Behind The Scenes With Blue Steel

Via Reese News.

Blue Steel member D.J. Johnston carried his video camera everywhere(or so it seems) when the team was in Newark for the NCAA Tournament. This is simply video evidence of how much fun these guys had this past season and what makes this group in particular special.

    You go Z!! …Next year Stillman & Z will make one diabolical pair. Two cut-ups cut from the same cloth.

  • 850inExile aka UNC RAJ

    ^Dude - Stillman is just a smokescreen. Jackson Simmons is the real star of the 2011 recruiting class. The Plumlees should be afraid. Very afraid.

  • unc steph

    What a special group of young men. So nice to see there private sides. They all seem to have great chemistry. Love my Heels

  • scl11

    Since it is a slow news day, any thoughts on Alex Murphy reclassifying into the 2011 class and joining Duke a year early.

    This should be a no brainier right, I mean since it worked out so well for Andre Dawkins who came to Duke a year early and was just a shooter at the time, and now Dawkins going into his 3rd year has developed into, oh, never mind……….

  • 850inExile aka UNC RAJ

    ^Just another wing player on a team that’s already full of wing players. Doesn’t help them balance out their offense.

  • textual heeling

    Just read on the wire that all of UK’s guys (Liggins, Knight and Jones) are opting for the draft, but not hiring agents. Frankly, I’m disappointed. I wanted to beat them at full strength next year, just so there wouldn’t be any excuses.

  • uncgirl50

    Harrison Barnes singing Friday. Just wow. Thank you Blue Steel for this insight into this special group of guys.

  • RVD26

    Awesome. Just awesome.
    Leaving for Greensboro, NC tomorrow morning (I live in Houston, TX).
    Will be sure to stop by the old campus while I am in town.

  • makeitWayne22

    Always like seeing the real side of them, shows how young they really are… Awesome vid

  • keithunc

    where do we get that Black Falcon t-shirt?

  • uncgirl50

    Excellent question Keith. I want one of those shirts.

  • briarcliff

    Johnston: “Where’d you get the shirt?”

    Barnes: “-Uhhh… I don’t know.”

    Hmmm, sounds like Barnes might be covering up a possible impermissible benefit to me. Someone needs to alert StateFansNation.

  • Heel To The End

    UH OHHH, William. the Heels just got a commitment from TWINS.

    the Lady Heels, that is.
    6’4″ twins from Raleigh Millbrook.

  • 850inExile aka UNC RAJ

    ^But they are from NC, not California. Otherwise Ben Howland would already be recruiting them for his 2012 Transfer Class.

  • PRGuy

    Anytime I see a reference to the “twins” I actually flash back to Rodrick and Lodrick Stewart, two brothers from Washington state who claimed they got scholarship offers from Matt Doherty and that they were definitely coming to UNC. Whether true or not, they enrolled in other schools and had undistinguished collegiate careers. For some reason the “twins” got a lot of attention on message boards.

  • gregrustin

    what would have happened if barnes said where he got the shirt

  • textual heeling

    I have it on good authority that the Plumlee brothers are actually triplets, but two of them got held back in school. Apparently their teachers assumed they weren’t too bright because they expressed a fondness for Duke…

  • Heel To The End

    ^i just call all three Murton.

    so, Larranaga is getting a jump on his south Florida retirement. thats good thinking.

  • textual heeling

    I actually think Roy coming to UNC has weakened the ACC as a whole. With he and K here, I think coaches look at other vacancies in the conference and say, “Meh, why bother?” At pretty much any other school in other conference a confident coach could think - “You know, I can turn this school into a powerhouse.” But they all know it ain’t going to happen in the ACC…

  • Heel in Purple

    ^Agree, although there was a rumor that Paypal was thinking about coming to Raleigh to hear about the offer. Apparently he likes the idea of tangling with K and Roy every year but then he heard about the State academic requirements and decided, “eh, nevermind.”
