07:19 AM ET 10.03 | Nearing 35 years on the job at Duke, Mike Krzyzewski certainly has earned the right to speak on the subject. That's one of the reasons NCAA President Mark Emmert came to Durham last week, as he met with Krzyzewski, Duke athletic director Kevin White and university president Richard Brodhead. Krzyzewski said he's hopeful that dramatic changes can come for schools and student-athletes in the next 5-6 months. "All the stuff with the NCAA, what's wrong and what's right, not too much is said about what's right," Krzyzewski said to the Durham Sports Club at Croasdaile Country Club Wednesday. "There are things that we haven't kept up with over the last couple of decades as far as adapting to the current. Like coming up with a new definition for amateurism."

I will help you. New definition of amateurism =
1. Getting your top recruit's Mom a "job" at a key booster's company in Durham in which she never shows up.
2. Have your star player arrange credit for over $150k of bling while your on your last championship run.
3. Have your picture (Coach K) airing every 10 minutes for American Express or whoever during college Bball games.

Bottom line folks and Duke apologists. This guy is a fraud.

I agree with 18-0 and counting and that doesn't tell the complete story. One kid on the 99 team admitted to taking money and the NCAA still didn't do anything.. Good post!!
