Morning links: Maryland-Duke is looming

By Matt Bonesteel

Good morning. Some quick links.

The Blue Devils are coming of a rather humbling loss to St. John's, and Coach Mike Krzyzewski wasn't pleased with his team's effort.

Krzyzewski's daughter is recovering from a stroke she suffered in December.

ESPN uses some sort of statistical analysis to rank the ACC as the nation's fourth-best conference, behind the Big East, Big Ten and Big 12.

In football news, the Diamondback is reporting that Maryland Coach Randy Edsall has banned his players from riding on motor scooters.

Note to the suits at ESPN: Your continued employment of Vitale for Maryland/Duke broadcasts exposes the network as either a naked shill for all things Duke, or as being completely unaware of Vitale's obvious bias in favor of the Blue Devils. Which is worse?

What?!?!?!

ESPN hires people with biases?

No way.

I didn't realize that with the likes of Teddy Bruschi, or Chris Berman, or even when they had Peter Gammons. Or course the list is much longer.

But still, ESPN hires people with biases towards certain teams?

It is better to have a ESPN commentator bias than a referee bias. It still seems that there are officials out there who still believe that it is impossible for a Dookie player to commit a foul. I hope we do not get one of those freak referees Wednesday night. They are almost as bad as the Dookies who think it is rude to beat their team. Let them play straight up and keep it unbiased on the court.

ESPN actively promotes Duke by assigning Dookie V to broadcast their games. Vitale just goes with teams that win frequently but I think he has something sexual going on with the Dook team.

Dick Vitale chooses the games he wants to cover, not ESPN. If it were up to them, they'd have him doing one of their most watched games (MD-Duke) tomorrow night...but he's not.
