I've always hated Duke and root against them always,...however few in any biz are as classy as coach K, esp those that win as much as he has. What I also respect about him and the program is that they work hard at putting out upstanding young men that can also play basketball. I still don't like Duke, but its hard not the respect the heck out of Coach K and the program.
I don't really think his above reply was whiny either, it was totally truthful, what did you want him to say?
Still left to accomplish:
sign OT Winston or G Moore
