    Why is it so hard to understand that Duke is hated nationally? They are the Yankees of college basketball.

    Kentucky fans do it slightly disproportionally ...

    It is absolutely a compliment. Are they the greatest program ever? Nah. They are the most hated though.

    Maybe you feel that way because you are surrounded by mostly Kentucky fans?

    I know fans of a whole lot of different programs ... trust me, Kentucky fans hold a grudge much more than other programs who rarely share a court with Duke.

    I know plenty of fans from other fan bases as well and I disagree. So what's the point?

    Define right now ? Last 10 years? 5 years? I don't think Duke is the answer to either.

    Last two years, it would be Butler.

    I'd say Duke last 20 and probably Duke or UNC last 10.

    RIGHT NOW is defined as 20 years? I thought 10 years was a stretch.

    Whether looking at the historic/traditional powerhouses - UCLA, Kansas, North Carolina, Kentucky, etc. - or teams that have been hotter lately, Duke is easily the most hated. If people hate successful programs or "top dogs" then they would also hate these other teams commensurately and they do not. Duke inspires a lot of animosity that can't be attributed to success alone.

    Duke hasn't even been 'hot' lately. Past the Sweet 16 one time in the last seven years. Sure they won the title but at best that puts them on par with the other teams who have won the title over the same time period.
