    First, I want to say that I love Battier. One hell of a glue guy and a class act. Champion. I think he'll be good at the job for ESPN.

    But I do have an issue with this.

    ESPN already features Jay Bilas and Jay Williams. How much ****ing Duke jockstrap sniffing can one network do?

    I hear you. However, have to admit that Duke does have a good record of churning out super star athletes who speak like the college educated people they are.

    that was pretty good.

    Great, ESPN already locking down the next generation of Duke cocksuckers.

    I'll never forget Shane Battier being posterized at UHall late in a raucous 91 to 89 last second win on Valentine's Day '01 (Arguably Duke's best ever team and UVA was top 10ish that year) and the ensuing "Hoos your daddy, Battier?" chant that went on and on.

    I think he was giving homage to Duke Cocksucker of Cornwall 1396-1447.
