Even though our guys are falling apart and college basketball mostly exists right now solely to make us sad, it's impossible not to be fired up by a fiery North Carolina-Duke game when both teams are in the top five. And Vitale's back tonight too. They should have eased him in with a Gonzaga game or something.

Duke Basketball Report says today is like Easter Sunday, but we'd go with Halloween: A bunch of doofy people in masks pretend like they're hurting each other. As you'd probably guess, The Truth About Duke is fired up for the game. But we're still a little worried about Dick Vitale. Of all the games to return with, it's this one? He might lose it before he even has it back.
