    The Vigil Vigil

    What was your all-time favorite Vigil?

    Mine is still the one about Toe Lawson's toe. It just had this epic quality.

    Not a vigil, but my favorite meme here was the Southern Illinois Saluki hangover

    We had a very good poster from SIU, right? He debriefed us about the whole team down to the guy with the gatorade bottle and the towels.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Absolutely the very, very best. I even saved it to a file in case it ever got lost on DBR.

    1968 - Duke Vigil

    The 1968 Duke Vigil following the killing of Dr King.

    It was the large scale introduction of the changes then sweeping the country to our quite traditional campus and a pivotal event in my political and moral development

    ^ Win.

    BTW, is the Patrick Davidson thread technically a vigil? I thought a vigil, in the most descriptive sense, was a long thread where we're all breathlessly awaiting some sort of development, and bloviating in the meantime.

    The one that made me want to stick an ice pick in my brain was the John Wall Recruitment Vigil.

    Right. The key point was, IIRC, that Duke may not just lose to SIU but they would probably lose their next game because apparently everyone gets sooooo exhausted playing a 40 minute game against SIU that the effect lasts for weeks.

    I don't know about favorite, but my most memorable was the Kyrie Irving Toe Vigil. So many twists and turns - first hearing he was hurt but not knowing how badly, then thinking we'd lost him for the season, then months of agonizing and speculation when we didn't have ANY information, then finally getting him back and not knowing what to do about it. Meanwhile, a pretty darn good season went by that we only half paid attention to.

    It really was too bad for Nolan and Kyle. That team has an ACC Championship, Kyrie or no Kyrie.

    We weren't calling it so back then, but there was a pretty extensive Shavlik Randolph Recruitment Vigil on the old board.

    Can we all agree that the definition of a "vigil" is endless posts filled with mildly informed or often totally uniformed speculation while posters await any news and then proceed to over-analyze even the tiniest morsel of news? Agreed?

    If so, then I nominate every single thread discussing minutes/rotations/lineups.

    I think Jason posits this as a comment on the duality of man.

    What a Joker.

    NO WAY man...kyle singler is DEFINITELY going to play all his time at the 4 this year.
    It's being reported that due to coronavirus fears, Harvard has asked students not to return from spring break, and for classes to be held online.

    Not to be outdone, UNC told students to stop coming to class 27 years ago under Dean Smith.

    Wait a minute. How is the military involved in this? We can only speculate, or edit. Otherwise, I agree 100%.
