    Nolan's Arm

    What is the deal with Nolan's arm? What's inside that wrap? Looks odd.

    I heard that he had Patrick Davidson under that wrap. But that could just be a rumor.

    Somebody said it could be covering a tender (and recent) tattoo, which makes sense. Whatever it is, I was heartened by his strong play yesterday. Other than getting played badly by Christmas on that one 3-pointer, he played encouragingly.

    I think he is the only Freshman that looks to improve game by game. Really wasn'nt impressed with him the first few games and now seems to be really doing a solid job out there. Maybe he just made a few minor adjustments but looks good to me. Still has a ways to go before he reaches Singler.


    Singler is great and has pretty much stayed Great. King, Well he has had his bad days(Cornell game)

    He's got a bruise that won't go away, so that's just protective covering.

    Agreed that it looks odd...kinda like a cigarette sleeve on a James Dean shirt.

    I kind of thought that was the case. It looks like he's wearing a donut, the bruise being in the opening of the donut, so that if he gets hit in that location the impact is dispersed to the area surrounding the hole of the donut thereby preventing further injury to the bruise.

    At least that is what I recall from my athletic training days oh so many years ago.

    Maybe he is getting acclimated to college life. Encouraged that he did well his first semester at one of the stellar academic institutions in America. Or maybe, . . . .

    Nolan's had a tattoo since high school and at first he simply covered it up, which I'm guessing was at Krzyzewski's request. But I have no idea why he's wearing the pad, I just doubt its for the tattoo because he's had it for a while now, at least since the season started.

    I can't imagine that's true. Boozer had that giant bear tat on his arm (which was pretty awesome, btw) and J-Will had some serious ink as well, and they were never covered up. Unless K is getting crotchety in his old age.

    Didn't notice that he covered it up before. I really doubt K asked him too (unless its offensive or something, which is doubtful. nolan's a classy guy from a good family) seeing as how we've had guys with lots of exposed tattoos before: booz, maggette, jwill, dahntay, dockery...

    Tattoo

    While I have no ink, I have designed hundreds of tattoos for other people to get. I have designed all types of images and words but I have yet to have anyone request a Tattoo tattoo. I wonder why?

    Jim Sumner is the best person to ask about this, but at least in the past decade, Coach K has not required anyone to cover up tattoos, nor has he forbade anyone to add tattoos to their appearances while at Duke.

    His fiercest restrictions have recently been to hair (re: Kyle Singler and Lance Thomas pre-Duke.)

    I agree with the donut over a bruise theory. Played some football in my day and had that arrangement atop some stitches once and covering a "stone" bruise on my forearm.

    Or maybe he's experimenting with a Gatorade patch from the sports med. dept. to remain hydrated during the game. Dunno...

  14. Whatever it is, it seems to be working. Can we get some for the rest of the team?

    novascotian, i had heard it was a patch for a tattoo (this is out of my world, the whole tattoo thing and patches and all that...) but we were kicking it around the other night as to what it could be and a thought i had was 'well, he could fit an iPod in that thing while he's out there playing!' hahahaha.

    dth.

    coach k wouldn't ever request a player to "cover" up a tattoo, unless it was in some way offensive.

    it's probably some sort of tender spot, that he doesn't want to get banged up.

    It is the patch - he's trying to quit smoking.

    He is asking about Nolan, not Newton
