Quote of the Day: Mike Krzyzewski

Mar 25, 2010, 9:28 PM EDT

Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, speaking with the Chicago Tribune on the pressure of living up to his past success in the NCAA tournament:

“For a while when I dated my wife, I had trouble living up to the
expectations of her former boyfriend. Just judge people for who they are
right now. We’re not the Yankees, we’re not, thank goodness, the Cubs.
It’s different. It’s college, just give them an opportunity.”

Like ‘em or not, Coach K-led squads have captured 12 ACC Championships, have reached 10 Final Fours and have captured three National Titles (in 1991, 1992, 2001).  The Duke Blue Devils are certainly not “the Cubs,” who haven’t won a World Series since 1908 and failed to reach the playoffs last season despite a massive $134,809,000 payroll (figure courtesy of Cot’s Baseball Contracts).

    I don’t know how long “a while” was, but apparently there eventually came a time when Krzyzewski began reading his spam.

    I come to this site to read about baseball, not weasel-faced coaches of annoying white boys.
