Greg Paulus stands and applauds for that effort.
Picture Duke Players Are As Cool As Ever
He's Shelden Williams sexy.
He says this song is for all the Duke haters. It should be for deaf people.
Duke guard Jon Scheyer was predicted to be a second round draft pick by many NBA Draft analysts. But when the final pick was called on Thursday night, Scheyer had been officially passed over and his face took on a shocked and horrified expression that friends and family say is his most ridiculous ever.
Worst of all: his face still remains that way.
"I'm really starting to get worried," said Lina Scheyer, Jon's mother. "Usually his face goes back to normal after a few seconds when a foul is called or not called. But this is the worst news he has ever received. And it's by far the longest his face has ever looked that way. It's terrifying."
After the final pick of the draft was called, Scheyer sat on the living room floor in front of the television, holding his knees and rocking back and forth with his face all Jon Scheyer'd out.
"I felt terrible for him," said Tom Scheyer, Jon's father. "But I assumed he would eventually get up and go to bed."
And Jon did. But Tom Scheyer says that's when things got really worrisome.
"I looked into his room at about 3:00 a.m.," said Tom Scheyer. "And Jon was laying there with his eyes closed, asleep. But his face was still doing that. You know, the Scheyer face."
Mr. and Mrs. Scheyer have now secured a muscle relaxer prescription for their son, but that has also has had no effect and has merely forced drool to flow out of the Scheyer face.
Jon refuses to answer when asked if he is okay, other than a series of siren-like wails: "Aaaaaaaaaah. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH. Aaaaaaaaah. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH."
Greg Wojciechowski, the father of former Duke point guard Steve Wojciechowski, says it will take time.
"When Steve didn't get drafted, he stayed in his bedroom for two months, slapping the floor and falling over backwards," he said. "But thanks to lots of counseling and time to heal and recover, he has stopped that. For the most part."
Duke fans: not a wildly lovable bunch.
Here is a sign a few of them took to the national championship game.
Oh. HA! We get it! You're spoiled rich kids living off the success of your parents. Good one!
Maybe consider these other signs for next season.
With the new Iron Man movie,Iron Man 2, set to hit theatres next month, rumors are already circulating about possible storylines for the third installment, set to be released in 2012. One rumor, which has been making the rounds on the internet for weeks, was confirmed today by Marvel Studios: the main villain inIron Man 3will be none other than ultra-evil Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
Producer Susan Downey said they wanted to create a character that was “the living, breathing personification of evil.”
“For the final installment of the trilogy, we wanted to up the stakes a little bit,” Downey said. “We wanted to create a villain that was so evil, so unscrupulous, and so universally loathed that audiences would shrink in fear at the sight of him. After much brainstorming, we settled on Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. Actually it wasn’t that much brainstorming. We all just blurted out his name at the same time.”
Downey said the diabolical and merciless Coach K would provide the most daunting challenge for Iron Man yet.
“Coach K is really going to challenge Iron Man,” said Downey. “He is going to be cunning, he is going to be relentless, he is going to swear a lot and he is going to have a seriously obnoxious group of nerdy geniuses following him around everywhere. Man, I’m getting the chills just thinking about it.”
No decision has been made as to who will play Krzyzewski inIron Man 3,but among the names being mentioned are Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe. Another option is a CGI rat-man. The plot, according to director Jon Favreau, will revolve around Krzyzewski’s plan to knock the planet off its axis with a powerful magnetic device designed by his cadre of whiny nerd followers.
“I don’t want to give away too much, but yeah, it’s going to be Coach K trying to destroy the earth with a big magnet,” he said. “How will Iron Man defeat this menacing villain? How will he stop Coach K from bringing the planet to its knees? You’ll have to wait until 2012 to find out. Oh, and the whole thing’s going to be in 3D so those horrible, beady eyes will look like they’re burning right through you.”
Krzyzewski said he was aware of the movie and gave his blessing to the use of his name and image.
“I think it will be a great thing for our program,” said Krzyzewski. “That kind of exposure can only help us with recruiting. Sure, it portrays me as an evil monster bent on destroying the world, but there are two sides to every story. My followers in the movie have all graduated from college. That means a lot. And if I was afraid of being portrayed as an evil monster, I never would have become a college basketball coach.”
Duke may have won the 2010 men's NCAA Tournament with a thrilling 61-59 victory over the underdog Butler Bulldogs, but the fact remains that they suck at football, the only sport that really matters.
The national title was the fourth for Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski, or one more than the number of bowl games Duke's football team has won in its 115-year history.
"Congratulations, Coach K," Jim Nantz of CBS said during the trophy presentation ceremony. "You are undoubtedly one of the greatest basketball coaches of all-time. Too bad you know dick about football. You could have really been a legend."
Duke's Kyle Singler led the way in the championship game with 19 points and nine rebounds and was named the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player, but he would probably get snapped in half if he tried to catch a pass going across the middle. Senior guard Jon Scheyer added 15 points, six rebounds and five assists, but at 6'5", 190 pounds, would obviously be playing quarterback somewhere if he was a man and had any real athletic ability.
David Cutliffe, Duke's head football coach, congratulated the team for winning its first title since 2001, but stressed that if any of them had a sack or the slightest bit of physical talent, they would be playing on Saturdays in the fall.
"Greg Paulus, their starting point guard for years, couldn't play on our football team," he said. "I think that says something. We may not have the wins they do. In fact, we haven't had a winning season in 16 years. But at least we're a major league sport."
BCS commissioner John Swofford says the 2010 NCAA Tournament proved the superiority of the BCS system.
"Duke would not have been in the title game if basketball did it the way the BCS does," he said. "Game, set, match, BCS."
Butler head coach Brad Stevens called the loss disappointing.
"I don't know if I'll ever get over it," he said. "We don't even have a Division I-A football team at Butler. It's so pathetic."
