Lots of good quotes on the national team, and the upcoming college season. He has this to say on C*rolina and Florida:

The Blue Devils, who play Gonzaga at the Garden on Dec. 21, are in the unusual position of underdogs in their own conference. Several publications have promoted archrival North Carolina as the top team not only in the ACC but in the country. “They’re the deepest,” Krzyzewski said. “And they have an influx of freshmen who can play right away.”

Furthermore, the Tar Heels won’t begin the 2006-07 season with the pressure of defending champions. That distinction belongs to Florida, which returns all five starters from the club that routed UCLA in Indianapolis in April. The last school to win consecutive NCAA titles was Duke in 1991 and 1992.

“The main thing for Florida is that they’re going to get everyone’s best shot,” Coach K said. “That’s difficult. We’ve lived it now for 15, 16 years. The thing it can do is make [Florida] better.”
