This was written by a Dukie (http://www.buzzfeed.com/nicholasschwartz/7-reasons-why-duke-unc-is-seriously-the-best-rivalry-in-spor), but does a nice job of remaining unbiased. I did not know until the end, when he identified himself as a Duke grad, that he had any rooting interest in the rivalry.

There are many highlights in the article, but my favorites are:

1) The gif of Gerald Henderson taking out Hasbro.
2)
"Many Americans refuse to pick a side and hate both Williams and Krzyzewski equally."
3)
"It's not just that basketball fans want to have bragging rights. Admissions officers from UNC want to admit smarter kids than those at Duke. Frat bros from Duke want to throw cooler, frattier parties than the frat bros at UNC. Duke president Richard Brodhead wants to have a bigger parking space and fewer tutoring scandals than UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp. "
