Duke Sucks

Duke lost yesterday to Virginia Tech of all schools, as Nelson Muntz would say HA HA! This has been a great week of college basketball, two schools I can't stand Kentucky and Duke have both lost. The bad part has been the continual downward spiral that Michigan is taking, hopefully getting Horton back on Sunday against IU and it being the game that Glen Rice gets his jersey retired gets the team up and can get back in the W column. I know a lot of fans have written the season off, as I have but I still have hope that we can pick up a few more W's and get into the NIT. Next year, barring another year of injury after injury, we should be back and we will be a load to handle. Sweet 16 or bust next year with a full team where we don't have to play 3 walk-ons a game.

Hockey's got a couple big weekends left against Notre Dame and Bowling Green, we're up 1 point on Ohio St so we need to sweep both of them so we can win the regular season title and hopefully put together a nice run to end the season so we can get put in the Midwest Regional.

All-Star Weekend, hope LeBron decides to dunk, it would be sweet, but if not with the current field of Amare Stoudamire, Josh Smith of Atlanta, J.R. Smith and Chris Andersen of New Orleans, I'm picking J.R. Smith. What I've seen of him is impressive dunk wise. The other three are taller, and more power dunkers. If not J.R. I'm expecting his teammate Chris "The Birdman" Andersen, he did pretty well at last years dunk contest but got screwed in the judging. Either way I expect the Dunk Contest Trophy to head to New Orleans, they need something good to happen there considering how bad their team is.
