Eddy Landreth: Misinformation and Innuendo

Now that THF has had his say about the garbage spewed forth on both sides of the UNC football unpleasantness by two writers who once fashioned themselves as respectable journalists, I wanted to get in my two cents worth by looking at the Eddy Landreth piece itself and the misinformation and innuendo contained within.

Okay, I’m Sick and Tired of This Crap

Let me say, no one fan base has a corner on crazy. The internet and message board era of sports fandom creates countless forum where fans can anonymously spew the most inane and ridiculous statements without filter save the one the cleans up the profanity. It is an understood that every fan base has this [...]

Eddy Landreth: Hey, You Know Who’d Make A Good Sacrifice For The NCAA?

Always consider the motivations.

Via Tar Heel Illustrated

The NCAA, as with religions of antiquity, requires a sacrifice in cases such as the one that lay before Carolina with the official Notice of Allegations released this week.

This would be the ideal time for UNC to make that sacrifice and render a strong statement that [...]

Amy Herman Needs New Business Cards Which Really Pisses Brett Friedlander Off

Earlier this week, UNC announced Amy Herman, assistant athletic director of compliance would receive a promotion to associate AD of compliance beginning on February 1st. The news release indicated Ms. Herman’s responsibilities would roughly be the same crap she has been doing only she is an associate AD instead of an assistant AD. In other [...]

N&O Wars Episode V: DeCock Strikes Back

Alternate 80s movie reference title: Don’t mess with DeCock, young man - you’ll get DeHorns. (I’ve got a million of ‘em!)

Caution: what is about to be shared comes from message board innuendo, with all appropriate warnings and disclaimers:

N&O’s DeCock Anoints Himself High Grand Moral Arbiter of Bowl Game Worthiness

(H/T to THF for the title)

In anticipation of the wintry mix headed to the Triangle area on Thursday, the News and Observer’s Luke DeCock does his part to keep everyone warm by keeping the fires burning on the UNC football investigation with this hit piece on Wednesday.

The DTH Gives UNC and NCSU Fans Something To Agree On

And that is this column is really, really stupid.

If you would rather reserve brain cells for this weekend when copious drinking might be required, I will summarize most of the piece written by The Daily Tar Heel’s Jonathan Jones.

Political Writer Gives It a Go

In a hit piece sure to make the rounds of ABCers’ inboxes from Manteo to Murphy today, locally syndicated columnist Scott Mooneyham, who writes about North Carolina government and politics for the Capitol Press Association, takes UNC behind the woodshed for the lack of outrage over the current unpleasantness going on in Chapel Hill.

Filling the Silence…

…as we await what may be a big week in both prongs of the UNC football investigation.

Situations like this often bring out the nutcases, and there is no shortage of those in the Carolina football mess. But two (somewhat) prominent national writers are leading the charge in calling for Butch Davis to resign or [...]

More Helms hoopla

If you don’t live in Fayetteville, NC, and subscribe to the local newspaper or read it online, you may have missed the interesting seven-part series the Fayetteville Observer did about the 100th anniversary of Carolina basketball.  They chronicled the Tar Heel program decade-by-decade and had a number of features to go along with each highlighted [...]

Easily The Stupidest Thing You Will Read Today

What you are about to read is called stirring the pot and Josh Hailey at WRAL Fankind(no link for obvious reasons) basically shovels a bunch of manure onto the page then watches as the kids come along and play in it. It is traffic bait which Hailey readily admits up front with the classic “I [...]
