Lute, Arizona, Spoiling For Duke

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

You can probably put Lute Olson down with the people who have just about had
enough of Duke. Check
out this column
from the Arizona Daily Star and some of the comments:

  • Olson even suggested sarcastically Sunday to the UA Rebounders Club that,
    "I don't think (TV analyst) Dick Vitale likes Duke, do you think?"
    and noted that ESPN "does a great job recruiting" for Duke and the
    rest of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
  • "The only people who like Duke are the people who went to Duke."

There's more. Pretty clearly, Arizona is licking their chops over a
shot at Duke. Our guess is that this column will make its way to the locker room
bulletin board. By the way, Lute
just got a raise.
