Drew? Somebody has taken over Fark!
2002-01-18 10:04:54 AM  
Gawd, I hope my photoshop link of Jason Williams gets posted (it'd be my first PS link)... just to make up for this one.

Why does everyone always say Duke sucks?
They seem to be pretty good to me.
Maryland must really, really suck then.

If you want to talk about sucking, you might
want to mention UNC.

Basketball hooligans, youse 'Mericans...
2002-01-18 10:33:55 AM  
...yeah, they suck, but let's not forget that UK took them to overtime and Jason Williams had to pull a career high scoring game out of his ass to win it for Duke...

...but then again, UK also lost to Western Kentucky...
2002-01-18 10:37:04 AM  
Wins and losses have little to do with Duke sucking. In fact they suck the most when they win it all.
2002-01-18 10:43:44 AM  
one of my fondest college basketball memories is of UCONN center Rod "lifetime 40% free throw shooter" Sellers smashing Christian Laettner's head repeatedly into the floor in the NCAA tournament about 10 years ago. That ruled.

Duke sucks, but Laettner and Bobby Hurley swallowed-- with GUSTO.

Poor little Bobby Hurley - not really up to the NBA talent level.

Goddammit. Just god-fudge-packing-dammit.

Go Big Blue!!! (Transplanted UK grad in Arizona)
2002-01-18 11:22:18 AM  
I got one posted, finally.

What do you people have against Duke, or are you all snobs who don't know good basketball when you see it?
2002-01-18 11:25:52 AM  
In Hurley's defense, his knee was ruined when he got hit by a drunk diver when he was leaving the stadium.

He is still a whiney SOB. Looked like he was gonna cry every time he got fouled.

Just be thankful Williams is gonna go pro next year and you won;t have to hear Vitale get a hard on over him all the time.

For a brief and shining moment, I thought I might be living right down the street from the number 1 college basketball program in the USA. As a longtime Baton Rougean during the Dale Brown years, I know all too well that you could live your whole life without seeing your home team even have a shot at the top of the polls. And here the Terps were ahead at the half, and it seemed just a matter of time until their size and strength ground Duke down to a nub. Then the second half came, and Maryland fell apart like an overcooked chicken.

I can't really explain what I saw last night. It's one thing to throw the ball away, but the Terps practically gift-wrapped it and paid extra to overnight it to Durham. They were supposed to beat Duke at the free throw line, but you can't get to the line if you can't get a shot off. Not that it would have helped. The Terps' free throws seemed drawn to the iron as if the ball were magnetized. Even the Duke fans who came to the arena drunk, half-naked, and painted blue were embarrassed, and that is saying something.

Dick Vitale joked that they should put him in, and it didn't seem like such a bad idea.

It seems to me that Maryland simply came unglued. They'll get it together and maybe have a chance to redeem themselves in the tourney.
2002-01-18 11:37:49 AM  
Duke-UMD rematch Feb. 17 at UMD. Be ready. Bet they won't come unglued like they did in the second half last night. That really was something to see. Piss poor.
2002-01-18 11:51:23 AM  
Drew: Did you sell Dick Vitale admin status? Duke SUCKS.

2002-01-18 11:58:20 AM  
Let the Gators at 'em. Gators should be #!.

Go Gators!
2002-01-18 12:06:50 PM  
I guess you all heard jason williams post-game comments: "To the failed abortions and pedophiles that warm the dripping bowels of Fark, SUCK IT! Hahahahahahahahhahahahahaha! Suck it, biatches. Duke won, so shut up yer jizz holes, you whining, shiat-eating, goat-scrogging, sad little boys. I'll be a millionaire next year, and you will be right here wasting your pathetic squeak of a life, pretending that someone gives a shiat."

I think that's what he said, but i might have heard wrong, on account that i was drunk. Duke sucks and all.
2002-01-18 12:08:07 PM  
I know I reiterate, but dook sucks!!!
2002-01-18 12:15:08 PM  
After weighing the evidence, and carefully considering all sides to the story, I have reached but one conclusion:
2002-01-18 12:18:44 PM  
why does it always look like the duke players are going to cry??? is it because they are used to sucking on there mommy's tits all though high school, but now that they are in college, their coach has replaced their mommies, and the stuff they get out of their new pacifier is sticky and salty?
2002-01-18 12:33:43 PM  
A couple of things:
How many times did Dick "I Suck Duke Dick" Vitale mention the players shooting free throws at midnight after the Fla. loss?

The announcers TOTALLY botched the conversation about fouls falling Dukes way no matter where they go.

Dunleavy is a whiny little biatch, as are all Duke players.

