Tyler Lewis

Losing your grandmother is a traumatic experience and by all accounts Lewis was very close to his. She just passed away last Friday and understandably he is taking it hard, but was playing through it. The National Media treats Duke with kid gloves and as if they have Halos, but what are they going to say about this?

If this was the NC State crowd chanting this to a Duke player it would be national news. We will see how the mainstream media and Dick Vitale addresses this. It doesn’t matte if it was one fan, 100 fans or 10000 fans. While they will spin it as a “Past your Bedtime” chant that did happened, they will ignore the chant previous to that about Lewis’ grandmother, which can be heard faintly in background.

A Duke fan in the stands confirmed and identifies the people who chanted about Lewis’ grandmother on a Duke Fan Site Blog.

  1. So you don’t have actual evidence but a bunch of people not at the game tweeted it. Nice to see you’ve done your reporting. Apparently, this wasn’t true. Would love to see a video or an apology.

        • His video is the “Past your bedtime” chant. He’ll spin it as “How’s your grandma” and say that we are too biased to hear the students correctly.

          • you must be joking, the video is of the game and you clearly hear the grandmother reference, you Duke idiots need to get over it and realize you make it happen.

      • Do you call this journalism, “chief”? You take a malicious internet rumor and spin it as fact to garner page hits and comments? Well, it worked. You’re a good social media marketer. But you’re also a troll.

        My deepest condolences to the Lewis family.

        • Glad to see the college experience is having the desired effects on these Duke students. If multiple witnesses can attribute this chant to any particular students, they should lose the privilege to attend any more home games for the rest of this season.

          & for those who say this is all fiction, multiple credible witnesses say otherwise, so don’t be like those homers that to this day defend Penn State, for all that does is feed the fire that this has brought onto Duke Basketball & it’s fans.

    • call Duke at 919-681-3788 or the ACC office at 366-854-8787 and tell them how wonderful this low life school is.

  2. You might want to add the facts. The person who started this rumor heard one or two people yell it from the stands. It was not chanted by the Cameron Crazies. There are always a few idiots at games. Coach K would stop the game and address the fans if they did that. He’s done it before.

    • Coach K is a rat face pile of crap. Scum gets away with never playing true OOC road games. Can’t stand that rat face wimp. Duke fans are scum as they come, they’re known for crossing the line with their stupid chants. Maybe their just bitter that their football is so awful

  3. I was the person standing directly to the right of Nolan Evans, who tweeted about this originally. I found out about this false report while looking at his messaging over his shoulder to discover that he hopefully misheard our chant of “past your bedtime.” Not a single student knew of the incident because it was not part of our “cheat sheet” and seeing as how I didn’t chant it and I heard no one chant it, I can either assume that his claim of “How’s your Grandma” is either a misheard chant or sensationalism at its best.

  4. Maybe you should use alleged instead of stating it as fact. There has been no evidence produced although one of the guys claimed he received video of it. Many people who were there including on media row have said it’s not true and they didn’t hear it. Furthermore they decided to wait to tweet about it…They’re “rivals” why not tweet about it when it actually happened? Rodney Purvis tweeted about it then deleted it. I’ve said it’s foul either way; if it’s true or made up. Everyone already paints Duke and their fans like they’re the devil. This only throws fuel on the fire.
