The best part of Mike Krzyzewski's 1969 West Point yearbook photo surfacing on Tuesday isn't his parted hair, boyish face or button-studded uniform.
All of that is secondary to the way the editors poked fun at the future Duke coach.
How great is it that they compare Coach K to three guys known for their enormous noses in the blurb next to his photo? Or that they refer to him not as "Mike Sha-shef-ski" but as "Mick Kriz-il-lon-ski?"

Hopefully rival ACC schools take note. The first ACC student section to launch a "Kriz-il-lon-ski" chant when Duke visits this season is guaranteed to get a laugh.
