    How do you see it playing out? Looks like a pretty good match-up. Wouldn't be surprised to see the Cards take this one, but who knows. Weird season.

    I can't put my finger on it, but something about this game reminds me of airbrushed tattoos and funnel cakes.

    Since we're all ready OT, Funnel cakes are synonymous with Kings Island for me.

    ...as always with this matchup, I root for the arena to fall into a sinkhole.

    Should be a good game. First Gameday of the year, correct? I normally cheer for Duke in this game but I need Louisville to do better since it will help our resume.

    Louisville is a bat signal for big blew.
    Afterall, they do play in the SEC.
    Spring football is more important to 12 of the 14 SEC schools than basketball.

    Duke only loses to shitty teams so they should win. They seem to get up for big games and sleepwalk through the shitty ones. Of course they're losing to Clemson as I type this.

    Every time I watched Duke poor Javin gets posterized. He's made a good career of it at Duke.

    .....as opposed to losing to someone like Minnesota in the first round?

    Good God, you are truly DUH-Ville's Village Idiot.

    1. well when you are consistently 1-3 seed, odds are if you lose it is gonna be to a lower seed.

    2. Minnesota was what, a 10 seed? UL a 7 or something? Laughing

    Having not watched Duke but in brief stints all year I suspect much will hinge on:

    1. Jordan Nwora...does he give you the UK game production, or the production we saw against FSU and in South Bend. If it's the UK version this one is over early.

    2. Louisville productivity from the 5 spot vs. Vernon Carey...Enoch has been playing under the weather for three straight, but Malik Williams has picked up some of the slack. Unlike Nwora...if they give the productivity of the Kentucky game where they saddled Kentucky's 4's and 5's with fouls; Duke has struck me the last decade plus as practically conceding the layup on post entries (to stay out of foul trouble) when we have played them.

    3. The backcourts: Jones is Duke's racecar driver and Louisville seems to be settling on Kimball as the primary ballhandler with David Johnson finally rounding into a contributing role. The impact is as much on the defensive end because Johnson has the length missing against UK and FSU in particular and was necessary last night. He turns the ball over in the half court a little much, but he gives them a physical presence in the backcourt lacking since Donovan Mitchell's departure to the NBA.

    I actually expect a good game. Duke is hurting after a loss and they will be ready. UL is a good team with more skill than most give them credit for having.

    UL went into South Bend and came out a winner. No marginal team ever does that.

    Would be great if we could watch a real game. Instead gotta watch the cayuts and listen to Vitale make puns.

    Just brutally bad offense (and great defense from Louisville)
