I came in second for my pool (not believing in Memphis enough to put them in the Final Four was my Achilles heel), but $350 is decent consolation.

Good call on Ks.

Thanks, you had 'em too?

They always hate on those white boys who can play:

Oh, you feel ok about talking about "white 'boys,'" which is some kind of twisted inside racial identity bigotism.

2017, wake up.

Overinterpret much, dimwit.

Duke has had more than its share of bigotry tossed its way through the years.

Learn your history, backwoods dope.

And a good deal of what you call “bigotry” was earned... mostly because of the “Cameron Crazies” of the 80s and early 90s. Throwing bananas on the court, holding up signs for opposing players at the free throw line that said, “Can you read this?” Yeah, that earned my enmity for a good long while.

Then there was Christian Laettner... who is a pretty nice guy but was also a world class smack talker and he made that fucking shot.

Coach K was resented for all that “win the right way” stuff that was presented by media as win the “white way.”

Now with “one and dones” and no antipodal program (Georgetown, UNLV, Michigan, etc.) to be devil to their angel the Coach K resentment was mostly over, plus expertly fielding NBA squads to Olympic Gold doesn’t hurt his cred, either.

We’re folks hoping for Dukes comeuppance with the Lacrosse team scandal? Yeah, without a doubt.

Bigotry? Nope.
Racial resentment versus privileged entitlement? You bet!

But after that the air has seemed to come out of the animosity balloon.

Hell, even with the Oscar worthy flops, Grayson Allen doesn’t draw the ire of the bros.

The UVA-Wisconsin game demonstrated far better than I could say, my increasing dislike of college basketball. There is zero reason that D-1 players on relatively well- matched teams should play in a 49-37 game.

Looks like big-time college basketball will be taking a few years off.

Maybe ESPN  can do a "Wire" type 30 on 30 expose on this newest NCAA scandal.

“Everybody acts shocked that some kid from extraordinarily poor circumstances who’s got potentially 5 or 10 or 15 million dollars waiting for him is going to be circled by everybody, in a context in which people are making billions of dollars,” Obama said. “It’s not good. At minimum, one way of thinking about this would be what happens in baseball. If you’re Bryce Harper or Aaron Judge, then you make that jump [to the professional level]. Even if you’re not ready for the big leagues immediately, at least it’s clear that this is going to be your profession. You start getting paid, the professional organization is on the hook, there’s clarity.
