Everyone making fun of Yale-Duke for being spoiled, preppy match-up
You can feel the smugness in the air as Yale and Duke are getting set to do battle in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday following their wins in the first round.
Saturday’s Duke-Yale game will mark a match-up of two private schools filled with privileged students and fans. One program is from the Ivy League, while the other considers itself Ivy League-worthy. Such levels of elitism causes resentment among ordinary fans, leading to lots of hate (and fun) prior to the game.
Take a look at these tweets for an idea of how people are already mocking the upcoming game:

Yale vs. Duke? Wouldn't want to be one of the refs. #pendinglawsuits. Should make both teams play wearing wingtips.

They should just play the Yale/Duke game in an investment bank to cut down on the travel
