One would think that any anti-Duke bias would stop or at least not insist upon itself when one takes a job as an analyst or when one's job is to write nationally about college basketball...boy was I wrong. It's been pretty interesting to watch takes on the Duke -UCF game - a game that was clearly an instant classic.
We all know that Duke hate sells, Duke hate gets clicks but to assert that the game last night was called in Dukes favor is ridiculously stupid. Be it Jeff Goodman, Rob Dauster, Seth Greenberg or whomever it's just not the case. I expect as much from the casual college basketball fan but isn't your job to be more than that?
There were plenty of calls that went Duke's way and plenty of calls that went the other way. We understand you need to sell your headlines but please don't cheapen a great game by being one of the many basketball conspiracy theorists - I would hope y'all are better than that - at least you should be.
If you only want to call out the bad officiating instances that sell your narrative and avoid the rest, then your bias is showing. Stop trying to sell a headline that you in fact know is complete and utter non-sense.
