thats the carolina rule. didnt you know that? the bracket committee are required per ncaa rules to always put duke and UNC very close to their campus in the opening rounds.
ohio state had to travel 150 miles plus miles to their opening games and they were the number one over all seed.
a few years ago , louisville was a number one over all and duke was a 2 or 3 seed . louisville played a 4 hour drive away. coach k stepped out of his office and hailed a cab to their games.
the real kicker was when about ten years ago , the number one over all seed was a big east team that had to open up all the way on the west coast. duke was around a five seed and they played 30 miles away from their campus.
lots of schools made a stink so the ncaa changed the rule and now the number ones are suppose to be within a half days drive of their campus on opening weekend.
however , that allowed them to continue to give special treatment to duke and UNC.
thus you have it , the carolina rule.
this rule does not apply to UNC state , wake forest , unc asheville or any other carolina school.
and they wonder why UK fans HATE duke and unc so damn much !
