Not to mention, UNC brought back ALL of their starters. UNC could very well go undefeated

I am one of the biggest Duke fans on these forums, and I am going to say no. We don't have the inside play to win it all.

I think Duke's going to be one of the ACC's better teams this year, but there's only a few teams that, on paper, look capable of stopping UNC, and none of them are the Blue Devils.

I fail to see how being a Duke fan is bandwagon? When was the last time they won a title, 2001? When was the last time we went to the Final Four? JJ Reddick's Sophomore season. Just because someone is a Duke fan doesn't make them a band wagoner.

if they hit their threes against the best teams, they can easily win...

Too bad nobody relies on three's to win a National Championship. Stop being a homer.

@Iodine, the SwaggaIke Allstars are takin over the world. Half my team in the olympics. We killing Beijing, then we comin back to the states to do damage.

thats being a homer?
they can easily beat any team in the country if they hit their threes, which they are very good at.

im not saying they will.
i just said its possible.

I ain't mean to come at you like that. My b. This is what I should have said. Coach K's style doesn't work for the game as it is presently constituted. His players aren't around long enough to build the great chemistry that Duke was once known for. And if they do stick around, they aren't as talented. I still think they are in the 2nd tier of teams in the Nation, but I don't consider them a National Championship threat.

Duke is simply a big man away from being championship contenders. Believe me, if we had a Tyler Hansbrough, Blake Griffin, BJ Mullens, or Patrick Patteson even, we would be contenders and possibly a top 3 if not best overall team in the nation.

Our only hope is that Brian Zoubek can have a breakout year. Last year he was giving us a lot of quality points and defense toward the end when his foot injury was finally healing up.

You aren't giving any new information. I just said they live in die by the three. Obviously because they have no dominant post player. But you don't and that's the point. Duke isn't attractive to those guys.

duke is attractive to most players.
they are a top program.

they had JJ, sheldon williams, josh mcroberts, etc etc, in last few years.

if mcroberts didnt leave they probably would have won one by now.

McRoberts was not a dominant post player and was never going to become one. He was very overrated. JJ and Sheldon were players that came into their own over time. Time that Coach K no longer gets out of talented players. They may be a top program but they are no longer an elite program.

They were both signed to 6 years ago. They had them and couldn't win a championship then.

arguably the best player from his class left that didnt go to the draft.

We do have Mason Plumlee signed for next year, and were in the finals for Patterson a year ago, but you're right, Duke fails to recruit the big men. However, we have changed our philosophy for this upcoming recruiting class by offering scholarships to 5 PF/C, sadly only 1 of them signed. Then, again in 2009, we offered scholarships to 5 PF/C and once again only 1 has given a verbal agreement so far. Duke is making strides to get the big men back into the University, but I don't see any major prospects coming here any time soon.

I am saying this for all DUKE fans. We love Duke we love them in basketball but we also keep up with them in all the other sports of course we do like another college but they aint in the ACC so whats the problem??? That doesnt make us any kind of Bandwagon or Fair weather fan.

Um, it's the complete opposite actually. The only lost one key player from last year, DeMarcus Nelson, and the rest of the starters are back.
