Bunch of geezers in here. Who cares if a bunch of alcohol-fueled college students storm the court after a rivalry game.

The SEC cares, as it fines schools for rushing the court.

They haven't learned that they're better than everyone they play. Even when they aren't.

Kentucky is getting blown out by 30 points. Mercy, Cal's a good guy, but come on. Show some fight.

I was wary of Seth Greenberg being sacked but the new era isn't that much better

To be fair Johnson was rushed pretty fast to the coaching job

If they still struggle next year then it's a failed hire but now I give a pass

Give credit for Duke for playing hard and dominant at home but their struggles are on the road

- Lost to NC State on road
- Lost to Miami on road
- Lost to Maryland on road?

So, with a win over Clemson tomorrow night, The U should move up to #2 in the polls!

Meanwhile, I'm sure Coach K will handle this loss with the same class he always does......unlike that clown up in the Cuse!

Was it REALLY neccessary for him to attack Andy Katz at a presser for no reason? Its things like that that cause people like myself to dislike him. Everyone should look to Coach K as a model on how to conduct yourself as a coach.

The same Coach K that refuses to do halftime interviews and sends Chris Collins to do them instead?

This team is at best an Elite Eight team without a ready Ryan Kelly.

Pulling for Miami, Gonzaga and Butler if Duke can't do it.

After the game, Coach K mentioned, "If it really was a rivalry, they'd have stayed in the ACC." Part of what he is saying is right. It's mainly Maryland's fault that they left the conference. Maryland left for money reasons.

Duke has never thought of it as a rivalry, it's always been one-sided towards the Maryland side, in terms of rivalry perception. But that doesn't discredit what Coach K said. The Maryland rivalry has always been important to us Maryland residents. It's stupid that Maryland left and robbed the school of a thrilling series which will almost certainly end after next year. You can't tell me this team will move to the B1G and establish new rivalries. It won't have the same feeling that Maryland - Duke did.

In the end, Maryland is an ACC school. This is a school which had Lefty and Gary. Remember Lefty taking the ACC trophy and pinning it on his car, as he drove through North Carolina, honking his horn? That's the ACC spirit Maryland embodied for so long. That's what's going to go after next year.

It makes me so mad because I grew up with them in the ACC. Maybe it's just me refusing to modernize, or me stuck in the past. I grew up watching Maryland basketball. I grew up watching Steve Blake with the steal on Jason Williams in Cole Field House, I grew up watching Maryland win an ACC championship in overtime against Duke. I grew up watching Gary, I spent my fair share at the Comcast Center with courtside seats, I have always considered Maryland to be a secondary brother. I hold those memories of old Maryland teams close to my heart. And it hurts greatly to see Maryland move to the B1G. I just don't feel like it's an appropriate fit.

I don't know what would happen if Maryland would have stayed. There was a lot of talk that, due to ACC expansion, Maryland's "protected rival" (the team that they were guaranteed a game with every year) would be Pittsburgh?, and not Duke. There's no guarantee that the "rivalry" would have continued anyway. They still would have played, though.

So, Coach K may be hated by many, but he's right. He's totally right. And I don't even like the guy.

Iowa just wrecked Minnesota. I thought Minny was supposed to be good. Weren't they ranked in the top 10 this year?
