Year of Hell Timeline

This phrase was coined around September when yet another deluge of bad stories hit. UNC has had quite a year, possibly one of the worst across the board in terms of losing, bad news in general and the impression we just crossed into The Twilight Zone. Of course our NC State brethren will laugh at [...]

Another Look At The End Of Regulation

It all begins with the Todd Harrelson catch and unbelievably stupid penalty on UT’s Janzen Jackson after he launched himself into Harrelson. The real comedy begins when John Shoop inexplicably calls for a run play with zero timeouts and only 16 seconds left in the game. I guess that would have been [...]

UNC 30, Tennessee 27 (2OT)

Well, that’s fitting - a bizarre finish to a bizarre football season.

UNC was dead in the water after blowing a second-half lead against Tennessee and having Dwight Jones drop a pass in the hands on 4th-and-20. The Heels forced a 3-and-out but had the ball at their own 20 with just 31 seconds to [...]

Music City Bowl: UNC vs. Tennessee

What: Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl Where: LP Field, Nashville, TN When: Thursday, December 30th, 6:30 PM TV: ESPN Records: UNC 7-5, Tennessee 6-6

Alternate title: The So You Thought You Could Duck Us Bowl

UNC vs. Rutgers: Beyond the Box

I am going to state the obvious here: Good riddance, 2010!  While 2010 will never be a year that Carolina fans spend much (any??) time reminiscing about, the current squad has at least done a solid job of sending it out on a high note.  Tuesday night’s 23-point win over Rutgers gave the Heels consecutive [...]

UNC 78 Rutgers 55

For a game coming off the Christmas break, which included some insane travel arrangements and one starter missing both practices I thought that went pretty well. Sure it was Rutgers. Sure, there were a few runs of turnovers but that was not unexpected. And the point guard play continues to underwhelm while the interior game [...]

UNC-Rutgers Game Thread

Despite being closer to New York than anyone else Dexter Strickland was the last Tar Heel to arrive joining his teammates today. Strickland drove in from his home in Rahway, NJ having missed two days of practice due to the weather. New Jersey got something between 20-30 inches of snow. Walk-on D.J. Johnston also joined [...]

UNC vs Rutgers

Where: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY When: Tuesday, December 28th, 9:00 PM TV: ESPN2 Records: UNC 8-4; Rutgers 9-2

Since we still operate with a “take nothing for granted” view on UNC basketball, I am not taking this one for granted. After all, Rutgers is 9-2 with wins over Miami and Auburn but losses [...]

Anthony Elzy Out For Bowl Game

Academic reasons.

Usually when a player is lost for “academic reasons” after the semester is over it means they did not make the required grades or credit hours during the fall term. It is sort of surprising considering Anthony Elzy is a senior. You would think his academic credits and what not are mostly in [...]

The Snowpacalypse Is Here

Fortunately at the THF Homestead we have plenty of bread, milk and new Wii to entertain ourselves.

Unfortunately for UNC had to change travel plans for the Heels’ game in New York on Tuesday night. Originally Tar Heel players were going to meet in New York but now  they decided to meet in Chapel Hill [...]

This Past Year Feels Like UNC Has Been Enrolled In The Jelly of the Month Club

This past year has seemed liked UNC should have gotten a big bonus check but instead got stiffed with a membership in a jelly club. It really has been the gift that keeps on giving all year round.

To everyone in the THF Community a Merry Christmas from [...]
