Default Re: OT: Coach K

Duke is still way over .500, has a top 20 RPI[17th] and the THIRD toughest schedule in the NATION. To say Coach K needs to be blamed for a horrible season is ridicilous because if this is a horrible season for coach K, what does it say about every other coach in the Nation that doesn't get to 22-10 or better?

every other coach in the nation doesnt have 10 high school Americans on their team.

Are you kidding me? Duke doesnt have Durant/Oden, they dont have Conley/DJ Augstine....come on dude. Thier freshman are Henderson Jr and Jon friggin Scheyer. Please stack them up vs the other freshman across the country. Duke usually has atleast 1 impact freshman/diaper dandy. Not this time. Lets look at the sophmores...Greg Paulus? He's a damn football player who can play basketball. Should have went to Notre Dame to play football. Check his assist to turnover ratio. It sucks! How can Coach K correct something that is Greg's damn fault? Face it dude was overrated as a high school prospect bigtime. Freshman season misled folks thinkin he was gonna be another special Duke PG. Not me.

David McClure? Guy's a stiff. Why is he starting as a Duke Blue Devil? Pfft

The two stars of Duke if you can even call them that are Nelson and McRoberts another sophmore who hasnt emerged like past Duke stars have. He was supposed to be the marquee talent leading this Duke team. Guy is like a icecream sammich. You bite the front and all the icecream goes out the backside. Nelson is ok but he like McRoberts just arent the typical Duke star players they normally have. Where are the Carlos Boozers? Elton Brands? Luol Dengs? Trajan Langdons?

You and I know Duke teams were stacked with a nice 6-7. You had your overrated HS All Americans no doubt but the team still had legit players. Guys who threatened to make the leap to th NBA as first round picks, lottery picks. Who on this team has that? McRoberts?

Coach K is 22-10 dude. Not much room for criticizm if you followed the team. You think after my semi roast the talent on the roster this team had a crappy record. 22-10. In one of the toughest divisions in the nation. Eh

If next season Coach K has a worst record...then your topic should be cool. Not now bro.

I actually think this is one Coach K's better jobs.

Paulus isn't as great as he was touted to be, but he's gotten a lot better as the season went on. He still takes bad shots and gets blocked more than a midget in a 6 foot and over league, but he's been playing better control.

McRoberts went from a timid stiff to a big time player yesterday. If he stays for next season, they'll be a good team. He definitely has impressed me. Demarcus Nelson is a veteren senior, but is no star. He's a nice player and a good role player in a Jawad Williams, Jackie Nelson in 2005 type, but shouldn't have been asked to take a scoring load.

Scheyer developed very nicely as well.

The ACC is tough this year. They could send potentially 7 to 8 teams to the tourney. Can't fault him for having a bad run as of late.

Oh by the way Youngrease, the announcer you are referring to is a huge Dukie. He'll say that Greg Paulus is better than Steve Nash if Paulus made a jumpshot. Don't take credit to that tandem with Dukie V.

The Greek coach kicked Coach K's ass in the World Championships. How can an all-time great college coach not know how to deal with a pick-and-roll? And why the full court press when most of the top teams had professional calibre guards that can easily deal with it?

He did a piss poor job of coaching this summer. But he is a great college coach.(most of whom I really don't think much of compared to their high level pro counterparts)

And Duke is obviously rebuilding. They've decided that they'll be going for 3/4 year guys instead of the Durant's of the world who will be gone after 1 year. UConn is doing the same right now, and they're not even in the tourney. They'll be fine for the future.

I read the thread and I'm not understanding why you felt it would help your case. All but one person agreed Paulus is just not that good.
