Hello BR world I'm new here so I will keep this first article short and sweet. We all know and debate about the transfer problem at Duke University for some time now and I really believe that I have found the problem. To me I place the blame smack dead on Coach K. His theory is that while you are a freshman you are not really ready to perform major minutes for his system and thats a load of U KNOW WHAT! Everyone makes mistakes and go through things no matter what grade you are so I don't believe that one bit. Coach K has began to become into a double standard and i will give you a few examples. 1) Miles Plumlee gets into the game, a good three minutes go by, Smith drives the basket and throws an ill advised pass, Plumlee can't handle it, BRRRRRRRMP! SUBBBBBBBBB! Guess who sit????? 2) Mason Plumlee gets in the game plays well set screen and then seals his man right on the corner block. Easy play right? The ball never gets to him Singler takes a bad shot. The next time up the floor Miles sets another screen and then pops, this time they pass him the ball at the top of the key????????? huh?? He tries to make a move but misses the finish BRRRRRRRMP! SUBBBBB!!! 3) Dawkins gets in he nevers gets the ball! three staight times down the court it Sheyer Smith and Singler running a three man weave! lol, the fourth time down they have problems and have to pass to D, he shoots! BRRRRRRMP! SUBBBB! 4) Kelly gets in, runs up the court but there is a foul on the play....... BRRRRMP! SUBBBBB! Now these guys do one thing and they get yanked yet the BIG three can make as many errors they like.
I watched Singler stink the whole gym up N.C State i think and he never saw the bench! He does not allow these young players to get enough time and next year they will basically be freshman again. Don't be surprised if Mason and Dawkins leave. Mason will be dominate in college mark my words but if COACH K don't get the memo it will not be at DUKE!