I hate Duke as much as I hate the Yankees

Finally: Ravens 17 Steelers 7

Mr. Shandy:

I agree.

Gators #!
UNC #@
Kentucky ##

Though I think it will be a long time before UNC sees #@. Or #! for that matter.
2002-01-18 12:43:06 PM  
maybe not this year, but UNC will be #1 again!!!
2002-01-18 01:04:50 PM  
maybe not this year, but UNC will be #1 again!!!

My Pirates will hit #1 before UNC makes it back in basketball. We'd BEAT THE fark OUT OF UNC if we played this year.

You wouldn't be able to handle...MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSA! They nations #1 shot blocker...and he's only a freshman! Dear God!

hahahaha... y'all are all just jealous :D

(proud to attend Duke)
2002-01-18 01:13:13 PM  
Yay Butt-Pirates! (ignore that)

OK OK, we all know, whether we like it or not, Duke is a good team. My problems with them is:

A. They win EVERY DAMN YEAR!!!!! It's boring. I hate them, the Yankees, the Braves, and that UCONN/Tenn thing in women's.

B. Why are they called 'blue' devils. A devil that's blue? Come on now. We all know they're really purple.

C. I'm an NC State fan. This is our comeback year (if not, Sendek will cease to live).
2002-01-18 01:35:07 PM  
Please, watching basketball in G-vegas is like going to a mediocre high school game.
2002-01-18 01:41:14 PM  
I not saying Duke isn't good, I'm just saying that they suck.
2002-01-18 01:46:56 PM  
OK...I'm a HUGE Terps fan, but last night they really played like shi[t]. Especially in the second half.

Here's the break down:

They were 29 of 63(Dixon was 2-9 and only scored 10, Baxter was 8-14) in FG's.

18 of 29 in FT's(Baxter was 8-15).

They commited 21 turnovers, and only got 5 steals to Duke's 14.

They could not contain Jason Williams(who I *can't stand*), and he scored 34.

I really thought that the Terps were going to go down to Duram and kick some Blue Devil ass, but they were COMPLETELY outplayed in every aspect of the game. However, we will see them again at least more time this season, which will be at Cole Fieldhouse.

Bigman51: Most UK fans hate Duke with a passion, but nevermoreso than during a fateful game about 5-6 years ago...many call it the greatest college basketball game ever (not my words)...ask a UK fan about it sometime (Fark being based in Lexington, I don't think you'll have to hunt far).

Simply put, a punk Duke player named Christian "I get it up the hiney from Vitale" Laettner stomped on the chest of UK player Aminu Timberlake after he fell down...the cameras caught it, the fans saw it...the only people who didn't were the refs. It would have been Christian "Oooh...a little deeper Mr. Vitale" Laettner's last foul...he should not have been in the game...but he was, and thus was able to make the last-second shot that let Duke win by a point. UK fans still speak of "the game" with bitterness on their tongues. We hate Duke...we really hate Christian "I'm ready for my close-up, Mr Vitale" Laettner...

They're a great team, and Kryskkrueiaokasknasierw's a great coach...but that doesn't mean we have to like them.

Go Big Blue!!!

How many times did Dick "I Suck Duke Dick" Vitale mention the players shooting free throws at midnight after the Fla. loss?

I heard that. That is such an obvious gimmick to get a little attention and give Dickie V something to talk about. Why is shooting free throws at midnight after the game the proper thing to do?

Why not put the loss out of your mind for that night, and come back hard the next day and spend a couple extra hours before or after practice to shoot extra free throws. Attention-getting ploy. That said, Duke is about unstoppable when they put their minds to it. Still, my Jayhawks will have the last word (please God let them this year, please).

Hey Torchsong, wasn't that game about ten years ago?

2002-01-18 03:02:59 PM  
Christian Laettner lived in my hometown. Kirk Cameron also lives in the neighborhood behind mine.

And to the delusional UNC fans... if UB could come that close to beating you then y'all obviously have a quite a while to wait before the return of any such dominance...
2002-01-18 04:33:31 PM  
The cats are coming back this year. This team has so much talent that they haven't forged as a team yet but it's happening.
January 29th will be one of the best games all year. UK's going to the swamp to stop some gators.

oh yeah.
2002-01-18 05:01:16 PM  
Phillibuck, I believe it was the 95 season, because the we took the title the next season, then lost to AZ, then won again in 98, so it must have been the 95 tourney. Still, to UK fans, it may as well have been yesterday. ;)

I remember watching it with a couple of my fellow UK alumni, and a couple friends who didn't care much about basketball (a sin in KY) but watched it the end of the game even those two guys were screaming at the refs and cheering the cats on. Even though we lost, it really was a hell of a game...kinda like the World Series was this year...
