It's all over but the shouting: the Duke-Miami game will stay in the books as a Miami win. Is it fair? Of course not. Duke won the game on the field and it was given to Miami.

But there's nothing to be done. NCAA rules don't allow for the results to be overturned.
There was a time, possibly mythical, when coaches wouldn't have accepted a win like this. If it ever did exist, it's long gone now. We're not sure any coach would refuse any win. It's a career risk.
All Duke can do now is to put all its attention towards the Carolina game. There's absolutely no reason for the team to look back.
The rest of us? We'll be talking about it for a good long time. People are still talking about the shoestring play, and that was 45 years ago. This one should generate conversation for just about as long.
