A Visual Representation Of UNC’s Year

The end of the year is always good for reflection and looking back where we’ve been. For UNC there was plenty good, a fair amount of bad and just weird stuff all the way around. The basketball team finally bounced back from the 2010 debacle with baseball doing the same. The NCAA scandal chugged along [...]

UNC vs. Elon: Beyond the Box

What a difference a year makes.  2010 was a year that Tar Heel fans won’t forget soon enough, as the calendar year saw the basketball Heels go a completely mediocre (which for UNC equals terrible) 18 - 18.  The year 2011, after a bit of a tumultuous start, has been much more fun, and has [...]

UNC 100 Elon 62

When the starters sit before the third TV timeout of the second half, you know its been a good day.

Comments if you have ‘em.

The Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: Missouri

Well, wasn’t that special?

I tried to share THF’s optimism in the game preview that UNC would want to finish this trying season on a strong note for interim coach Everett Withers and perform well in a de facto tryout for new coach Larry Fedora. Instead, Tar Heel Nation’s worst fears were realized when, after [...]

Missouri 41 UNC 24

Call me weird, but for some reason this best illustrates how the Butch Davis Era ended tonight in Shreveport.

I understand all the distractions, the upheaval, the fact Everett Withers has been spending most of this time on Zillow and the fact this game is being played in a terrible [...]

Independence Bowl: UNC vs Missouri

What: AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl Where: Independence Stadium, Shreveport, LA When: Monday, December 26th, 5:00 PM TV: ESPN2 Records: UNC 7-5; Missouri 7-5

The official end of the Butch Davis era.

The question facing UNC heading into this game is not so much how the Heels match-up with Missouri but one of focus and [...]

Christmas Weekend Is Upon Us So We’re Out of Here

Barring anything really unusual happening we are going silent until Monday when UNC takes on Missouri in the fabulous Independence Bowl. Yeah, I could have taken time to rip Luke DeCock’s latest piece of ABCer porn but who really gives a crap at this point right?

I am leaving you with a series of quotes [...]

UNC vs. Texas: Beyond the Box

That was emphatic.  North Carolina used last night’s first half to show that their defensive output against Nicholls was no fluke, nor was it entirely the result of beating up on a hapless opponent.  The Heels took KenPom’s 20th ranked team (and 20th ranked offense) behind the woodshed over the game’s first 20 minutes, and [...]
