I can't help but to smile.

Wait about 5 minutes for the Dook and UK fans to get in here and say something bad about UNC.

UNC has become the most hated program in the country.

Duke REALLY hates you now.
Kansas hates you, but not as bad after they killed you in the Final Four.
Kentucky hates you.
Michigan State hates you.
Every other team in the ACC hates you.

The only people who don't hate you are the people who hate UK or Duke worse and see you as "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" (see: Louisville, teams Duke screwed over in the tourney, etc.)

It's going to be nice being the good guy program that knocks you out.

UNC has a nationwide fanbase? By nationwide you mean outside of the Carolinas right?

College basketball doesn't even have a nationwide fanbase until March.

Yeah, that was good stuff...But I can certainly understand why K would've been upset. Too funny about chrissy following him down the hall.

Really. Care to explain how UNC is in the top 5 of overall collegiate merchandise sales every year and was #1 from '01-'06 without a nationwide fanbase?

Because regionally they are immensely popular and this is the Mecca of college basketball. I am sure that UNC has one of the biggest fanbases if not the biggest in college basketball but college sports in general are a regional thing not national.

You'd have to live/travel outside of the SE to see that, JR. Perish the thought.

while you will see Carolina fans spread out all over the nation, fans out west despise Carolina and all east coast basketball.....sure you will find fans out that way, but as a majority they cannot stand how the east coast gets all the media attention...Same thing up North, because we all know that is Duke country with Big East Fans who always think that they are better than ACC teams

Carolina sells a lot of stuff because of their colors. Kentucky has twice the fan base...passionate fans, not bandwagon fans...that Carolina has.

Remember the 95 regional final in Birmingham? Kentucky fans outnumbered Carolina fans at that game 3 to 1. Every time UK plays in Hawaii, the stands are full of UK fans. Puerto Rico, L.A., doesn't matter.

UK also gets invited to bowl games when we are 6-6 because the bowls know we will buy up tickets.

So just because a bunch of gang members wear UNC stuff doesn't make you the most popular program in the country. Not even close.

It's not even that, for a vast majority of NE and West Coast sports fans, college sports isn't really on the radar until bowl season and March Madness. It's pro sports.
