Duke-North Carolina remains the standard for college basketball

Two days after Alex Rodriguez, we get Dick Vitale on steroids for North Carolina at Duke.
So that makes it Psycho V (Vitale), vs. Psycho T (North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough) vs. Psycho Fans (Cameron Crazies).
Tonight’s game represents the closest ESPN can get to bringing you an NCAA championship game without getting sued by CBS.

It’s no all-points bulletin to suggest college basketball, from November through February, has become diluted and overexposed. The sport is so back-loaded now to three weeks of NCAA tournament madness in March that college football actually uses it as a cautionary tale in its anti-playoff argument.
