The Week 1 Depth Chart

No real surprises here.  It appears redshirt freshman Jonathan Cooper has won a starting spot on the offensive line underscoring the thin nature of that unit as well as the uncertainty.

For now, Charles Brown has beaten out Jordan Hemby for the right to start opposite Kendric Burney at corner.  Zach Brown is listed ahead [...]

The 2009-10 Basketball Schedule

The 2009-10 basketball schedule became public last week. Nothing really surprising since we already knew the important non-conference games as well as who would be on the ACC slate.  Now we have dates.

Sexton’s Cheering Section

Former UNC quarterback Cam Sexton, who opted to graduate and then play Division II football at Catawba, led his new team to a 25-7 win over St. Augustine’s in Raleigh.  Among those in the crowd supporting the former Heel were Marcus Ginyard, Deon Thompson, Marc Campbell and several of Sexton’s former teammates including T.J. Yates, [...]

Rush The Court: UNC Team of the 2000s

Really, it’s Roy’s World, everyone else are squirrels just trying to get a nut:

Free Donte Paige-Moss!

Wait…the charges were dismissed? Okay, never  mind then.

I imagine the judge in Orange County saw this was nothing more than a fight between two teammates that just so happened to take place in a dorm room instead of the locker room and probably decided he would let Butch Davis handle it.  Which according to [...]

Officially Speaking John Calipari Has Never Coached In The Final Four

So technically speaking, Kentucky is paying a coach who has never been to the Final Four four million per year.

According to Gary Parrish, the NCAA is set to vacate Memphis’ 2008 Final Four appearance over the Derrick Rose SAT fiasco. Needless to say Mario Chalmer’s three pointer and the subsequent play of Kansas in [...]
