    I didn't even join the board until April of last year, but in my other brackets I correctly picked Dook to lose to West Virginia in the 2nd round. I'm really good at picking Dook to lose in the NCAA Tournament. I picked the VCU game correctly. I picked the LSU game correctly. And the Indiana game from 2002.

    Thanks! I am hoping for many more people this year. Lots of new faces have expressed interest. I am hoping for 75 or so entries this time around.

    They certainly don't disappoint. I'm feeling a GREAT year for Dook and have them losing in the Sweet 16. They'll lose to a 3-seed, so........maybe Pittsburgh or Villanova. Or maybe a 2nd-round loss to Utah State is in the cards. The possibilities for choking are endless for those Dookies.

    hey hey now...i wouldn't call it choking. the last few years, duke always went into the tourney overachieving. they haven't been preseason favs for awhile. unlike your boys, who somehow, manage to lose in the big games. i'm not jinxing it yet, but until i see the brackets, duke has the squad for a potential run.

    You have to BE in big game in order to lose them. Unfortunately, we haven't seen how well Dook would do in big game for quite some time now.

    I'm gonna throw some numbers at you and you tell me if Dook overachieved the past few years. Ready?

    2005-2006: Dook has 7 McDonald's All-Americans, including the nation's 2nd-leading scorer, and loses in the Sweet 16 to LSU. (Carolina had 3 McDonald's All-Americans and lost in the 2nd round to George Mason. A rebuilding year).

    2006-2007: Dook has 6 McDonald's All-Americans and loses to VCU in the 2nd round. (Carolina advanced to the Elite 8 with the same number of McDonald's All-Amerians as Dook).

    2007-2008: Dook has 7 McDonald's All-Americans and loses to West Virginia in the 2nd round. (Carolina advanced to the Final Four with 2 less McDonald's All-Americans than Dook).

    2008-2009: Carolina has 6 McDonald's All-Americans that are healthy (Tyler Zeller is injured). Dook has 6 McDonald's All-Americans, as well. Let's see what happens....

    Yep, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and last. Maybe a 4th place if we can get to 70 entries or so. And it will still be $25/entry.

    awesome rocke...

    and tommy, duke's been young all those years with only one or two upperclassmen. i can make excuses up to wazoo but i'm just saying...nobody picked duke to win a title any of those years. i believe more than a few "experts" picked nc. this year, all bets are off.

    In 05-06, their two best players were seniors (Redick and Shelden Williams). That gave guys like McRoberts, Nelson and Paulus time to get experience without having to be the main players on that team. They also had a senior guard in Sean Dockery, so Paulus didn't have to be the top point guard on the team. Not like they were thrown into the fire. That same season, Hansbrough had to be the leader on a young Carolina team and he led them to a win in Cameron and a top 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

    In 06-07, Dook was young but talented. One of the main problems with that team was Josh McRoberts was a complete underachiever. Way to go Coach Splinter for evaluating great talent yet again. They relied on the 3, but only had one significant player shoot over 40% (Greg Paulus). Nice strategy their coach. Carolina's best players that same season were Tyler Hansbrough, Brandan Wright, Wayne Ellington and Ty Lawson. 3 sophomores and 1 freshman. That inexperienced team finished losing in the Elite 8

    Last season, Dook had a nice mix of underclassmen and upperclassmen. Paulus had experience as the primary point guard, Nelson was supposed to be the senior leader. Henderson was one of the top recruits in 06 out of high school and was supposed to blossom as a sophomore. Again, their talent underachieved and got ousted early in the tourney, while Carolina improved from the previous year and made the Final Four. And that was with one senior (Quentin Thomas) playing decent minutes.

    Bottom line: Carolina has improved each year since Hansbrough and Co. got there, while Dook has gone from making the Sweet 16 to losing twice in the 2nd round.

    And nobody picked Dook to win the title any of those years because they have been huge underachievers that it wouldn't make sense to pick a team that constantly blows it in the tournament. That's how far Dook basketball has fallen. It's not good sense to even pick them to go to the Final Four, much less win the national title.

    UConn should be an instant Final Four entry on everyone's bracket...

    that team is loaded in size... no easy baskets against them..

    and they play a nice inside-outside offense.
    pretty much flawless

    UConn definitely has a tough squad. Thabeet seriously changes the game. Here is my early Final Four: North Carolina, UConn, Louisville, North Dakota State.

    Coach K's style isn't suited to win a national title anymore. Dook is gonna shoot themselves right out of the tournament every single year. And his recruiting has been seriously lacking lately. Carolina is recruiting better, more cold-blooded athletes than Dook. You're gonna point to Gerald Henderson, but he's the exception. And it's showing on the court. You'll see it continue as long as Roy Williams is at UNC. John Henson, Dexter Strickland and Kendall Marshall will run circles around Ryan Kelly, Mason Plumlee and whoever else Dook is bringing in.

    BlueDevil, just to show you I'm not a complete dick, here's a list of former Dook players who I actually like:

    Bill McCaffery
    Chris Burgess
    Andre Sweet
    Michael Thompson
    Eric Boateng
    Jamal Boykin
    Taylor King

    Is it obvious to you what they all have in common?

    One of my favorite Rage songs is "Know Your Enemy." Just sayin.


    All of those guys had the good sense to leave Coach Splinter's cult. BlueDevil I wanna see more hate out of you. Which Carolina players throughout history do you just HATE. Give me a top 10. Here are my top 10 most hated Dookies.

    Dahntay Jones
    Christian Laettner
    Lee Melchionni
    Chris Collins
    J.J. Redick
    Greg Paulus
    Matt Christensen
    Shane Battier
    Gerald Henderson
    Steve Wojo (too lazy to look up spelling)

    Top 5 Dookies I can sort of tolerate:

    Grant Hill
    Elton Brand
    Jay Williams
    Reggie Love
    Shit, I guess that's only 4.
