March Madness rivalry

It’s that time of year–the NCAA tournament is heating up and March Madness is in full swing! There’s many college rivalries out there, one of the most notable being North Carolina/Duke. Former Esquire editor (and Carolina grad) Will Blythe commented on the rivalry:

 

“To legions of otherwise reasonable adults, it is a conflict that surpasses sports; it is locals against outsiders, elitists against populists, even good against evil… The rivalry may be a way of aligning oneself with larger philosophic ideals — of choosing teams in life — a tradition of partisanship that reveals the pleasures and even the necessity of hatred.”

Do you agree? Which rivalry are you most looking forward to watching?
