Duke Still Back of the Pack

George Dohrmann writes for SI that "Duke is Back" after their win over Purdue. But Duke isn't anywhere. The Dukies had no inside presence, didn't have enough athleticism to get separation from midget Purdue defenders, and couldn't make shots.

Oh, I forgot to mention that Duke's a turnover machine as well.

Of course, it could be claimed that I'm biased because I have a couple of North Carolina degrees and root for Kentucky.

I also have to confess that my ex-wife teaches at Duke.

But my bias doesn't make Duke a better basketball team.

Be surprised--be very surprised--if Duke gets much further.
