I'm not sure how Duke's recruiting has gone down the tubes so bad but at this point it's looking terrible for the Blue Devils next season, and really down the line.


They look absolutely terrible, I know!!!

I do wonder who their next coach is going to be once Coach K retires here. Brad Stevens would be perfect in that you go outside the "Duke Family" but still get a guy that's known for recruiting long-term prospects and building a team that's stylistically similar to how Duke was in their golden era.

Coach K's just lost that recruiting edge he used to have. Boozer and Battier types just aren't going there anymore, they're going to programs like Kansas and even some of the schools the next tier down (West Virginia, Marquette)

I thought that Stevens should have taken the Illinois job. Would have been a perfect fit.

I'm not convinced that Illinois is all that attractive of a job anymore. They don't really own Chicago like they used to with teams like Marquette, Michigan State, and even some non-regional teams taking some top talent from there. And in the Big Tenwelve you have to deal with Ohio State, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Purdue, and resurgent Michigan and Indiana teams. Hard to be any better then #6 or 7 in that conference right off the bat, not sure why Stevens would want to go to that kind of situation.

With Duke he prettymuch steps into a team that should be automatic as top 2 or 3 in the ACC, has more history and tradition, and typically has stronger recruiting ties although that's really gone downhill over the past few years. The last truly great Duke player that's been better then one and done is probably JJ Redick.

Duke screwed themselves by giving scolarships to Kelly and the Plumlees. To have 3 big men on scolarships in an offense that doesnt use them was a big mistake. I know you need a rebounding presence, but that could have easily been had with one or at max two. Plus I think the top recruits know that their offense is live or die by the three. The top power/small forwards really have no incentive to go there.

I think the Steelers have just set the bar for the ugliest throwback uniforms possible.

Once the regular season starts up, that'll be Rashard Mendenhall. The 34 on the jersey here though is in honor of when it was actually last worn by the Steelers - 1934.

Everyone hates a winner. Especially one that takes over all but 2-3 stadiums in the NFL. Steeler fans are by far the best fan base in the NFL along with GB.

I was just playing earlier today, actually. Have a test coming up tonight, so I am taking a break until later.

In other news, CJ Leslie is coming back.

Good news for an otherwise crummy day. Rainy and dark outside all day today. Loads of homework to do. Might not get to watch Flyers/Penguins...
