    You got me and now win by typing all that. You put me in my place.

    Worth it? You set the record straight with your opinions. Let them be known to everyone you disagree with mine.

    UNC and Duke won't be the best game this season, but will be over blown by ESPN/media. Even during down years, They'll still talk about uniforms and overhyped stats to sell them as if it's a bigger game than others. Most see through this bs, and know exactly they're just selling two teams that should be on ACCN.

    Come on now. Just admit, you wished your rivalry was hyped as much as Duke and UNC.

    Maybe get them to schedule it in February instead of December? Maybe get them to show it on ESPN only cause CBS doesn’t hype it when the game is at Kentucky but ESPN does when the game is at Louisville.

    I’m sure there are more suggestions. UNC certainly sucks this year (and im enjoying it) but like most years, this game has delivered, which is why most people watch it. Numbers don’t lie.

    Would the best rival need to sell it? If some says, you're stupid, do you sell them you're not by going 84 digits into pi?

    Guy's it's ok with being a top rivalry. It's ok.

    It's the best rivalry. This year it is pretty crappy though.

    BTW, the Duke/UNC game last year was the third highest rated regular season game in ESPN history (although I've also seen folks say it was the fifth highest of all time), and the most watched weekday game in history. "Compared to other sports, it outdrew every regular season NBA game on cable since January 2018 (Warriors-Cavaliers: 4.68M). It also topped all-but-three regular season college football games on cable last season. Oklahoma-West Virginia had 5.63 million on Black Friday, Virginia Tech-FSU 5.58 million on Labor Day, and Clemson-Texas A&M 4.49 million last September."

    The Duke/UNC ACC semifinal last year was the top rated game during Championship week in the history of the network. It ended up being a 1 point game, so the record audience got a good one!

    I didn't think any of them were clever. Lack of cleverness is a big issue today though. People think dumb things are funny. Nothing against dumb for cheap jabs but that doesn't make it funny.

    Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. According to my lawyers, you don't actually have any jurisdiction over me to determine wins and losses, so it's not actually a loss. From here on out, I will self-report all wins.

    Has anybody noticed ESPN has almost completely stopped giving updates on tip times/channels when games run over this season?

    Most years the Duke/UNc game is awesome and deserves the hype but this year, no! Not saying it won’t be a great game but with things like they are nobody besides Duke and UNc fans are excited about this game.

    It’s times like this when it’s evident Jones still has a ways to go til he reaches his full potential.

    Well, we will probably get spanked in the long run but at least that half was fun.

    He’s rendered useless when the opposing front line features guys weighing more than 175lbs. NBD.

    They aren't a good team. They are playing above their head right now. Keeling and Pierce have been awful and both played well. I do think Cole being more passive and picking his sports instead of trying to be so dominant has helped. Still, they are anti-clutch so as soon as the pressure amps up they will probably fold.

    Rivalry home game. Teams usually play up for these. And Carey is the only play for Duke who decided to show up in the first half.
