                            Duke deserves to be in the tournament, I won't deny that, but they don't deserve to get the seed that they will. And yes, reputation has something to do with rankings. Michigan State will get in based off their reputation, well not solely on that but it'll play a part even though they have a worse conference record then Iowa.

                            If Duke had the season as say Iowa did, bad non conference and a decent conference schedule, they'd be dancing, while Iowa most likely won't. Repuration does have something to do with rankings and seeding. If you don't believe this, then I pity you. There's always teams every year that gets into the tourney because of their names, or get seeded higher because of their name. It's just a part of College Basketball.

                            I mean what other school would be getting the press that Duke is getting this year with the average season they've had? Coach K just had an interview on SportsCenter yesterday and it seems like every College GameDay they have a story on Duke, or they have to talk about Duke.

                              It's kind of hard to perform when you have a different starting lineup every game and you don't have enough players to practice.

                              We're extemely fortunate to be 21-10. And as I said, our depth has really helped us this year to keep this thing afload, and Weber has done an amazing job in keeping these guys focused.

                              How did we perform poorly? We're 21-10, 9-7 in conference with what we've been through. We weren't ranked, so we had no expectations. I'd say it's been a damn good year for us and we'll be making some noise in the tourney if we can get in, which I think we will.

                              Just think if Duke had lost Paulus, McRoberts, Nelson, Scheyer, and McClure this season for a period of time. They wouldn't have near as good a record as they have right now.
