Biggest Game Ever?

*Note – If you’re a regular reader, you will most likely pass right by this post as it’s not my “normal stuff”. However I am a diehard Tar Heel fan that is a bit emotional with the disarray that my team has become the last year and a half. My unsettling amount of Duke fan friends will take great delight in this post. One other person might find it while doing a search for Tar Heel images. However I gotta get this off my chest…. Is it overstating tonights matchup, at The Dean Dome, where Clemson has NEVER won, to … Continue reading Biggest Game Ever?

What Not To Wear

Yesterday I opened my Google Reader and, like the rest of the “Tar Heel Family” was shocked to read that David and Travis Wear have decided to transfer from North Carolina to a destination which has yet to be announced. Because I am obsessed with North Carolina Basketball, I went looking for answers last night. Since you can believe everything you read on the internet, that was my source of information. It is a bad source. Something is wrong. People don’t transfer out of the Mecca of College Basketball (insert your lame NIT jokes here). After a season that was one new rock bottom after another, this announcement found another way to go just a little deeper.

The Faith of Tyler Hansbrough

If you have followed this blog for any time at all, you know how I feel about the following: 1) “The Boy” 2) The North Carolina Tar Heels 3) Tyler Hansbrough You also may remember that on more than one occasion I have posted about how “the boy” asked me if Tyler Hansbrough was a Christian. If you click on the link, you will see that at the time he asked me, I had to say “I didn’t know”. Well imagine my surprise today when a friend on Twitter mentioned that she just finished reading an article about the faith … Continue reading The Faith of Tyler Hansbrough

Bullock Calls Coach K “A Rat”

Clearly Roy Williams hasn’t gotten in touch with Reggie Bullock yet. While I am not disagreeing with Mr. Bullock, I would say that he needs to learn to keep his thoughts and comments to himself. The Carolina Duke Rivalry has enough sauce already. Big words coming from a guy that hasn’t stepped on campus yet. Hope his play is as strong as his opinions and I mean that sincerely. At least Barnes and Marshall know better. Dean Smith would have a fit if he heard incoming freshman saying this. On behalf of all Tar Heel fans, I would tell Reggie to let his play do the talking. Act like you’ve been there. Respect the rivalry. Call Tyler Hansbrough if you have any questions.

Tar Heel Blues

Tip-off of Duke Blue Devils vs. North Carolina...

Much has been made this season about the fall from grace of my beloved Tar Heels. I’m okay with that. One reason is that until Monday night when they crown a new champion, North Carolina is still NCAA Champ. The Tar Heels have also been the punchline of many jokes this season. It’s all a part of being the best. When you fall they will line up to point it out.

Tonight the Tar Heels will play Dayton for the NIT Championship. You know the “Not In Tournament”? The one that wins can lay claim to “We’re number 67”! Like I said on twitter earlier today, it’s feels kind of like when you take a walk in softball. It’s helpful, but just not the way it was meant to be. All that to say that I’m proud of my Heels. They could have mailed it in or worse yet, decline the invite to the NIT (which many recommended they do). They have actually won 7 of 9 and 4 in a row. They have also won all but one of those games on the road in hostile environments. It is all going to help next season when they return to “Elite” status.
