Apparently the only thing better than seeing a No. 15 seed win an NCAA tournament game is watching a 15 seed beat Duke.
Anyone on Twitter or Facebook following Lehigh’s 75-70 victory could see evidence of that.
This Quickish compilation of tweets sums up the general schadenfreude regarding the “pleasure” in the Devils becoming just the sixth 2 seed to lose to a 15 seed.
Some go high on the sarcasm, such as D.J. Gallo: “Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart is going to cave in.”
Others take outright glee in it. From Pete Abraham: “What a shame about Duke #thingsnobodywillsay.”
Those were tame compared to Facebook.
Among the comments from NBCSports.com and msnbc.com, approximately 5-10 percent were favorable toward the Devils, usually in some form of remorse (and most of those were usually related to how their brackets were doing).
It’s no secret Duke’s a polarizing team. Friday simply provided a massive megaphone for people to state their feelings.
