Coach K said that his comments were taken out of context.

One of the things that all of us should keep in mind in the modern age is a healthy skepticism for the media. Mike Krzyzewski would not be the first person to be mischaracterized and he won't be the last.

The problem is that something can be set in stone fairly quickly, like that story about the McDonald's lawsuit over hot coffee.

That lady got mocked coast to coast, but she also had third degree burns. That part always gets left out.

Our advice: no matter what you hear, if it sounds odd or kicks off your spidey sense, then you should make a note of it and look again in a couple of days.

There's a pretty good chance it's been corrected and you're still hanging on to the outdated version.
