Notes From UNC’s Pro Day

UNC held its pro timing day and according to Inside Carolina hosted approximately 100 NFL personnel including several head coaches. Not a bad showing and a definite sign the program is on the right track. Now the only thing Butch Davis needs to do is keeping talented players from committing NCAA violations so they can [...]

Update On Site Problems

After several days(weeks?) of repeated site issues I think we might have a handle on the stability issue plaguing the blog.

Over the past 24 hours I upgraded the web hosting plan and added a site caching plugin to the back end software to reduce the number of database queries which I concluded were overwhelming [...]

UNC vs. Kentucky: Beyond the Box

And so it ends.  I don’t know how anyone can think this was a good season, I mean last year’s team was still playing at this point in the season!

Obviously, I am kidding.

This was a tremendous season, especially when you consider that from December 1st on, UNC went 25-5.  Was it as ultimately [...]

Closing The Book On Some Other Kid

He is going to UCLA, which is in no way shocking.

Drew was officially enrolled as of Monday, the first day of spring quarter at UCLA.

Drew, who was a junior at North Carolina this year, left the Tar Heels [...]

Kentucky 76 UNC 69

There is only so many times you can put yourself in that position and expect to come out on top.

Of all the regional finals I can remember UNC losing, this might be as calmly as I have taken a loss. Part of that was the nagging feeling I had for two days that, for [...]

NCAA: UNC-UK Game Thread

A few months ago…

That dunk capped off a seven point run by Harrison Barnes. This was the first glimpses of the player so hyped in the preseason. As the season progressed, Barnes had more stretches like this and if he plays like that in the regional final, UNC might just find a way [...]

The Appetizer

Southwest: #1 Kansas vs #11 VCU, 2:20 PM, CBS

For Kansas this is a repeat of the 2008 regional final where they faced #10 seeded Davidson only VCU does not appear to have anyone as good as Stephen Curry. I know VCU has made an incredible run but I just don’t see them [...]
