The Final Four: Open Thread/Running Commentary

or “Let’s all sit around and sulk over the fact UNC is not playing tonight” Thread. My guide to the least of all evils is not actually my thoughts on who will win tonight. I think UCLA exacts revenge on Florida for the loss in the tournament a year ago. Undoubtedly it will be ugly [...]

Jim Nantz Cheesy

Complete Sports is attempting to predict what cheesy line Jim Nantz will use for whoever wins the title next Monday night. Here are some of their guesses:

If Florida wins… - “‘Noah’ jokin’ around - Gators are champions again.” - “‘Noah problems for the Gators, they’re the champions.” - “No gruff for this ‘Billy’ - [...]

THF’s Guide For Deciding Who To Pull For In The Final Four

So the Final Four is set and for the second straight season not only was UNC shutout but so was the ACC which renders us Tar Heel fans as dispassionate observers. Of course it is basketball and Tar Heel fans are rarely dispassionate where that orange round ball is concerned. The problem with this Final [...]

Absolutely, Positively, Guaranteed to Make You Feel Better

Here are the “One Shining Moment” videos from 1993 and 2005. So kick back and enjoy because it never gets old and let’s do it again next year.



And if you really love “One Shining Moment” the blog, The Morning After, has every one from the past 10 years.

So I Finally Brought Myself to Watch It Again

There was some debate a few posts down about what happened so I was compelled to rewatch the tape of the game. I also figured it might be therapeutic to do so….I was wrong. At any rate here are some observations from having watched it with a cold clinical point of view:

The stretch which [...]

How Do We Refer to This Past Sunday?

Obviously we need some sort of label to refer to this past Sunday. Black Sunday or Bloody Sunday sounds too easy. I think it requires it’s own special moniker so we can refer to it in passing without talking about it in detail and traumatizing ourselves all over again.

Update: Given the tragic nature of [...]

UNC Basketball Season Review

First of all, congratulations to the 2007 Tar Heels for a great season. UNC tied for first place in the ACC, won the ACC Tournament and 31 games before ending up six minutes from the Final Four only to fall in overtime at the East Regional Final. UNC also extended their win streak over Duke [...]

UNC Women Are Final Four Bound

Let me just say that with six minutes to go I was all ready to write that for the men and yes I am having a great deal of difficulty getting past it….anyway.

The UNC women did what the men could not and made their way to the Final Four with a win over Purdue.  [...]

Oregon Duck and Florida Gator = Classy

Obviously this was on Sunday before Jason Ray passed. Nice gesture on the part of these two.  Also notice the Tar Heel on the bottom of the Gator’s foot.

We Could Have Used Rasheed Wallace on Sunday

The Detroit Pistons were down 98-95 with about 2 seconds left against the Denver Nuggets last night when the Pistons knock the inbounds pass away and former Tar Heel Rasheed Wallace picks up the ball and flings it from 63 feet away at the buzzer to tie the game.  Pistons win it in overtime.

He Is Not Going to Call A Timeout

On Sunday when Georgetown had cut the lead down to 75-70, UNC brought the ball up and [UNNAMED ANALYST] said, “Probably should think about getting a timeout here” and I responded, “He’s not going to call a timeout, so quit saying it.” And he did not because that is what Dean Smith did and that [...]
