There are plenty of Duke basketball fans in the world. However, if you aren’t a Duke basketball fan, you really aren’t a Duke basketball fan. Mike Krzyzewski’s team has garnered a reputation for divisiveness among sports fans and, every time the Blue Devils lose on a national stage, the internet erupts with split reactions.

On Sunday, No. 2 seed Duke suffered a big-time upset at the hands of the No. 7 seed South Carolina Gamecocks and that provided their exit from the 2017 NCAA Tournament. As the game came to a close and it became clear that the favorites were going down, the takes flowed with haste and beauty.

An important thing to remember is that in these troubling, divided times we can still come together over Duke losing. Let the healing begin
