A Tale of Two Seasons

Don’t worry, that is as far as any of my Dickens’ references will go; besides, I’m not even sure that this season (by Carolina’s lofty standards) would qualify as the “best of times.”  But what I do know is the general feeling about the Heels upcoming foray into the ACC schedule is a lot more [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Hooray for Time Warner - UNC/ECU game on TV

Wait, did I just actually write “hooray for Time Warner”? Wow.

According to a tweet from ACC Now, Time Warner Cable will be showing Saturday’s Carolina/East Carolina game at 3:30 on channel 520. I am assuming this is in the TWC service area in central and eastern North Carolina. The game is also scheduled for [...]

Wears Opt for UCLA

Worst. Kept. Secret. Ever.

I am guessing they wanted to see how “Lost” and “24″ turned out before making it official.

We can officially close the book on David and Travis Wear who will get to eat homemade macaroni and cheese while being role contributors in Ben Howland’s “offense.”

Here’s the deal. I have built [...]

Jack to visit Chapel Hill?

According to Adam Zagoria, it appears likely that the athletic PF/C from Rice H.S. in Manhattan will be making a trip to UNC in the near future:

Kadeem Jack is a hot commodity right now, so hot that the North Carolina Tar Heels have come calling and Jack is interested.

The 6-foot-9 senior forward out [...]

Updating The THF Countdown

So last year this was fun since I was dabbling in the top end of the countdown trying to figure out where to slot a national championship team among other national championship teams.  This season, evaluating the THF  Countdown is like putting lipstick on a pig since I am working at the other end of [...]

UNC Has Team Awards Banquet

I hesitate to post this since I am certain it will degenerate into a bash Marcus Ginyard and Deon Thompson session in the comments.  So consider this for posterity or something and try to stifle your worst opinions.  Was it just me or was the awards banquet woefully under publicized? Maybe I just missed the [...]

ACC Coaching Scorecard

Just to bring you up to speed.

Georgia Tech’s Paul Hewitt flirts with St. John’s but decides to stay in Atlanta. Yellow Jacket fans mourn.

Boston College fires Al Skinner and hires Cornell’s Steve Donahue.

Clemson’s Oliver Purnell surprises everyone, including people who allegedly know, by leaving for DePaul. No move yet from Clemson.

Wake [...]

Front Page Comparison

Via Deadspin.

This is a little comparison of the Charlotte Observer the day after UNC won the 2009 NCAA title vs yesterday. UNC enjoyed a giant splash on the front page whereas with Duke you were referred to the sports section. The Greensboro News & Record went pretty [...]

Twitter Noise: Ed Davis Staying?

I will stress this is from UNC player Twitter feeds and for all I know they could be screwing around.  However, given some other things I have heard, this is probably legitimate:

First up John Henson:

@ldrew2 they say @eddavis32 announcing his return this week…

Next Larry Drew:

RT @johnhenson31 @ldrew2 they say @eddavis32 announcing [...]
