    You only have to be good enough to beat the other team. Looks like Duke did that on more than a few occasions.

    The first time I ever heard about Duke University was at a USC football home game in the early 70's. All I could think was "Why are the Trojans playing this glorified H.S. team? Who let them in here?" :lol:

    I don't care for Duke basketball as much as the next guy but they tend to win a lot.
