First things first...not every college hoops fan despises Duke. But I phrased the title that way because it helps illustrate just one of the many reasons why some fans do despise Duke. Duke fans, and the media, think that everybody in the country is just as obsessed with Duke basketball as they are.
Sorry guys, but we're not. In fact, many fans don't care one wit about Duke and only like to see them lose so that pundits have to eat their words that have built up over the course of a basketball season.
Of course, there are some fans that genuinely despise the Duke program. And, I have to admit, some of the reasons seem pretty valid to me. However, it is important to understand that a lot of those reasons actually have nothing to do with Duke itself, but as I alluded to a moment ago is because of what others believe about Duke and force down everyone's throat on a yearly basis.
All that being said, here are 10 reasons why a lot of college hoops fans despise the Duke Blue Devils. And for another look at 10 reasons fans despise Duke from the perspective of a Duke fan, go here.
(It's really interesting to see the different perspectives on charges/flops and the hatred due to Duke's winning. Kind of proves my point, I think.)
