ACC Week #9: Preview

UNC and Virginia Tech already provided the ACC a major impact game for the conference on Thursday night.  Not to mention a great game to watch. According to Heather Dinich at ESPN.com, UNC’s win was bad for the ACC.  Seriously. Basically Virginia Tech’s third loss eliminates them from the BCS top fifteen. That along with [...]

850 The Buzz Blog Is Dead


For those of you in the Raleigh/Durham area, the local sports radio landscape is set to change on Monday with the disappearance of 850 the Buzz.  A few months back, Capitol Broadcasting which owns WRAL-TV, 101.5 FM and 99.9 The Fan made a move to purchase 620 AM WDNC from Curtis Media which also [...]

Sportsmanlike Conduct. #52. Defense.

I did not see this myself but saw it referenced on the IC message boards. Ken Tysiac at ACC Now confirms that UNC linebacker Quan Sturdivant did indeed go over to console Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams in the aftermath of UNC’s win over the Hokies.

Sturdivant’s teammates were dancing and celebrating the win, [...]

What They Are Saying This Morning: UNC Upsets VT

A run down of quotes concerning UNC’s win over Virginia Tech.

850 the Buzz:

It’s amazing what successful offensive drives can do for the defense. There is a direct correlation to having 3 drives of nearly 80 yards, which took up serious time, and a fresh Heels’ defense that vexed the likes of Ryan Williams [...]

UNC 20 #13 Virginia Tech 17

Barth II?

Time will bear out what I am about to write but this could very well be the game we all look back at as the one where Butch Davis and the program got over the hump.  One week after a crushing loss in their first ever home game on Thursday night, the Heels [...]

Everyone Say It With Me: UNC Is Talented But Questions Remain

I wonder whether national media writers hate doing stories on a team on which everyone has done the same freaking story and drawn a similar conclusion. Anyway, it is Mike DeCourcy’s turn to churn out the standard boilerplate on UNC Basketball: 2009-10 that can be summed us thusly:

“UNC lost players, blah, blah, blah, has [...]
