We've lost three times in the first round in the last 18 years doe.

Ya'll have missed the tournament or lost in the first round eight times in that same span.

So happy with our 2015 recruiting class. A very good foundational class.

Kennard will be a four year player for us and Jeter should be a three or four year guy too. Not to mention Sean Obi who will be a three year guy for us and is a monster on the glass.

It'll be nice to have some real post depth.

It is going to be a special year my friend. Enjoy every moment. We have so much balance.

I can't remember the last time that we had a true pass first point guard, a mobile back to the basket scoring big, two elite defenders on the wings, and a Battier-esque communicator at the four spot.

Our team fits together very nicely.

What're your thoughts about Matt starting over Rasheed?

Yeah, after last year I've been hesitant to annoint this team. Seeing them early on though, it's hard not to be excited for this year. As you said, this is as deep and balanced a team we've had since probably the 2001 team. Hopefully we can have the same success as that team.

I personally love Matt over Sheed. He fits perfectly with the starting lineup of Tyus/Justise/Amile/Jahlil. He and Justise will be a terror on the wings defensively and offensively he's a perfect complement to Tyus (he doesn't need the ball in his hands, knows how to play off ball) and Jahlil (his shooting will be valuable with Jah getting double and triple teamed).

Sheed is more ball dominant and more of a slasher. I think he'd thrive off the bench as a "6th" starter and spark offensively. The main thing I want is consistency from him. He struggled with that last year.

Im here. Im tempering my expectations. I do expect a Final Four though. Anything less is a huge letdown.

Okafor will be ACC POY, and a first team all american.

MATT JONES will be our second best player, and will come out of nowhere to be our rock on both sides of the ball.

I've never been a super huge college bball fan outside of like 2001-2006. I would have thought Duke had more than 4 championships.

Yup. Single elimination makes it very difficult to win them consistently, even for great programs. Although there are a few years in recent past that we likely could have won it all had we not suffered an injury to a key player and we also lost a couple of very close games as well.

Coach K has led Duke to four national championship appearances that they have lost.
