WASHINGTON D.C. -- I was asked to do an interview on the Jim Rome Show a little while ago today, and since there’s spotty cell-phone reception in the media room and with the Verizon Center court closed for practices, I ducked into a hallway to do it. At one point, Rome asked me about Duke’s scare last night and whether it’s a sign of trouble ahead, and I told him -- as I’ve believed for some time now -- that these Blue Devils are not as talented as many of their predecessors and not necessarily suited for a deep tournament run.
As I said this, I looked to my left -- and there was the entire Duke team walking by me to the locker room.
