    Did I just hear the interviewer say our building is weird..?

    Uhh, I would like to apologize to CTC for ever questioning his in-game management, because last night I saw Roy Williams completely soil himself!

  • GaHoosier

    WOW.  UNC gave that game away!

    Yeah, and unfortunately it was TZ that is memorialized in the highlight reel of great UNC/Duke finishes. One of the few times I ever agree with Doug Gottlieb, but you gotta have your hands up on D in that position, Tyler.

  • Kewaynes

    For sure. Knowing the type of player Austin Rivers is I think you have to make him put it on the floor and take a 2 pointer that at least he can’t beat you with.

  • sycamorehoosier

    My high school is from the same conference as Leonards, (Robinson and Paris).  I didn’t like him in high school… His attitude is horrible… its been that way for awhile… Illinois fans in my area even say so.  I’m amazed that they let him speak into a microphone. 

  • sycamorehoosier

    Did that question come from the local channel 3 CBS news? Shouldn’t be surprising…

    “We have the tools and we have the players to win we just have to get it done”…Myles Leonard.

    What, no mention of his coach and how his coaches have showed them what they need to do to be able to win the game. I guess he maybe considers Brucey the Whiner a “tool”. Never thought I would agree with this guy about something cause Brucey is definitely a tool.

    Oh yea, Myles my man, you are maybe the same number of years old as CZ for a small part of one year but you have been playing at this level a full year more than him. Already making excuses ?

    Yeah, I noticed he that, he sure seemed down.  He doesn’t come across as a punk, he’s well spoken and all but he doesn’t have that spark.  I’m not going to give him any motivation for tonight so I will just leave it at that.

    I really felt bad for the kid. Missing 2 FT’s, knocking in that 3 pointer which was just bizarre! Then he just had to make Rivers move on that shot. They never should have switched on that screen.

    But you guys know me, I think Roy was the problem. They did not get a shot off in the last 4 possessions and never challenged the three’s.

    And by the way Duke got away with a 4 step travel. So let’s go ahead and knock the officials.

    Hey, at least I’m consistent.

     That’s “Coach” Crean to you son. Not “Crean” Show some respect Leonard!

    also, one of the Plumlees got away with a blatant foul on Zeller on that accidental tip in play.  Just shoved him in the back when he went up for the ball which knocked him off balance causing him to lose control of the ball.

  • GaHoosier

    Harsh words from Meyers Leonard, “I never wanted to go there!”

    So Leonard here are some harsh words back, “I never wanted YOU here either!  I am so happy that we got the Big Z”

    the 3 pointer shot was scored as a 2, fyi.  I have stated on here that ole Roy is not a great coach , however he is good.  Stellar game to watch, Duke down 8 with less than 2 minutes on the road against all the UNC NBA 1st rounders and they win!!!   WOW!!!

  • Geoff_85

    Not to mention that shot that Rivers hit was Duke’s game all night — step back to get some space and let it go. Poor execution all game on UNC’s part or bad coaching. That one shot Rivers hit wasn’t the sole reason UNC lost, but after they’ve done it to you all game long, you’ve got to get out there and contest that shot. What was probably going through his mind was “DON’T FOUL”.

  • Geoff_85

    I used to think that when I read comments about Coach Crean on here and he is most often referred to as “CTC” but then I thought, “eh, it’s a message board” but Meyers referred to him simply as “Crean” in a press conference. Meyers, don’t make us bring the old coach back…you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.

  • Geoff_85

    Of course I’m referring to Branch McCracken. 😉

  • knuckledrager

    If you listen closely to Leonard he said: “…I always wanted to go to In…Illinois..”. Slip of the lip. I loved it. It’s at the 1:33 mark of his interview. Love it. Love it. GGGGGGgggggOOOOOooooooooo HHHHHhhhhhOOOOOOoooooooSSSSssssIIIiiiEEEEEeeeeeeRRRRRRrrrrrrrrSSSSSSsssss  

  • MillaRed

     It’s all about space when you’re blogging. CTC is just plain easier.

  • mc2030

    I can see that.  He’s seems to agitate more and more with every word…

  • InTheMtns

    Mike, the same age comment was about being the same age as Jared Sullinger, not Cody.

  • IllinoisHoosier93

    His Robinson team beat my team in sectionals. I’ve been saying it all along, this kid could be something amazing but the work ethic and the attitude are not there at all. Oh well glad to get that W.
