Miles Plumlee, Brother of Mason, Commits to Duke

May 2, 2008

Huh? I won’t say much about this because my mother taught me if I don’t have anything good to say, say nay-thing, but I just don’t get this. First, Miles Plumlee iced out Duke’s favorite son and immediate past Associate Head Coach Johnny Dawkins when he decommitted from Stanford upon learning that Dawkins would be Stanford’s next head coach. Now DUKE is taking this kid….FROM JOHNNY?

Second, we’ve already got Mason Plumlee, you know the one who is supposed to be better than his older brother, so why would be duplicate that guy, quite literally, when plenty of people are wondering if Mason is even good enough to contribute to Duke hoops?

Not even Ernie got that one. You know who I’m starting to think isn’t getting any of this at all? This cat:

I said it!

But But wait it gets worse…..Maybe Duke can sign Marshall Plumlee too… After all, he’s still available in the class of 2011. In fact, why don’t we just make their pops, Montgomery Plumlee, Athletic Director and then install moms, Marvita Plumlee as the head of the English Department or something.  In fact, let’s just change the entire school name to University of Plumlee Tech at Durham.

Are you kidding me?

Duke Versus UNC: The REAL Biggest Rivalry In Sports

February 6, 2008

Well is is sweeps Rivalry Week on ESPN, so it must be time for the greatest rivalry of all time, Duke Versus UNC. Before I get started, how the hell did ESPN think they could stretch the Duke/UNC game into an entire week of games? Kentucky v. Florida? Sure I guess… Missouri v. Kansas? That isn’t making the top ten best rivalry list. Nova v. St. Joe’s? Nah player. Anyway, I digress.


And I know you all hate it, but as far as UvT is concerned, Duke will always be Us and Carolina will always be Them. Does it get better than this? Duke is #2, Carolina is #3, these are two of the best teams in the nation, they have a history of putting on a great game, oh yeah, and starting point guard Ty Lawson is hurt…


Go Duke.

Just kidding, we’d rather beat them at full strength just to remove all the excuses. We need Paulus, Demarcus, and Henderson to bring their “A” game tonight if we are going to win this one. This is going to be a true battle of backcourt versus front court as the Duke guards are going to be scrapping with the big boys all night.


You know Psycho T is going to try to be the hero. Last time he tried that, he ended up looking like this:


Then he ended up looking like this:


Oh yeah, you know that the Dean Dome faithful are supposed to be a “wine and cheese” crowd. Why do they call that crowd “wine and cheese”? Well, Sam Cassell said it and he meant that the crowd was usually more full of ex-cotton and tobbacy growers and big time boosters than it is real College hoops fans. I can’t lie, they usually have their students up in the nose bleeds. At any rate, you got to remember that this is UNC, so if the crowd is wine and cheese, it’s gotta be Velveeta and Boones Farm because these people aren’t the most cultured folks you’ll ever see.


I mean, until the North came down and liberated them from themselves, their idea of a restaurant was the local Waffle House.

In the spirit of Super Tuesday, let’s count up the votes to figure out who is down with Us.


You know the Duke Blue Devil is down with us.


Duke Nukem is down with us.


Dukie from “The Wire”. Ok, I’m not trying to clown, but why does this cat look exactly like Lance Thomas in this picture? LOL….damn.


The Dukes of Hazzard. With Daisy Duke on top of that car UvT might have to do a throwback ladies post in the near future.


Finally, The Duke, John Wayne is always in our corner. In fact The Duke once said, “Life is tough, but tougher when you’re stupid”. No wonder it is so hard to be a Carolina fan.


Zeros in a Half Shell: Maryland Basketball disgrace

October 4, 2007

More evidence that Thug U lives in College Park Maryland.


Of all the scholarship players who entered the Maryland men’s basketball program between 1997 and 2000 NONE of them graduated from the University of Maryland. Maryland was the only program in the country that failed to graduate any of its recruits within six years, a NCAA statistic analysis showed today.

random_gary.jpg (Maybe Gary should concentrate more on the books and less on liquor, young/supple arse and chicken wangs)

The program’s graduation success rate, calculated by an NCAA formula, fell for the third straight year at a time when graduation rates are rising nationally for men’s basketball programs. The number shows that none of starters and top reserves of Maryland’s 2002 national championship team graduated within six years of entering school (Really? I thought that en route to busting caps off at the White House young Lonny Baxter would have picked up his degree in Thugology, HomoThug Anatomy or whatever it is you guys “study” at that place).


These people are very successful people,” Maryland coach Gary Williams said. “If you go to school to improve yourself economically, where have they failed (same place you have, in the classroom)? They make more than the average college graduate. Far more. If you’re judging them just based on getting a degree, then OK, they haven’t gotten a degree.”

HAAAAAAA and you wonder why his players don’t graduate. Nice attitude G. Maybe if you didn’t sit around figuring out how to improve YOURSELF economically and concentrated on what is right, which includes, but is not limited to, getting a damn college degree, your team wouldn’t be DEAD LAST in the entire nation for academic standing. I mean, you make the Maryland Football team look like, nah, forget it, they may have a better graduation rate than you, but they still look like some damn thugz….


(look at this Maryland student after a big win against Duke, these cats are animals)

I know, I know, Maryland’s academic standards are waaaaaay up. I know. I’ve heard it before. And all those rioters that burn cars, destroy property and beat the living snot out of random people are just townies from PG County looking to cause trouble. I know. But what about this riot tape from the 2002 National Championship “celebration,” looks like students to me:

Hey Murrland, you haven’t been a serious contender for the National Title since Juan and Machine Gun Lonny left. You’ve had more players arrested and suspended in the past four years than you’ve had recognized for any ACC or National Awards. Your recruits suck so much that no national recruiting analyst even takes you guys seriously (and Gtown is whoopin your candy ass in these recruiting battles every single year!!!) anymore. Your arena is a testament to your complete lack of class and Gary’s penchant for placing cash in his sweat infested grubby little pockets (and by the way, Comcast cable sucks..believe me, I have it)!!! Finally, your fans are the lowest form of humankind.


Believe me, Duke grads know this to be true because most of you miscreants end up washing our cars, mopping our floors, changing our oil, serving us our fries or receiving dollars from us at the local strip clubs.


YOU SUCK and you’ve been exposed for exactly what you are, a bunch of losers whose only delight comes from the occasional upset of a real program (with real recruits who actually graduate) like Duke, UNC, Wake, really, the entire ACC.


You’re a joke. Go back into your shell or go home and brush that tooth.. You will not make the NCAAs this year. You’re incoming class, outside of Braxton Dupree (and even he isn’t that hot) is a joke and your coach is more of a spaz than Psycho Tea.


(Stop cryin’)

To say your squad is suspect this year would be a gross understatement, hell, there isn’t one cat on the team worth a nickel except Greivius Vasquez and I’m sure yall pay him in pesos, not dollars, so I’m not even sure how that gets worked out. Enjoy the year and enjoy having had the rare distinction of being DEAD LAST in all of AMERICA in graduation rates. No child left behind? Even George Dubyah would be a genius compared to you losers. Now get back to washing my car and don’t forget wipe down my rims. You know the BMW Cabrio has a tendency to accumulate a lot of break dust, especially on the front tires.. OUT.
