Majority of people are familiar with "drinking games." One that comes to mind immediately is listening to the song "Roxanne," by the Police. Well, thanks to this website, http://truthaboutduke.com/ , there is a new drinking game that you can participate in!
Play #6 - During the 2nd quarter B3 fouls A2 in the act of shooting a two point goal. After the foul has been reported, Team B is huddling with their coach near the bench. The official directs Team B to put a player in each lane space closest to the endline. When they do not respond, the official bounces the ball to the free thrower and indicates a delayed dead ball violation. When A1 misses the 1st free throw, a substitute free throw is awarded. Was the official correct?
Play #5 - A1 begins to dribble drive to the basket from in front of the center official. He beats his man B1 and has the ball in the middle of the lane when he collides with B2 who has switched to pick him up. The center and lead officials sound their whistles at the same time, do not hear each other and do not see each other until each has given a preliminary signal. The center official signals a block and the lead offcial has signalled a player control foul (charge). What is the correct procedure?
Play #5 - During the 3rd quarter A5 has the ball on a breakaway. A3 is 8-10 feet behind A5. B2 is trailing behind A3. As A5 picks up his dribble to dunk the ball, B2 intentionally pushes A3 in the back knocking him to the floor. A5 continues his attempt and dunks the ball. The official counts the basket, calls an intentional personal foul on B2, awards A3 two free throws and awards Team A the ball out of bounds at the spot nearest the foul. Was the official correct?
Play #3 - During the 2nd of two free throws by A1 the ball hits the back of the ring, then the front of the ring and comes to rest on the flange. After a second or two, the officials rule a violation on Team A and award the ball to Team B along the end line. Were the officials correct?
Play #2 - During the first quarter A1 dribbles the ball across the division line and into the frontcourt. A1 then attempts an "alley-oop" pass to A2, near the basket. The ball strikes the ring untouched and ricochets directly into the backcourt. A1 hustles into the backcourt and is the first person to touch the ball after it went into the backcourt. The covering official rules a backcourt violation. Is the official correct?
Play #1 - Late in the 4th quarter Team A is trying to advance the ball from backcourt to frontcourt against defensive pressure. A1 attempts to pass the ball to A2 near the division line. B2 attempts to steal the pass. A2 fouls B2 across the neck as the ball bounces off of B2's hands. It is the 10th team foul of the half for Team A. The officials award B2 two free throws. Were the officials correct?

About a month ago when I came across this website, I totally agreed and felt compelled to spread the word about Dan Henning. I didn't say to throw Dan Henning under the bus but I did agree with the website and felt like a change needed to be made. As the weeks went on, and the more I thought about it, I began to disagree with myself. I felt like Dan deserved one more year, after all .... he only led the panthers to a super bowl and NFC championship game in a span of 3 years and almost took a TERRIBLE/INJURED offense the other year to the playoffs as well. But looking back at the end of November as seeing stats like the ones below, it's safe to say that I'm not going to lose any sleep over this. We wish you the best Dan!
Total Offense Rank = 24th ______Rushing Offense Rank = 18th
Passing Offense Rank = 19th_____Total Points Scored = 27th
** Even though Dan Henning looks 108 years old, he'll be turning 65 June 21st! Dan was the Head Coach of the Atlanta Falcons (1983-1986) and the San Diego Chargers (1989-1991) of the NFL. He was also the head coach of the Boston College Eagles (1994-96).
I know you're thinking there's no possible way that the Duke Blue Devils will be left out of the 2007 NCAA Tournament, but it is most certainly possible. We knew they were in trouble after looking at their cumulative season stats and seeing that out of their 8 players who play the most, 4 are white boys! Some would disagree with me and say that 5 out of 8 play like white boys with the addition of David McClure, but that's neither here or there.
