Looking at the geography, we're still the Harvard of the South. Well, now we're the Harvard/Princeton of the South.
We're also the only top 10 school located anywhere I'd want to live for four years. Except for Stanford. I could eat my way through the San Francisco area for four years. And Johnny D is improving the basketball. So maybe Stanford, despite my conservative tendencies, would be OK. (Yes, I saw Chicago, which is a wonderful city with great food, but the school year involves much of the winter months, and dear LORD it's cold up there November-March. The same basically applies to the Boston area schools). So Duke's still the only top 10 rated university that I'd want to go to...maybe excepting Stanford.

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."
