Tripper Allen at it again



  • They are talking about it during the game. Looks like the tripper intentionally stuck his leg out again.



  • Yup, just posted a similar thread.

    This stuff does not belong in the GAME



  • @BeddieKU23 they showed him visibly angry on the bench and the commentators were talking about it. Does he honestly think that the thousands in the audience and much more than that watching on tv aren’t going to notice?





  • @HawkChamp

    It was like he became a 3 year old whining about not getting a cookie.

    Pathetic, honestly you just don’t get it do you Allen



  • Elon is up 1 at half after that technical fired them up.

    Allen should be suspended no questions asked but we all know he wont be



  • @BeddieKU23 nope consonants either likes his tripping or is completely oblivious. Hope Elon wins



  • @HawkChamp

    that would be fitting to bring this to the masses if they did win. Elon has never beat a ranked team



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Oh my God! After having to watch his STUPID redemption story shoved down our throats every espn3 halftime… What a piece of work!

    Grayson Allen, front runner for the Wooden (LEG) Award!



  • @approxinfinity needs to be sent away for help! Elon’s coach needs to whip his a&& after the game instead of whispering in his ear about being above that! Brother!



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    You are the best at finding video…that is a Cobra Kai worthy vicious leg sweep…





  • Heard bilas say acc will do something about it.🤔



  • I told you guys at the beginning of the season, when he was projected top be POY, that it would depend on whether he can go the entire season without being suspended. He is indeed predictable; the time will come when an opposing player rips his head off after a cheap shot.



  • Seth and Jay really laying into him at the half time show.



  • Even Jay Williams (a Dukie) said he should be suspended 5 games. Ripping Coach K for playing him in the 2nd half.



  • @BeddieKU23 big change when compared to last year. The east coast bias media is turning on him



  • When the hell is this fiasco going to stop? - - -There is NO excuse for this NONE what so ever. – Allen is pathetic, not really what I would REALLY LIKE TO SAY but I won’t about him. There is no place in the game for something like this – Blatent, Blatent, Jay Williams is HOT. saying he needs 5 games, They saying that Coach K should before they even leave the arena tonight should suspend him - -They say the ACC needs to take action. Bilas says this has to stop they have got to take action. - - Bilas was a Dukie too right? - - Williams says he is lucky someone hasn’t taken a swing at him which is true - -just utter bullshit. - - THEY BETTER ACT and they better act NOW. - - -ROCK CHAL;K ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • We’ll hear about this pansy for the rest of the season. This should spawn at least 3 more special episodes from ESPN.



  • K just spent a long time talking about the sweet little lovefest after the game where Allen apologized and making it sound like the Elon player just chalked it up to playing hard. Saying they decided to “move on” but obviously was his anticipatory PR shot.



  • @mayjay what did coach k say? It’s his baby!



  • People that act like this are usually on medication or 5

  • @Crimsonorblue22 It was his little grin that caused me to wish I “knew a guy who knew a guy” who could take care of it.



  • @Ralph seems to me like he needs to be medicated! Sedated, put out of his misery, jk😉



  • @mayjay you have probably seen a few!



  • @HawkChamp

    Over the years, when Duke appears not to have overwhelming advantage in talent, or when:

    a.) Duke is down 10 in a high possession game; or

    b.) down 3 in a low possession game;

    Duke cheap shotting seems spike.

    At least that’s how it appears.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 this is garbage. Not enough by K. He needs to say we will handle this. Not explain it away as if everything is okay and this is how competitors act. Looking very ratty today. Like coach like player, dirty b.

    http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/video?gameId=400915326



  • Well If K doesn’t do what he should the ACC should take this and discipline, they should anyways don’t give rat face any chance to aby his baby enough is enough, - -one of these times he gonna hurt someone bad, that was the most blatent trip - -it was bullshit is what it was, at the most you watch ONE GAME. - -ROCK CHALK AL DAY LONG BABY - -I mean it’s DUKE RIGHT?



  • “That wasn’t a full on trip, that was just a flashback”, says K. “Everything is groovy, nothing to see here.” he added.

    If this one goes unpunished I’m waiting for a Duke teammate to get on all fours behind the next victim.



  • So who wants to bet that the Elon player didn’t say what coach K said he said?



  • I just posted about Allen. It’s time someone cheap shots him back. Not to permanently hurt him, but to teach him respect. Allen is a spoiled punk. Having him nose dive on the hardwoods and smash his nose flat to his face is about the only way to get his attention. He believes he is above rules and doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the health of other players.

