Obligatory “SOK & Wears Offer Weak Excuses For Leaving UNC” Post

We all figured this was coming at some point, it was just a matter if any of the three really offered any substantive reasons for leaving. Turns out they didn’t.

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.

Still Three Hours Behind

I am still in California working crazy 12-15 hour days and feeling like I am completely out of it because I am three hours behind everyone at home. Of course the Diamond Heels played like they were three hours behind all weekend. UNC followed up the huge series win over Florida St. by getting swept [...]

UNC Holds Team Banquet

UNC held its annual basketball team banquet last night and unlike Josh Selby at Kansas, Harrison Barnes was in attendance.

Tyler Zeller and Harrison Barnes were named co-MVPs of the team. Zeller also received awards for highest field goal and free throw percentage as well as the Athletic Director’s Burgess McSwain Scholar-Athlete Award. The award [...]

The 2011 Season: Beyond the Box

What a season.  Despite the fact that UNC started the season ranked 8th (AP) in the nation and ended season ranked 7th, and that Doc, THF and I almost nailed our preseason predictions, this season was nothing like what was expected.  For both good and bad reasons, this may have been one of the most [...]

NCAA Championship Open Thread

From Houston

NCAA Final: #3 UConn vs #8 Butler, 9:23 PM, CBS

Wait…9:23 PM? Why in the name of Dean Smith does this game start this late? I guess to capture the end of the game in primetime on the west coast. Midnight is pretty late to wait for One Shining Moment.

From the Tar [...]

NCAA Final Four Open Thread

From Houston

National Semifinal #1: #8 Butler vs #11 VCU, 6:09 PM, CBS National Semifinal #2: #3 UConn vs #4 Kentucky, 8:49 PM, CBS

For UNC fans there is a bit of a feeling that this could have been a national title the Heels could have “stolen” much the same way Duke did last season. [...]

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.

Larry Drew, the former North Carolina point guard, has enrolled at UCLA, according to sources.

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 [...]
