Duke, UNC, UK, Kansas, Montana State.  Those programs are not going to miss a beat.  If Scheyer flames out quickly, some proven winner will jump in and save the day 

P.S. - Based on the thread title, I really, really had to push back an urge.

I hate Duke.... The End.

There was a time way back when I liked Duke a little....and it wasn't even Duke's fault but after 92 I was done with them. Coach K is a legend. Wish our legend adjusted with the times the way he did. Oh well. That's life. Adjust with times or you get left behind.

Nope....  Still, I never once liked Duke....the only think I would say was that I was always envious of the players they constantly got and their winning record. Coach K was an assistant to Coach Knight at Army...that's the only thing positive I can muster....lol

+1 I also liked Duke before '92 FF - I remember rooting for them against UNLV the previous year. Same story - they went from one my favorite non-IU teams to my least favorite team in one night. And it was really TV Ted's fault, not Duke's... after that I hated them. 

It also did not help that ESPN became the Duke propaganda network a few years later. That made me hate Duke even more AND made me go from loving ESPN to hating ESPN.

Seeing what Hubert Davis has accomplished at UNC makes me hesitant to bet against them.  Then again, there was Matt Daugherty...

I think for programs of this caliber, if they were to drop off, it wouldn't happen overnight. 3-4 years will be a good indicator.
