defending champions shouldn't even make the NIT! non story. KENTUCKY winning the CIT, headline of the year.

by sucking you mean actually making the big dance? and by sucking you mean kentucky actually beat duke earlier in the year when kentucky was ranked 3rd in the nation?

Oookay, not sure what that comment has to do with Duke and Kentucky sucking balls, but I will say that this is shaping up to be a very unpredictable NCAA tourney. There are no true #1 seeds...its a crapshoot this year. My guess is a #5 seed wins it all.
 
2013-03-16 01:32:31 AM  
And is this going to effect where they rank for the big dance? Probably not.
 
2013-03-16 01:40:33 AM  
on that note, the terps played a great game on friday night. they stopped the players they needed to and i think every team in the big dance will perform the same task. in order for duke to make it into week 2 of the big dance they will have to play a different game as they did tonight. if thornton is chucking up 3's next game, they will lose.

When Maryland is in the ACC: there's no rivalry, they're nowhere near good enough to be a real rival. No one in the ACC cares about MD.

MD gets ready to leave the ACC: MD is disrespecting a classic rivalry and its a shame they don't care about the ACC.

It absolutely sucks that they're leaving.  But it's their own damn fault for letting their books swim in red ink.

It is amusing that despite all the hysteria over the SEC/Big 12 raiding the ACC for the popular targets like FSU, Clemson, and Va Tech, it's Maryland that ends up leaving.

Go Terps!!!!
They are going to win the ACC tourney and bubble their way into the NCAA tourney.

2013-03-16 04:27:24 AM  
Well, if there's anything to say about this years Terps, it's that they can beat Duke... every other team is a coin toss game though.
 
2013-03-16 06:02:20 AM  
Just 8 straight wins to go for the terps this year.
 
2013-03-16 07:04:29 AM  
Wow, some of you people are taking this thread way more seriously than you need to. As a Terps fan, Im thrilled they won. But I know, realistically, they have to beat UNC to even have a shot at the NCAA tourney.

For someone who's professing someone else doesn't give a shiat, you're taking this awfully hard.  It's almost like they got bounced out of the 2nd round of the NCAAs in their home state or something.  Oh wait, that would be 16 years ago today; my bad.

Honest question about the #1 seeds, not directed at anyone but... with as many teams that have come and gone from that top 5 this year, will we even notice if one gets robbed?

No.  It's not a rivalry.  Most ACC fans don't much care one way or the other.  Personally I'll enjoy not having to sit with opposing fans who throw things at me.

That has to feel good to Maryland after all the whining Coach K has done about them leaving.

The ref's have their work cut out for them if they are going to get Duke another title this year.

The Muthaship: The ref's have their work cut out for them if they are going to get Duke another title this year.


That is incredibly original.  Nobody in the history of forever has even once claimed that "the refs" help Duke out.  But now that I think about it, you're right.  Duke will need a lot of rest to compete in the NCAAs, so the refs last night made sure not to call most walks or charges on Maryland so the Duke players can get home two days early and chill.

There are Duke fans on Fark? How did this happen
 
2013-03-16 10:06:52 AM  
You know when I first heard Maryland was leaving the ACC I was shocked and saddened to be losing that history and the rivalries and being a charter member. But since then I've heard nothing but adolescent whining from the rest of the ACC and been reminded how every other year the tourney is essentially a home game for all the Carolina teams and now I'm really not as sad. Maryland has more in common with the schools from the Big Ten anyways and quite frankly I think I'd rather have to deal with fans from the rust belt and mid west than a bunch of over privileged, blue blood, elitest southerners.

Fark Duke, Go Maryland!

CS, B Time.

The baseball museum I work for is affiliated with one of the Hot Stove Banquets.  The board of directors know all the radio guys, so Bob Harris, Woody Durham, and Gary Hahn attend both the January banquet and the summer golf tournament.  I was talking to Bob the afternoon before the banquet (this was maybe two weeks into conference play) and he said that the team that won the ACC regular season was going to have four losses.  And if a bucket goes the other way in Raleigh, Boston, or Clemson, he would be 100% accurate.

TL, DR:  This was an incredibly competitive year in the conference with no real break-away-from-the-pack team.  Duke still has a good chance to get to the Final Four.  The only teams I'd cross off that list this morning are Virginia and Florida State; one looks lifeless out on the court, and the other is waiting for the call from the NIT.

Then tell coach K to quit whining.

Actually, is he retiring anytime soon? He's been whining a LOT this year. Is it old age and grumpiness or pouting because the team been so inconsistent?

Fark Duke, Go Maryland!


careful.  the fan bases of the B1G schools are larger and even more insufferable than the ACC schools.  Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska and, cringe, Penn State.  If you think Duke is bad, just wait.  But at least none of the B1G schools have the refs in their pocket like Duke does with basketball, though I thought the refs last night were pretty fair.  They weren't giving Duke the flops they normally get.

Good question.  He is 66, but he lives for coaching basketball.  The better question is who will replace him when he does go.

Maryland outplayed Duke wire-to-wire.  They handled their runs and didn't let go of the lead, they went strong inside, and caught Duke on a night where they weren't hitting shots.  Well played Maryland.

BUT

Do you know how I can tell you haven't been following much ball this year?  Most of the "whining" from Coach K has been lamenting the loss of an ACC charter member school.  While most other people in any way affiliated with the ACC has been of the "don't let the door hit you" mentality (myself included) K has been very outspoken about being against this realignment and in particular the loss of Maryland.

The only other complaining I can recall has been in regards to safety issues with storming the court.  You'd have to be blind and stupid not to realize that this particular tradition is a ticking time bomb that will end with a player or coach's emotions getting the best of him in a bad situation.  It might happen to Duke, Indiana, Kansas, or any other highly ranked team this year.  Or next.

/won't happen to Maryland, because no one storms the court after beating them

Because the thugball god demands blood eventually? Or is there some historical precedence for this foreboding prediction?
