Duke â€śnot just a basketball coach, but a leader who happens to coach basketballâ€ť Mike Krzyzewski will return to lead the USA National Team program for a third quadrennium. And no, I have no clue what a quadrennium is.

We've all seen it before, a million times. Boeheim, the Syracuse-lifer by choice, screaming at someone about something, anything -- maybe because he's a Syracuse-life by choice. He could be yelling at a player making a boneheaded mistake, a Jim Burr official making a boneheaded call, a boneheaded Gregg Doyle asking Boeheim about retirement, a microphone...being a microphone...
