Coach K Hates Fun And Games

A wonderful thing happened in Charlottesville, Va., last night: the Virginia Cavaliers defeated No. 3 Duke, 73-68. Duke losses are always something we, united in our reasonable hatred of the Blue Devils, can collectively appreciate; that this one came against an unranked bubble team playing on its home court made… » 3/01/13 1:35pm 3/01/13 1:35pm

In 2009, Lance Thomas, then a forward for Duke (now a New Orleans Hornet), bought $97,800 worth of jewelry at Rafaello & Co. in midtown Manhattan; he paid $30,000 upfront and the store expected him to pay off the remaining balance in 15 days.

Peyton Manning Completes Throwing Drills At Duke University

It appears Peyton has been going through some throwing exercises at Duke University under the guidance of his former offensive coordinator and current Duke head coach, David Cutcliffe.

Wait, Didn't Coach K Break The All-Time Wins Record Last Season?

Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski earned what was advertised as his 903rd career victory in Madison Square Garden last night, setting a new NCAA record.

Coach K, Please Shut Up (Also: Jalen Rose Arrested For DUI)

We do some Duke-hating around these parts. And maybe a hair too much of it, if you ask no one. I mean, hey, Duke lost to VCU in 2007 in the first round, before it was cool. » 3/30/11 1:00am 3/30/11 1:00am

Let Us Rejoice In Duke's Misery

The Duke University men's basketball team has earned a special privilege in college sports and within March Madness: It will never be considered the underdog. As far as we're concerned, for as long as Coach K is patrolling the sideline and as long as his hair stays a surreal jet-black, Duke will exist solely to be… » 3/25/11 4:05pm 3/25/11 4:05pm

Watch Coach K Throw A Chair

It was senior day at Cameron Indoor Stadium last night, and the Blue Devils honored their three seniors with a 70-59 win over Clemson.

Exonerated Duke Lax Player Disputes $6.5 Million Tax Bill

The federal taxman says Reade Seligmann, he of the Duke wrongful-rape-accusation scandal, owes the IRS $6,492,377 million in income tax.
