    I'm surprised at how excited I am to watch this game. Y'all may know that I am a late comer to this Duke BB party, but coming from whence I did, it's really cathartic to feel clean when cheering for these kids.

    LET'S GO DEVILS!!!!!

    Morning!

    As tired as I am... definitely don't regret waking myself up at this ungodly hour. Cheers from the West Coast!

    Why will I not be surprised if the video quality on this feed is better than some of the ACC feeds from last year?

  5. #5
    And yes, the feed appears to be way better. Hrmmm...

    GO DEVILS!

    Any sense of whether the Chinese people have any idea of Duke basketball? Or are we there to teach them?

    Anyone have a link to the rules they are applying? I am not seeing the fouls being called.

    Wow

    TERRIBLE camera work. Gottlieb, as always, is a moron (yes, we DO miss Scheyer from last year's team, don't we, Dougie?). The officiating? Hoo boy. You can already see in their expressions that our guys think these calls are BS. And Mason - ah, well, never mind.

    Yeah, what was that last foul on Austin? The guy just made an awkward move and lost control and somehow Austin got hit with a foul . .

    Yeah, I hate Gottlieb too . . .

    I get up, pour myself a bowl of Cheerios, turn up the volume on ESPN's college basketball theme to make sure I'm not dreaming, and right when I thought everything was perfect, I was rudely brought back to Earth by a snarky Gottlieb comment about Duke gettin all the calls.

    Whatever this is still sweet

    This is getting ridiculous . . . I know it's an exhibition, but who the heck is paying these refs?? I don't even have to guess when I hear a whistle, it's probably against us . . .

    I love Coach K, fired up, in August, in a meaningless matchup.

    The scoreboard operators seem as competent as the referees.

    The ball seems extra bouncy and the floor seems extra slilppery.

    I'm very thankful for Austin and I'd like to see Andre assert himself him off the dribble.

    Best thing about this game so far is Ryan's Zoubeard.

    summer time and the living is easy

    'cepting for our bigs. I have to say that i am completely unimpressed by Mason, and Miles is showing a good motor but not much production. Ryan though drilled a 3 and another bucket, kinda what he's supposed to do. Our guards have been pretty erratic. As the announcers have been pointing out, our O is looking outta sync and is in need of someone to be more assertive as the distributor. That will come with time. Hopefully...

    The ball is bouncy, the floor is slippery. the scoreboard operator is incompetent, so are the refs, Gottlieb is a crappy announcer. Can't you all just be happy you get to watch some Duke ball. What's with the complaining? Its August!
