Anybody But Duke

Good article.

That being said, as a longtime Duke hater (not a since the mid 90s bandwagon hater), I do admit that THIS particular TEAM (not coaches) isn't as hateable as past teams. The reason for me is simple, Nolan Smith. He's a good player with a tragic backstory. The fact that he was a Bullets ballboy helps as well. Smith joins Johnny Dawkins, Tommy Amaker, and Grant Hill as Duke players who actually enjoy watching play.

Scheyer isn't nearly as annoying as HurleyLaettnerCollinsWojoRedickPaulus was, and clearly he's worked hard to improve his game.

I'll still root for West Virginia of course, but if this Duke team wins, I'll only throw up in my mouth a little.

You can fix it all you want..Everyone's jealousy of that GREAT program is amusing to me.

It's ok. We know that you are in the tank for Duke beyond any measure you've declared anyone in the tank for the Orioles. You can feel free to sit there with your hands covering your ears while others discuss the truth.

The truth is that so many fans of other teams strive to make the tourney, while Duke fans strive to win titles....and not NIT titles.

People hate them because they can't be as good as them and can't stand them winning.

That's why its funny.

But that's ok...The Terps did make the tourney this year, so that's cool. :clap3:

Yet, not nearly as many people hate UNC, Kansas, UCLA, Kentucky, Michigan St, etc.

So it's obviously far from just being about jealousy. But carry on acting like that's all it is while putting other fans down.

All those other schools aren't on TV as much..Shoved down your throats as much, etc....And I will continue to do just that, thanks...No need to give me your permission but thanks anyway!

UNC isn't on TV as much? I'd say it's about the same normally.

And I knew you would, and that type of attitude by Duke fans is even more reason to dislike Duke. Of course I'm not saying all Duke fans are like that, but the article makes a good case of why Duke fans should increase the level of dislike for Duke itself.

I am completely torn by this thread. Nothing more to add.

    • Mountcastle, despite the vitriol thrown at him from some folks in the game threads, leads Vladdy in rWAR, fWAR, and OPS+.
    • Again, the rough sex myth. The only person out there having sex like that is Ted Bundy. Bauer is out there seemingly choking every woman he encounters out. He’s a sick hombre. He felt bullied in high school, then at UCLA, so now he’s bullying these women and choking them out.  It’s not Normal.  https://meaww.com/ted-bundys-ex-sandy-details-how-serial-killer-tried-to-drown-her-and-choked-her-during-sex Educate yourself on Ted Bundy aka Trevor Bauer. The fanboys that root for a man that wants to take advantage of someone weaker is pathetic. 
    • Here’s a quote from an article today by MLBTradderumors’ Anthony Franco “The past few days haven’t been good for teams looking to acquire controllable starting pitching. On Friday, Angels southpaw Patrick Sandovalcame out of his start shaking his arm. The Halos put him on the 15-day injured list the next day with an elbow strain. One day later, the Marlins announced that Jesús Luzardo was being shut down with a lumbar stress reaction in his back. Miami almost immediately put him on the 60-day injured list — ruling him out into August.”   It seems that the pitching pool has shrunk even more. So here’s a thought: how about bludgeoning our opponents instead of pitching them? Just accept that our pitching going forward is going to be fraught with walks and long, sometimes very long fly balls, and insure that we give back much better than we get? There’s no doubt that some teams have better pitching, but nobody has better offense. So, instead of paying ever higher prices for pitching that won’t necessarily be worth the price or adequate to fill the need, let’s just admit the problem and solve it with a potent offense? That would require sit downs for Mullins, Cowser, and Hays, but they should be fairly easy to replace? What sayeth the crowd?
    • I think the Blue Jay fans are shutting down.
    • Voted all Orioles. I would rather vote for Hays over Judge.
    • There are multiple starter targets that make sense to me, to varying degrees, if their teams would be agreeable to dealing them. Tarik Skubal (27) from the Tigers, with 2.5 years of control.  Cal Quantrill (29) of the Rockies, with 1.5 years of control.   Jack Flaherty (28) of the Tigers, who is a FA after the season. Erick Fedde (31) of the White Sox, who has 1.5 years remaining on his 2/$15m contract. Tyler Anderson (34) of the Angels, who has 1.5 years remaining on his 3/$39m contract. As I detailed earlier, I would not prefer we seek to trade for Crochet at this time, nor Soriano from the Mets.  JP Sears is someone that's pitched poorly this season, so I think I'd not look his way either. The closer we get to the deadline, more teams will sell, adding more starters to this short list.
