Duke has almost always played one of the top 1 or 2 teams in the Big Ten as far as I can remember. The SEC Big East thing isn't a blind draw is it?
I don't know about you, but I consider @ Georgetown a game against a top Big East team. I'm not sure how they do it, but I know you don't choose your opponent and they don't set up marquee matchups. Sometimes they happen, and sometimes they don't. I always thought they should match up the top eight teams based on where they finished in their conferences the previous year. First vs first, second vs second, etc.
