    Delaurier will, like his ancestors Lance Thomas and Amile Jefferson, will lead us to a title.

    To my eye, he's much more athletic than those two....and if he can really hit the three now...hmm...

    I'm so happy to see this news - I've always been impressed by Javin, and I'm happy to see him be rewarded. A couple of things of note - 1) Vrank is not a captain. If we assume that is because he isn't going to play much and so they gave it to the juniors who will, then 2) why is Bolden also not a captain? Is K not predicting him to play much? Is he just not a good leader? Is he causing harm in the locker room?

    I think it's safe to say that DeLaurier and White are the best intersection of experience, leadership and likely PT.

    How are the captains selected? I know K can (and does) strip captainship, but is he the only word in who starts the season with the honors? Does the team have input?

    That was my thought too...with a focus on the PT

    Based on how I've heard Coach K explain it before, the players vote on it, and the coaches have the final say on the captain(s).

    So, basically the players get to vote on a guess as to whom the coaches really want as captain(s).

    Great Decision

    These elections/appointments make me proud to be a B Devil. Those guys are the epitome of what it means to agree to be subordinative for the betterment of the team. How neat it will be to see them at center court before the game. Go Devils!

    It is more like a Russian election. You can vote for whomever you want, but the winner is "announced" by the party in control.

    ...which could be why the N and O's Luke DeCock talks about brushing up on his "Kremlinology" when discussing K and the Duke program....LOL

    Both Cs are Juniors, which means they will almost certainly have the honor of being a 2-time captain. Anyone know how many of those we have had? Here is a list of Captains through the 2010 season but it has not been updated since then.
    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.

    Surely this is the link you meant to include for our very own jester of Tortuga.
