Retro THF: The Spelling Bee

Note: Originally posted June 2nd, 2006.

A 13 year old girl from New Jersey has won the Scripps Spelling Bee. Katharine Close spelled some word which she will probably never again use in her life but hey it was good for the gold last night. Close beat out Finola Mei Hwa Hackett of Canada [...]

Vote for the THF Billboard

Actually I think there are others which are funnier than the one I did but feel free to drop by The Wizard of Odds and cast your vote for my billboard in the contest over there.

UNC Baseball #3 Seed Overall

The NCAA Baseball Tournament bracket is out and UNC begins the road back to Omaha as the #3 overall seed. Vanderbilt is #1 and Rice #2 ahead of UNC who is followed by Texas, Arizona State, Florida, Arkansas, and San Diego. This basically means UNC can stay in Chapel Hill all the way through to [...]

UNC Baseball: ACC Champs

The Tar Heel baseball team, who came very close to winning it all last season, picked up some hardware in Jacksonville today winning the ACC Championship knocking off Wake Forest 3-2. The Heels also received word that they would be one of the NCAA Tournament regional sites for the first round of games beginning on [...]

Georgia Tech: Ruh-Roh!

At least I can imagine that is the general feel for Yellow Jacket Nation as Javaris Critteton makes the monumental mistake of leaving his name in the NBA Draft.  Looking at some of the mock drafts out there no one has him in the lottery and at least two have in at 22nd.   NBADraft.net had [...]

Apparently There is a Hanging on the Net Epidemic

Winning the Turnover Battle(hat tip Deadspin) delved into the Google Patent Search and found some fabulous sports inventions which will never see the light of day including a “no hang basketball net” which apparently will prevent thousands of playground basketball hoops from having their nets ripped down my wayward youth. Obviously the lack of nets [...]

Now We Know Who Will Playing Point After Lawson Goes Pro

UNC got it’s first class of 2008 commitment with PG Larry Drew opting to dawn the Tar Heel blue. This is a good catch during a recruiting period which had seen Delvon Roe change his commitment at the last minute. Drew’s father is an assistant coach which the Atlanta Hawks and based on what I [...]

Why You Should At Least Wait to Hire an Agent

The NBA had their fabulous dog and pony show otherwise know as the Draft Lottery.  When it all shook out Portland ended up at #1 followed by Seattle, Atlanta, Memphis, Boston(sorry Bill Simmons) and Milwaukee at #6.

Looks like Greg Oden is heading to Portland.  This is really a no brainer since they are filled [...]

Billboard Contest

The Wizard of Odds has been running a spoof billboard contest and last week an enterprising Wolfpack fan took a shot at UNC and Butch Davis. I decided to respond in kind.

Tudor: Looking for the Next Great Coach

Maybe I should just declare this “Caulton Tudor Week” on the blog.

Tudor discusses how Roy was once a virtual unknown toiling at the very bottom of the totem poll in the UNC basketball world before working his way up to where he is now, Hall of Fame coach who just had his contract extended [...]

Not That I Am Looking for Trouble…[UPDATE]

…but I would like to take issue with a response a UVa blog, The Sabre, wrote to my calling Caulton Tudor out for implying Matt Doherty was forced out because of his win-loss record.

Well, I’m sure DohMatt’s toxic personality was a part of it, but you don’t think winning only 4 and then 6 [...]
