  1. My intent in asking the original question was to gain insight into why a top tier prep basketball player would select Duke over UK. Right now Cal is known as THE guy that can prepare you for making it to the NBA. It seems that the elite kids who have their pick of programs would want to play for Cal at UK, but clearly that is not the case, as Duke is now beating UK head to head in the recruiting battles. I am honestly wondering why these kids are picking Duke. I am not asking the question to be cute or arrogant, I am asking to gain an understanding of why these kids are not picking UK. A few of you have actually provided appropriate answers to this question, while most of you have, well...
  2. I live 20 minutes from Duke's campus and have for the past 6 years. I can assure you that I would not be in support of either of my children attending Duke when they come of age, and it has absolutely nothing to do with college basketball.
  3. What are you talking about? As I had clearly written in a previous post, I am not a big fan of basketball, and am certainly not a UK zealot. The psychiatrist in me is actually fascinated by the outrage caused by my original post. Go back and read it again. I asked a simple question... Why choose Duke over UK? And by the way, I am an employee of UNC Chapel Hill!
  4. I have no clue. My sources from the fort I used to get all of my inside scoop from have pretty much dried up. Question: if HHS plays PC do you foresee a close game or a romp?
  5. Well, I for one am looking forward to seeing how far this HHS team is going to go this offseason. Go 'Birds!
  6. Well, from what I have observed the amount of posting about HHS football actually took a dramatic dive last year, even though HHS won state. BGPers who were heavy into posting about HHS football in the past, people like leatherneck, henry521, sweeperboy, oldbird, and thunderbirds have backed off a great deal or disappeared completely in the past couple of years...
  7. Well, Duke and UK recruit players. Are you suggesting that Trinity and Highlands are recruiting kids to come to their schools for the purposes of playing football? If they are, then I would say that it would be best to pick Trinity over Highlands, just like it would be best to pick UK over Duke.
  8. Damn Guru, you're crunkin on your own site!!! Better not let a mod read what you posted.
  9. Perhaps Highlands should just pack it in and walk away after next week's game against Dixie, regardless of the outcome. Might as well accept the inevitable and move on to basketball... I think I know at least one HHS guy on BGP who would be happy doing this (hint: he typically hangs out in the high school basketball forum).
  10. But I'm not a UK basketball zealot. I don't particularly care for the sport of basketball. From my perspective, if I am a top flight prep player who wants to make it big in the NBA, I'd be picking Cal/UK every day of the week and twice on Sunday, and it surprises me that lately Cal is coming up on the short end in head to head recruiting battles against Duke. It makes me wonder if there is some other motivating factor at play, other than merely picking the program/coach that has the best track record of landing people in the pros...
  11. So, you are saying that Coach K/Duke are better than Coach Cal/UK at getting guys into the NBA at this point in time?
  12. Does HHS play Dixie next? Go 'Birds! This win moves HHS above the .500 mark for the first time all year, and assures that HHS will not finish the season with a losing record.
