Written by NICK SCHWARTZ and TIM MCGARRY

 

In an era of constant conference realignment and pro sports parity in most leagues, we’re all guilty of using the word “rivalry†to describe a meeting between two familiar teams a little too often. LeBron James sparked a bit of fan outrage when he said last month that there is no “real rivalry†in the NBA right now — but he’s right. Real rivalries are rare and special things that develop over time and require a delicate mix of ingredients to truly stand out above the rest.

3. Teams must meet every year.

 

Eliminates: Texas-Texas A&M, Kansas-Missouri, Syracuse-Georgetown, Florida-Miami

My revised list

 

Michigan V OSU

UNC v Duke

Texas V OU

Yankees V Red Sox-I don't see players throwing punches or penalties called due to trash talking. ESPN is a Yankee/Red Sox homers that all they broadcast is about them. It will be the middle of the offseason for baseball and they still will bring up the Yankees when their is nothing relevant.

 

" Breaking news from Yankee stadium: The grass grew another inch " We will have a hour broadcast watching its progress. "In other news, Mack Brown retires."

Solid list.

 

I personally think Red Sox vs. Yankees, Michigan vs. tOSU and Texas vs. OU are the best rivalries in sports (in whatever order you like). Iron Bowl is a fantastic rivalry but I think the other 3 are bigger games on a bigger stage (throughout history). Duke vs UNC is a good one but college basketball is a step below the other sports IMO.
