Despising Duke: How Far Will The Star Go?
Tens of thousands of Star readers opened up the Sports section of the newspaper yesterday shocked to see the picture of Duke Coach Mike Kryzewski defaced with the headline above it reading, "Despising Duke." The Star pulled the picture and apologized for it but only after 30,000 copies of it had already reached the streets, including one read by Coach Kryzewski, who was shocked by it and called it totally juvenile. Who would have thought that the Indianapolis Star would become a local embarrassment as the city plays host to the NCAA Final Four.
