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.”
