Duke. You hear the name and you hate it. The question is why. Is it really because "they suck"? Duke fans say its just because Duke is easy to hate.

3 National Championships. 10 Final Fours under Coach K. I would say they are pretty good. Bobby Hurley, Christian Laettner, Grant Hill, Elton Brand, Jason Williams, and JJ Redick. Not too shabby

There's the rivalry between Duke and UNC. Only 8 miles apart and considered the biggest rivalry in all of sports. There was Gerald Henderson breaking Psycho T's nose. JJ Redick and his amazing shooting. Art Heyman vs Larry Brown and so much more. 

Carolinians make fun of Coach K, and Dukies make fun of Roy Williams and Dean Smith. JJ Redick is in the NBA yet he still gets yells and jeers when he goes to the foul lines.
