Duke Still Thinks They Can Win The Tournament

The fast paced March Madness Tournament has taken flight once again, and like every year upsets have already taken place. One of the biggest upset so far has to be Dukes lose to a unknown team, Mercer.

Devastated fans faces flooded the television as Duke fell short to a team that shouldn’t have been a challenge at all to the historic men’s basketball team. Outraged and upset dukes head coach is still keeping a positive attitude, and is taking the loss as a learning experience.

“We got beat fair, and square we didn’t play our best, but that’s no excuse” said Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski

“You learn from this games how to better your team, and come out fighting for the next round of the tournament, are eyes are still set on winning this thing”

Confused by this statement we asked Krzyzewski what he meant exactly.

“Well we lost one, but are journey doesn’t end here we are waiting to see who we play next, and we will prepare for that team. Our goal is the sweet 16, then elite 8, final four, and then the whole kit and caboodle.”

We then continued to remind Krzyzewski that the tournament was a single elimination style, and that Duke was done until next year.

“What!? I thought it was double elimination!” said the coach


“Aww, you have to be f**king kidding me! I’ve been getting this kids fired up for next week. So we are done?”

We conituned to tell the coach that he has to be kidding, as this isn’t his first appearance in the tourney, and that it has been run the same way for years.

“You know the years of coaching may have gotten to my head, and it slipped my mind. But like I said we will be back next week stronger”

Coach Krzyzewski Urged To Retire By Donors After Racist Remarks Toward Mercer Player

If losing to Mercer wasn’t bad enough, it just got worse for Duke. Evidently no one thought to watch out for possible rash actions by people affiliated with the Blue Devils, especially the head coach. I guess the next time they lose to a school that is only known for…. well nothing really, they will monitor the team’s online activities more closely afterward.

According to online witnesses, at about 12:15 AM on Friday night, a disturbing comment popped up on the YouTube video of Mercer guard, Kevin Canevari, dancing the “Nae Nae”. Now, for folks to consider a YouTube comment disturbing, it has to be bad, as those comments usually start off insulting, then get laced with profanity, and eventually turn racist or sexist. According to YouTube user “bitches_just_wanna_have_fun”, she was really shocked to see such hatred from a commenter about a fun-filled athlete celebration video.

Apparently a well-known hacker figured out the IP address of the commenter and low and behold it was coach Mike Krzyzewski. Coach K apparently thought he could remain anonymous, just by using a different user name. He is not a tech savvy teenager after all. We cannot share the exact comment in this article for fear of offending too many readers. But Coach K basically threatened to physically harm the Mercer player / dancer, Canevari, as well as immediate members of his family. Coach K went on to make several racist remarks because he apparently did not bother to watch the video and assumed the dance celebration was done by a black player? Krzyzewski, after being found out, said the only reason for the racist references were because he thought that was a prerequisite for posting a comment on YouTube.

This rumor of donors urging Coach Krzyzewski to step down after this embarrassing online incident will not go away. It is hard to imagine Duke losing their head basketball coach over a stupid YouTube video. But Duke has lost in the 1st round of the NCAA tournament twice in three years. So I guess anything is possible. Check out the video that started all this drama.
