Bloody, vicious, rip-the-other-guy's-heart-out feudsalso known by the faux-diplomatic term "rivalries"are an integral part of college basketball. At least, they will be until football programs chasing TV dollars all align in geographically schizophrenic conferences stretching from sea to oily sea.

But that shouldn't happen for at least...what, three or four months?
