Default ESPN's Top College Rivalries

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/colum...6&sportCat=ncb

1. Kentucky/Louisville
2. MSU/Purdue
3. Kentucky/Tennessee
4. Duke/UNC
5. Villanova/Pittsburgh


What!! Is this guy f*cking for real?
I could see UK/UL being in the argument for number one but 2 and 3 over Duke/UNC? Are you serious? It's pretty much consensus that Duke/UNC is the biggest rivalry in college SPORTS let alone basketball.
Ask most casual college basketball fan and they could give less than sh*t about MSU/Purdue
Read the rest of the list, and you'll want to give yourself a giant face-palm.
Some of these teams have been hot for a few years and all of a sudden, they're part of a giant rivalry.
I HATE both Duke and UNC and they're clearly the #1 rivalry. UCLA/USC/Cal/Stanford is bigger rivlary and that's a primarly football one .....
Who the hell cares how competitive it is right now, its not like Duke-UNC is UNC-Carolina Community College, NO! they're both f*cking elite basketball schools. Part of the rvialry is the tradition and the absolute hatred of each others' school. Who has more tradition and hatred than Duke-UNC, their history alone makes every year full of excitement

P.S. if this guy is basing it off anticipation for this years' showdown, Pittsburgh is going to blow this year, so why the f*ck is it #5

Uhh...Villanova's rivalry is with St. Joe's. It's called the "Holy War". And it's actually a good one. Nova won by 3 this year, St. Joe's actually crushed Nova last year. It's 5-3 Nova over the last 8 years.

...since when do they have a rivalry with Pitt?

I'm a lot more flummoxed by Purdue/Michigan being #10 than Purdue and MSU (though I do agree #2 is very high). One errant elbow makes it a top 10 rivalry?

Dayton - Xavier?
Not sure how big this is, but it gets no national attention, and although I wouldn't be surprised if there was a big rivalry, the magnitude of it pales in comparison IMO.

Where's that giant Pennsylvania rivalry? Temple,Penn,'Nova,'St.Joe's,LaSalle....... THAT'S A GIANT RIVALRY

I'd rather have Indiana-Purdue over the other Purdue ones....

Schools that HATE each other?
Duke - Maryland?

uhh... how the hell do you do the facepalm icon?

Top College Football Rivalries....
This guy is a _______________........
I can see how Texas-OU warrants a #1 spot considering last year, but one or two off years do not kill OSU-UMich's rivalry -_-

UT-UF #2?

This is based soley on the upcoming season. Just in case some people miss that part.

It also doesn't matter if you personally care about a certain rivarly.

Even if it does account only for next season, the only schools that have an argument to be in front of Duke-UNC is UK-UL

'Nova-Pitt? Apart from Big East, what rivalry do they have? And accounting for "entertainment", its going to be incredibly lopsided.

Purdue-MSU #2 really?

Its more of ESPN starting the hype machine for games they will likely broadcast. 2 top 10 teams right there. I hope commentators for these games aren't the same as Duke/UNC. That guy going "wow, that was amazing" or "can you believe that" after every shot hit got kind of annoying i about 30 seconds.
