Rich Rodriguez Is Not a Good Choice

I have always wondered about situations where a single guy likes a girl but she is happily dating some guy who treats her well. Then all of sudden the girl decides to leave her boyfriend and date the guy that likes her. My question for the first guy is why would you go out with [...]

The Coaching Search: Day 8

According to the ACC Now blog, Tulsa’s Steve Kragthorpe has said, in a press conference, that he is not interested in the job at UNC.

“I think the job at North Carolina is a great job,” Kragthorpe said, according to the Tulsa World. “Chapel Hill would be a great place to live. But I’m not [...]

Some Basketball News

Actually just one tidbit ahead of the first “real” action UNC will see this season when they play D-II St. Augustine’s in an exhibition on Wednesday.  Eddy Landreth at the Chapel Hill News takes a look at the Tar Heels during their open to the public scrimmage on Friday. 

They can go somewhere between [...]

Is Caulton Tudor Trying to Play King Maker?

I am beginning to think that is the case. Last week he said UNC should pursue Butch Davis but made it known he had reservations. On Sunday, Tudor said that Paul Johnson would bring a similar offense to what Jim Grobe is running at Wake Forest and that will not get the job done.

Also [...]

ACC Football Week #9: Review

So we have about four games left and this is how the road to Jacksonville looks.


1. Boston College, 7-1 overall, 3-1 in the ACC

This past week BC stepped out of the conference and might as well have played a high school team in MA considering the way they trounced Buffalo, 41-0. The [...]

Wake Forest 24 UNC 17

I listened to this on the radio, well most of it anyway and I can tell you I heard both the least used and most used phrase by a UNC play-by-play announcer this season and they were:

“Touchdown, Carolina”


“Dailey throws….INTERCEPTION”

Can you guess which one is which?

It was a better effort today, [...]

Wake Forest at UNC

Where: Kenan Stadium, Chapel Hill, NC When: Saturday, October 28th, 3:30 PM TV: ESPNU Records: UNC 1-6, 0-4 ACC Wake Forest 6-1, 2-1 ACC

The talk this week concerning this game has been about UNC playing with emotion and all I will say to that is if the Heels come out playing competitive football or [...]

UNC Ranked #2 in Coaches Poll

The first preseason poll is out for basketball and UNC is right where most everyone expected them to be at #2 behind defending national champion Florida in the USA Today/ESPN coaches poll. Kansas is third, Ohio State is fourth, and Pittsburgh and NCAA runner-up UCLA tied for fifth. Other ACC schools in the rankings are [...]

Mike Paulus is Not Running the Show

One part of a coaching transition is how the recruits presently committed to the school react to the loss of the coaches that recruited them. This was and still is a side effect of the coaching change at NC State and will undoubtedly have an impact here. It is expected some recruits will jump ship [...]

The Coaching Search: Day 4

To this point there has been a lot of talking, many trees killed in the name if speculating on who UNC officials might be considering, and really nothing new.  As of this morning we had four candidates that are allegedly at the top of the UNC list according to the always reliable “source familiar with [...]

ACC Football Week #9: Preview

Implications abound, emotions will be high, and whatever other cliches I can come up with between now and the end of this post.

Divisional Implications

#10 Clemson at Virginia Tech, Thursday, 7:30 ESPN

As much as you can have a must win, this fits the bill where Jacksonville is concerned. VT with three losses will [...]