    I’m not for playing dirty. A cheap shot retaliation at this point isn’t dirty play, it is self-preservation. Duke or the ACC isn’t going to do diddly. And for that reason they merely empower Allen even more to keep doing this.

    Gosh… did you see this wimp melt down on the bench? He reacted like a 3-yr old. Actually, my 3-yr old doesn’t act near that bad, but then, he isn’t spoiled rotten like Allen is.



  • I’m hoping he gets to the league and pulls that on somebody. He’ll end up with his trippin’ foot stuck up his a$$.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I think you’re right. After watching several vids my non-professional opinion is the kid has a screw or two loose. Bonafide nut case.



  • @drgnslayr what about his role model coach?🐀



  • IMG_20161221_223310.jpg





  • @Crimsonorblue22

    There is no question in my mind that the very first step should have been not too play him the rest of the game with further punishment to follow. I am sure that Coach K will pay dearly for this as it will be a permanent footnote on his legacy, whatever it might end up being.

    Whatever penalty Duke end up meting out, the Conference should double just to show that Coach K and Duke are not above the rules and to send a message loud and clear that it does not tolerate this type of behavior. If I were a betting man, I will guess that he will get no more than one game suspension when a 3 to 5 game suspension is warranted.



  • @JayHawkFanToo agree. It’ll be one game and Virginia Tech will beat them in Blacksburg by a couple baskets and the announcers will explain it away as not having Allen when in truth he wilts under pressure and it will probably be addition by subtraction.



  • @JayHawkFanToo

    Agreed.



  • Look at these quotes from after the game… I no longer respect K. Great coach, but you lost me now. He needs to do the right thing here.

    "I handle things the way I handle them,’’ the Duke coach said. "And I think I’ve handled this correctly, and I will continue to handle it correctly, and I don’t need to satisfy what other people think I should do.'

    NO, you haven’t handled this correctly because it keeps happening. You put him back in the game in the 2nd half like nothing happened, he got a foul 5 seconds later and WHINED again. Joke Coach, Joke.

    He went on to say that he is both a teacher and a coach and that he knows Allen better than anyone.

    No you don’t know him better than anyone. Get over yourself. Teacher, you failed, Coaching you failed here.





  • @kjayhawks lolol



  • @BeddieKU23 except let’s call it like it is… Article is false here:

    “A year ago, Krzyzewski had no problem making time for a decorum lesson in the handshake line with a player who wasn’t his own, when he told Oregon’s Dillon Brooks his showboating was beneath him after an NCAA tournament game.”

    Let’s be clear. Brooks didn’t showboat. He played with full intensity when the game was in the balance. A tournament game! If he wasn’t supposed to play hard then take out your f@#$_ing starters and wave the white flag K.



  • @BeddieKU23

    Coach K is not only not helping Allen by refusing to show there are consequences when you act like a punk on the court, he is also jeopardizing his own legacy because his lack of action is a de facto endorsement of this type of behavior. Joe Paterno looked the other way when bad things happened under his watch and it costed him his job and legacy. Granted that what happened at Penn State was considerably more serious but what is happening at Duke is developing on live TV for the whole basketball world to see and it is not looking good for him. His…I know better thank you all do…attitude is surprising and shows arrogance and lack of awareness for how the public at large sees this development. Dana O’Neal was article was spot on.



  • @approxinfinity

    I believe the article does not indicate that the player was showboating, it quotes Coach K telling the player that showboating was beneath him…which he in fact did say.



  • @JayHawkFanToo

    The passage is poorly written. One should use quotes to indicate a quote or explicitly state that they are paraphrasing what someone said. As it is written, someone who is not familiar could easily assume that Dillon did in fact showboat, or at the least that it is the opinion of the author that he did showboat.

    It is a reporter’s duty to present as accurate a depiction of the truth as possible.

    Precise words matter.



  • Ohio State fired football coach Woody Hayes after his Gator Bowl punch directed at the Clemson player who intercepted a Buckeye pass. “Heat of the moment” was seen by no one as an excuse. Why coaches let players get away with stuff just as bad is beyond me.

    Before we condemn K entirely, the one thing I can never find an excuse for is why Self didn’t yank EJ in the Michigan game. Even in a tourney game, you have to not sell out your principles.



  • Even most of the Duke fans on their 247 board are fed up at this point, saying he needs a suspension.



  • @JayHawkFanToo look. I want K’s legacy and Duke’s legacy nailed to the wall presented for what it truly is. A nest of horribly ugly weasels.

    He’s slid by and the Duke program has slid by on nebulous half truths constantly being rewritten and polished until turds shine like gold nuggets.

    And these little innocuous half truths about Duke add up. Dozens of them each year.



  • Trouble in paradise…
