Do Homophobes Hate Duke?

Tags: gay

I consider myself a fan of college basketball but not as fanatical about it as I am about other sports.

Still, I'd like to think of myself as generally aware of what's going on with college hoops and take a back seat to no one in my hatred for Duke as the sport's New York Yankees.

But I must admit I'd never heard this take in The New Republic by a Duke guy who makes a case that the hatred of his alma mater by some people channels their homophobia. And there's an Oregon connection to the magazine piece because it leads with Blue Devil Kyle Singler, who graduated from South Medford and who apparently has become the latest example of what anti-Duke fanatics say about Duke players' sexuality.

For the record, I hate Duke because the Blue Devils win a lot. And I hate these homophobes because they really are idiots.
