A Poorly Conceived Cheer

We were not happy to hear the Crazies chant "We Want Maryland!" during the Tech game, and here's why.

First of all, it's an underdog's cheer. In other words, let people chant it to us. There's no reason for a program in Duke's position to chant to other teams. Let them do the asking.

Second, it gives Maryland more ammunition. They've got enough. Don't help them any more.

Third, Maryland isn't even our next game. We've got to play an energized NCSU team in Raleigh on Sunday that would be a huge mistake to overlook. It's going to be a really tough game, and State deserves our respect.
