    Be tough to turn down playing with your own brother for at least a year, at least for me.
    Thatís what really gets me. We have one glaring hole on a very good team next year (I believe Coffey will return) and itís at the 4 spot. It was an ideal match for Hurt, his brother plays here, his family is full of gopher fans, etc. Makes me believe that we are up against a machine (shoe money etc) that we will simply never be able to overcome and weíll pretty much never sign a 5 star player again.

    So your speaking for Duke fans on who they will remember ! They will remember Hurt, he is a special player.

    Just another brick in the wall.....

    He wanted to play for K, to play for a legendary program, to win big. You do not need 5 stars to win multiple conference titles and a national title. You need the right coach and the right mix of team players, we just saw it.

    This thread won't end until he leaves Duke for the NBA.

    It was his choice and all but what a stupid choice.

    I think this is becoming increasingly more obvious, may not be direct agreements but there is obviously collusion and a silent agreements between endorsement money and certain blue blood schools, Duke didn't suddenly go to the one and done model for no reason.

    The right coach, the right mix of players, and a little help from the officials.

    Seriously, though, Villanova has been doing that now for a while, with 2 titles to show for it. Obviously you need high end talent, whether "five star" or "high four star" (the range of "four star" now is huge), but it helps most if you're getting high end talent that is going to stay 2-4 years. Build that foundation, though, and an occasional one-and-done from Minnesota or otherwise could put us over the top.

    I'm afraid the fact that Hurt is not good enough to be a one-and-done is exactly the reason he'll have a memorable career at Duke and would have been a program changing player here.

    Watching Tyus win a title there was very aggravating ... I can't imagine how frustrating it would be to have to watch Tre AND Hurt win one together. If there is any justice in this world that will not happen.

    Won't happen, what people forget about that 2015 team is the depth behind the freshman, there's no Zion or RJ Barrett coming in, besides Tre Jones this team has some serious questions in the backcourt and they still lack depth and experience that you need in March

    Good riddance. Donít let the door hit you on the way out. Please take your brother with you. The Gophers Will be better off without him. He can ride the pine with you.

    I doubt that he is on this board. He may take a peek at it, but only to shake his head in disbelief of the comments made from time to time.
