Duke Student Tricks UNC 'Fans' into Praising the Blue Devils During Rivalry Week

Thomas DuffyFeatured ColumnistFebruary 16, 2016

C'mon, UNC fans.

On Tuesday, the Duke Student Broadcasting team infiltrated enemy territory and tricked a bunch of supposed Tar Heels "fans" into praising Blue Devils like Grayson Allen, Brandon Ingram and even Christian Laettner.

"He's a really great person, you know," one poor guy said of Laettner. "Like, for sure—like I respect him myself, too. I'm pretty sure we all do."

What makes these comments even better is the host's smirk. He knows how good he's getting 'em.

Duke (19-6) and North Carolina (21-4) will square off Wednesday in Chapel Hill.
