Tysiac pointed out that it “seemed strange to hear Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski complaining Sunday night about the tone the media take toward the Blue Devils.”
Following a 67-49 shellacking of Virginia, Coach K was asked if fifth-ranked Duke (25-4, 12-2 ACC) is flying "under the radar."
"I think over the years, after we've had some success, we are not talked about much when we're good," Krzyzewski said. "It’s only when we lose. So I don't think we're ever 'under the radar.' It's just that the radar only shows up when we get our butts beat."
"Believe me, I'm not a paranoid person," he said. "But I've just learned that over this last decade, that that kind of happens."
According to Tysiac, “there is some validity to what Krzyzewski says. When you're Duke or Kentucky or UCLA, people expect you to be near the top of the college basketball world. By journalistic standards, that's called "dog bites man." That happens every day, so it's not considered big news.
