Melody Sports 1st Edition – Duke and The NCAA

“Coach K The Blue Devil?”

The Indianapolis Star newspaper apologized to Duke authorities after this Friday’s edition. The newspaper portrayed Duke’s Coach K doodled as the devil. The article was about “how most NCAA fans strongly dislike Duke’s program even when they weren’t in the 2010 NCAA championships.” To me, as not receiving the full story of how this happened from ESPN reporters, this seems as someone working within the Star newspaper editing team messed around with the first copy, doodling to his enemy of the court. Then without realizing he may have given it to the main copier where the 30,000 newspapers were distributed state wide through Indianapolis with “Coach K, The Blue Devil”.

Coach K responds to the paper “It is what it is. It’s very juvenile, we have great kids who go to school, who graduate. If we’re going to be despised or hated by anybody because we go to school and we want to win, you know what, that’s your problem. Then you have a problem, because we’re going to go to school and we’re going to try to win. You don’t like it? Keep drawing pictures. Just keep drawing pictures. Try to do them a little bit better than that, though.”

2010 NCCA Basketball – Duke vs West Virginia this Saturday at 8:45 pm ET, CBS.

    I personally think Duke is a good, young team but strongly hated because there last seasons weren’t to good for them, and the fact they are scattered through North Carolina by other state teams such as North Carolina State University (NCSU) and University of North Carolina (UNC). What do you think of this paper?

    Seems like an interesting series! I am not big into sports, but this is cool! 🙂 Added you as an author for MayanksBlog.com, if you are still interested in that Friday thing. I know that you have school and sports, so if you lose interest I don’t mind. 😉

    I have no idea what you are talking about! Haha. In Australia, we’re not really into Basketball (that is what you’re talking about, right?)… we’re more AFL/Cricket people here.
    Then again, I’m not really a sports watcher at all!

      Maya: xD Thanks, but I didn’t make it.

      Cool, and it’s ok. I’ll post every Friday I can. 😀

      Squishy: Oh sorry, next post will be something about Cricket. (What’s cricket, the chirping annoying bug? And what’s AFL?) And yes, this is basketball. It’s the team Duke who is going against Butler for the national basketball champs. 😀

    Hey, I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say GREAT blog!…..I”ll be checking in on a regularly now….Keep up the good work! 🙂

    Haha, well I probably wouldn’t know much of what you were talking about regardless of which sport you chose!
    Cricket – you know, the one with the bats and the white uniforms and the long pitch and the red ball (well, the uniforms and ball colour change depending on the type of game, but I’m not much use there, so I’ll stick to what I know)…
    AFL – Australian Football League…there are three big posts and the teams have a football like ball (I think?)and they try and get it through the posts for differing amounts of points…and they have to bounce the ball as they run…

    As I said, I’ll stick to what I know and steer clear of this sports buisness!

      Fausto: Nice try, spam is bad you idiot. 😉

      Squishy: Ok, cricket sounds a lot like American baseball. And your AFL has a different shaped football? And what’s with the three posts? 😆 Australia is confusing me.
