Were people on here legitimately pulling for Duke today?

Just because the Kansas coach acted mildly arrogant after the win? Really? Have you forgotten the decades or Duke arrogance that has ruled over the ACC? The way Coach K chides and works the refs at every opportunity? The way they preach the "brotherhood" to recruits while moving strictly to one and done? What about the infamous clock operator fiasco in Cameron?

Duke basketball has aggrieved Clemson more than Kansas or Bill Self ever could. Nobody should have been upset to see Duke lose today.

I was pulling for Kansas. If we're gonna get beat, I'd prefer it be by the champs.

As for Duke, I pull for the Chinese if they play Duke.

Not to mention the way that Ratface curses the officials and his players, all game. (He intimidates the ACC officials to make sure he gets the calls that break their games open for the Puke wins. Ratface is almost as bad as the UNCheats; of course, as far as we know, he hasn't lied (yet) about not knowing that his players have no classes. So, maybe Ratface is better than Ole Roy?)


I was. I typically cheer for the ACC, except for UNC.

I respect Duke and Coach K. He has built a heck of a program, his players play hard, and he is always classy in victory and defeat. He goes out of his way to be complimentary of our coach and our team, and I appreciate that. Contrast that with ###### bags like Bill Self, who didn't say anything nice about us after the game but instead blamed his own team. Classy, Bill.

Brad Brownell: all-time winningest coach in Clemson men's basketball history, and only coach to beat North Carolina in Chapel Hill.


I respect Coach K. Duke plays great basketball.

I used to kind of pull for them after Clemson when they were going to the Final Four as constant underdogs around 1989 before their first pair of championships. Especially during the 4 year era, before the 1 and done trend. Unfortunately, that is just the way things are now. Sure, I didn't like the extra clock time, ref fiasco at Cameron, or the media "love ins" during the early 2000's. But Coach K and his assistants coach good basketball, and they recruit good and hardworking kids for the most part. Watching them play motion offense and half court during that era was a thing of beauty.

Just wondering. Are we supposed to think that any of the-one-and-done kids go to class in the second semester?
It sure would be an advantage: more time to rest; no reason to read; no papers to turn-in; no tests to prepare for; more shoot-around time; etc.
Seems like a huge (unfair) advantage over teams with juniors and seniors!

I would prefer Duke to have won.

I prefer the cash for Clemson.

Screw the ACC. Duke can just DIAF.

I don't like Duke or Kansas.

I will take the cash always and what is best for Clemson.

Duke beat UNC. The whole Duke UNC thing gets old though kind of like Yankees Red Sox.

The hate for Coach K by our fans reminds me of Coots being envious of Dabo.

I fully agree. If coach K were our coach, he would be beloved.


No. Not me.***

Whatever BS had to say (or didn’t here) should have no bearing on who to pull for. Decades of ref intimidation, phantom fouls and blatant protection of the ACC brand at our expense should be enough to not pull for those entitled elitist. God bless you if you did though.

Yes I surely was. Because of Duke's studies on a new treatment for the Hep C virus, I'm alive and have been completely cured of the Hep C virus. Pulling for them to win a Basketball game if it's not against us is the least I can do. Gooo Duke!!!

I did but only because I had them winning the NC in my work pool. They choked down the stretch and now I’m out so back to wishing they lose every game next year.


No, I was pulling for Duke because I had a growler on the line

And I wish Brad would work the refs more .
I don’t like Duke BBall one bit but coach K is a good Coach and a class act.

Not me! If Duke was playing the devil, I'd be pulling for old Lucifer. I'll never pull for Duke, North Carolina or South Carolina in any sport. I'd like to see all three lose or tie every game they play. But then, that's just me. Go Tigers!

I was hoping both would lose.

Once, again, it would have been wonderful if BSelf could have lost to our Tigers on a last second shot and if old Ratface had been thrown out of the Syracuse for abusing the officials (while the Orange won by 30).
Life is good in my alternative universe.
