ACC Football Week #1: Preview

Here we go.   The silly season comes to end as we get real games to consider and speculate on.

ECU at #9 Virginia Tech

Let me go on record as saying that I think there is way too much stock put into the power of Hokie football as it relates to the events of last [...]

Changing the Culture

The N&O’s Robbi Pickeral examines the efforts Butch Davis is undertaking to change how football is viewed at UNC. Much of it reflects what I have been saying about the program improving even if the wins do not come this season.

New Blog Header

Let me send out a HUGE thank you to Zeke Smith for designing the new THF blog header which replaces the rather unfortunate one I tried to create using GIMP.  Zeke is a UNC grad who works as a freelance sports photographer and graphic artist.  He covers UNC for various publications and put together this [...]

2007 UNC Football Preview

Davis Suspends Backup Safety Cooter Arnold

Cooter Arnold, who last season moved from running back to safety in response to Trimane Goddard’s injury, has been suspended by Butch Davis for unspecified reasons.

But I Already Closed This Book

A Subtle Reminder of What a Crapshoot It Really Is


Here’s hoping those 3-9 predictions for the Heels are wrong as well….in the right direction.

ACC Football Preview

This season in the ACC could very well be remembered as the Year of the QB….and I don’t mean that in a positive way. The biggest storyline that does not involve the media telling us how much the Virginia Tech football team is going to somehow bring healing to Blacksburg is the fact there is [...]

Catching Up on Football

Based on my quick perusal of the practice notes and press conference quotes here is my take on the major issues facing UNC heading into actual game prep for James Madison on Saturday.

The offensive line has taken a hit with the loss of Ben Lemming and Wyatt Hicks to injury which really thins out [...]

ESPN’s Early ACC Basketball Preview

ESPN.com has been running a summer series called Shoot Around in which they preview the conferences. The ACC preview appeared at the end of last week with the expected high praise for UNC:

The Basketball Schedule

While I catch up on reading football practice notes and what not let me offer a quick take on the 2007-08 basketball schedule which was released last week.
