And don't give me that bullshit about how they're overrated and didn't deserve to be a #1 seed this season because they're the only team doing their job.

Go read the SI article or the story in thebiglead.com.

I could spend all day on the topic.

How about that Rat b*tches all game like every call is against him?

No hard feelings on Duke honestly although I know alot of people on this board are Puke haters.  They have a great coach, they play hard, and they keep proving people wrong.  I mean look at all the nba talent that went through this university.  If Singler and Smith stay combined with the recruiting class they are getting next year, they will be a problem next season I promise you that.

The most universally hated team along with NYY.  I don't think its really that much of a mystery. 

All that you need to know about Coach K occurred during the 1994-95 season.  Pete Gaudet takes over the program when K is unable to coach because his team sucked and for no other reason.  He successfully petitioned to have the record removed and promptly throw Gaudet under the bus. The man is a complete pos.

ok...so we have 2 people who hate a coach so great that he was selected to coach Team USA and we have a guy hates them because they have a an annoying fan where every other team in any sports doesn't. Now I know Team USA could coach themselves...but it's all about him being CHOSEN.

I understand the hate towards the Yankees...they overpay players.

And ok...some may hate Coach K for that reason. But why still hate them now? People hated Kobe for what he did a few years ago...now he's being loved again.

They needed a guy to coach defense!!!! Since USA couldn't do it.

SO what did the Rat do, bring in the best zone defense coach in Jimmy B. Now his team plays a lot more zone as well.

And don't even start me on what McNuts is talking about. Yeah, I want that guy in my foxhole!!!

He "needed surgery" right in the middle of the yr. It was real life and death.

The Heels have had a bad yr, but at least Roy took it like a man. Got the young guys turned around and playign better. Can't wait to watch the 3 guys that were playing last night to go with them.

They have injuries, played bad, and, ROY had surgery and just tied a coach to his arm and kept coaching thru the bad.

You can Root for your Yanks and Puke all you want to (like the rest of NYC). I will stick with my team.

Is that a joke? Roy whined all year about his team.  2 things: One i heard him say everything ive learned i coaching doesnt help me for this bunch and then after a ga tech loss he apologized to coach hewitt for dragging his team to atlanta and putting on a poor perfomance. Roy williams is an assclown

They fall into that universal category of Teams that you either love or hate.  The route cause of this feeling is usually success.   This is why people either love or hate the following teams:

1.N.Y. Yankees for baseball

2.Los Angeles Lakers for basketball

3.Dallas Cowboys for football

4.Toronto Maple Leafs for hockey

5.Notre Dame for college football

6.Real Salt Lake for MLS (April Fools )

Like i said above the hate usually comes from success, obviously a few of the above havent had recent success and the hate can also come from their fans. 

We all love to hate Yankee fans (in good fun of course).  Arrogant Notre Dame Fans who think they are to good to join a conference.  Lakers fans for complaing that Kobe gets fouled every single time, or even my beloved Maple Leafs, where the fans will drive up Yonge Street after just 1 playoff series win and celebrate like they have won the Stanley Cup.  I could never understand that one.

Having teams like Duke makes sports so much fun because it brings out the true passion in all fans.

Most people hate the winning, suscessful teams because they are on top and in pro sports send the money to have the best.  I say more power to them, I like to see and underdog win but always love a winner.  Yankees, Lakers, Duke just keep winning!!!!!

I do not hate any team.  I love all of them especially the team that makes me the money at the end of the day.  After that we go our separate way.

Almost like  a one night stand.

Wait...they don't play people $100 million to play for their team?

And how can people hate a team who actually keeps their stars for a full 4 years unless your a fan of the rival school.

Yea...a good friend of mine is a Tar Heels fan and he's bragging about them going to win the NIT. Priceless.

There is a reason why the top players choose teams like Duke, UNC, Syracuse, Michigan St. etc. They want to play for great coaches. They win...so they're hated. You wouldn't even have to recruit a star player from North Carolina. He'll probably tell you right there that he's wanted to play for Duke or UNC since he was a kid. Some choose WF or Clemson or another team in the Carolina's...but for the most part...the best will always have the most recognized schools in mind. It's not even about money.

Because Duke players get the michael jordan treatment. I would just like to see an fairly called game at duke. i can see the home team getting more calls but it is ridiculous.

i remenber duke playing virgina tech maybe 5 years ago,i had tech, and duke completely manhandled them. looked like a football game. they either broke or severly damaged techs best players wrist. when players are getting severly injured somethings wrong.
