    Interesting they're naming Scheyer coach-in-waiting. Probably good for the transition, but I'm surprised they didn't leave the door open to do a larger search. I expect they did whatever K told them to do.

    I presume they are setting up a chimney outside of Cameron Stadium so that the masses can wait to see the white smoke.

    Heck of a run, a bit surprised by Scheyer.
    Think K may have gone down a darker road in recruiting the last 8 - 10 years.

    I wonder if he views his team and thinks his back might hurt.

    Actually sorry to see him leave. I know he is probably tired. I don’t know about his health. But he has been coaching for a long time and put a little school like Duke on the map. He was good for college basketball.One of the best of all time. Got to give credit where credit is due.

    No one wanted to follow Dean Smith at UNC and the same is true of Coach K st Duke. They will not do ad well with the changing NBA rules and new development league where kids can earn six figures rather than going to HS

    Yeah, his tendency has been to take a long time off whenever he knows his team isn't very good.

    College Ball is definitely changing. I wonder if the transfer portal will result in a change as to the balance of power in the NCAA's. It might allow a few more teams to become more prominent.
