    That's very high praise.

    I love UNC. My favorite non-RI NCAAB team.

    I loathe Duke more than the Colts.

    I really really liked you before, but I love you now. I'm down with you in culture, PATRIOTism, and bleedin' Carolina Blue!

    Are you otherwise a URI Rams (pre-Harrick) fan?

    Cool, now I have another brother from another mother.

    In high school I always dreamed of playing for the Tar Heels. If only I didn't suck!

    I'm firs and foremost a URI and Providence College fan. I kind of root for both and bounce between the 2. My favorite NCAAB team was the Final Four 1987 Friars with Rick Pitinio (who I now hate) at coach and Billy "the kid" Donovan running the point. Second favorite team was the next year's 1988 Running Rams, coached by Tom Penders and led by my fellow West Warwick (RI) High School alum, Tommy Garrick (he's the one with the blind father) to the Sweet 16 after beating mighty Syracuse in the second round. Guess who URI lost to that year: Duke :mad: !

    Then, whenever the RI teams get bounced from March Madness, I root for UNC.

    Well, I did cough on them as they walked by, and I have the flu, so I guess we'll see :)

    You know, it's interesting that you mention this, because I think the "us against them" thing has made me care more about the pats as well, although I consider myself a pretty devoted fan of both teams. Part of it may also be high expectations- it's obviously easier to see your team lose when they weren't really expected to win than watch them choke away an undefeated season in the super bowl. And part of it is that when everyone hates your team, and enjoys seeing them lose, it's just that much more painful. Duke usually falls into that category as well, but this year we have much more of a young, underdog-type team.

    The other Duke/Carolina game this season was only a few days after the super bowl, and I was still so crushed that I couldn't even really enjoy the win. My fiance was running laps around the apartment woohoo-ing, and I was just like "...yay."


    Why is this kept in the main forum?,Not only is it not Patriots related but its not even football related except for some NFL player spectators.

    Who gives a crap about college basketball??, I don't

    I work at Duke, was rooting for my boys.

    Sad game this weekend, that Duke lost that is. My wife went to UNC, so she travelled to Chapel Hill to watch while I stayed in Durham. On that night, it is a house divided!

    One thing sucks even though I've worked here 3+ years it is impossible to freaking get tickets to Cameron Stadium. I must do it once before I leave back home in NE.

    I agree that this is probably not appropriate for the main Pats forum :)
