Duke Blue Devils Mike Kryzyzewski

ESPN Radio in Chicago interview

30 Mar, 2011

Kryzyzewski gives his thoughts on why people hate Duke:

To be quite frank with you, there are more people who love Duke.  We’re as popular a team in the United States, but we are also a hated team because we have won and it is okay.  I had John Thompson on my Sirius XM show and he talked about anger based on competition, it’s competitive anger. I am okay with that, with somebody saying I want Duke to lose because they have won.  When you attack the standards that our guys have had, that’s a different type of anger and then you should get help because then you got a problem, and it is not my problem, it is your problem.  But competitive anger I’m good with.
