Offensive tattoos would be a whole 'nother story, but if something (an event, person, quote, or whatever) is very important to someone, there is nothing wrong in expressing that.
Or maybe Austin did all that by himself, without any significant input from his teammates and coaches. (I'd add Miles' contributions, but that has apparently already been discounted by #1 above).
Count me as soimeone who thinks we'll perhaps be okay next year, and in many ways will run more like a traditional Duke team now that we are not trying to run everything through Austin.

There's an honesty problem on DBR, or at least on this thread.
As the mods are too flaky to control either the honesty or dishonesty of posters, I myself am going to do some investigating. Starting with me.
To quote Bob Dylan, "I'm home investigatin' myself. Hope I don't find out too much...... good God!"
[Btw, do any of the mods have day jobs? The honesty-problem, alone, is enough to keep all of them full-time busy.]
Thread relevance: I'm not exactly sure - to be perfectly honest - how Duke will fare next season. And seeing that Slackerb has just posted a new thread re Calvin's return, I can honestly say that's real news.
Next year is looking pretty bleak. Our sole incoming recruit is grossly overrated, nobody will improve at all (they'll actually regress), and half of our team will probably transfer. The good news is that it will leave us with plenty of scholarships, though we'll strike out on everyone we go after. We haven't signed a good player since Elton Brand.
Going forward I see no hope for Duke until we change out coaching staff. Fire Wojo and Collins, and, let's just be blunt here - K is way past his prime. Time to start looking for a replacement now, before Duke slides all the way into mediocrity. Quietly talk with Shaka Smart or one of the Miller brothers now, get it locked up before next season is done, and show K the door.
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."
