Let’s all hope this doesn’t give Phil Fulmer any ideas

Alright look…I have nothing against Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and I’ll admit that this is for a great cause but I can not stop thinking that Broadway and Izzo mixed together will result in burning couches and riots.

Tickets are now on sale for Izzo Goes To Broadway, a “Broadway-style performance featuring Tom and Lupe Izzo and six accomplished Broadway performers.”  It will be held next month and proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. All Izzo wants is to be the Elaine Page of basketball.

Yo Izzo give money and ask others especially those in your profession to do the same. Just write a freaking 6 figure check (you can afford it) and spare us this torture

“Izzo Goes To Broadway was written exclusively as a mini-Broadway show telling the story of Coach Izzo’s journey from high school to Michigan State to making it to the top on Broadway. The performance features music from several Broadway standards, including 42nd Street, Cats, Chicago, The Phantom of the Opera and A Chorus Line as sung by professional Broadway performers. Among the six-member cast is one actor with 13 Broadway credits on his resume. One of the other professionals is a Lansing native who attended Waverly schools. Several of the performers are taking a break from their current Broadway roles to be a part of this special production.”

What, no Jay-Z?

Let’s pray that there isn’t dancing. I can’t wait for Pitino and Sypher in Swindler on the Roof. For the record Coach K is the lead in Durham community theater’s production of Rats.

If this works, can “Bob Knight Goes to the Psycho Ward” be far behind?

Coach K doesn’t approve of Obama’s brackets

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on March 20, 2009

Even though President Obama has a former Duke player as his personal aide, Coach K is none to happy about his bracket picks.

The president unveiled his bracket this past Wednesday and of course ESPN is making way to much of a big deal about it. As you can see here Obama has Duke losing to Pitt in the East Regional.

Coach K is not happy about this:

“Somebody said that we’re not in President Obama’s Final Four, and as much as I respect what he’s doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets,” Krzyzewski told a reporter from the Associated Press on Wednesday.

This has prompted the writing of the Coach K Haiku:

Gets every whistle
Complains like a bitch when not
Even to the Prez

In retaliation Obama has selected Dean Smith as his ambassador to Krzyzewskiville

Even though we don’t talk about political issues here at, Obama made a statement that I agree with 100%:

“It has nothing to do with McCain – I think Arizona is a great state: I love playing golf there. But hey just squeaked in based on reputation,” Obama said.

Amen to that!

Oh and Coach K I have you losing to Texas and so does the majority of the country so suck it.

Traveling defined the Duke Basketball way

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 24, 2009

For some reason a lot of people claim Duke gets preferred treatment from the officials at times. Like with this video above. Sure freshman guard Elliot Williams took a few extra steps…but 12? I’m not sure about that. I mean one can go six feet without actually dribbling the ball in less than 12 steps, right?

Some call it an “unfair advantage” and say things like this violates the “spirit of the game” but this is just basketball done the Blue Devil way. Ever watch a NBA game? You can go about 30 steps without getting called.

Besides, Tyler Hansbrough calls that “gritty”.

Honestly there’s no question he traveled however give the guy some credit, he’s bringing back the moonwalk.

Well…that didn’t last long (I love it when I’m right)

Wake Forest students rush the floor after defeating Duke 01/28/09

Just like I said yesterday…Duke would fall in a relative short time after achieving the #1 ranking in NCAA basketball. I just finished watching Wake Forest beat Duke in what was perhaps the best game I’ve seen all season.

The final score was 70-68 and the Wake Forest student section reminds me of that chubby girl in that Blind Melon video…God I hate that song.

Lock up the women and children, Duke is #1 again & Jay Bilas approves

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on January 27, 2009


Yes, it’s that time again. It’s time for Duke to be #1 in the polls and the imminent fall from grace is near. For the time being maybe, just maybe, Duke can get some respect from Dick Vitale. *Sarcasm*

The reason I’m writing about Duke is to help keep Coach K from whining. See when they were ranked #2 Coach K whined about not being recognized for being the #2 team in the country. (For the record I like Coach K even though he has the kind of face that begs to be punched. but I hate Duke)

“I don’t even think it was mentioned in the newspapers here that we were No. 2 in the polls,” he said to reporters recently … “I know it’s not that big here,” he said of Duke’s success, “but it’s pretty damn good. So when this group makes No. 2, it’s a new group, they should be celebrated for doing something good.”

Sure we’ve all traveled down this path before. In the ’08 season Duke went 22-1 before they hit a bad stretch of loses in February and March. Before that in ’07 Duke started out 13-1 and then the season fell apart. In 2006 (the last time they ranked #1) Duke was on fire going a blistering 27-1 then they met LSU and that was that.

So maybe this Duke team is different or maybe not so please forgive me for having doubts Coach K. After all it feels like we have all seen this movie before.

Another Reason as to why Duke & ESPN Sucks

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 29, 2008

Duke sucks because they’re Duke, that’s a given. However now Duke really sucks because their mascot can’t surf. Smokey can surf ask anyone.



I’m surprised Mike Patrick didn’t go on a 10-minute diatribe about how the Duke mascot is SO much better than all the other mascots, and that when he comes back he’ll be twice as strong as before under the guidance of Coach K. We all know Dick Vitale would have.

In a related note, Coach K said in his weekly radio show that the Duke Blue Devil has been fan surfing for the past 3 weeks with that sprained knee, but unlike “other” schools, he doesn’t like to make those injuries public.
