    Well, you guys are getting what you want -- "Big Man" coach

    Here's a dose of news that will probably satisfy the masses -- Duke is going to hire one of the hottest young "big man" coaches around. The plan is for him to replace either Collins or Wojo, should one take a head coaching job this summer. If not, he'll take Chris Spatola's graduate assistant job, with Spatola moving on to another role. You can see some of his more innovative drills here -- this can only mean good things for Zoubek's development.

    Ha. Anything/person that can teach Zoubek to move his feet like that is welcome.

    Great News

    A change in perspective / technique is definitely in order. All the assistant coaches played guard. Where has our strength been? Guard. How many of our players can play the guard position? - a lot. How many effective bangers do we have/ If a big man coach is indeed on the way, perhaps the coaching meetings will be infused with discussions of some Brand, Boozer, Williams type additions. Tired big men still play big. Once here, the problem still remains: either a lack of PT or play 'em till they drop.

    My heart almost dropped AGAIN! For the second time in under 24 hours. When I initially read that my guy, Chris Collins, could be gone and just simply "replaced"... Whew!!!!! I love his passion and love for Duke. I know some have been calling for both him and Wojo to "take other jobs," but I love them. Don't necessarily agree with Wojo solo coaching the big ben, but we never argued it in the past, when we were producing titles and guys like Shelden Williams.

    Anyway, back to Chris. He's obviously way too legit 2 quit. We all know this

    Thanks for that, Jumbo. I'm truly an idiot.

    It's April and there sure are a lot of fools on here.

    I guess I am just a mere infant of a poster, but I did not yet know about Jumbo's sense of humor. Never thought he'd get me on April fools like this.
