You may have thought that Duke’s Cameron Crazies were the wildest fan base in college basketball, but let me tell ya, they’ve got nothing on the Presbyterian Blue Hose Heads.
You haven’t heard of the Hose Heads? They’re the loyal supporters of the Presbyterian College basketball team, which is of course known as the Blue Hose. (Not to be confused with Blue Ho’s, of course).
As far as we can tell, there is only one actual Hose Head. But he did attend Presbyterian’s game at North Carolina on Saturday, witnessing his team’s valiant 103-64 loss to the Tar Heels. Well, most of it at any rate.
Presbyterian Fan was escorted from the premises with over 6 minutes left in the game after giving UNC’s Deon Thompson a good razzing while Thompson was at the free-throw line. What the fan said was so outrageous that Tar Heels coach Roy Williams actually had to intervene and tell police to escort the man from the building.
The offending message?
Ohhhh, dayum. That’s some serious, out-of-control, totally uncalled-for smack talk.
After the game, Williams said that “no one should say anything negative about our players” and requested that we don’t “make this thing any bigger than it is.”
Too late, Roy. You missed it.
