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 [...]

Ranking the NCAA Tournament Champions

Well, with the close of that monstrous version of “One Shining Moment,”  (seriously, is the NCAA determined to ruin everything about the Tournament?) Duke is the new National Champion.  The crowning of a new champion always spurs a desire to rank them against their predecessors; this desire is even stronger when the new champ is [...]

Coping With a Duke National Title

Needless to say this season for a UNC fan could be called the worst case scenario.  A year ago we were all in Blue Heaven.  UNC won a 2nd national title in five years. Roy Williams seemingly had a train rolling that no one was going to slow down. In fact we were all so [...]

NCAA Championship Open Thread

We hold out hope that Butler figures out how to stop Duke from reigning threes down on them or better yet Duke shoots 2-25 from behind the arc.  Otherwise, I don’t there is much that is going to prevent Duke from winning their fourth national title nor derail the media train which will proclaim that [...]

28 Years Ago Today…

Dean got his first.

The Beginning of the End

The NCAA Tournament opens up business today, without our beloved Tar Heels which means in a little over three weeks, UNC’s reign as national champion will end with a whimper instead of a bang.  Among the frustrations of frustrations this season, this might be chief among them.  Instead of UNC being in the tournament and [...]

Worst. Bet. Ever.

From Marc Campbell’s Twitter feed:

Now, which is actually sadder? Being some random fan who makes a stupid bet or being two nationally televised basketball analysts who make the same pick in front of millions of people on the basis of some half baked sentimental idea of destiny?

Another Book About the 2009 Title Team?

It appears so.

Dan Wiederer of the Fayetteville Observer is writing a book entitled Blue Streak about UNC’s 2009 national championship team due for release early this year.  Wiederer was interviewed this morning by Adam Gold and Joe Ovies on 620 the Buzz. Basically the book will be a combination of Fayetteville Observer articles and [...]

Have A Merry Christmas

I am going to close it down until Saturday when Butch Davis and the Tar Heels head to the Car Care Bowl against Pitt. In the meantime enjoy the next couple of days with friends and family. It has been quite a year for UNC fans and of all the “gifts” we received this year, [...]

One More Time

Today is Media Day for the the 2009-10 basketball season. Practice officially kicks off tomorrow at UNC’s Late Night with Roy festivities.  Before we delve into the season ahead, let’s take one more look back at the 2009 National Champions.

Okay 2010 Heels, your title defense begins now.
