A preview of Red v. Blue

Red V. Blue Teaser from Rory Owen Delaney on Vimeo.

After the success of “The Rivalry” YouTube series, Adam Lefkoe and his crew are back with “Red v. Blue,” an full-length documentary about the Kentucky/Louisville rivalry.

Here’s a description from

Red V. Blue is a documentary about the Louisville-Kentucky college basketball rivalry, two schools separated by less than 60 miles. From the storied 1983 Dream Game to the legislation passed in its wake that mandated the annual clash, Red V. Blue details the extraordinary circumstances that helped create one of the nation’s fiercest college rivalries.

In addition to interviews with legendary coaches Denny Crum and Joe B. Hall, Red V. Blue includes press conferences with coaches Rick Pitino and John Calapari, as well as in-depth interviews with the voice of the Wildcats Tom Leach, sports writer Pat Forde, Card Chronicle’s Mike Rutherford and Kentucky Sports Radio personality, Matt Jones.

Enjoy this sneak peek of the film, which is still in production (release date TBA). And Card fans, I’d take moonshine over Four Loko any day.

    #1 – Walkin36 – They can’t. That’s the problem.

    #1 They also like toughing each other ALOT.

    They had more fun painting each other than they did at the game. Want to know how I know? They haven’t won in 4 years.

    So when does the lawsuit come in for copyright infringement? There is already a copyright given to the Halo (video game) series online called Red vs. Blue created by the registered Trademark Just saying, wouldn’t this possibly cause a stir? Much the like the WWF (World Wrestling Federation) vs the WWF (World Wildlife Fund)?

    Did somebody move UK or U of L when I wasn’t looking? Less than 60 miles apart?

    If there was no legislation mandating this game be played, would Calipari have cancelled it this year, similar to the UNC and Indiana games? Looking back on it, those were two very smart choices.

    @10 – those decisions were smart in what capacity, specifically. UK is much better than UNC this year.

    When you have not won a championship in 26 years, it’s hard to say there is a significant rivalry when your rival has won three championships in the past 15 years. Two championships, I guess that’s Elite.

    9. UNC isn’t canceled forever. It is merely on a temporary hiatus, thanks to scheduling problems with both schools. Cal in particular wanted the home and home series with UL and UNC to be staggered, rather than both home and both away. Taking a break this year means it is UNC’s turn for home next year, which puts UL as a home game with it. It just evens things out a bit. That with Baylor and Michigan State who will hopefully be decent means an interesting schedule, especially since the Big East/ SEC challenge is hopefully ending.
