We ordered the Mich weather (cold, rain, and overall nasty) so he could be reminded of home sweet home. Maybe we just need a famous big to recruit frontcourt players. Too logical to work? I know MJ never tries to help the heels recruit. Right?
TP is getting to see a heck of a football game. Wally Wade may not be able to match the intensity or crowds of The Big House, but we are putting on a pretty good show so far!

Don't ask me why, but my mother is making me Tweet. Says it will be good for my career. So, follow my ramblings, mostly on the film industry, @TVFilmTalk
Any TP sightings from this weekend? Any indicators of his "having a good time?" What's the scoop from y'all in the know???

It couldn't hurt our chances when you have Nolan in TP's ear over the weekend. Hopefully Parker realizes that Duke had a great opportunity for him.

Not to mention before the game when Doc Rivers and Dell Curry called him over and were putting in a good word with him about Duke.That sounds like a very good group of players/ex-players to visit with from a "selling Duke basketball" perspective.
He got plenty of attention from the crazies during the game, too. Seems like a solid visit.
In addition to the above comments, he received at least two chants of "To-ny Par-ker come to Duke" and both he and his family were attended to very nicely by Coach Badass and all the parents of current players who shook their hands or patted their shoulders as they returned to their seats after being introduced at halftime.
The Parkers did not suffer from a lack of attention.
Rosco Allen popped for Johnny Dawkins at Stanford this AM.
Former UNC target is a 6'9" versatile Kyle Singler type player.
Dawkins building a nice team and doing work at Stanford.
So from what I understand just browsing through this thread...We should have a decision from Tony Parker soon based on his quote from a week ago saying he would decide shortly after his visit to Duke. And I believe Mitch is supposed to decide Tuesday or Wednesday? Can anyone confirm?
Coach D needs at least an NIT bid this year, or we may start to hear the word hot-seat thrown around. An NCAA tourney bid is not out of reach, though I think it'll be tough. A good conference showing is a must as well, as the Pac-12 is decent but not great this year.
He's brought in some nice pieces over the last couple years, and continues to do so for next year, so let's hope this is the start of a good run for the Cardinal.
