Dooooook Loooooses

Recommended Posts

Not a shocker really, Dook isn't that good this year, and Va. Tech had all 5 returning starters from that team that lost the heartbreaker last year.

VT is the new MD in that they play Duke tough...Some point, maybe the Tarheels will be able to do the same thing. :D

I wish i had seen the game but it is always bad when you lose at home. Judging by the score, Duke's defense was not as good as it has been this year and they missed too many FT's.

Oh well, just the first game...Only second loss all year for the team playing the nations toughest schedule. I will take that.

Virginia Tech almost lost this game- they played real clumsy at the end of regulation and overtime. But Duke lost anyway and that is all that matters!!

The nation's toughest schedule my you know what!!! It's not that tough when you refuse to play road games.

And by the way, we've got a one game winning streak in the rivalry. ;)

Dook's problem was turn-overs. Paulus just is not that good a point guard IMO and is the main problem. Other than that, they look like a decent team that will probably be seeded #2 or 3 in the ACC Tournament.

How about that Greg Paulus?

18 min, 0-3 from the field, no FT, 1 Offensive Rebound, 1 assist, 2 personal fouls and got his sh!t thrown on the last play of the game.

Not to rehash old threads....but

I TOLD YOU SO!

This guy is AWWWWFFFFUUUUUULLLLL.

If he wasn't a big name recruit fans would be chanting for him to come in during the final seconds of a blowout.

Coach K is going to kill Duke's season if he doesn't get this bum off the floor.

When i was watching the game the other day, the announcers said they had statisically the hardest schedule in the nation.

I didn't see the game..Those numbers are no good..Wonder why he only played 18 minutes.

However, anyone who has watched him lately has seen that he is getting back into playing shape and has played much better than early on.

He had a real good game against Gonzaga.

Other than that he's played against garbage ass teams.

He only played 18 min. cuz Coach K benched his ass.

Seth, to be fair, it's not as though the Heels have been playing any road games so far either.

But a loss is a loss. And a dook loss is always a thing of beauty. I'll gladly celebrate this.

As for Paulus, I just hope his brother turns out to be a better football recruit (he'll be a freshman QB at UNC next season) than he has turned out as a basketball recruit.

They're 8th currently, of course as I mentioned earlier, K plays NO ROAD GAMES before conference play. He won't do it. It doesnt matter, they're down this year, a sweet 16 team at best.

They are a sweet 16 team and will be a top 2 or 3 seed..Same thing i said last year when everyone jumped on me.

Their defense, much like UCLA last year, will have to carry them.

They need Paulus to play better and they need one of the freshman to become a consistent scorer.

McRoberts and Nelson will both be on the first or second team ALL ACC, so they need the secondary players to do something.

Ok, first of all, NO BIG NAME TEAM plays mid majors in their building. It just doesn't happen. Do you think you are going to see UNC go into Wichita St? Please.

Secondly, Duke is such a huge draw that alot of the schools want to play them in bigger arenas to get more money.

They happened to be home this year instead of going on the road to Ind, GTOwn and Temple...They were at their places last year. Just worked out that way.

    • Right, but unilateral rules for the way the game is played on the field, with the exception of the DH.  
    • Why the hell was he not strong the last few years?  
    • Yes - different rules for different parks...
    • If you just scout the traditional stat line, it's pretty easy to see why you might drop Hall from the list. You could look at the 6.02 BB/9 and say that he doesn't have the command and that he's destined to be a reliever, but it was reported that Holt told Hall and Akin to throw a lot more breaking balls in fastball counts. I would bet on an athletic pitcher like Hall tightening his command every day of the week. Besides if you look closer at his stats, there's a much more positive picture to be seen. His K/9 increased from 9.54 to 12.94, HR/9 decreased from 0.57 to 0.33, and average against dropped from .198 to .185. His FIP actually decreased from 3.67 to 3.22, so ultimately his stuff got even better this year and better hitters actually got worse at hitting him. I would really take this list with a grain of salt, BP really does not have the same reputation that it used to have.
    • A little to my surprise, the Rangers, their new stadium, and their stated desire to get more right-handed have missed Ozuna, Castellanos and now Starling Marte. Their player development staff may have a high appraisal of Ronald Guzman, who to some systems sits rather conspicuously as one of the worst regulars anywhere, never mind on aspiring contenders.  There's still Arenado/Bryant (though ATL figures to be fiercer for one, and they may not both be traded). I don't think Mancini alone gets to Jung/Solak on the back half of Top 100 lists, but could Givens with him? Sherten Apostel is perhaps overqualified to be his org's second best 3B prospect, and they've also buried Kolby Allard under some solid veteran SP's.
    • Thanks.  I’ll be here paying attention for you.  Sarasota’s especially nice during Feb/March.  You could have met fellow Baman’s mom and dad Henderson last year they were down for a couple weeks watching Gunnar.  Some guy got a ball signed by his whole family.  
    • He's been letting the ball travel really well.  All the way to the catcher's glove.
