Biggest Rivalry in College Basketball

As you all know, we are avid Carolina Tar Heels fans. Both my husband and I went to school in Chapel Hill. We were married in the United Methodist Church on Franklin Street. Both of our boys were Christened in that same church! We are HUGE Tar Heel fans! And I am happy to report that we REALLY REALLY REALLY dislike Duke.

Of course we brainwash our children to have the same affinity to Carolina that we do! It has at some times been a little embarrassing. For example, when we pass someone out in public with Duke gear, my boys have been known to point and say "oooh...Duke"! I think we have just about curbed that behavior (because I really don't like them doing that), but deep down I am a proud MaMa!

So tonight we will be in Carolina Blue in front of the big screen cheering on our Heels - hoping for a little more of this... Hopefully our seniors can go 4 - 0 tonight in Cameron! Now that really would be unprecedented! With this rivalry, no matter the records or rankings, it will be a battle 'til the end!!!

I can totally relate to this post. We are HuGe Arkansas Razorback Fans. We love our HOGS! Yeah, our 3yr. old son sings the fight song!

Some of our best frinds live in Raleigh...except they are NC State Fans. :)

Hope ya'll get a win, tonight!

I am a big Duke fan, and was at the game last night. Just wanted to say congrats and your Heels played a terrific game!

Ok, I admit. "Dummies" wasn't the first word that popped into my head! :-)
