There’s an old joke about a farmer with a three-legged pig and the joke is that the pig saved the family from a fire but you wouldn’t want to eat a pig like that all at once.

The Duke-UCF game is kind of like that and people are going to talk about it for a long time.

In the Orlando paper, Mike Bianchi has this lament. The Duke Chronicle has this article more from a Duke angle of course.

For The Win appeals to a Duke-hating demographic here. TSN looks at Tacko Fall in defeat (somehow no one has come up with a headline of the bigger they come the harder they fall). And had a bit of fun too.

A game like that, you don’t want to finish talking about it all at once.
