With Lawson back this time around North Carolina should take care of business. Not to take anything away from Puke, they are a good team. I just love this rivalry.

You are correct, but I will be rooting for UNC as the lesser of 2 evils. Duke disgusts me.

Childish Names ?

It's all in fun.
I am a Notre Dame fan, but when I was child ND wasn't all that great so I chose UNC as my BB team, But I still support ND for obvious reasons, and I also support Texas Tech, because I'm from Lubbock.

As far as childish names , you've never called another school, a funny altered name ? And if you haven't I don't care, get off my back, I respect Duke highly, I don't like them, but I respect them. If I say Puke its all in fun, not being childish.
If having fun is being childish, then I a toys-r-us kid, because I always want to have fun. Now you can either FUCK OFF, or accept my position on life, and thats to enjoy it to the fullest, and we will be cool.
Either way, enjoy your weekend, I wish you the Best.

I'm no expert, but he sure looked tentative to me. I'm not sure if his presence along will swing things in NC's favor.

Again, take what I say with a grain of salt as I'm only a casual fan.

Interesting as a fan of basketball that you wouldnt be interested in what will surely be a memorable game between two highly talented, highly skilled teams...I assume it has something to do with your geographic location...why would you not be interested?

Thread Level: 6

Yeah, basically geographic location.

Author: irishfaninPA (394 Posts - Original UHND Member)

Posted at 4:10 pm on Mar 7, 2008

Well, I'm a Louisville fan too, so its hard to get into a game I don't care about. I know Duke-UNC are among the Elite teams in basketball, but I can only take so much about these teams. Basically can't stand them because I get sick of hearing about them.

I've lived all over the country and even have family in the Philly area...I'm just a huge fan of the game....and my son is very interested in going to Duke....heresy I know but my daughter could likely be a Gator....

I think Coach K has done a lot with the team he's got this year....it's truly missing a big man but has some great shooters and just some great disciples of the game....I also think they have great team chemistry and play the game as a team...there are no showboats on that team....

This is a great time of year if you're a college bball fan....doesnt get any better than this

They are both pretty even and it is at Duke. So I'll give the edge to Duke.

Any team that gets swept by Maryland isn't making it past the Sweet 16 in my brackets.

Fact check alert, Duke didn't get swept by Maryland this year

Author: NDNEIL (5476 Posts - Original UHND Member)

Posted at 11:29 am on Mar 7, 2008

Not only did they not get swept by Maryland, they swept Maryland themselves. Probably the dumbest stat anyone has every tried to slip by me. Nice try doh. And oh yeah, UNC did lose to Marland AT HOME.

Not sure Duke will make it past the sweet 16 either, but that is because they rely a lot on the three. If they hit their 3's not many teams can beat them, if they don't then just about any team can beat them.

As for IU, they are still very talented but have mailed in the season. It is no coincidence that the 4 worst games they have played this year are the four games after Sampson was fired. I mean, on senior night they couldn't even play hard until 6 minutes to go when the realized they might actually lose to Minnesota. To paraphrase Jamarcus Ellis after the MSU game, "we just haven't been playing hard."

Maybe I was watching the chicks play and the commentator said it. Or maybe it WAS just the other way around.

Still, I haven't been impressed by Duke this year. A physical team that can bang the boards and guard the perimeter gives them fits. This is the weakest ACC in the last 20 years, and it's hard to call UNC or Duke dominant without wondering if they've really played anybody.

If they face an athletic team in the second round who can hound their perimeter guys, they will be knocked off.

See VCU last season.

Send me a b-mail after the game if UNC wins and let me know how you want me to get the money to you. I will do the same if Duke wins. FYI, I probably won't check UHND until Monday, so don't think I am avoiding you if I haven't responded.
