K Gets 903

Who knew 2011 was the Year of the Rat?

All kidding aside, we will put away snark and other assorted comments about the Evil Empire to offer congratulations to Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski on becoming men’s college basketball’s all-time NCAA wins leader with 903 career victories. K moves past his college coach, Bobby Knight, into first [...]

All jokes aside, we here at THF would like to offer our good wishes to Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski for tying Dean Smith’s career coaching record of 879 wins. Love him or hate him, there is no doubt Krzyzewski rates as one of college basketball’s all-time greats. In addition to his victories, he has four [...]

As the Dominos Fall: UNC, Duke on SEC’s “Dream List”

Could North Carolina and Duke, along with Texas and Texas A&M,  join the Southeastern Conference as the push for mega-conferences (and the subsequent implosion of college athletics as we know it) begins?

That’s SEC commissioner Mike Slive’s “dream”, according to Ken Medlin over at WRAL, who references a blog post from the Austin American-Statesman. According [...]

Yin meets Yang

“All this has happened before, and it will happen again.” — Cylon proverb from Battlestar Galactica

As the Evil Empire prepares to play for a national championship, it is easy to draw a parallel to a time not all that long ago when the roles of Duke and UNC were reversed.

The time was 1992, [...]

Dick Vitale Drops All Pretenses

Via Mr Irrelevant is this photo of the extended Vitale family in attendance at the Duke-Maryland game last night.

Now, on one hand, Vitale probably did not tell his sons to come to the game with his grandchildren decked out in Duke gear. Perhaps his sons are Duke fans and this is no different [...]

And ESPN Wonders Why People Call Them DSPN

Since UNC-Duke is less than a week away, you might be looking for something to get yourself fired up for the game.  Maybe you want to rewatch The Foul a dozen times or stare at a picture of Greg Paulus.  And if that does not do the trick then tune in to ESPN NFL Countdown [...]

Best. Practical Joke. Ever.

And that is what someone in the Cleveland Cavaliers organization did to ex-Duke player Danny Ferry. When Ferry arrived at the new Cavaliers practice facility he found this painted on his office wall.

That is awesome.

THF Top Five Stories of 2006

Yes, I really like those end of year lists. It also nice to sit back and take stock of the year that was and how I covered it as a Tar Heel fan living in North Carolina. So without further ado here are Tar Heel Fan’s top five stories.

#5. J.J. Redick and Duke favored [...]

How Bad Is It For Duke Football?

On my drive into work this morning I was listening to 620 the Bull and heard the “Duke Football Report” segment with Duke football coach Ted Roof and play-by-play man Bob Harris.  Now, it should be noted that these segments are nothing more than another outlet in the aforementioned “state run media” which all college [...]

Random Thoughts

Barry Bonds agent has indicated the embattled slugger might be interested in returning for the 2007 season. Over at ESPN several executives needed to be treated for excessive excitment over the possibilities of another full season of breaking news stories, scandal exposes, nightly highlights of his accomplishments, and plenty of “Chasing Hank Aaron” updates throughout [...]
