Duke Basketball Trolls Patrick Mahomes After Beating Texas Tech
As you might have heard, Patrick Mahomes attended Texas Tech University and is still a huge fan of the Red Raiders' various athletics programs. Mahomes was a mainstay during the NCAA Tournament run in 2019 and has been back to Lubbock numerous times to watch Texas Tech basketball games. He was in town this season to watch his beloved alma mater beat Baylor at the United Supermarkets Arena.
Mahomes and fellow NFL Red Raider Kerry Hyder were making big plans before the game against Duke last night.
If you spent the night under a rock, Texas Tech did not beat Duke last night nor did they end the career of Coach K. As the kids say, the tweets aged poorly.
Duke though, ever the opportunists, took the opportunity to give a shoutout to the face of the NFL who is fresh off his honeymoon with his new bride Brittany.
"Come through," they told him. "It's all love."
That's fine, but the kicker is that they found an OBVIOUSLY PHOTOSHOPPED PHOTO of Patrick Mahomes wearing a Duke jersey.
Paolo Banchero wears number 5 for Duke this season, but IF this is a real photo, I'd assume it's a throwback of Mason Plumlee or Luke Kennard. Tyus Jones maybe.
In any case, it was a great tweet by Duke Basketball and at this point, I hope they beat Arkansas by 20 in the Elite 8 and North Carolina in the Final Four before winning the National Championship. If it can't be Texas Tech, at least they lost to the Champion.
