No one likes losing their grandmother and by all accounts Lewis was very close to his. She just passed away last Friday and understandably he is taking it hard. The National Media treats Duke with
Wow. Did that really happen? It's kinda hard to make out what they are saying.

In fairness, and I despise Duke and those overrated Star Trek nerds that making up their student section...but there is much debate today as whether or not this actually happened. The primary chant you can hear on the video was "Past your Bedtime" mocking the fact that Tyler is small and looks like a kid.
Some have said that there was also a small group of students that chanted "How's your grandma?" briefly. Other that were there said that it absolutely didn't happen, or if it did, it was only a few kids doing it.
Shortly after the game NCST players were talking about it, so I'm guessing that somebody in the crowd said it.
But the "Crazies" were quick to release last nights cheer sheet to show that it wasn't one of their planned cheers.
Off topic...but the Maryland prank that got pulled on the Crazies during the time Steve Blake played for Maryland was epic.
Interesting that some Duke Grads who were in the crowd state that it did indeed happen and how embarrassed they are over it.
Agreed. I think it's clear that it happened, to some extent. But it was probably a small group of students doing it and not the entire nerd cheer section.
yankee scumbags from dook. who knew?
years ago a black player named david rivers i think played a game at dook. he was not the best looking black guy, and the dook mascot had a headband on saying "buckwheat"
if usc rednecks did stuff like that we would be castrated nationally, but cute little dook...oh isnt that funny?
we get they are elitist. what they dont get is that they are asswipes
Still my favorite sports venue. From friends who attended the game, there were a few kids who chanted something about "grandma", but it was certainly not an orchestrated cheer from the student section. I'm sure this will be blown out of proportion and characterized as something it wasn't - just give it a little time.
I'm sure it is all Dook fans favorite venue. An NBA All Star team would struggle to win there
This prank by Maryland was a classic and unless I'm mistaken, I'm pretty sure that they did in fact chant "Myra and Piggie" at one point during the game but figured out pretty fast that they'd been had.
Policy changes after cheer hoax
By Gregory Beaton | January 11, 2006
When Maryland beat Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Jan. 26, 2005 a clever prank added to the disappointment of the Blue Devils' first loss of the 2004-05 season and embarrassed one of the most famous student sections in college basketball.
After receiving a tip from what later turned out to be a Instant Messenger screen name falsely claiming to be a Duke student, former head line monitor Steve Rawson added untrue information about Terrapin forward Nik Caner-Medley onto the cheer sheet prepared for the Cameron Crazies to use in heckling Duke's opponent. The fan contacted Rawson through his "Cheersheets" screen name and claimed that "NCM's girlfriend is named Myra, and her pet name for him is 'Piggy,'" according to the paper that was distributed as Duke fans headed into the game.
The nugget of information was a ploy to get the Crazies to chant "Myra Piggy" or "Myra and Piggy," both of which sound like the name Myron Piggie.
Piggie was an AAU coach who plead guilty in 2000 for paying five high schoolers-including Duke standout Corey Maggette-over $35,000 while they were still amateurs. Maggette originally denied the allegations but ultimately admitted to having received cash from the former crack dealer. Duke was never punished by the NCAA for the incident even though there appeared to be an infraction because the athletic department learned of Maggette's wrongdoing only after he had left school for the NBA following his freshman season.
While the Blue Devil fans never did chant anything sounding like Myron Piggie, students did make oink noises and chant "Piggy" in Caner-Medley's direction. There was also a sign referring to "Piggy" held up in the graduate student section while Caner-Medley was shooting free throws. Caner-Medley ignored the fans' shenanigans while leading the Terrapins with 25 points that night.
Nevertheless, news that the Cameron Crazies had been fooled surfaced on internet message boards and was printed in the Maryland student newspaper, The Diamondback.
This year's head line monitor, senior Lauren Troyer, said the procedure for creating the cheer sheets has changed in response to the prank. Instead of collecting information through an e-mail account and Instant Messenger screen name as Rawson did last year, Troyer is asking her fellow line monitors to ask the Crazies in line for the game for ideas for cheers. This way, she said, only Duke students will be able to submit cheers.
"Last year anyone could submit something and there was no good way of proving who it was from," Troyer said. "I don't think it was that effective. They wanted us to say Myra and Piggy but the bottom line was we never did it that way. They got us, they tricked us. But it didn't come across as they intended."

The student section at the University of New Jersey at Durham has always been filled with a bunch of pseudo-intellectual pricks.
f dook. that is all. that is all any gamecock fan needs to understand. those were the words frank mcguire once offered to the usc football team about to play dook. paul dietzel asked frank to make a pre game pep talk.
it was a two word speech, it fully expressed the feelings of southerners towards yankees and ragheads..their women are ugly...and i am referring to their cheerleaders.
Hope you feel better now. Heck, all my Duke grad friends are from the south, except one from Ft Lauderdale, and he's the most "southern" of them all.
Why do you have friends from dook? Is something wrong with you?
If I were friendless, I'd stay that way rather than be friends with a dookie.

A picture is worth a thousand words.
Did I click on some right wing militia support forum? WTF is all that ignorant nonsense?
I'm a lefty, but hating dook is bipartisan.
Because the only way I can get into Duke BB games is to keep my Duke friends. Not many, but enough go get tickets when I want them.
Old friend of mine from school's brother-in-law was athletic director at dook for 10 years. I had an open invitation to attend games. Never went once.
Fifteen years ago a friend of mine was being treated at dook for cancer. I rode up with him for a treatment, and had two hours to kill. I walked around campus, went in the chapel and found Cameron. I went up to the portrait of Eddie Cameron on the concourse wall, hocked a loogie on it, told the portrait that was for Mike Grosso, and walked out.
See, you can have fun at Cameron Indoor Stadium without having a dookie as a friend.
Hope to go up for the UNC game next week - I'll stop by the portrait on my way in and say hello for ya.
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
Fortunately, where Eddie Cameron is, he can't hear you for the sound of the flesh sizzling.
Was at the game...absolutely not true...
1st time for dookie & loogie mention in same post.
