No Thanks

Doyel is pumping the idea of a Duke-UNC final
. That's not a great
idea, to say the least. The closest the teams have come was in 1991, when
they both made the Final Four. Thankfully, Kansas beat UNC and the game
was avoided.

Before the game, there was an extremely intense scene as fans queued up to
enter the Hoosier Dome, with mostly UNC fans at one door, and mostly Duke fans
at another, taunting each other the whole way in. You got the feeling that
it could easily have escalated.

That was in the arena. In the Triangle, things could get very ugly,
both after the game, and for a while after. We don't even want to think
about who would win or lose. It would just be a nightmare.
