Andre Sweet Suspended

Duke's depth, already shaky, took another hit today as Coach
K suspended Andre Sweet indefinitely
for underperforming academically.

Every time Duke has flunked a player out, while we have regretted it and
gnashed our teeth, we have nonetheless applauded. We do so again.
Basketball is a great game but it doesn't replace an education. Like most
Duke fans, we like Andre a lot and we want him to succeed. If this helps him to
get there, then that's great. We hope you Crazies, when you see him on
campus, reinforce that message and let him know that while he's sitting for a
while, he's still part of the team and we very much want him to succeed - on the
court and off.
