08:17 AM ET 02.06 | Perhaps recent stories about a less rabid Cameron faithful extend to the team, too. Over the past week or two, one can tell how frustrated Mike Krzyzewski is with his team by the number of times he raps his knuckles against the table during his postgame news conference. After Miami surprised Duke 78-74 in overtime Sunday ... it was suggested Duke takes winning at Cameron Indoor Stadium for granted. Krzyzewski didn't disagree with the assessment, although he wondered how that could be the case since he regularly implores his team to guard against complacency. "I'm with them all the time," Krzyzewski said. "They should listen, and they did not. That's not good." He then paused, forcefully tapping the table five or six times. "It's not good."

Oh how the k-rat turns. dook is an over-hyped product of dSPN. Most of America hates dook and it's holier than thou arrogance. Wednesday night is coming, let's see if the dookies respond to k-rat & his trolls meltdown in Hansbrough Indoor Stadium @ the hands of the U.

Nobody outside of Duke gives a lacrosse ho about this.

Duke is still a relatively young team, at least a year away from being a legitimate national contender. But complacency is not the problem; defending under the basket is.

Austin Rivers is a blue chipper? This kid is a ball hog and plays consistently out of control... I can only hope Rivers is a one and done - let Doc put up with Austin's selfishness...

QUOTE(#9):

Duke will give NC all they can handle Wednesday.. NC in a close one..Hoyas will upset the Cuse as well this day...I agree UK Cuse and OSU are the legit title contenders.. NC has a chance if they stop playing soft in the middle...

dook will bring out the best UNC has to offer. Delusional about the Tar HEELS yes indeed. Thinking the Cuse or PITT are going to sit atop the ACC from the jump shows how naive you are. UNC top 3 almost if not every season since the Dean Smith era began. Check your history book son.

Rivers is a freshman and he needs to mature as a team player. But he and Cook (another freshman) played with the most intensity, especially on defense. I hope they both stay.

As a Duke fan I can assure you that you are wrong here, this actually the one area where Duke is good at. The Plumlee's are doing an excellent job on the glass and defending the post. The problem is the guards couldn't defend a 500 lb. man from bringing the ball up the floor.

"most of America" are not duke fans and love it...

its all about the U

^^^Word.

Just give Miami credit for winning the game. The refs tried to give Duke chances to win with those foul calls but hey, can't win 'em all.

what is the big deal? all the top teams are only scrimmaging for March Madness .... and I hope some unknown teams make a serious run for the title.... hate to say it, but the usual suspects need to tank in the 1-2 round
