The devil went down to Indy…

In the battle of evil vs. evil….

how are you supposed to choose sides?

DUKE-VS-LOIUSVILLE-PREVIEW-THUMBIs the evil closest to home the obvious choice?

Yes, Louisville hails from my home state, but they are Kentucky’s bitter rival — one that we know all too well.

That’s what makes a Louisville win particularly repugnant.  We’ll never hear the end of it — from the local media and from ‘friends’ who wear Cardinal red.

So then — is the evil from a dread rival the obvious choice?

I’ve hated Duke as long as I can remember.  Christian Laettner’s last-second shot is like nails on a chalkboard, and yet every March, Kentucky fans are forced to re-live it again and again.

An NCAA tourney where Duke loses is a good tourney…but do I want them to lose to Louisville en route to a Cards championship?

Not necessarily.

I gotta say — the two teams imploding at game’s end is about the only outcome that works for me.
