Duke hosts North Carolina tonight—right now, in fact—and the Cameron Crazies had a bit of a scare this morning. Some Tobacco Road charlatans stole the Duke mascot's head (maybe more?) and stuck it on a stake above the Chapel Hill bookstore.

According to reports, the head was removed at 3:40 this afternoon and Chapel Hill police have taken possession of the mascot head. The head will apparently be returned to Duke, but for now, all Cameron has are these haunting photos.

At least he is OK.

For now.
