Duke fans chanted "how's your grandma?" to Tyler Lewis while he was at the free throw line. Lewis was very close to his grandmother and she just passed away last week.

Duke fans classless?

I'm shocked!

Just go read some of their post here. They can't go 5 minutes without insulting someone.

The classlessness of the fans, team, and school all starts with the head coach.

Reminds me of when Duke fans chanted "orphan" at UNC's Scott Williams (he lost both of his parents to murder suicide).

It's hard to believe these low life scum bags turn out to be doctors.

They continually get a pass from the media, too.

"They're enthusiastic and die hard fans. Full of school spirit."

Funny how no one who was there heard the alleged "Grandma" chant, but everyone else on Twittter swears it happened. #ainththeinternetgreat

Then cite them otherwise is baseless speculation. There may have been a few students that said it but it was by no means a "crazies chant". $h!t like that gets yelled at sporting events all the time but that doesn't mean the whole fanbase are heartless @$$holes.

I'm not saying it was the whole student section. I'm in the camp with Tyler Lewis' dad. It was a group of assholes that snuck it in and you could hear it clearly by the second free throw.

I don't even care about this nor would I pretend to be offended if it were the entire student section. The game is what's important and I don't give a crap what some students were chanting. Jmo.

Actually this has already been debunked, there is no Joseph Henry in the Duke directory and section 19 is on the complete opposite side from where the "chant" was coming from. Real sources would be much appreciated.

I think people hear what they want to hear because I can't "clearly" tell they are saying grandma or bedtime. I do agree with you though about it's importance, college kids yell and do stupid stuff all the time at games so why make this a big deal even if it did happen? What about the time when JJ was playing Maryland and the student section was chanting F**K you JJ and they were holding up signs about wanting to sleep with his little sister who was underage at the time? Like I said it happens all the time and I got many more examples but it's just not that important. Is it crude and disrespectful? Of course but like I said it happens all the time in other venues so let's move on and talk about the game it's self.

So do you want me to come back with an insult so you can cry about Duke fans insulting you? You like to start $h!t and then play the victim don't you?

We all know why you couldn't hear it, Gramps.


Move on. "Your" fans fuged up. They were classless. You defending them makes YOU look worse.

I am defending the fans that didn't say it you are lumping all the crazies and fans together and that is simply not the case. Maybe a few fans said something crude but that doesn't mean we are all rude and/or insensitive. I mean just because I think you are irrational and an idiot doesn't mean I think all unc fans are.
