The Final Four is nice. The Sweet 16 is swell. But few things are guaranteed to get people going mad during March like the moment when a highly touted Duke team loses to an underdog early in the NCAA Tournament.

For the second time in three years, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski's team was dealt such a shocking defeat in its opening NCAA Tournament game. For the second time in three years, the Blue Devils' legions of haters reveled in the bracket-busting upset, even if it cost them a chance at $1 billion.

Here more than a dozen things from No. 14 Mercer's 78-71 win over No. 3 Duke in their opening game of the 2014 NCAA Tournament that had Coach K's critics tweeting, gloating and celebrating as if their favorite teams had just cut down the nets.
