Video: Dick Vitale Not Impressed by UNC Court Storm
Following North Carolina’s 74-66 upset of No. 5 Duke on Thursday, the fans at the Dean Dome did something rare for them: Storm the court. Much to the confusion and disappointment of ESPN’s Dick Vitale.
“I’m really surprised their rushing the court,” Vitale said on-air. “This is North Carolina! This is North Carolina!”
Naturally, plenty of folks attributed Vitale’s comments to his purported, age-old Duke homerism and took to Twitter to try and put him in his place.
@DickieV why not you love Duke so much Just keep your mouth shut and people might think you like college basketball instead of loving Duke

We get the feeling there’s one group of non-Duke fans who agree with Dickie V: Kentucky fans.
