They used Joe Theisman's figure for the statue..but they couldn't name it the "Theisman" trophy so they just took off the "T"

How long before "replica" trophies appear on ebay offering your name inscribed?

Duke crushed Texas yesterday while Kentucky got smoked. Enough with the Duke sucks cliche ya farking morons.
 
2005-12-11 03:01:04 PM  
I was about to say, with what happened against Indiana, looks like Kentucky sucks worse.
 
2005-12-11 03:04:08 PM  
Duke rocks.
 
2005-12-11 03:04:25 PM  
I'd have thought that with that shalacking of Texas yesterday that that cliche would be given a rest for a while. I thought wrong.
 
2005-12-11 03:08:31 PM  
I'm pretty sure Kentucky got rocked yesterday and Duke blewout the supposed #2 team in the country so....
UK Sucks.
 
2005-12-11 03:12:45 PM  
doesn't matter what their record is...duke does, in fact, suck. and it need not be funny cuz it's true.
 
2005-12-11 03:19:59 PM  
Heh, I come into these threads purely to see the whiny Duke Sucks cliche haters.

Go play somewhere else if you aren't happy. Duke sucks.
 
2005-12-11 03:20:35 PM  
What about the one they used on Hendrix's... thing?
 
2005-12-11 03:20:54 PM  
IF SUBMISSION.HEADLINE="DUKE SUCKS"
THEN GREENLIGHT

dorks
 
2005-12-11 03:23:58 PM  
Here come the whiny Duke Sucks cliche defenders who are too unoriginal to get anything greenlighted without it or who have decided that because Drew doesn't like Duke they should follow suit.
 
2005-12-11 03:28:54 PM  
Your dog wants fewer Duke sucks headlines, they'd cliched.

TownDrunk: I have no greenlights, but will NEVER resort to "duke sucks".

/most wornout cliche



That is one cliche I will always love. Not because I hate Duke, but because I'm constantly annoyed by people who have undying loyalty for schools they never attended. I have friends who LOVE Duke, even though they probably don't even know what state it's in. The "Duke Sucks" cliche drives them up a wall, so I say let it LIVE FOREVER.

It's hilarious how many people hate this cliche, and simply assume that every time it makes it to Fark, it was written by the article poster. I'll note that one article I've posted was written without the cliche, and it was added by an admin when it made it to the main Fark page.

The cliche is tired, yes... but I actually believe that Duke sucks. This cliche makes up for all the time I hear about how great Duke is on TV... god, you'd think for a team that is so great, they'd have more than one national championship in the past decade.
 
2005-12-11 03:39:59 PM  
I was thinking either cheese or chocolate Heismans myself.
 
2005-12-11 03:47:24 PM  
I work for Duke, so I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies.

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.
But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you don't know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around. If you don't know about the topic....Don't make yourself sound like you do. Because some farkers will believe anything they hear.

////"SubmitterSucks"

How about this cliche: The most complaints about greenlit articles seen to come from those who have never had one of their own submissions approved

/Lawyers suck

Cliche war on fark. Still no cure for cancer.

I actually met Frank Eliscu once, about maybe 14 years ago, I think. Very nice guy. Excellent sculptor. He had some great works in his workshop he had done that were better than the Heisman.
 
2005-12-11 04:49:08 PM  
Can't wait to see OJ's on ebay.
 
2005-12-11 05:14:02 PM  
Duke only sucks if you're a fan of a team that can't beat unranked teams, much less the #2 team in the country.
 
2005-12-11 05:33:19 PM  

"Duke sucks!"
 
2005-12-11 05:35:56 PM  
Anyone else think of the 'plaster caster' from that one song? I think those casts would be slightly more valuable, specially the Hendrix.
 
2005-12-11 05:46:06 PM  
From the article: "The identity of the buyer was not immediately make public".

I wouldn't be surprised if the buyer was a Chinaman. The Chinese don't make anything that somebody else has not already made and they copy it. Look for Heisman Trophy knockoffs at you nearest flea market soon.
 
2005-12-11 05:52:40 PM  
I resent the term, "Duke Sucks" ! I think John "Duke" Wayne mad a lot of good movies. Or are you referring to the David Duke University Blue Devils ?

/ does not have a Duke fetish,..
 
2005-12-11 06:57:54 PM  
I used to enjoy this place. STFU about Duke already, its old and stupid.

 
2005-12-11 07:52:45 PM  
Duke obviously doesn't suck! Duke is great, but Carolina is better.
 
2005-12-11 08:10:34 PM  
If Duke sucks, and Kentucky has nowhere near the talent (or teeth) that Duke has, what does that say about Kentucky?
 
2005-12-11 09:52:26 PM  
The cast will now be used to create counterfeit Heisman Trophies to sell on Ebay.
 
2005-12-12 12:23:09 AM  
There should be a word for these "Duke sucks" threads, similar to Godwin, where the first person to say "that's not funny" loses and the thread ends...and then gets teabagged.

/the person gets teabagged, not the thread...
//teabagging a thread....hmmm
 
2005-12-12 03:35:30 AM  
I'm constantly annoyed by people who have undying loyalty for schools they never attended.
I'm sorry I can't annoy you then. I'd really love to annoy you.
/Duke is awesome
//butterbeangirl, wtf? Carolina, Go To Hell!
