Duke Blue Devils: Four straight losses!

The Duke Blue Devils have just suffered their fourth straight loss in conference play, the longest losing streak since 1996.

As a fan of the Kentucky Wildcats, and I can imagine everyone across the nation agrees, it's always nice to see Duke lose. With Kentucky losing over the weekend, one can only wonder as to whether UK will be ranked higher than Duke when the polls come out tomorrow.

I believe it is safe to say that, given their bias in favor of Duke, everyone at ESPN must be on a suicide alert.

How soon before the Duke boosters call for Coach K's head?

The last time that Duke failed to make the NCAA Tournament was 1995-96 when they finished the season with a 13-18 record. However, in the 1995-96 season, Coach K only coached 10 games before taking the rest of the year off for back surgery. At the time, their record was 9-1. If you discount that season, it would have been the 1982-83 season during Coach K's third year.
