Louisville Kentucky Trumps North Carolina Duke

Last year ESPN hyped up our home game with UNC and made it a game day show for TV. Of course State is no rival of UNC cause they have killed us for decades! Occassionally we win a game like last year but it is rare. As long as we have the coaches and AD we have we will never get any better. Go pack

they say ESPN hypes up the Duke UNC rivalry and that is the only reason it is better. But, year in and year out the Duke UNC game is the highest rated college basketball game played on ESPN. Money doesn't lie, and the money is on Duke vs. UNC.
Oh....here is another little nugget- UL and UK have played 45 times. Duke and UNC have played 39 times when both teams were ranked in the top 10. That is what you call a walk off.

903 (tiny) is obviously feeling very small.

I believe in their respective states, the rivalries are equal, but on a national stage, the Duke/Carolina rivalry is still more interesting. Ratings may say otherwise, and maybe it's my ACC bias, but I think Duke/Carolina is THE rivalry in college sports.
Kentucky and Louisville won in 2012 and 2013, but Carolina and Duke won in 2009 and 2010, and both schools won nattys in the last decade.
Interesting article, though.

Both are great rilvaries. I think Ville/ku has alot of hatred like bama/auburn. A lot of friendship in the off season between Unc/duke between the players. Unc/state was the rilvary when I was growing up, but state hasn't beengreat in awhile. Unc better start winning some games against duke.

He may have a point. The UK - Louisville rivalry is a little more competitive in recent times. Louisville is only 5-9 against UK since the 1999 season which doesn't sound all that great but it's still better than UNC's 11-24 record in the games against Duke during that span.
