    But, I already know the correct answer. Just ask me.
    Who do you have in the K vs. Wooden debate?

    This team should be primed to give 110% effort in practice and on playing D this year. Nobody will want to get put in Ks doghouse for lack of effort. That extra motivation should give this young team a nice edge.

    I appreciate it when someone links these — I don’t always catch the articles on the front page. As noted above, I love the lead off quote about the succession plan. This bit of the article was the one that will last the longest in my mind: “ If there was a theme, it was a simple, yet powerful theme. You need someone to believe in you and take a chance on you and then you have to honor that belief by doing the best you can to live up to it.”

    I'm usually a fan of The Ringer - some of their work is better than others, but overall they do a good job and bring an interesting perspective.

    This, on the other hand, is a huge hack job of every bad Duke stereotype. I should have quit after the second paragraph with the reference to "Cameron Indoor Arena." I thought they were better than this, but I guess Bill Simmons is too busy sucking up to the cool kids.

    That was my last game in Cameron as a Duke student. All my other friends went to the post-game bonfire, I went straight to my car and cried the whole way home. Super emotional, but what a way to end it! I'd love for Coach K to ride off into the sunset with that outcome, followed in kind by a national championship a month later.

    Will Krzyzewskiville adopt a new name? Or will it always be called Krzyzewskiville? If the name does change, I would vote for "Scheyer Shire"

    If Capel had chosen to turn down the Pitt job three years ago and remained on staff, would he now have been named the next coach in waiting? I always assumed he needed to leave and prove himself as a head coach before he would be considered as K's replacement, but now the opposite appears to be true and Scheyer is being rewarded for his loyalty.

    If Covid had never happened, would K be retiring THIS season? According to CBS's latest podcast, K has been contemplating retirement for a while but was really unhappy with how last season went down and would not let that be the lasting memory people have of his career. Had it been a normal season and we went to, say, the sweet 16, would he then be ready to hang it up now?
    It needs to always be called Kzyzewskiville... that was Coach K's clear and strong wish.

    I'm sure others on this board were there, but at the "Team Meeting", the night before the 1998 unc game, speaking on Cameron's legacy (juxtaposed against The Smith Center), and discussing how he wanted it to always be called Cameron, Coach K said "My biggest wish, is that they always call it Krzyzewskiville".

    It literally has a sign and a plaque. That's pretty permanent.

    Always is a long time, but it will stay Krzyzewskiville for at least our respective lifetimes, and I have no idea how old you are. Who would even try to change it?

    That may be more meaningful to him than Coach K Court, the originality of which he joked about at the press conference.

    If it changes it will be organic, not fiat. The change would be earned and made by the student residents.

    This seems like as good of a place as any to ask this question...once upon a time (2000, so two years after he expressed the desire that Krzyzewskiville always have that name), my roommate and I presented Coach K with a second copy of that sign to commemorate the unveiling of the sign that's in CB&B's photo. My attached photo was used in a book that was published a few years later, and it appears that the original never made it back to Duke University Photography. Does anybody have a similar photo? I'd love to get ahold of a copy.

    Roy Williams, interviewed on the day Coach K announced his retirement. (YouTube link here and embedded below)



    It's worth watching. He's very complimentary. I was going to make up some quotes for the sake of humor, but with Roy being Roy, I didn't have to.

    "Alan told me, I guess on the last hole back there, and so I've had 500 yards to think about it."
    "In the old days, it was a little easier. There weren't as many teams. There weren't as many teams in the Final Four [?] and some other things."
    "The only thing wrong with Mike Krzyzewski is that he doesn't play golf."
    "Michael doesn't need Roy Williams giving him advice."
    "You know, the rain is coming, and I'll tell you, as much as I like you, I ain't staying here much longer."

    In a sense that's correct. Until he walked away, Wooden was unquestionably the GOAT. Then he got overtaken, by a lot.

    I was bored and checked out IC for a few minutes. Currently the top three threads are about Duke. And there are 11 separate threads about Duke, K and Scheyer on the front page. Talk about living rent free in someone else’s head! Okay, gotta go hit the showers.
