06:59 PM ET 01.24 | The Miami Hurricanes pulled off one of the most impressive upsets of the college basketball season, soundly routing Duke 90-63 on Wednesday night. The game was one that ESPN happened to be showcasing, but there was very little of the usually pom-pom shaking for Duke, in fact at one point in the second half, Dick Vitale started to relentlessly rant about Duke's performance. "This is the poorest performance I have witnessed from a Duke team in all my years sitting courtside," Vitale said during live ESPN broadcast. "Warm up the bus, this game is over. (The Blue Devils) have no one to blame but themselves." Vitale even penned an article for ESPN.com where he continued his rant about Duke, and how they were just straight up beat by the 'Canes.

Its not much of an analysis to say Duke was "straight up beat by the 'Canes". I don't follow CBB, and I could figure that out. Tell us why, Dickie V, and how the "Canes beat Duke by 27 points, or return your paycheck.

Coach K probably did a whole lot of ripping.

QUOTE(#3):

Miami didn't beat Duke as much as Duke let Miami beat them. Clearly Duke is a better team. They just played lack luster and pansyish and got blown out.

you're high as a rocket
