    Duke has to go BIG next year

    Frank Jackson, Allen, DeLaurier, Bolden, Vrankovic

    Duke has to go big next year with all the changes that have happened so far to be successful. Agree or Disagree?

    Absolutely disagree. Ballhandling and shooting are important, and that lineup would be mostly abysmal at both. And DeLaurier will play zero minutes at SF at Duke.

    J J Redick hasn't played for Duke in a long time...having a jump shooting fest won't cut it anymore CDu...It's a new day. Duke has to play Bolden and Vrank together and dominate the boards and keep opposing teams out of the paint.

    Deepest team in Duke history just lost to South Carolina.

    I expect DeLaurier to start at point next season, with Jack White at the 2. Bolden, Carter and Vrankovic will start up front. Robinson and O'Connell will be the bench. Duke will play a 2-3 zone exclusively and pound the glass. Happiness will ensue.

    Rumor has it that Besser has grown 6 inches since the end of the season and has been showing Anthony Davis like skills on both ends the court. I expect him to lead Duke in scoring.

    We had more talented big men on our roster this year than any Duke team in recent memory. There are no hard and fast rules about what Duke "has to" do.

    Too early to say what we should or will do next season. Clearly, we need to see the status of the recruiting and returning players before any talk about how we should play.

    Some of you guys need to humble yourselves and take heed to what I say. HOPEFULLY coach K reads the board and follows what I say.

    This is the best post I've read on DBR. It's very deep, with "you guys need to humble yourselves" followed by "take heed to what I say". You can't make this up.

    This Tazorac guy is a joke.

    So, is this joker a) 12-years old, b) a bandwagon fan who doesn't understand college ball, or c) a UNC fan?
