Worry about the economy Mr. President!



"Somebody said that we're not in President Obama's Final Four, and as much as I respect what he's doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said from the Blue Devils' first-round site in Greensboro, N.C.


(Wow, Mike, kudos! Give 'em hell! VN8)

It's no secret that Duke and Krzyzewski consider the North Carolina tarheels to be bitter rivals so it's no surprise that he doesn't care for Obama's and VN8's UNC pick.

For some reason, when a basketball coach says the equivalent of "It's the economy, stupid", he's picking on BO. Poor BO can't get a break for some round ball, can he?

Of course around here, Bobby Knight still walks on water ... probably will for a while, but a tip of my borrowed Hoosier hat goes out to Krzyzewski.

Oh you guys only gave an out of context snippet of Krzyzewski's remarks. I just heard the whole clip. He was kidding around and went ahead to say, "Why would I care about that? I love the guy (Obama), and I think he's gonna be great." Also, Obama's personal White House assistant, Reggie Love, played basketball for Coach K. at Duke.

Well, I guess we all have our favorite coaches, but I lived in North Carolina during the reign of Carolina Coach Dean Smith and if I remember correctly he did wear a halo! LOL VN8
