Duke Round-Up–Coach Cal Has a Big Mouth and No Rings

By June 16, 2011No Comments

Some musings and articles about and regarding our Blue Devils today…

1. Kyrie and why he left, it’s a little fun to play what ifs with Kyrie Irvings departure, fact is most of us think he was going to leave early no-matter-what.  Most Duke fans realized that he was most likely a one-and-done before he even announced he was attending Duke, clearly the media loves to play up that Duke fans are hurt, or distraught that he left, but as strong a recruiter as Coach K is, I don’t think Duke fans are too worried, talent will always matriculate to Duke…Nice try ESPN.

2. Once again Coach Calipari takes a shot at Duke, implying that there is some fear of Kentucky and that Duke is ducking them. Why would they? Coach Calipari has yet to win a Championship, Coach K will do what is best for Duke and I’m sure isn’t concerned with the mind games. This is the second time recently that Cal has attempted to bring Duke into his media game claiming that when KY lost to WVU they were looking forward to Duke and that was why they lost…yawn…really? If that is the case then blame yourself Cal, a good coach has his team focused.

As for ducking Kentucky, Duke plays top notch talent every year, teams that are more often than not better than Kentucky, no one fears you Cal, you haven’t done enough to warrant that fear, win a natty then maybe someone will fear you. Feels like Coach K is the older brother who is being hounded by the little brother who wants to make a name for himself. Pick that fight if you want to Cal, you probably won’t like how it ends.

As for, honestly, NO ONE FEARS KENTUCKY, no one, why would they?? What have you accomplished in this decade? Yes Cal can recruit, and get players to the league, but cant win the big one. And is very good at rule breaking, something KY fans never seem to want to talk about.
