    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.

    903 (tiny) is obviously feeling very small.

    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.

    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

    Yep, he has sniffed out Duke's downward trajectory, and is looking for any bandwagon to latch on... View More

    He may have a point. The UK - Louisville rivalry is a little more competitive in recent times. ... View More

    By a whopping 35% to 31%. Wow.

    I agree that 35% isn't much to brag about. But still, a rivalry where a team is winning only 31% of the time in recent years is certainly less competitive.

    ... ESPN has too many Heel homers on the payroll, that's all, it's the last vestiges of would be sports journalists, but Fox Sports is on the rise, all in due time.

    All the journalism in the world can't change State College and the epic egg they have laid over the last 30+ years!

    If that is the case then dook football has not had a rival in over 20 years, unless you count NCCU.
