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?
