Duke is hated 2x as much as any other team in our emotional toll tracker. Lots of people are dancing in their chairs nyti.ms/PYh4WG—

Amazing jubilation on the floor from Mercer. Now in the Duke locker room: tears aplenty. The heartbreak of moments like this, always tough.—

Some said they saw this upset coming.
Derek Jeter claims he picked Mercer to beat Duke. “When you only do one bracket, you make the right picks,” he said.—

But most were just happy to see them lose.
No matter if you’re a Republican or a Democrat, we can all agree on one thing: It’s wonderful that Duke got beat! #nesen—

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away Duke won an NCAA tournament game.—

Party on, Mercer. You made a lot of Duke-hating tweeters happy.
