UPDATE: A savvy reader points me to this youtube video illustrating the similarities between fight songs at UNC and URI.
Oh boy, this could get confusing.
So UNC and the University of Rhode Island are squaring off in the Final Four...of the NIT.
A couple points of interest here.
First, the mascots of both universities are rams.
But wait, there's more.
The color scheme? The one Tar Heel fans love to claim for their own? All that "Sky is Carolina Blue..." stuff?
Well, Rhode Island has the same color.
Here's your evidence.
On the left, there's former Rhode Island star Lamar Odom - better known these days as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers and Charles Barkley's sidekick in an absolutely awful new Taco Bell commercial.
On your right, a bunch of guys Roy Williams wishes he still had this season.
The game's next Tuesday at 9 p.m. on ESPN. Don't miss it.
