We gone meet again

It’s been more than three weeks, and I still have night mares reoccurring on the Memphis Versus Duke Game in the pre-season NIT. I can’t help it, I’m just crushed. It is nothing worse than knocking someone’s teeth out, making them cry and still having to return to the hood a looser because they got back first saying they won the fight.

The way the college basketball picture is shaping up; there is one word that I can use to adjectize it – exciting. The most exciting teams to me being Memphis, Kentucky, Florida and unfortunately Duke. I must be objective – they got the win over us. But being objective, I must also consider several other facts. Memphis is currently fifth in scoring offence behind my other home folk - Tennessee. Duke isn’t listed in the top five. Memphis is also third in rebounding with 45.4 boards per game and 17th over Duke, in 3-point shooting. Meaning, if it weren’t for the referees, the Blue Bloods would have not had a chance, especially running just seven folk against ten.

What is it about Duke and their plane blue uniforms that make the world ignore that they are truly like the Bad Seed. Not only do the men in black and white protect them, but the sports comentators do such also. When the end of the season approaches, you know the time of the conference tournaments, it will be on, for I know we gone meet them again. In the mean time, im just gonna savor the Gonzaga win and the joy of all my folk around the country calling me saying my boys ball.

Just bounced on to your blog--nice writing.

I have to disagree with you about Duke, though. it's easy to hate Duke because they are good, and it's true that the media give them positive attention. But there are reasons for that. When a school like Kentucky has an 8% graduation rate for its basketball players, Duke consistently turns out graduates closer to 80% than 8% (less in recent years due to more early outs for the NBA, sadly). It's a school with a respected, truly caring coach and a tradition of pride and excellence. Sure, there's some arrogance there, too (Laettner, Hurley, Wojo, Redick), but they can back it up.

As for me, I don't hate any team that beats one of my favorite teams. If they are better on the court that day, good for them.

If Memphis beats Duke down the road, congrats to them -- I won't hate them for it any more than a reasonable person would hate Duke, Carolina, or Southeast Podunk State for beating their team.
