This is insane how duke is not goin to play in raleigh
Won't miss playing in Charlotte though . .
They have to put Georgetown in Raleigh because they can't play in DC. We'll be in DC. Not what we wanted, but not bad at all.
and maybe a change of scenery does us good.
What would be a greater injustice, us not playing in Raleigh, or us not getting a #2 seed? b/c with wisconsin as a 3, it looks like we'll be getting the latter. If I had a choice of one, I'd rather take the latter.
With UCLA as the 1 seed
Place Duke here. Ug.
Potential matchup with UCONN makes this not so bad. Duke gets either Arizona or West Virginia in the round of 32. Duke better lace them up next week.

Maybe working towards a potential match-up with Kevin Love is just what Singler needs to get him going again!
I want UCLA.
Who is their backup point guard? Who is their backup shooting guard?
I'm more scared of Arizona than WVU...Jerryd Bayless is sick
A 2 Seed!!!!!!!
I don't know much about WV or Arizona, but they make me nervous.
Who else is pulling for San Diego over the UConnVicts?
Any thoughts Washington rather than Raleigh might not be so bad (unless you had tickets to Raleigh) given how the UNC fans hung around to cheer against Duke in the pod games (in Charlotte?) several years ago?
Well, it could have been a lot worse.
WVU is a tough appointment. The X-Men concern me a lot more.
There's a shock: Seth doesn't think Duke deserves its seed.
