UNC-Illinois Game Thread

Here is the question. Do you think Illinois has gotten over 2005 yet? They have won a game vs UNC since then, in 2006 but does that really matter? We still get pissed about Indiana in 1981 and 1984 or even Boston College in 1994. Chances are the crowd will be amped for a chance [...]

UNC at #20 Illinois

What: ACC-Big Ten Challenge Where: Assembly Hall, Champaign, IL When: Tuesday, November 30th, 9:30 PM TV: ESPN Records: UNC 4-2; Illinois 6-1

Even before the season started, this was expected to be a tough game and the most probable game for UNC to collect a loss. Of course there was also the belief  the Heels [...]

UNC vs. CoC: Beyond the Box

When we did the basketball roundtable almost four weeks ago, I stated that the Charleston game was the first of the three most important games on the (regular season) schedule.  While the Heels certainly did not lay a beating on the Cougars, they did win, which is at least a small step in the right [...]

Coples Named First Team All-ACC

Interesting departure from the preseason poll which had five Tar Heels on the first team defense. Amazing what NCAA and academic suspensions can do.

Here are the full teams.

Junior DE Quinton Coples was UNC’s only first team selection. Coples was 3rd in the ACC with  8.5 sacks and tied for eighth with 14 tackles [...]

UNC 74 College of Charleston 69

Well, it was a win that required copious amounts of toughness and players who kept their heads in the game when it seemed like an opposing guard was set to take the game over. Outside of that, a solid defensive effort and the play of John Henson, who is an offensive force after all, many [...]

UNC-College of Charleston Game Thread

One request for the Tar Heels: Whatever you do, don’t make someone’s college career relevant tonight.

Comments if you have ‘em.

#25 UNC vs College of Charleston

Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: Sunday, November 28th, 5:30 PM TV: Fox Sports Records: UNC 3-2; CofC 4-2

So, it is commonly held that way back January 4th when UNC lost to Charleston it was the first domino on the now fully functional Year of Hell in UNC Athletics. Since that is [...]

Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: Duke

This is a prime example of why games are played on the field and not on the stat sheet.

UNC dominated Duke in nearly every statistic - total offense, turnovers, first downs, time of possession - and yet had to sweat out a final possession by the Blue Devils to secure its 20th win in [...]

UNC 24, Duke 19

Well, it’s better to win ugly than lose pretty, right?

UNC raced to a 24-10 lead in the 4th quarter and appeared to have things on cruise control until Duke made a game of it late. Shaun Draughn was stuffed for a safety and Duke scored a late touchdown, then forced a UNC punt on [...]

UNC at Duke

Where: Wallace Wade Stadium, Durham, NC When: Saturday, November 27, 3:30 PM TV: ESPNU Records: UNC 6-5, 3-4 ACC; Duke 3-8, 1-6

This ought to be fun.

Although UNC has claimed the Victory Bell 19 times out of the last 20 meetings with Duke, the games tend to be close. And given the propensity the [...]

Mike DeCourcy: Bench Larry Drew

Something for you while you are picking through the leftovers. Not to mention this will be another example of fans loving a columnist for one column when generally they accuse him of being pro-Duke or pro-UK or whatever. If you don’t believe me, go to Inside Carolina and count the number of times someone prefaces [...]
