Marcus Ginyard Gets It

If anything is abundantly clear, it is that Tar Heel Fan is a big fan of Marcus Ginyard.  I love the type of player he is, one that has defensive prowess and generally puts forth a great effort every time out.  I have also made no bones about the fact I think he should be [...]

Five Pressing Issues for UNC

Let’s be honest. There are concerns with the 2006-07 version on the Tar Heels. The expectations based on the talent and the perception that no one in the ACC was even close may have been a tad high. Or maybe not. Maybe everyone else was much closer to UNC than we all thought. At any [...]

Carnival of Links to Stuff You Probably Already Read

I had a long weekend at work and also have been doing my taxes so the blogging has been light.  I should pick up the pace here this evening and through the rest of the season.  In the meantime let me defer to some of the fine articles out there on the interwebs

Adam Lucas [...]

Maryland 89 UNC 87

I knew it was coming.

When Bobby Frasor missed the layup at the six minute mark a feeling caught me in the pit of my stomach and when it was all said and one UNC blew a 12 point lead over the final six minutes and surrendered that precious one game lead in the ACC [...]

UNC at Maryland

Where: Comcast Center, College Park, MD When: February 25th, 5:30 PM TV: FSN Records: UNC 24-4, 10-3 ACC; Maryland 21-7, 7-6 ACC

I have been knee deep in patching servers in preparation for the new Daylight Savings Time date.  So this will be short.

I think UNC can show some serious intentions about winning the [...]

ACC Basketball Update(2/22)


UNC 83 NC State 64 Georgia Tech 75 Wake Forest 61 Virginia Tech 79 Boston  College 62 Miami 68 Virginia 60 Maryland 73 Florida State 55

Duke 71 Clemson 66


 Virginia will not win the ACC Tournament. How do I know this?  Because Florida is way to close to Puerto Rico. Whatever happened [...]

UNC 83 NC State 64

Revenge exacted.

This was about fresher legs in the second half.  NC State had foul trouble and could not keep pace with the Heels once the defense started cooking.  There is no way of knowing what impact Lowe’s absence had on the Wolfpack players in the second half.  I think the depth and defense get [...]

NC State at UNC: Live Blog

It is a simple enough plot. NC State upset UNC in Raleigh in what many Wolfpack fans harkened as a return to the glory days of Jim Valvano. Sidney Lowe, point guard on the 1983 NCAA title team, donned a red sports jacket and slayed the beast from Chapel Hill. Why? Because Lowe understands what [...]

NC State at UNC

Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: February 21st, 9:00 PM TV: Raycom/LF Regional Records: UNC 23-4, 9-3 ACC; NC State 14-11, 4-8 ACC

This would be a bigger upset than February 3rd in Raleigh because (1) NC State would be winning at Chapel Hill to collect an improbably sweep and (2) UNC knew [...]

Live Blogging Tonight? Yes. Yes I am.

It should be noted on this, the first anniversary of the Tar Heel Fan blog, that my first ever live blog was a year ago tomorrow and it was UNC at NC State in what was deemed by many Wolfpack fans to be a watershed game for the Pack and Herb Sendek.  Turns out they [...]

Tar Heel Fan is One!

It was one year ago this day that I, pretty much on a whim, decided to launch a blog based on my love of North Carolina basketball. I had been blogging for almost a year prior to starting THF most of that was either personal or politcally oriented. Since I had a passion for UNC [...]
