From The Vault
Saw this on Pack Pride yesterday: the Sports Illustrated Vault.
Absent was any mention of cruditas, in which the Dukies also dabble. It has cost them friends. Dean Smith, for one, could not appreciate their work less. Others have thicker hides. N.C. State coach Jim Valvano feels right at home among the Animals. "They're all from Jersey, so they sound like me. If I went to Duke, I'd probably be one of them."
Apparently the Crazies were at one point called the Student Animals; never knew that. I can't imagine why that didn't stick.
I found lots of great Jimmy V quotables, which I'll post once SI's site stops having issues.
