Add another example to the list of reasons that people (including me) can't stand Duke.

.....and UNC for that matter.

UNC engaged in mass academic fraud and nothing has happened to them. How is that relevant to Duke?

People here are acting like 1) Coach K has a bad team this year and might want to miss the season (very false) and/or 2) somehow this is similar to UNC or Lville (let's throw in Cuse in there too) where the NCAA doesn't deal with infractions properly OR takes into account missed games due to suspension rather than....health.

In 35+ years the man has had 2 in-season operations, and this is some sort of conspiracy? Wow...

I took the line about not having a good team as a joke or "tongue in cheek" reference to the last time this happened when he had a "horrible" team and did not come back after surgery. Same for the comments regarding him not expecting to win many games over the next month.(he has a very talented team).

As for as the post regarding "this is one of the reason I hate (or dislike Duke) ", the posting responded to the comment about the Selection Committee taken into account the fact that Coach K missed games. That is more in line with the perception that certain programs always get the benefit of the doubt. This does not necessarily relate to violations or misconduct, either proven or alleged by other programs mentioned (Ville, UNC and Cuse) who many feel get preferential treatment in the media, on the court and in some cases, the NCAA itself.

You could be right, and my bad if so, but between Grayson's indefinite suspension and their recent loss to VT without him, I thought the implication was that he'd miss the month riding out a less than stellar performance while Grayson sits out, Giles still acclimating, etc.

I just hate any comparison which suggests similarities between Duke and UNC...

But he can't deny it as he is the one who reinstated him and he did it prior to taking his leave of absence.

Damn, I thought he started his leave after last weekends game. The first article I read which was probably rushed out did not mention whose decision it was to reinstate him nor did it remind me that K hadn't started his leave yet. Oh well.

PS indefinite isn't a very long time apparently but who's surprised, especially given the fact that K is taking this leave due to issues with his spine.
