THF Featured at Thirty Five Seconds

The college basketball blog 35 Seconds(run by the same folks who created the excellent college football blog Everyday Should Be Saturday) asked me to answer some questions as part of their Final Four preview for UNC. The preview is up now so feel free to drop by and take a gander.

Nice to See It Rates So Highly

Being a UNC fan and by nature a huge college basketball fan there are few things finer than Duke-UNC or watching either the ACC or NCAA Tournament.  Apparently ESPN.com Page 2 columnist Jim Caple agrees with this assertion as he ranks 101 things all sports fans must experience before they die. Here are the relevant [...]

I’ve Been Drafted!!!

Well, sort of.  It looks like I was taken by the New Jersey Nets at #17 in the Winning the Turnover Battle Blogger Draft in an attempt to keep UNC alum Vince Carter happy to he will re-sign with the team:

#17. New Jersey Nets: Tar Heel Fan of Tar Heel Fan The Nets are [...]

Because I Like the Picture

I am linking this article by Luke Winn at SI.com about NBA Draft sites like DraftExpress.com and NBADraft.net because (1) it is an interesting read about these sites and how important they have become and (2) I really like the picture accompanying the article.

Billboard Contest

The Wizard of Odds has been running a spoof billboard contest and last week an enterprising Wolfpack fan took a shot at UNC and Butch Davis. I decided to respond in kind.

Bill Simmons: The Curse of [UNNAMED ANALYST]

Bill Simmons basically says what we are all feeling about [UNNAMED ANALYST] in pointing out that aside from the a bit of a rabble rouser, he also has been doing the championship of college basketball for three freaking decades. Unfortunately he is not getting any better and as Simmons points out there is not a [...]

Apparently UNC Should Not Even Play Friday Night

I really shouldn’t write this because it is just one guy’s opinion of what may happen and we all know he is entitled to it.  And by no means am I expecting everyone to have UNC in their Final Four but when I read a second article from a national outlet basically telling us the [...]

Sounds Like Someone is a Little Bitter

Let me introduce you to Joe Rexrode. Mr. Rexrode is a beat writer in East Lansing, MI who had someone at Yahoo Sports afford him the gift of writing a special article about Saturday night’s 2nd Round East Regional game between UNC and Michigan State. What an absolute shame he wasted it with such an [...]

Will Blythe on Deadspin

Will Blythe who authored the fabulous book on the UNC-Duke rivalry, To Hate Like This is to Be Happy Forever, has been featured on Deadspin the past two days discussing the big game.  He gave a rather pessimistic preview yesterday which may have been a stab at reverse mojo.  Today he offered up praise for [...]

Yahoo’s Dan Wetzel on ESPN’s Knight Coverage

As most of the freedom loving world probably knows by now, Texas Tech coach Bob Knight made physical contact with a player on Monday night by tapping him on his chin to force him to look Knight in the face while he was “instructing” him on the finer points of college basketball. Naturally, ESPN took [...]

CBS Sportsline: The Rest of the Rankings

Gary Parrish at CBS Sportsline has given us more of those player rankings by position.  You can find my take on his PG and SG rankings  here. Three other Tar Heels were included in the small forward, power forward, and center rankings.

Parrish continued his penchant for naming freshman to high spots on these lists [...]
