At Least Two Tar Heels Had a Good Weekend

Amid UNC falling to pieces at FSU and T.J. Yates’ less than stellar effort against Baltimore in the AFC Divisional Playoff game(though overall, I think Yates showed promise in his stint as a starter) there were two Tar Heels who had outstanding weekends.

Former UNC WR Hakeem Nicks continued his beast mode playoff performance from [...]

Will The NCAA Announce UNC’s Penalties Next Week?

The last shoe to drop. After over sixteen months of reading tweets, reading between the lines on press releases, looking at notices of allegations from UNC as well as other schools, listening to the incessant stream of crap flowing from the ABC contingent and spending way too much time thinking about the travel habits of [...]

UNC-Miami Game Thread

The Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: Missouri

Well, wasn’t that special?

I tried to share THF’s optimism in the game preview that UNC would want to finish this trying season on a strong note for interim coach Everett Withers and perform well in a de facto tryout for new coach Larry Fedora. Instead, Tar Heel Nation’s worst fears were realized when, after [...]

Missouri 41 UNC 24

Call me weird, but for some reason this best illustrates how the Butch Davis Era ended tonight in Shreveport.
