The written version which I couldn't find online to link. Comparing present day Duke to 70's, 80's Notre Dame? Reaffirming that Digger was a pioneer in getting college basketball televised and creating the "us vs them" persona that Duke now lives and ND lived back when.
Digger always scheduled the best teams possible, not a normal habit nowadays. A few quotes from Kelly Tripuka that say they were on TV and hated as much as any team at the time. Duke actually was a national favorite when coach K was starting out in the 80's. Not the case now.
A good read for those of us that root for the good guys. No recruiting cheating, taking the best of those that qualify for college and playing as a winning team.
Not easy to do, which is why if you don't respect the smart schools to play with the Kentucky's Texas's and Flrda Sate teams on a national level, you don't really understand what the recruiting limits are.
Vaccaro, reading my posts on BBI again and not giving me credit. Should I get an OBJ haircut and sue?
Any loyal Irish fans that would like to comment? We already know how the lower echelon feels.
I would like an honest opinion from Virginia fans though. UNCW is a good squad but not better than Va. Can House Party and Sumo Hair Bun guy step up this time? Only 11% of the country is picking the upset, most have no clue who UNCW is, can I get an opposing opinion?
A good article, as I said over a week ago here, Digger is the reason you can watch college basketball n TV, be it good or bad, that's why coaches with endorsements will be forever grateful.
Brey is the better hands on coach, Digger micromanaged to a fault but if we beat Duke in the ACC championship, we get a 2 or 3 seed and don't have to see Princeton in the first round. No way in hell that Virginia should be ranked ahead of us.
