In our ongoing series of articles about what bugs us most about some of the Georgia Tech rivalries, we’ve concentrated mainly on football rivals. But the Yellow Jackets have some bad blood on the hardwood as well, and that’s why it’s time to take a look at all the things the Duke Blue Devils do to drive us into a stinging frenzy.

As stated above, we’ve already tackled a couple of Tech’s most hated foes. The warm-fuzzy kittens up in Clemson didn’t really have much reaction to our ribbing. On the flip side (and I literally mean flip), the fans of VPI (you might know them as Virginia Tech) seemed to exhibit a real lack of ability to endure any mockery…despite how easy they are to mock.

Hopefully the Dukies will be able to be better sports about it…but then again, they do have a contingent known as the “crazies”…so who knows?

While Duke has made a resurgence in the football world recently, there is no ill-will on the gridiron between these two schools. Not to mention the fact that the Yellow Jackets have pretty much owned the Duke when it comes to pigskin clashes, winning the last 10 contests in a row and 18 of the last 20.

Hoops is a different story. Duke is the darling of the college basketball world, and nothing can be said to take away from the incredible record they’ve compiled, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t grate on our last raw nerve.
