Yes, that's the sexiest center in college basketball - well, now WNBA - Alison Bales. The nerd alert to her left (your right) is ... a big Shelden Williams fan and Dook football supporter; one of seven. On campus.
She actually is pretty cute for a 6'10'', 270 lb. female ... Imagine the thong she's wearing? You could floss a humpback whale with that thing. And way to class up the photo with the middle finger, Bales. Anyone else horny?

After ending the season dropping back-to-back games to UNC and Maryland, Dook backed their way into the ACC tournament, as a seven seed; the lowest seed they've had in the ACC tournament since 1995. This marks their first opening round loss in more than a decade, and during that time, the Dookies were 23-1 in their last 24 games. That's 9 out of 10 ACC Championships.
Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Tenth-seeded North Carolina State abused Dook for most of this game, with shady refereeing and cheap baskets keeping the Blow Devils in it. Honestly, I've never seen players cry about gettin called for fouls more than this team. McRoberts is a big guy inside, naturally he's going to get a few fouls called on him in a game; but the kid flips out when he's called for obvious stuff. Ditto Greg Paulus. He plays the point like a handicapped bull; throwing his body at other guards so much that he's fouled out of several games this season.
I blame this loss squarely on Gerald Henderson, though. When Martynas Pocious has to come in and play big minutes for Dook - and carry the scoring burden - they're in trouble; and God I hope it happens early in the NCAA tournament. Yes, I said it; they're in, but barely. My fingers are crossed so hard that they'll lose a first round game to a mid-major (Creighton? Central Conn.?). Suicide watch for Coach K. Shoulda took the Lakers job, bitch.

For the first time - the FIRST TIME EVER - in the history of the NCAA Coaches Poll, the Dook Blue Devils aren't sitting on it. (Not to say they don't sit lots of polls, but you get it ...) It also marks the first time in 200 weeks they're not on the AP's poll. (They still remain firmly atop Dick Vitale's poll, however.)
Not to say I told you so, but I told you so.
This Dook team is simply not talented at this point. Greg Paulus is not the guy to be running Coach K's offense, Dave McClure shouldn't even be on the floor, Gerald Henderson is two years away from being nasty, DeMarcus Nelson is way too much of a hot/cold player to be counted on, the guy taking the big shots - Jon Scheyer - is a true freshman who looks like a true freshman taking big shots for the biggest program in the country and the bench is just a bunch of meat with high SAT scores.
Josh McRoberts scares me, but honestly, I think the guy might bolt to the NBA this off-season. After Greg Oden and Kevin Durant, who is a sure thing in this draft? And even if he does, he's easily handled at this point; get him in foul trouble, keep the ball away from him down low and force Dook to run a faster offense so he can't get down the court in time ... Maryland did it, for the most part, and blew them out of the water.
Copy and paste this if you want; because it's going to be the truth.
2/14 @ Boston College : Loss
2/18 Georgia Tech : Win
2/22 @ Clemson: Loss
2/25 @ St. Johns : Win
2/28 Maryland: Win
3/04 @ UNC: Loss
With the rest of the ACC schedules panning out, you're talking about a 7-9 conference record; which is going to get them anywhere from 7th to 10th in the ACC Tournament, meaning an early game against UNC, Virginia, Virginia Tech or Boston College at a nuetral site.
Now that we've gotten to the men, we have to work on those Blue Devil women ...
