Duke is everything good about college basketball and academia and life, at least that's what I'm reminded of everytime I see one of their games. It is almost too easy to root against this team. I was actually cheering them on against the turncoats of Boston College. Then I saw J.J. Redick after hitting a three. He is a tremendous shooter but as hatable a Duke player as Christian Laettner. They should go to the Final Four that is the expectation, but it would be very rewarding to see them stumble and get beat before Indianapolis.

I never get sick of this picture
