New York Mets fans are loving Max Scherzer this season, as the former Washington Nationals star has been dominating on the mound so far.

However, the legendary MLB pitcher has upset college basketball fans on Sunday night.

ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball shared a "then and now" graphic featuring some of Scherzer's favorite things.

For some reason, Scherzer's favorite college basketball teams have changed. According to the graphic circulating on social media, Mad Max grew up rooting for Kentucky, but he's now a Duke fan.

How does that happen?

Most of Scherzer's other picks are understandable.

But the college basketball teams one needs explaining.
