You can look at it either way. I contend that, even though the scale is different between UD/X and UNC/Duke, the concept of “proximity breeding rivalry breeding success” could work to the advantage of both the BE as a whole and X specifically, if only they would give that concept a chance. At this point, though, that’s their choice, and all UD can do is keep winning games, getting to The Dance, and making itself a desirable acquisition.

Also, regarding facilities vs. coaching vs. anything else, all you need to do is compare Cameron to The Dean Dome. Polar opposites in terms of intimacy and (presumably) amenities. Yet both have several NCAA banners hanging from the rafters. Yes, proximity has really hurt those programs.
