Drew's from Kentucky.  He Who Cannot Be Named slit Kentucky's  throat in 1992 Elite Eight.

And if he were to step foot into Kentucky, he would likely immediately be poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn and quartered.  With "no witnesses" to the act.  As far as I can tell, the hatred of him is so strong inside of Kentucky, RAND PAUL could do it, and his neighbor would buy him beer for life.

Christian Laettner! Christian Laettner! Christian Laettner! Christian Laettner! There. He's been named. After 30 years it's about time to stop with that "Duke Sucks" shait. It's old as Hell and stupid as Hell. Jeebus, build a bridge and get over it already.

Yeah, 30 years and it's still Duke's fault for not putting someone on Grant Hill to not make it as easy a throw in from the baseline

So here's the thing.  Most Kentucky fans felt like Laettner should've been thrown out of the game, and therefore not available to make The Shot, because of this:

That's Laettner stomping on Aminu Timberlake's chest, same game.  Laettner isn't hated just for hitting that shot.  He's hated because he's a dick.  There's an entire ESPN documentary about it.  For you youngsters, he was Grayson Allen if Allen were constantly giving arrogant interviews.Having said that, I think a lot of Kentucky fans have mellowed out about Laettner, and he's been really gracious the last few years.  My Laettner story:I went to an early season Duke-Kentucky game a few years ago, along with a pre-game charity event featuring Laettner and Dick Vitale.  There were 2 tables full of t-shirts set up, one with shirts that said I Still Hate Laettner, the other with shirts that said I Still Love Laettner.  The 2nd table was still almost full when the event ended.Anyway, they were auctioning off the opportunity to have your photo taken stomping on Laettner's chest, as he lay on the ground, a kind of revenge for the Timberlake atrocity.  Raised a lot of money, it's a pretty tempting opportunity.But after that, he pretty much opened the floor, so to speak.  He let anyone who wanted to do so stomp on his chest and have a pic taken.  Totally won everyone over, very gracious guy these days.And in the years since, it has kind of become a thing.  Here's AD:

But The Shot will always be Kentucky's own JFK assassination.  Everyone from Kentucky knows exactly where they were when that shot went down.  Goddamit.

I'm old enough to have watched him play.  He was a dick then, seems to still be a dick now.  I'm a Michigan fan.  It's not like anything that happened that night didn't help bite my team in the ass 9 days later

It has far less to do with that particular princess and game than the mythos of the program and holier-and-therefore-awesomer-than-thou attitude of the school in general and quite a few players ::COUGHWOJOCOUGHGRAYSONSONOFZODIACCOUGH:: in particular. Not to mention them being on TV more than Leave It To Beaver reruns and fellated by the sports media on a level the Yankees, Red Sox, Lakers, Tom Brady and Lebron James all are totally jealous of. That game is the nexus event, but there's a whole lot that's happened since that has only made it that much more annoying to the other 355 schools in D1.

Or you can be me, and have it more to do with (a) being a Carolina hoops fan, and (b) that particular game happening to the coach who was still revered here in Friartown at the time.
