Rumblings in Raleigh

I rarely post about rival schools but since things on the Tar Heel side are fairly quiet I thought I would highlight the week NC State is having.

It all started with four NCSU football players being popped for marijuana possession. Click on the link to get my take over at TSB.

Then things turned [...]

Roy on Tar Heel Tour

Roy Williams was in Charlotte last night on the Tar Heel Tour where he answered questions from fans about the program. A poster at Inside Carolina did a summary of Roy’s answers. I will post them as is and you can pick through them.

Question about APR/Scholarships being removed from teams with low grad rates [...]

Obligatory Roy Fist Pumps Redick Air Ball Video

Wait..that was it? They way I heard this talked about, it sounded as though Roy stood up and gave a solid fist pump. That looked like he was adjusting his sleeve. Something tells me people are making more of that than it was which would not be unusual where Roy Williams is [...]

Be On The Look Out For Balcony Jumpers

This morning on Twitter, Bobby Frasor posted a link to this picture on THF(which is the first link that comes up in Google images. Score!) This is a scene from the infamous pool jumping incident in 2008 involving Frasor, Tyler Hansbrough and Marcus Ginyard. Good times.

Frasor, like [...]

Thomas, Wilson Selected in NFL Draft

A couple of former Heels got calls from NFL teams in the latter rounds of the league draft on Saturday.

Defensive end E.J. Wilson, who was a longshot to be drafted, was taken in the fourth round by Seattle.

Nose tackle Cam Thomas was taken in the fifth round by the San Diego Chargers. It [...]

Weekend Open Thread

Obviously things have really quieted down so blogging will be light this weekend.

UNC men’s lacrosse got whipped by Maryland in the ACC Semifinals. Maybe they are using the Roy Williams approach of losing the ACC Tournament then winning the national title.

Former UNC DT Cam Thomas is still waiting on the NFL Draft to [...]

The NCAA announced a new TV deal with CBS/TNT for the NCAA Tournament. The contract will be 14 years in length and pay out over $10 billion(yes, Billion) for the rights to broadcast March Madness.

The ACC had a teleconference on Wednesday with all of the league coaches talking about spring practice. Yes, practice. We are talking about practice.

Offensive line injuries continue to haunt UNC like bad [...]

Some Offseason Minutiae To Digest


UNC has announced who will be wearing what numbers next season which usually only matters for the freshman unless someone is looking to switch numbers which is the case here.

UNC basketball jersey numbers of note for 2010-11…Strickland 1, McDonald 2, Marshall 21, Bullock 35, Barnes 40…rest of team no changes

Dexter Strickland will [...]

UNC and Twitter

UNC held a panel discussion this morning at the Issues in College Sports Syposium on the use of Twitter. Everyone at THF knows that following the Tar Heel players Twitter account is one of the best sources of information on the team. It also yields great insight into the players themselves, especially in terms of [...]

In case you missed the news over the weekend, Buzz Peterson has left Appalachian State, traveled about 300 miles down U.S. 421, and landed as the new head coach at UNC-Wilmington. Peterson had a successful return in his one-year stint back in Boone, leading the Mountaineers to a 24-12 record.

Peterson is taking some internet [...]
