Barnes Named ACC Rookie of the Week; UNC 23rd In AP Top 25

My first thought after realizing UNC would probably break back into the ranking was:

Oh good, just in time to go lose at Boston College then drop a game at home to FSU!

Needless to say the scars of 2010 still breed much trepidation and pessimism.

At any rate, the AP poll brings UNC in [...]

UNC vs. NCSU: Beyond the Box

With yesterday’s thrashing of the Wolfpack, and the completion of a 6-1 January, the Tar Heels now sit alongside Duke atop the ACC mountain.  More importantly, after losing 3 games in November, the Heels have now gone two straight months with only 1 loss.  Is it too early to start thinking about March?  Absolutely, but [...]

UNC 84 NCSU 64

Well, that was pretty much everything you could hope for.

UNC-NCSU Game Thread

And now….a poem.

Duke is puke

Wake is fake

The team I hate

Is N.C. State

Go Heels!

Comments if you have ‘em.

UNC vs NC State

Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: Saturday, January 29th, 2:00 PM TV: ESPN Records: UNC 14-5, 4-1 ACC; NCSU 12-8, 2-4 ACC

Someone call Admiral Akbar because what we have here is a trap game.

Amy Herman Needs New Business Cards Which Really Pisses Brett Friedlander Off

Earlier this week, UNC announced Amy Herman, assistant athletic director of compliance would receive a promotion to associate AD of compliance beginning on February 1st. The news release indicated Ms. Herman’s responsibilities would roughly be the same crap she has been doing only she is an associate AD instead of an assistant AD. In other [...]

UNC vs. Miami: Beyond the Box

For a young team, winning on the road is never easy.  This season, winning on the road in the ACC, for any team, appears to be especially difficult.  And winning on the road when you spot the opposition a 10-point (or greater) lead in the first half, is nearly impossible.  Yet, for the second time [...]

UNC 74 Miami 71

Let’s look at it this way. UNC reined in the big lead by halftime instead of waiting until the 2nd half. That’s progress right?

Actually the big lead by Miami early in this one bothered me but it didn’t. I think it had something to do with Miami hitting 6-8 three pointers and the belief [...]

UNC-Miami Game Thread

For your viewing pleasure the speed and strength of one Tywon Lawson.

UNC at Miami(FL)

Where: BankUnited Center, Coral Cables, FL When: Wednesday, January 26th, 7:30 PM TV: ESPN2 Records: UNC 13-5, 3-1 ACC; Miami 12-7, 1-4 ACC

Let’s hope the flight to Miami is not indicative of the manner in which this game will be played. Andrew Jones at Fox Sports provides a nice summary of Tar Heel player [...]

What do Reggie Bullock, Ronald Reagan, and Da’Norris Searcy Have In Common?

They’re all part of Tuesday’s UNC news and notes.

** Reggie Bullock has been named the ACC’s Rookie of the Week after his career-high 18-point outburst against Clemson that kept the Tigers winless in Chapel Hill.  Hard to believe, but Bullock is UNC’s first winner of the ROW honor since Brandan Wright in 2007. Bullock [...]
