The Case for Rooting Against Duke



http://www.sbnation.com/2010/4/2/1398649/duke-final-four-2010-ncaa-tournament

Andrew Sharp wrote this article that is on the main page of SB nation. This is a must read. Sharp details some of the NCAA violoations that were never acted upon,but my favorite part is this:

In my experience, the Cameron Crazies are the worst kind of fans: impossibly loud, front-running, and most importantly, NOT actual basketball fans. These are the worst fans in sports. You the know the type. The people who love sports just because it's an excuse to get dressed up and yell, but don't actually understand the game. The group at the bar that cheers EXTRA LOUD, just to show everyone how PASSIONATE they are. Phonies.

For Duke students, games are more like a social engagement. They camp out together, and dress up together, and read from the same cheer sheets, and generally just have an awesome time being CRAZY together. Except... None of it's really centered on basketball. It's about getting attention, heckling opponents, and most of all, making friends. Because let's face it: Duke students are typically lacking in the friend department.

That's gold Jerry, gold.......
