It's Not Traveling Unless Duke Says It's Traveling

I don't understand why people think that Duke gets special treatment in the college basketball world. Are they trying to say that another school wouldn't get way with 12 steps between each dribble?

Yes, freshman guard Elliot Williams managed to move back about six feet without actually bouncing the basketball he was carrying, but that doesn't mean there is some sort of national conspiracy to favor the Blue Devils in every aspect of the game. Frankly, I thought traveling rules had taken off the books years ago, but apparently all those mindless Duke haters see the fact that no whistle was called here as some sort of "unfair advantage" that violates the "spirit of the game" and "spits on the grave of Pete Maravich."


That's just basketball the Coach K way!
