Beween Duke And UNC, There Are No Guarantees
UNC is coming to Cameron, and for the first time in memory, it seems anti-climatic. But that's just when the rivalry is dangerous. UNC is playing as well as it has played all year, and though that's frankly not very good, Duke wasn't very good in 1995, or 1973, or 1974, and Duke took UNC to the wire and won a huge upset in one game, when UNC was #3, and Duke was pretty much in the toilet. You may think UNC has no shot, and a lot of UNC fans may think that. But history tells us otherwise, and only a fool ignores history. You can count on this: everywhere every member of UNC's team goes, people are urging them on. And you had better believe that either this game, or the rematch which will now happen in the ACC Tournament, would redeem UNC's season for a lot of people. Duke will be favored, but UNC is likely to come after this game like a bunch of angry badgers. The teams are pretty far apart in every meaningful measure this year, but one: passion. They would love to be able to pull this off, and they're not going to give up pre-emptively.
