I can’t believe people still try to argue this. North Carolina and Duke, in my eyes at least, is by far the greatest rivalry in sports. Ohio State and Michigan football? Meh, a lot of people who don’t have a rooting interest in either of those teams don’t watch. Yankees vs. Red Sox? Please, the Red Sox didn’t win anything in that rivalry until a few years ago. Just when you think you have seen everything these two teams have to offer, Tyler Hansbrough ruins JJ Redick’s Senior Night. So for those of you who aren’t fans of either team, I suggest you sit back, relax and watch two of the most stories programs in college basketball put on another great show!
We’ve talked before about ESPN and their many faults, but one of their few strengths is their ability to put together a heck of a sports montage before a game. I’ve added one of my favorites below. Enjoy!
