Abstract:

"No team in all of sports is as uniquely hated as those smug, entitled, floor-slapping, fist-pumping, insufferable Blue Devils. When Duke won the national championship in 2010, cheers may have erupted on the campus, but for a large portion of theAmerican public, it was like watching a pet die. Every team has its detractors. But with Duke, it's different. To its haters, Duke is like something scraped off shoes. The team is dogged by an intense loathing that no other team can match. But even those legions of basketball fans who detest Duke may have a hard time articulating exactly why they're so put off by the team--until now. In this book, Tucker and Bagwell show readers exactly why Duke deserves to be so hated. 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. Millions of basketball fans around the world are not imagining things. Duke really is evil, and Duke Sucks proves it"--
