I CAN'T BELIEVE I BROKE THIS PROMISE TO MYSELF. MODS HELP ME REGAIN MY DIGNITY BY DELETING THIS POST. (Caps are for my own benefit.)
Quincy turned 16 today... he's young for a junior in high school. Happy birthday, Quincy!
let's not get too crazy thinking roy gets whoever he wants. off the top of my head i can think of a few he wanted bad and didn't get, for example
i'm sure there are others
Besides, would it be as fun if Matt Doherty was still getting big recruits? He did get a few you know very well - so you guys should understand that UNC is gonna get BIG TIME recruits no matter what. It's just the way it is. Honestly, if there's no UNC there's no Duke - it really does work that way. No one really remembers the blow-outs but the close games? Oh there's so many...
In the meantime, Mr. Miller has none of the baggage and most definitely appears to be excited about Duke. Let's sit back and enjoy the ride. The last year has been fabulous in my eyes and we scored 101 last night. This year is gonna be a good one to watch - for us and Quincy - just look at who he may get to play with.
In case anyone is interested, Travis McKie is the number 50 recruit for 2010. He plays for Boo Williams's AAU team which is the same club team for Andre Dawkins and UNC's 2011 commitment James McAdoo (they must have a hell of a team). Anyways, he wrote a comment on his Twitter about how Miller has more followers on Twitter than himself and said it was due to Duke fans. However, he intentionally used a very common misspelling that Duke haters like to use.
Here's Quincy's reply (looks he wrote it first thing in the morning so there are some typos, but you will get the idea):I am sure you can figure out the next word, but it's filtered out on this site.o yea and don't ever spell Duke wrong my man..we will best wake forest.
I won't take too much from it, but it sounds like he's a Duke fan to me
Out of curiousity, I looked at the Twitter exchange and noticed that McKie (who is quite a prolific Tweeter) sent an irritated tweet to Kendall Marshall, who apparently "unfollowed" McKie. McKie was recruited by UNC, but never got an offer. I guess once you're in the UNC family, everyone else gets kicked to curb.
Back to Miller... I noticed a tweet from Tuesday night that he recorded his first triple double (17pts, 20rebs, 12blks). Congrats to Quincy... that's a monster line. Too bad he had to be in Charlotte to play that night instead of watching Duke destroy Charlotte in Cameron.
In other news, while Googling his name to confirm that stat line (didn't turn up anything), I saw that his team lost to Christ School (Plumlee's alma mater) earlier this month. Quincy lead his team in scoring with 26, but I noticed that Marshall was not listed among Christ school's top 5 scorers.
hmmmm, in perusing Quincy's twitter page, he had a new "mantra" which looked alot like Kyrie Irving's H&H. (humble and honest).
He simply tweeted G&H and said later that it meant Greedy and Humble.
Just thought I'd add this piece of info.
Quincy's newest "tweet" says,
"Wow...NC vs Syracuse haha"
Which hopefully if I'm not over analyzing is a laugh at the Tar Heels..
After HB i really hated when people said we were the leaders, but this one seems like QM is saying it himself. So when is he going to commit?
