The ACC/Big Ten Challenge: Night #3

Boston College 65 Michigan State 58

BC gets a nice on a huge double-double from Jared Dudley with 30 points and 10 rebounds.

Virginia Tech 69 Iowa 65

VT showed up and knocked off Iowa proving themselves to be one of the confusing teams in the ACC to get a handle on so far.

Purdue [...]

UNC 98 Ohio State 89

First off, let’s deal with the ugly. UNC continues to struggle on defense giving up too many three pointers and allowing dribble penetration all the way to the hoop for easy layups. The Tar Heels continue to play timid and were largely out hustled in the first half as well as allowing OSU to be [...]

Ohio State at UNC: LIVE BLOG

I have one warning about a live blog. I am usually intensely into a game of this nature which involves outward acts of destruction on unsuspecting inanimate objects so just know that this live blog could be halted if the game gets to a point where I am unable to form coherent thoughts using the [...]

Continue reading Ohio State at UNC: LIVE BLOG


As I mentioned earlier I will be doing my first live blog of the basketball season beginning promptly at 9 PM, so please stop by, drop some comments and pull for the Heels.

Ohio State at UNC

What: ACC/Big Ten Challenge Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: November 29th, 9:00 PM TV: ESPN Records: UNC 4-1, Ohio State, 6-0

This game is obviously a huge game and a giant test for two teams filled with a lot of very talented and young players. The atmosphere inside the Dean Dome will [...]

ACC/Big Ten Challenge: Night #2

Maryland 72 Illinois 66

This is a huge win for Maryland playing a good team in a truly hostile environment. Maryland is now 8-0 and looking like they should have been picked fourth in the ACC.

Wisconsin 81 Florida State 66

The Big 10 snags their first win of the challenge. It is readily apparent [...]

Where Have All The Wolfpack Fans Gone?

Last night when I was perusing the box score from the NC State-Michigan I noticed one very interesting stat. It was the attendance which was listed as 13,135 at the RBC Center which seats somewhere in the neighborhood of 18,000. Now far be it for me to call NC State fans out but I am [...]

It’s Pronounced “hands-BRO”

I was watching a preview of the UNC-Ohio State game on ESPN last night and Digger Phelps referred to Tyler Hansbrough as Tyler Hansborough, as in, rhymes with Hillsborough. This is the second ESPN analyst to mispronounce his name inside of a week. Steve Lavin did it repeatedly during the Gonzaga game. I am probably [...]

ACC/Big Ten Challenge: Night #1

NC State 74 Michigan 67

It was really never that close. NC State led by 7 at the half and at one point led by 21 in the second half. This all in spite of the fact senior point guard Engin Atsur was lost for the game six minutes into with a hamstring injury. Ben [...]

The Butch Davis Press Conference

The Butch Davis era has officially begun.

With great fanfare and a big media push UNC introduced Butch Davis as the head football coach of the Tar Heels on Monday. For the most part it was your standard dog and pony show press conference though I do think Davis is particularly effective in handling the [...]

Introducing Butch Davis

North Carolina has scheduled a 3 PM press conference today to formally introduce Butch Davis as head football coach for the Tar Heels. Of course this all comes with the backdrop of NC State starting the same process UNC undertook in late October. The Davis hire, if anything, raises the ante for NC State in [...]
