Completely gutless performance today by dook.

If I were the players I wouldn't let k or the other coaches on the bus. Make them think about this afternoon's performance and walk home.

Does anyone have the info on what the major player rankings on Duke’s roster is?

Was curious so looked it up earlier, 9 players ranked between #12 and #49 coming out of high school. It's now down to 8 players since Jalen Johnson left school.

I mean you have to consider how many people are watching just to see when duke loses

The NCAA wants Duke in the tournament because, one way or another, people watch. They don’t deserve it, but it is what it is.
It's not though. Again, Kentucky draws as many eyeballs as Duke does and was a 1 seed in an NIT tournament one year.

This isn't hard. They aren't making. They're 11-11 and have a Virginia win. Meanwhile, they have many bad losses. It's over for them.

Yet the media still rocks their nutz
They do? I've hardly noticed this year, to be honest. I'm skeptical it's been that big a deal because they suck. The news has mostly been the drama around them sucking. Which makes sense.

And the media rocked the nuts of Kentucky and UNC for years too and when their teams sucked they didn't make the NCAAs despite the nut-rocking.

Right now, on espn's basketball page, the lead story is, "Bubble Watch 2021: Is Duke done?"

Everyone and their grandma knew this before the loss to UNC so yes, the media rocks puke's nuts.

Isn't it reasonable to be interested in a team like Duke not making the tournament for the first time since 1993? This is obviously a story. And they had the issues with their top prospect.

Nothing about this is surprising. Or "rocking Duke's nuts." It's just the media making money however they can.

And Duke is done barring an ACCT title.

I think everything you said is accurate, and it all equates to rocking puke's nuts.

ACC tournament bracket.

Duke gets BC.
If they win, they get Louisville, who swept them this year.
If they win, they get Florida State, who they didn't play.

Frankly, most likely outcome by far is 1-1. 2-1 is crazy lucky. But even 3-1 isn't getting them in.

Interesting, for a puke fan. The BC game is a no-brainer. Duke lost to Louisville last week in OT. FSU just lost to ND. Go figure.

They are actually 120 to 490 until Duke offers them then they become Micky D’s

Correct on the first part. But 1-1 gets them in. All the committee needs to do is justify it. They can't do that with the NET ratings but they CAN with "other" power ratings.

Kentucky winning the SEC tournament is what would really suck. They are out, otherwise. The probability of that happening all comes down to whether refs are willing to call all the fouls they will commit just like every team the squid has will do when they are in danger of losing.

If Duke gets in then the committee loses all credibility.

You're just wrong here about Duke. Like, way outside of reality.

Honestly, I'm not sure K or the NCAA wants them in this year. They have to know how bad they are, and being Duke, whoever get them in the first round will be more hyped to play them, blood in the water. Does K or the NCAA really want everyone to see their golden child get potentially thrashed in the 1st round? Might be less embarrassing and protecting of Duke's image to leave them out.
