If only he had enough true conviction to shut his program down 5 months ago he could have prevented this young man from getting sick.

Now everyone is gonna act like they were on their way to winning the tourney and getting in the dance. Next year when they talk about Duke's tournament streak ending they'll no doubt have an * saying it was ended because of Covid. Which is more than likely exactly what coach k would've wanted if he could've planned it.........

He won't get sick. The most Covid-obsessed team in America, whose coach said it was too dangerous to play the season, then put his players out there anyway, has to take an L bc a walk-on player was Covid-positive. Play ball.

You don't become the a guy in the conversation of the GOAT college coach in ANY sport by avoiding a challenge. Coach K had Duke on a nice run and if they would have played and won today there is little doubt they would have made the tourney.

Them having to pull out has more to do with the fact that the NCAA is going to play this Tourney this year come hell or high waters, they are not taking even the smallest chance that tourney teams, which FSU most certainly is, could be exposed to a team with players that "might" have COVID. It's unfortunate for the Duke kids, but the NCAA is not going to let even a name brand like Duke mess up their cash cow this year....
