Does that happen at the Duke or UNC games? No, it does not.
I’m sorry, but you’re delusional. Everyone wants to toss out these magnanimous stories about Dean Smith, and I will accept that they are true. Never met him, never liked UNX, WHATEVER. However, I think we all agree he was one of the greatest coaches of all time.
But I disagree that this doesn’t happen at other schools. I went to NCSU 2007-2011. I went to UNC Law 2011-2014. I was heckled by UNC fans at the football game in 2012 (where I had front row seats to the collapse). So what’s your point? There are idiotic fans everywhere, and usually they are students. You really want to argue using the actions of 18-22 year olds? I cringe when I think about how stupid I was at 21, let alone 18. Now, I don’t remember hurling insults of that magnitude, but I have done my fair share of dirt, especially towards ACC refs. Hell, look at the Miami fan who pushed Cat Barber. What about the Kansas State fans who attacked Bill Self and Jamari Traylor the other night? Bottom line, kids will be kids and you should get over it. The same can be said for adults who post online.
You can’t lump all fans into one category. I read the article last night, and yea, maybe I’m too young to understand it, but I wasn’t upset or even embarrassed for my school. Because I realize that one post, written by one person on a fan forum, does not define my alma mater. And I’m going to savor this victory. Because it’s been a long time coming.
