Grayon Allen is really a clown

Unbelievable. Clown intentionally trips a player, 3rd offense this season, and gets tossed from the game, and then has temper fit on the sidelines.

Poor baby.

Some think Coach K has lost it, putting up with this guy's antics for as long as he has.

I'm a Duke fan, and Grayson Allen is a pretty good player, but there is no excuse for his behavior.    To clarify, it's not the third time this season -- the other two incidents were last season.    To me, this one was more obviously intentional than the other two.    In any event, Coach K has suspended Allen indefinitely, and I support that move.

Thanks, sorry for the confusion, Lord knows, that I should not listen and believe everything the talking head on TV was saying.

The trip looked pretty fragrant,  and I am neither a Duke Fan nor Elon fan.

It should not be a surprise to be tossed out of the game for a fragrant foul, that royal temper fit, made him look like a stupid spoiled brat.

He needs to grow up and figure things out, IMO.

Yea, indefinitely.

Allen threw (and hit) a Carolina player with an elbow to the head last night, and was called for a technical.

Interesting read and from a good source, Jay Williams, somebody who knows a thing or two about Duke and finding himself in trouble.

What did Jay Williams do to get himself in trouble?

Right from the article:

 

"When I was at Duke, Coach K relentlessly reminded us that we could never hide from our actions. And he never let me forget that fact even when he was the first to visit me after my immature decision landed me in the hospital after a motorcycle accident, one that for all intents and purposes ended what I am confident would have been a solid, 15-year NBA career. His message was that taking accountability would set us free -- free to become the best possible human beings we could be."

I probably would have held him out for a minimum of 3.   But there is some NCAA precedent for 1 game.

Coach K said, since he was going out on leave, he wanted to clear that matter up, and wasn't fair for the assistant coach to decide when to bring him back.

I don't buy that.

The boy is a punk, and Coach K is willing to look the other way, because, he is a talented punk.

My respect for Coach K has fallen deeply.

I knew he was in an accident after he was in school.  I never really equated that with taking multiple cheap shots that could injure another player.  I thought that you had something a little more juicy like when Will Avery slapped coach K.

I agree, but the principal is still the same, you realize you done wrong and take accountability and that is something that the dude hasn't done.

There is no remorse and no accountability so far.

(ONE YEAR LATER)

 

This one was not quite as flagrant, but Allen once again finds himself in this kind of controversy.

The Tar Heels got 2 free throws, and possession of the ball.

    • Guys, I'm no moderator, but the interesting debate about McGregor, et al, has (IMHO) reached critical mass. 
    • Don't have anything on hand.  Not sure where to look or even if there is a trustworthy source for the information.  I'm mostly going be fallible memory of how hard guys threw and how, for the most part, left handed velocity is a couple ticks behind right handed velocity. As for your video, sure he looked good.  You chose a start in which he threw a shutout.  I remember DCab looking really good when he threw that one hitter against the Yankees. My point has been, this whole time, that you can't make it in the majors today with the K rate that McGregor had when he pitched. If you would like to show me guys have sustained success in today's game with a K rate under 4...
    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.
