As a lifelong Duke fan, I sympathize with Paul's position, but I also understand the importance of a basketball rivalry, especially during March.

Trey Grayson, Paul's Republican Senate primary competition, is happy to take a whack at Paul over his basketball allegiance this month. Paul is a Duke Medical School grad. The Duke/Kentucky basketball rivalry has been seething since 1992, when Duke's Christian Laettner hit a buzzer beater to take Duke to the Final Four in a 104-103 victory over Kentucky that is said to be the greatest college basketball game ever played.

Take it away, Trey. "There are big differences between Rand Paul and me."
