DURHAM, N.C. —- There sure isn’t much to analyze down here at Duke.

I mean, I could go crazy and vet so many things after Duke’s 85-44 defeat of Maryland.


But let’s leave it at these bullet points:

* Duke’s defense is sublime

* Maryland was simply horrid in every fathomable way

* No one other than Landon Milbourne and maybe Sean Mosley played in a credible way.

Instead, here’s a variety of texts and e-mails I received over the course (and immediately after the game):

* “WOW … Is this worse than Morgan State

* “Jesus. Must be like covering an execution down there.”

* “Okay, I’ll bite … What the hell just happened at Cameron.”

* In a reply to my text about how the Crazies were especially insufferable today, “So is Md bball.”

And that about sums it up.

More to come from the airport, but after watching that massacre, I feel entitled to a little cheap barbeque before I leave.
