Book Description

In the ranks of NCAA college basketball, Duke University is like something scraped off the bottom of a shoe. It’s like a nasty virus you catch from a door handle at a public toilet.

No team in sports is as uniquely hated as those smug, entitled, floor-slapping, fist-pumping, insufferable Blue Devils. The loathing has almost reached the level of a religion. Christian Laettner is a punk. Amen. The Cameron Crazies are obnoxious. The Plumlees are worthless times three. Coach K is a jerk. Kumbaya.

The team is dogged by an intense hatred that no other team can match—and for good reason. Millions of hoops fans and March Madness aficionados around the world are not imagining things. Duke really is evil, and within the pages of Duke Sucks, Reed Tucker and Andy Bagwell show readers exactly why Duke deserves to be so detested. They bruise and batter the Blue Devils with fact after fact, story after story, statistic after statistic. They build an airtight case that could stand up in a court of law.

So sit back in your "I Hate Duke" t-shirt, and in true Duke fashion, force someone poorer than you to do your work as you crack open the ultimate guide to Duke suckitude.

Editorial Reviews


 “It's daylight savings time, which means it's also Duke-hating time.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Gift for Young Carolina Fan December 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for the 12-year old next door who is a huge Carolina fan. While he is not an avid reader, he was so excited by this gift, he immediately read the first chapter the night he got this. Great gift!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't go far enough February 17, 2013
The list of things they should have considered in addition includes Duke's hissy fit and banning of UNC Robertson scholars (who possess Duke cards and are officially Duke students as well) from tenting because their supposedly bad-ass traditions and cheers were so fragile they couldn't overcome the cheers of a half-dozen opposing fans in Cameron, the fact that Duke's (almost entirely African-American) serving staff calls the school 'The Plantation', and should probably also mention that the K-led Olympic basketball team was urged on to embarrassing Nigeria and thereby sullying not only the American dream but also the Olympic ideal.

Also the stats on fouls were great but the famous game vs Maryland in which the refs DID call fouls and all Duke starters plus two bench players fouled out should have been mentioned.

Great otherwise, couldn't agree more with the title.
