You take a guy like Jay Billis, who was on the 1986 Duke team that lost to Louisville. Jay's a big TV star now, with a beautiful wife, two beautiful kids, makes a lot of money, he's got everything you could want in life. But he doesn't have that national championship, and he still, to this day, thinks back on that night and second-guesses plays and wonders if he could have done this or that.
