Brief anecdote: I had a foreign business professional go to his first college football game. He knew nothing about the game. However it was a sold out FBS game involving Top 20 teams. I asked him, "Enjoyable?" "Yes" "Why, you know nothing about football." "Who cares? I sat behind the rah rah girls!!"
The Cameron Crazies are a thing because Duke basketball is a thing nationally. There's a reason why the Cameron Crazies don't translate to Duke football, and it further proves that it's not that Duke students are more or less prone to school spirit.
