I moved to the Durham area at the same time you did and we are the same age. And you are right when I think back. Duke was actually looked at as an underdog or an up and comer. Winning it all back to back changed that instantly. I thought Bobby Hurley was the man.
Bobby Hurley is one of my all time favorites .

That seems presumptuous. They've swung and missed before (Matt Doherty) but got on track afterwards.
Maybe. But this feels different. No HC experience, and suddenly you're running a Blue Blood. Really? I know Davis is UNC to the core, and knows the program, but sitting in the big chair is a LOT different. Better if you cut your teeth HC at a lower tier school, make your mistakes, then come to the big boy table older and wiser. See Jeremy Pruitt.

I did . That’s the sad part. He’s not even a first round guy. I understand leaving for a lottery pick or a decent first round placement , but I do not understand leaving a big time school to play for the Sioux Falls Slapdicks at 2 pm on a Tuesday .
Same with Sharpe. Most predictions have him as a second rounder. Why go?
