Andy Britt responds to criticism

We received some mail from Andy Britt here at DBR Central responding to the criticism of his article at So, in the interest of equal time, here's his response:

It was definitely a little too rebel rousing. I meant it to sound a little harsh in a comedic way, but I didn't mean for it to make people as authentically mad as they seemed to have gotten. I respect the Duke program very much. I have always been treated well in the pressbox and hold the sports information staff in the highest regard. That may seem hard to believe after reading this column. I pushed the envelope a little too far I admit. This is not a retraction, the article was clearly an opinion piece. I just wanted to fuel harmless flames, not cruel or insensitive ones. I grew up in the middle of the rivalry and love it so. Being new to Goheels I don't think I truly anticipated the number of readers. I will learn. I sincerely apologize for any harm done.
