Late 00's, that 05-09 period when they were wack asf while UNC won two titles
RJ Hampton went from top 5 pick to #25 pick
Let's not act like it can't go the other way
The mid 90s also
So fire him
The years he was going for 4 years guys and not the one and done talents in the mid 2000’s. Those teams were looking and even he knew it and had to change his recruiting philosophy
I was just gettin into bball at that time 96-99 i remember vividly duke use to be trash they was like the Notre dame of college ball they had great prestige of early 90s den around 96-00 those teams only had nba pros like brand,battier,maggetette & langdon was the best shooter in dukes history til 02 whenn jj came on campus. I use to think only rich kids nerds go to duke it was mind blowing to everybody when Shawn dockery was goin there his game n background wasnt meant for duke or coach k how da hell are u the best pg in the city from 98-02 end up at duke knowing how the type of players coach was recruiting at dat time dats like bassy or Shaun Livingston goin to duke 2 yrs later. The best school for guards from 96-05 was uconn zona mich st kansas & uc. I think when duke started making deep tourney runs in the elite 8 n final fours thats when all the top players wanted to go to duke again.
This is the truth. NBA Scouts can track players and now go to any school or location to analyze them and aren’t just going to the same 8-10 schools they visited heavily during the 90s.
Interesting to see what happens with coaches like him if they start allowing kids to forgo the rule for one year out of High School entirely
05: 27-6, Sweet 16
06: 32-4, Sweet 16
07: 22-11, R64
08: 28-7, R32
09: 30-7, Sweet 16
Add in 2010 and they won it all
If you're directly comparing to Carolina then yeah but overall 3 Sweet 16s in 5 years isn't bad, coaches aren't hitting the Final Four annually.
Alot of those type players from the city n state will start staying home i see wat depaul is doin my childhood homie tim anderson is bout to start a trend of all city kids staying home a new arena plus upgraded facilities why would go to Kentucky kansas ucla? U would only go there based on the prestige n free gear ie oregon unc. We might see nyc basketball back in spotlight if those kids stay in nyc n other big east schools
Izzo had a better run den coach k from 99-07
Losing 33-13 right now to a Notre Dame (1-2) at home
shyt if you a youngin & a warmer weather school offer a scholly why wouldn’t you dip ?
2 straight airballs
You're old nikka act like a bytch like Tyler Perry
You caught him down in Memphis cheating like Calipari
