Yes, the Cameron Crazies are some of the more insufferable fans in college sports. But give them credit where credit is due. They really do their homework when it comes to insulting opposing players.
Case in point: The second-ranked Blue Devils’ clash with No. 4 Ohio State on Wednesday night. Prior to the game, one of the Crazies made a poster comparing Buckeyes point guard Aaron Craft — dressed in drag — to child beauty pageant contestant and reality TV star Honey Boo Boo.
As it turns out, the picture of Craft is from an April 2010 profile of him written by our friends at Eleven Warriors prior to Craft’s arrival in Columbus.
And the hex (if the poster was in fact supposed to be one) seemed to work. Craft was held to just 3-of-15 shooting and only one assist in Ohio State’s 73–68 loss.
