As I said in the title, I HATE THE DUKE BLUE DEVILS (in a sports sense) because even when the team is irrelevant, it seems like the media and the NCAA want to keep them in the limelight. I think Coach K is a great coach, but it is just something about the Dukies that just get under my skin; I know one thing, with Duke you either love them or despise them.
Here’s a reason why I just hate them (remember it’s in a sports sense), the Cameron Crazies are known in college basketball as the craziest (and obnoxious) fans out there. The Crazies are known for painting their bodies blue and white or wearing outrageous outfits. They start cheering soon as warm-ups begin. Most of the time they are just being funny, but there are times where they get rude and crude and Thursday night they definitely hit under the belt.
The #4 Duke Blue Devils played the North Carolina State Wolfpack and news came out that the Wolfpack guard Tyler Lewis lost his grandmother last Friday; they were close and he would check on her everyday. The Crazies found out this information and used it as verbal ammunition.
Per @realnolanevans who is at the game, Duke fans did in fact chant, “how’s your grandma” to Tyler Lewis. I have lost all respect for the CC

Duke fans reportedly chanted, “How’s your grandma?” at N.C. State’s Tyler Lewis, whose grandmother recently passed away. That’s messed up.

I know it wasn’t the whole student section, but it was enough to where you can hear the chant in the background. That is just messed up, you are able to stoop low enough to get personal in a public arena and go after a young man by taunting him with his deceased family member that he loved.
Even a Duke student admitted to hearing the chant…
