Deviled Eggs 4/4/11

The Blue Devil is cooking up Rivers-related tape headbands for next year. (courtesy of DukeBluePlanet.com)

1. 2011 commitments play in McDonald’s game, talk smack with UNC recruits

Austin Rivers, Quinn Cook and Marshall Plumlee suited up in those classic golden arched jerseys and put up some solid numbers. Cook and Rivers each had 14 points and MP3 finished with 5 points and 7 boards. Our real question, however, is what is with Khem Birch’s long sleeve t-shirt?

2. Jalen Rose follows up “Uncle Tom” comments with another controversy

Former Michigan and NBA star Jalen Rose just can’t stay out of the news. This time it’s a DUI! And now he has been pulled off the air by his employer, ESPN. Wow, and to think I once owned his Pacers jersey and wore it with pride…

3. Duke’s class of 2015 Crazies are ready for the Gothic Wonderland!

We can’t wait to be joined in Cameron by some of the over 3,000 new members* of the undergraduate Duke community. If you are one of the lucky few, congratulations. It’s getting harder and harder to get into this school. Over 29,000 applied for the spots.

(*Ed. note: Only about 1,700 students end up matriculating to Duke every year. Didn’t really think that one through…)

4. Laettner wants to coach

Christian Laettner, perhaps Duke’s most decorated player, wants back in the college game, this time as a coach. Would you take a chance of #32, who has little coaching experience? I would if he could teach me his swagger.

5. Al Featherston on the next year in Duke hoops

The always on point Al Featherston discusses what we can expect from our Blue Devils next year based on what little information we have now.

6. Brand, Collins and the 76ers are back in the playoffs

Congratulations to Elton Brand, who came back from a rough injury to help the 76ers reach the playoffs in the hyper-competitive Eastern Conference. Coach Doug Collins–father of Duke assistant Chris–has pieced together an overachieving team in his first year at the helm of the formerly great Philly phranchise. Good luck!

Enjoy All-American Nolan Smith’s “takeover mode,” another great video from DukeBluePlanet. Apologies to Nolan for not picking up the Naismith Award (it went, predictably, to Jimmer). You’re always number 1 in our hearts. And minds, since you’re a better player than Jimmer. #fact

    3700 people are accepted but approximately 1600 peeps matriculate yearly into this fine institution as undergraduates.

    Owning a Jalen Rose Pacers jersey is pretty ironic, brah.

    Good point, VIJ. I lost my mind on that idea. Been too long since I was staring down Guttentag I guess.

    Yeah, I wore that jersey like every day. It said Rose, but it smelled like little kid BO.

    Oh and the Pac-10 is not where it’s at.
