A Solid Look At Duke’s Upcoming Football Season

A Solid Look At Duke’s Upcoming Football Season

Whatever happens, Duke football is a legitimate program now. Our SBN colleague Bill Connelly has a nice preview of 2019 Duke football and while Duke has some challenges, he’s really complimentary about how brilliantly David Cutcliffe has transformed the program from sad sack to a legitimate, annual bowl contender. We’ve seen some amazing things in Duke athletics but we can’t think of anything to top it.

Check Out How Much UK Spends On Recruiting

Check Out How Much UK Spends On Recruiting

How could they cut this? It’s called commercial. If you think you had any idea what recruiting costs, guess again...at least at Kentucky anyway. John Calipari and staff spent $1.46 million on recruiting between 2016-2019, including a private flight to Spartanburg to recruit Zion Williamson that cost $8,345.90 dollars round trip. Just for comparison, American makes the same flight nonstop for $318. We can understand why coaches would like to fly private. You cut down on wasted time, you get in and out and you make a big impression. Plus you get to skip a lot of the security rigamarole....

How Would Cam Reddish Look In A Bulls Jersey?

How Would Cam Reddish Look In A Bulls Jersey?

He would bring a great package of skills to that team Chicago really needs a point guard and if they had done better in the draft lottery might have pursued Ja Morant. That’s out though, so will they settle for an average point guard? Or will they try for someone else and come back for a PG later? If so, one good candidate may be Cam Reddish. Not only is he underrated offensively, but he can certainly handle point guard at least on a backup basis. Why not? He could be a great answer for the Bulls.

Matthew Hurt On What Drew Him To Duke

Matthew Hurt On What Drew Him To Duke

The Minnesotan pipeline still flows to Durham Here’s a nice piece on Matthew Hurt and what drew him to Duke: basically having the freedom to grow as a player. Hurt is an outstanding shooter and Duke sold him on the idea of position less basketball. He also likes the idea of playing with Tre Jones: “Just his vision, his passing and how he plays defense. I think he’s the best point guard, defensively last year and this year he will be, too. Playing with a point guard like that will benefit me.” It would benefit pretty much anybody.

Duke Basketball: Incoming freshman makes sacrilegious choice

Latest Mock Draft Shows Some Movement

Latest Mock Draft Shows Some Movement

The top three are probably set but some guys are moving up and others down. The mock drafts continue as the NBA Draft approaches and while nothing has changed in the top three, USA Today sees things shaking out differently than some of the earlier mock drafts we’ve seen. The top three here are still Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and RJ Barrett, so let’s start after that. #4 sees Virginia’s De’Andre Hunter going to the LA Clippers, UNC’s Coby White going to Chicago at #7, Cam Reddish to Hotlanta at #8, Tar Heel Nassir Little to Minnesota and bone chilling cold at #11, Hokie Nickeil...

Duke Women’s Golf Is Golden Again

Duke Women’s Golf Is Golden Again

Yet another national championship. In 1986, Duke basketball had the best chance it had had in years to win the national championship. It fell to Denny Crum’s Louisville team of course - Coach Crum just had a stroke and we send him our best wishes for a full and speedy recovery - and life went on as normal because at that point, Duke didn’t win national championships. In anything. That started to change that same year when the soccer team won the national championship in December. Current basketball walk-on Mike Buckmire’s dad (also Michael) was on that team. It was a huge deal in...

A Look At Tre Jones As An NBA Point Guard

A Look At Tre Jones As An NBA Point Guard

Underestimate him at your own peril Of course Tre Jones decided to pass on this year’s draft, but this site looks at him as a possible fit for the Chicago Bulls in next year’s draft. The analysis falls back on the same basic thing: that he needs to improve his shooting. Well yes he does. However, he’s a brilliant defender and runs his team well. Everyone has weaknesses. We don’t think it’s something that insurmountable and even if it is, lots of guys can shoot. We saw him do some incredible stuff on defense this year. It was like watching special forces if special forces was in...

Zion Williamson On Why He Signs Autographs

Zion Williamson On Why He Signs Autographs

At least for kids. Grownups, you’re on your own. One of the things we’ve really enjoyed about Zion Williamson being at Duke is that he’s just a decent kid. So take this article about him asking for autographs as a kid. Turns out John Wall and potential (but unlikely) teammate Anthony Davis turned him down. So he says he never turns down little kids because of how that made him feel. On the bright side, it’d be fun if, sometime soon, he either blocked a shot or dunked on one of those guys and then said something like “no you can’t have my damn autograph!” If you're going to...
