Remember Those Robert Goulet ESPN Basketball Commercials?

Apparently singer/actor Robert Goulet died yesterday and 850 the Buzz honored him by posting a couple of college basketball commercials he did for ESPN during the 90s.

The one below was about Dean Smith:

UNC Committed No Violations[UPDATED]

UPDATE: I emailed Stever Kirschner at UNC and asked how a school could determine on it’s own whether a violation occurred. This was his response:

Our compliance staff reviewed the situation and determined there was no violation. Had they determined otherwise, they would have reported it to the ACC as a secondary violation, which also [...]

Being #1

This is not meant to exude any sort of arrogance but I am always a little amused at how quickly folks point out to you that being #1 in the preseason or any other poll during the year “does not mean anything” and “all that matters is the final poll” or even “everyone is going [...]

ACC Football Week #9: Review

I know nothing, really nothing at all, except I was smarter than everyone else who fancies themselves football experts and backed Boston College on Thursday night.

Wake Forest 37 UNC 10

That did not go well.  This was probably the most maddening loss of the season for all the things that went wrong plus the general failure to execute on special teams and in some parts of the offense.  Full analysis after the jump.

UNC at Wake Forest

Where: BB&T Field (formerly known as Groves Stadium) When: Saturday, October 27th, 12:00 PM TV: Raycom/Lincoln Financial Regional Records: UNC 2-5, 1-2 ACC; Wake Forest 5-2, 3-1 ACC

Given the peculiarities found in Jim Grobe’s spread offense it is a good thing UNC had the bye week prior to seeing the Deacons.  And if UNC [...]

ACC Football Week #9: Preview

And now for the rest of the story.  Virginia Tech and Boston College kicked off the weekend with a highly important and great game on Thursday night.  Things can only go down from here.

Open Plea to the ACC: Fix the Officiating Now

If you watched Boston College rally late in the fourth quarter to knock off Virginia Tech last night you saw yet another horrid display of officiating from the ACC. As though having bad officiating is enough of a pain, the ACC continues to embarrass itself on national television week in and week out with inconsistent [...]

And The Quest For a National Title Begins From the Top

The USA Today/ESPN coaches poll was released for the upcoming season and UNC is ranked #1. Of course they are only five points ahead of UCLA and eight points ahead of Memphis but all that means is this should be a fun season to watch.

As for ACC representation, Duke is #11 and NC State [...]

ACC Football Week #9: Boston College at Virginia Tech

I am breaking form and separating this game from the rest since it carries such significance.

First of all, I think the odds are pretty good this game is a preview of the ACC Championship. Granted Clemson, Wake Forest, Miami and Georgia Tech will have plenty to say about that before it is all said [...]

A Few Thoughts on the Arkansas Rumor

The first round of rumors have sprung up and Butch Davis has issued the pseudo-denial/leave the door open/keep everyone focused on the current season statement.  I would be lying if I said I was not concerned about Davis leaving but only because of the alma mater/family connections in Arkansas.  I refuse to buy into the [...]
