Duke vs. North Carolina

25 posts in this topic

Best rivalry in the nation will be played out this week during rivalry week on ESPN.

This matchup is that much better when both teams are ranked in the top 10. It's at North Carolina, and both teams have one loss each, are ranked 2 and 3....always great games, great players, great tradition.

I'll be recording the game as I have my own league that night. UNC leads the all time series 127-96. Gotta support UNC...a state school versus the rich boy Dukies. Truthfully I've had enough of both schools, but I'd rather see UNC win I guess.

There have been some pretty good games over the years. Check them out at Wikipedia some time.

Duke has always been there. Carolina had some down years when I think Daugherty was coach. I think that was his name, the guy that coached Notre Dame. Games are always fun to watch. Up tempo and the crowds are unbelievable.

No surprise here: "Duke" Vitale will come back from his throat ulcer surgery 3 months ago in time to call the Duke-UNC game. I love Dickie V, got a photo with him when I met him in Florida, but man does that guy fawn over Duke like Madden loves Brett Favre.

Go DUKE!

Up by 3 at the break. They led by double digits but it slipped away in the latter part of the first half. Time to crank it back up again and put this state school back in it's place.

The old saying "throw the records out when these two play" certainly applies with these teams. It doesn't matter if either of them is having a bad year, it always is a knock down, drag out fight to the final buzzer. Gotta love it.

Well the middle of the 2nd half has been very sloppy. If Duke loses it'll be due to missed FT's, and if UNC loses it'll probably be from turnovers. Duke has been on fire from the 3pt line and has helped overcome their inability to hit a simple FT.

Duke pulled it out. If UNC hadn't lost to Maryland it would have been another 1-2 matchup. Should be an interesting game at Coach K court in early March with Lawson back.

I have been a huge UNC fan for many years. They did get outplayed tonight, no doubt about it. They did somethings that hurt them in the game. There going to be there for the tournament and give it a run. By end of the tournament, we will see which team is better!!!

Go Heels

Well, Hansbrough came to play (28-18). He disappeared at times last year. Might play himself back into the lottery if he keeps it up.

It appeared that Duke's strategy was to let the mouth-breather score and not pick up a bunch of fouls trying to stop him, while guarding the other four and making them beat Duke. It seemed to work. whistle.gif

no Lawson, could have played a big role. i'm a neutral fan and avid college basketball fan, and can say him not playing would have made a difference. u should be able to atleast admit that right lmitout.

Hard to say. Their other "big guns" didn't play very well either against Duke's defense, so I guess we'll have to wait for the next game to see.

Duke didn't have their big guy to battle against the mouth breather, and he'll be back for the next matchup to soak up some fouls too.

If lawson played, that would have changed the whole game IMO

UNC returned the favor tonight. If they win the ACC tournament they will be the #1 overall seed. I'm sure by next weekend we'll be preparing for another Duke UNC tilt. Three per year is pretty common. 16/15 for Hansbrough.

As soon as I heard Valentine and Hess were reffing the game I knew it was over before it started. Hate to do the ref blaming game, but I challenge anyone to find a game that they worked that Duke has won. Coincidence? Hardly.

Last night I was chatting with a buddy and I called it. I said as long as those two weren't reffing Duke had a chance. Go figure, guess what zebras showed up. I've watched enough Duke to know.

It was a good game and Duke rallied to take the lead late but couldn't overcome the lack of officiating to finish it out. I wasn't surprised to say the least.

Longtime Dukie, I would take the other side. I thought the NC center could have shot 10 free throws. He got none. Duke has no chance of getting to the elite 8/final 4. 1 cold shooting nite and no inside presence.

Yeah, but in football you can run with the ball without dribbling and it's not a violation. Hmm, I guess you're right...it was more like a football game than a basketball game. \:\/

It was a good game. Hansbrough is very tough. The only way Duke will win it all is if they shoot lights out. We should be in for a great March.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
