    Myths and predictions proven wrong

    1. If the Big 3 of Scheyer, Singler, and Smith play 35-38 minutes a game, we'll run out of gas late in the season

    2. Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek will never be meaningful contributors

    3. Coach K's responsibilities with the USA Olympic team are detracting from his performance as Duke coach

    Others?

    West Virginia should have been a #1 seed over Duke.

    We aren't "athletic" enough to take on Big East teams in the tournament and are only ranked high because of a weak ACC schedule.

    Wow I'm was so tired of hearing this. HA!

    4. Coach K couldn't win another title

    5. Duke relies on 3 pointers and will lose out in the tourney if they have a cold shooting night

    6. Duke has no inside presence. Just a jumpshooting team...

    7. Duke does not have a PG. Scheyer is ok but much too slow to play the point effectively...

    How about.....
    Coach K can't develop big men.

    There's no one there to coach bigs.

    Duke can't recruit big men.

    The delay game will kill us.

    The game has passed Coach K by, and Duke will never catch up to Roy and UNC, who are recruiting circles around Duke.

    (all season) Duke's just not a Final Four team

    Tournament Specific:
    Duke's going to lose to Louisville/Cal

    Duke's going to lose to Purdue

    Duke's going to lose to Baylor

    (generic pre-tournament) Duke's going to flame out in the second weekend

    Duke's going to lose to West Virginia

    Baylor has no chance against Duke
    Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."

    10. Doug Gottlieb has anything of value to say about college basketball.

    This team won't survive the loss of Gerald Henderson and Elliot Williams

    How can a 5'11" man coach big men? No way, no way, no way....

    We only play well at home; we're not good on the road

    It's apparently the uniforms. The team didn't lose this year in the white uniforms.

    Even though they lost a lot from their title team, the Tarheels have such good talent and coaching that they'll contend for the ACC championship.

    In order to return to the Final Four, Duke will need to recruit John Wall.

    Predictions

    Not enough talent in the paint and not enough depth in the back court to go very deep in the tournament this year. I love me some Z.
