UNC fans get #DookFans trending on Twitter ahead of rivalry game
Duke and North Carolina are set to square off in the latest chapter of their storied rivalry on Wednesday night, and North Carolina fans took some shots at the Blue Devil faithful with the hashtag #DookFans.
The jokes mainly consist of calling Duke fans nerds and front runners, but they are largely pretty clever.
Some fans were less clever than others though:
Duke and UNC will tip off Wednesday night for the 239th time, but the game will be missing something, as it will not be called by ESPN's Dick Vitale for the first time in 36 years. Vitale had called the last few games in the series with play-by-play commentator Dan Shulman and former Duke player Jay Bilas, but the pair will call the game without him on Wednesday.
Duke is 22-3 on the season and 9-3 in ACC play, while North Carolina is 18-7 overall and 8-4 in conference play. The Blue Devils beat the Tar Heels in the last meeting between the teams in March 2014.
