He consistently peddled BS for 7 years to cover for his lack of coaching success.

Why are you so concerned with what I think? You believe KD was a straight shooter prone to candor. I don't.

What did that man do to you Phil?

Thanks for posting Bluffhunter. So cool to see Dambrot up there with those two talking hoops! He fit in like a glove. Maybe he moves that direction in retirement? Or some sort of commentary? I always appreciated his candor and commentary after games. It would be awesome to see him as some sort of college basketball pundit or something. I could see it.

Maybe the name of this forum should be called “ Duquesne haters United.” 😂😂😂On a serious note I hope  Coach Dambrots wife  is doing well  with her treatment.👍

Pat MacAfee show today segment about Bronny officially entering portal talking about THE DUQUESNE UNIVERSITY as the potential landing spot. 1 month ago nobody outside of Pittsburgh could pronounce Duquesne. Second question nationally was where the hell is Duquesne located? If this 3rd miracle happens(1) A10 Champs (2) Win vs BYU Duquesne gets 100 million dollars in free publicity. What a month👍🙏

I love when people tell other people how they should  spend their money. Anyone on this board can contribute to the athletic department in support of NIL money. Norm & Michael Cooper who went to Omaha Nebraska was worth a solid contribution towards the University.

What was the consensus among the DU fan base about Satalin's hiring? 
 

I wasn't happy when Mike Rice was fired, but I was not surprised.  He and Father Nesti, the school's president at the time, were like oil and water. I've always said think of Mike Rice as that aggressive jock in HS gym class who teased and bullied the most timid kid in the class.  Donald Nesti was that timid kid. One losing season was all that was needed for Nesti to fire Rice due to various behind the scenes issues that I won't go into here.

The Dukes were poised to hire Gary Williams away from American after Rice was fired.  A contract was tentatively agree upon and Williams flew to Pittsburgh to iron out the details.  Mossie Murphy and Red Manning picked up Williams at the airport and on the way into town let Williams know that they intended to continue to have great influence over the program.  Williams didn't want that type of interference and the deal fell through.  He would later coach Boston College, Ohio State and Maryland.

Jim Satalin was attending the Final Four in 1982 with no thought of leaving SBU.  While sitting in the stands during a game he was approached by someone representing Duquesne (I can't remember who, but this was told to me directly by Jim himself) and he was offered a contract for so much more than he was making at SBU that he couldn't turn it down.  The Dukes had a new coach.

I like Jim and thought he did a good job given the circumstances.  He was greatly hindered by the false accusations of rape against 4 of the players.  I won't go into detail here but I will say that I know more about what happened than the average Dukes fan of the time.  All 4 of those men had their lives disrupted by a young woman's lies.  Those lies damaged our program for years.  Another thing that hindered Jim was that Duquesne was not St. Bonaventure. At SBU Jim had that alum's passion about the school in recruiting that he just didn't have

First things first. Harper hires Dru Joyce next week as Coach Dambrots replacement. SMU has more money thanks to Texas oil than USC. If Enfield leaves what happens with Bronny James? I have read the Lebron dream before retirement is to play with his sons. However, Portal transfers must decide before May 1. NBA draft Middle of June. Would an NBA franchise draft Bronny James? I don’t think he is ready for the NBA at this stage. Especially, after his health scare which limited his development. The million dollar question is of course Bronny to Duquesne to play for uncle Dru. He would be a star in the A10. Especially, if the core players remain with some 5 star add ons via the portal. Lebron & Bronny X or twitter followers endless which means Duquesne University would receive over a billion dollars in free PR. My question is can a player choose to portal & also enter the NBA draft?

So agree Harper has done a great job. If I am a power 5 school I would take a good look. His resume at this stage is A+. As for President Gormley his title should be stripped & the board should anoint him King Gormley 👑👑👑 What a year for Duquesne.

The A-10 has carried the very low Dukes too long. Ferry and KD didn't make us an asset to the A-10,, but just the opposite. Ferry and KD in 12 years have beat no one.When we won the first "A-10" (the eastern-8) we really beat nation wide teams. Even now, if we win the A-10? they are not as respected as that first year? And sadly, KD's team isn't coming close?  KD was a bust from the start. Actually Dru is a hidden gem and should get a chance this next year. If DU lets KD in one more year, we are destine to never win. I mean KD??? one more year here is a gigantic failure.

Man, you’re like a constant downer, huh?

Four game win streak at crunch time has him in the dumps.

Went to the game. Unbelievable atmosphere, fan & student support very impressive. Hopefully, the Cooper Center can consistently in the future pack the house. VCU & Richmond however do not have to compete with the Steelers & Penguins. Also met Jimmy Clark’s dad walking into the game. Total dude👍The fans also were very polite & friendly. Obviously, I toned down any obnoxious Yinzer behavior or worse yet Bonnie or Flyer nation fans behavior. Rams best player was out due to injury. That’s basketball. The referees were fair. Coach Dambrot actually switched to a zone at times. In my opinion he was strategically dictating the game. This is a good sign for the tournament.

Phil95 I get your point. I do however view F. Drame as a 3. He has also played well this season. Dukes need to find production of a power forward this week before the A10 Tournament. If not Groundhogs day for Duquesne fans in March. One & done. Cheer for the A10 teams   In the big dance. Wait for Pirates opening day. And countdown the Masters for golf. Big game tonight at VCU. I am going tonight. If they win I may go Stu the legend. 😂

NapaDuke sooooo agree. I thought the Dukes this year had a big time 4&5 advantage. Unfortunately, Dusans medical condition slowed his progress. Still believe in his ability with physical limitations. Dixon at the 4 spot has been a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, no support at the 4 or 5. If the Dukes struggle at VCU early in the game give Andre a viable shot. Trust me I have seen enough out of the 4 spot. Zero production except for Dixon. Go Dukes.

Coach Dambrot coached a solid game at a hostile environment. GM took down flyer Natio previous game. . I do however can’t understand Andre sitting on the bench. The current 4 just gives nothing especially with his experience. I hope this is not personal against Sarasov but cmon man. Makes no sense. Keith don’t be a hater.

The women yes women scorekeeper told the referees that Jimmy Clark had 2 foul shoots with only 9 team fouls. No penalty. Referees tell Dambrot & Duquesne players two. Jimmy clanks front end. GM players last second tell player 1& 1 . Dukes stand around rightfully so. GM. Players rebound release layup referees have to blow the whistle. GM fans go nuts. Even the GM announcers said two shots. Referees on camera confront her & on camera she goes in deny mode. Can you imagine if the great Tim Zugates blew this call at home for Duquesne against the visiting team. If would fire her asap. woke rules unfortunately. God bless Zugates👍
