JJ Redick’s beef with Maryland was flavored by ugly heckles, prank calls, and Duke’s legacy of jerks
BEEF HISTORY NEEDS YOUR HELP ok maybe that’s dramatic but not far off. It’s nominated for a Webby Award and if you have a minute to vote, we’d appreciate you endlessly: vote.webbyawards.com/PublicVoting#/2021/video/video-series-channels/sports
When JJ Redick was at Duke, a lot of college students hated him. He was too confident, too good, and went a rich kids’ school. In college bball, that’s enough to be despised. And no school’s fanbase was more aggressive (or sometimes … more horrid) than at The University of Maryland.
What started out as a school simply hating Redick just like everyone else ballooned into something larger and nastier (hint: beef).
College beef is a unique cut. There doesn’t have to be much substance to create rich flavors that fill you up and stick to your bones, well after the meal is over.
