It isnt like Clemson is some shiatty bottom of the conference team, they are the #10 team in the nation. But yes they did beat the shiat out of Duke tonight.

no greens were given when UNC got beat by BC in the dean dome, nope, or when wake beat carolina, or when the dookies handed maryland a 41 point loss. who then lost at UNC by 17. nope. not even when UNC beat clemson by 24, or when when miami beat wake by 27 last night.

nope no bias here. nada.

Usually, the intarweb memes get less funny. They get tiresome if repeated too often.

On occasion, someone helps to make the meme more funny.

It's not the loss that was surprising (Duke was only favored by 4 I believe). Duke struggled with the press throughout the first half (surprising for a Duke team) and even had trouble against Clemson's half court defense (not Clemson's strong suit). Both Singler and Scheyer both were not in their element. Lance Thomas actually showed a pulse, but he couldn't contain Booker.

That's the worst performance I've seen in a while from a Duke team, and I watch quite a bit of Duke basketball.

What_Would_Jimi_Do: nope no bias here. nada.


Has Fark ever claimed that they didn't have a bias against Duke?

Im usually wrong about these things but I really don't see an ACC team making it to the Final Four cause its too much inconsistency. Not because the league is tough cause even then a solid team usually rises to the top and stays there.

So when your filing out your brackets put at least one ACC team in the Final Four.

//Same thing can be said about the Big East too.
//Didn't Wake Forest lose to Miami last night too?
//Drew is a Kentucky Wildcat fan so Duke will always suck.

I don't know if you caught the game, but I don't think he moved during the entire second half. LONG ride home last night. At the same time, if I'm Carolina, I'm not sure that I want bitter, pissy Coach K for a full week before a road game at Cameron.

Heels can't play defense right now, Duke can't score. Something has got to give.

What's amusing is that the Duke game wasn't even the biggest upset blowout of the night, or even in the ACC. Well, it's amusing if you're not Wake.

That's two in a row over Duke!

I was at the game last night, expecting Clemson to typically roll over when faced with a quality opponent, as is it's M.O. in football as well as basketball. Especially when people are giving them a chance (#1 rule of college football betting --- NEVER bet on Clemson to win when they're favored).

What I saw was a team that could have beaten any team in the nation at least on that home court. Singler was ineffective the whole game, I think finished with 2 points, while his counterpart for Clemson, Booker (who should be in the running for ACC POTY) was dunking and rebounding and blocking all over Duke's business. The only player from Duke who looked remotely ready to play was Gerald Henderson.

Paulus really surprised me with how ineffective he was --- I'm a big Duke hater, and as a result tend to avoid watching their games unless they'e playing someone I care about (Davidson, Clemson, UNC), but I'd always been under the impression that he was Steve Wojiechaeraldsfhwoski lite. He must have had 7 or 8 turnovers on his own, and looked totally overwhelmed when Clemson pressed.

Also, the dunks that Booker and Grant put on Duke throughout the game were some of the most spectacular ones I've ever seen in person, and Oglesby is absolutely fearless and cold-blooded when he shoots. The only negative for them to the game was that their starting point guard was relatively ineffective, but he didn't need to be. If Clemson can play like that for the rest of the season, they're going to be an incredibly tough out for anybody in the ACC as well as the NCAA.

I have a feeling, if the brackets are made up in a way that it is possible, it will be an all Big East/ACC final four. The top teams in the Big East are dominant and the ACC crushes in their OC games.

Yeah I was going to say this. Clemson isn't that bad of a team and are, for once, continuing to play well as the season went on. But while I had a feeling they could beat Duke (as did Vegas as they only picked Duke by 4), I didn't really think they'd just crush them like that. Good gravy twelve steals and held Duke to just over 30% shooting? That's ridiculous.

Still the real ACC shocker was Wake Forest getting just as badly trounced by Miami. Still not a completely awful team, but Wake should have handled them easily.

Wake is very young. They're bound to have a game like that.

And holy crap, the Duke game was the 2nd worst loss behind that UNLV beat down in the tournament in 1990.

True, they're young, but they really should have bounced back after that loss to Ga. Tech. Can't have but so many games like that. But then I probably shouldn't be too surprised, I've considered them a bit of a paper tiger since they only beat Carolina and Duke by a total of five points after letting decent leads slip away. I knew they were going to have a bad game or two, but not to these teams and not in this part of the season.

Someone mentioned UNC-Charlotte in this thread.

/someone knows we have a school?

2009-02-05 9:59:56 AM  
Wake will be a Final Four team or a second round exit. I'll have to make my decision when it's time. Duke also blows dick. Aside from Henderson, who i must say is quite a ball player, they just are not good at playing basketball. it's just a stream of unathleticism from Zoubek to Scheyer to Paulus. Coach K is gonna have to start recruiting more players like Henderson if he wants to start winning championships. Hopefully he doesn't start to learn this lesson, because i'm a Heels fan, and i wouldn't want them to be able to compete with UNC talent wise. Fark Duke pieces of shiat. That loss to Clemson is just a sign of things to come.

The best part of the game was when Oglesby clanged that wide-open dunk and Oliver Purnell just shook his head...Only bright light to an otherwise horrid performance by Duke. Kudos to Clemson for bringing the pressure all.damn.night.

Nothing went right for Duke, and everything went right for Clemson. It happens.

I just wish there was a Cameron rematch. Oh well.

Maybe it was the chest stomp Laettner put on one of the Kentucky players earlier in that game that really has them pissed.
