Duke Upset By Mercer, Is Overrated And Has A Bad Coach (VIDEO And Stats)

  • Matt Rudnitsky

The 2014 NCAA Tournament is great. The best. March Madness, indeed. First game today? 14-seed Mercer vs. 3-seed Duke. 13-point underdogs.

Mercer won, 78-71, despite ceding 16 offensive rebounds and 15 3-pointers.

In the postgame press conference, America had one thing to say.

“Shut up, Duke.” – America

Here’s a supercut of the final 1:30, via our Jake O’Donnell.


The loss makes you think… haven’t the Blue Devils been really shitty in recent NCAA Tournaments? Besides their 2010 title, these are their results: 1st-round loss to Mercer, Elite 8, 1st-round loss to Lehigh, Sweet 16, Sweet 16, second-round loss, first-round loss, Sweet 16, Sweet 16. That goes back to 2005.

So, from 2005-2014… one national championship, and ZERO additional Final Fours. Just one Elite 8. With all of the talent and resources in the world.

I’m obviously trolling by calling Coach K a bad coach, but c’mon. Stop acting like he’s God. He’s not God. He gets great players and underachieves with them. He’s 8-14-1 against-the-spread in the NCAA Tournament since 2005, 3-12 ATS in the last seven ACC Tournaments.

Dook sucks and is overrated and GOODBYE WE ARE ALL MERCER BEARS!
