Come on Seth, there’s plenty Duke Haters these days why throw fuel on their fake fire!

This podcast has the potential to be known as the very best College MBB podcast in my opinion as I respected both Dan & Seth wealth of knowledge for the game we love.
However, my rating is much lower than I’d prefer to give simply due to Seth’s increasing attempts to be an antagonist for ESPN (among other less respected morons) in attempt to get a reaction or create controversy even when its unmerited. Your absurd attempt on the 5/12 podcast relating to Zion’s “lawsuit” was the most uninformed take on the actual case that I’ve heard yet based on the facts involved. Just another shameful attempt Duke fans are accustomed to hearing from haters but expect a professional like you to base your comments on facts knowing how Coach K has always chose to run his program even before the wins or top recruits & Duke’s constant focus on doing what’s right, not what’s easy! Clearly there was enough factual information out when the podcast was released to let you know Zion’s case from this unknown bloodsucking “sports agent” who has never represented any nba player ever but jumped at the chance to take advantage of an 18 year old kid she viewed as a cash cow without his family having any legal representation. This professional leach attempted to lock Zion up on a lifetime agreement which will be made null /void since she did so outside mandatory requirements from the State that sports agents must complete prior to approaching a kid, his family or in her case Zion’s high school friend after Zion was already in school @ Duke. So, rather than help provide some clarity on a unfortunate matter by sharing the facts of the case or expose the fake nba agent’s desperate attempt to keep her golden egg or make desperate inquiries to help leverage this young man who’s been nothing but a shinning example of the perfect role model but all he gets in return is shade instead of directly questioning this salty former agents integrity coming out of nowhere to approach a kid & his family without revealing her fangs & claws. Seth don’t sacrifice your legacy just to align yourself with all the haters we hear from daily anyhow, so take the right stand as a tough guy you pretend to be instead of creating unwarranted speculation on a young man or the Duke program. “As the saying goes the hate us because the ain’t us” which has always been related to our winning %, never some clandestine shady recruiting related matters. By asserting Duke’s image could potentially be damaged by false assertions or misinformation usually as a result of some haters underhanded tactics or people attempting to undermine the program is sickening. Especially when Coach K publicly has always tried to help the kids first (regardless of the school they attend) and very early on encouraged the NCAA to reconsider ways less fortunate scholar athletes could benefit from the use of their own likeness or image. Think about the reason Duke can’t even consider participating in these type scandals bc it’s simply the same reasons schools like Harvard, Yale or a Stanford must hold itself to the highest possible standards. Despite Coach K & Duke doing everything they can to completely transparent & operate beyond reproach false narratives, misinformation or even lies continue while you’re throwing more fuel on the arsons fire. Duke has no shortage of qualified legal professional guidance as their Law School mirrors their MBB dominance so they have more resources than most school to ensure they stay in compliance.
As a die hard Duke fan for 45 years I’ll also correct Seth obvious biased comment by letting him clearly know the vast majority of Duke Fans have never flown around in private jets but it doesn’t mean we can’t recognize our many haters or our sustained excellence Duke clearly exemplifies in academics, ethics, leadership & yes, MBB .
Seth, the real question for you is “why you didn’t you make assumptions or implications like you did with with Zion /Duke during the UNC Tarheel’s FAKE CLASSES SCANDEL originally designed to help qualify certain student athletes? Especialy considering that situation was based on facts exposed by a former Tarheel mbb player who admitted unc designed & offered the fake classes initially for student athletes (even though other students were also allowed to take the fake classes.....like that helps justify the issue or make it less serious). Perhaps you just chose to stay silent on a real case or maybe just refused to rush toward a quick judgement based on facts you ignored just like the ncaa said it was out of their jurisdiction since the unethical practice for student athletes were being used by regular students hoping to boost their GPA.
Your Coach Cal & UK comments attempting to even try to compare them to Duke & Coach K was a joke at best. The guy who loves taking shots at Duke & Coach K while our leader takes the high road (above cal) for reasons we all clearly are aware ....who knows maybe you have no issue with Cal’s past NCAA infractions or UK’s past as well or maybe you have no issues with student athletes & regular students taking fake classes?! For the record, Coach K did 1&done first BEFORE Calipari which I assumed everyone knew outside KY so stop changing another narrative discrediting Coach K , Duke or our kids.
Personally, Dan gets overly criticized at times but at least his comments have some merit or basis of reality instead of throwing shade to the Duke hater masses or helping spread their misinformed propaganda rather than appreciating the program Duke has been the past 45 years.
Personally, I still remember being that underdog to most ACC teams. Observed every game, radio broadcast or book from Coach K and watching him elevate the Blue Devil program from the days when Duke wins were never a given.... unlike my many playground fights vs various tarheels on the regular basis being outnumbered 35-1 growing up.

My favorite college hoops pod

As they say, if you’ve got haters you’re doing something right. These two might not be for everybody, but I think they’re the best in the business when it comes to college hoops. Good dudes, good coaches and a lot of fun to hear every week. Andy Katz was great but Dakich has been awesome!
