Wisconsin has all too often been K-State's bete noire. It's not a rivalry in any sense, after all, as our friends from Austin will be happy to tell you, a rivalry involves both teams winning once in awhile.
But Wisconsin happens to end K-State's season in one sport or another far too frequently for any of us to be happy they're playing for the national title tonight.
On the other hand, they're playing Duke, which means the only person here who won't be rooting for either Wisconsin or a natural disaster is Panjandrum. Frankly, I think that being allowed to become a Duke fan at such an impressionable age might be deemed neglect, but that's just me.
