Kentucky-Louisville on Friday

Move over, Duke-North Carolina. There's a college hoops rivalry that might be better than yours: Kentucky-Louisville. They've split the past two national championships. One (Kentucky) beat the other in the 2012 Final Four. Their coaches (John Calipari and Rick Pitino) seem to forever be linked. They're the two highest-profile schools in the Bluegrass State. And they're set to square off Friday in the Sweet 16, with the defending champion Cardinals as the No. 4 seed and the talented-but-just-now-rounding-into-form Wildcats at No. 8. Who wins? And what do you make of this red-(and blue)-hot rivalry?
