    Tar Heel Game Day 2.0

    September 12, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Saturday brought fans back to a familiar place with a not so familiar face, as the first steps of Coach Fedora’s plan to revolutionize the gameday feeling around Kenan.

  • Swan Song

    And so the curtain draws to a close. As the final seconds ticked off the clock in Kansas City and good ol’ Roy was forced once again to give a congratulatory shake of the hand to his KU replacement, the hardwood Heels took their final bows. But what should we, the audience, make of this […]

  • A First Time (Well, Kinda) For Everything

    March 19, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    Surprising? Unfair? Conspiratorial? These words all probably flashed through the minds of Tar Heel fans across the country when it was revealed on Sunday evening that the UNC had earned an 8-seed and a potential second-round matchup with Kansas in this year’s NCAA Tournament. Many felt that UNC had done enough in beating FSU and […]

  • The World Keeps Turning

    March 12, 2013 at 9:14 am

    So this is heartbreak. Not quite a full 24 hours later and that very distinct emptiness that follows any loss at the hands of the Blue Devils still lingers. Maybe I’m being a tad melodramatic, but then again… no, no I’m not. More than simply another tally in the right-hand column, last night’s game represented […]

  • Finishing Strong

    March 6, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    There are some sports truisms that are undeniably, well, true. Of the many coaching platitudes that I’ve heard over the years, none has stuck out quite like the idea that you must “finish strong.” While applicable to many different games, the phrase has a particular double meaning in the world of college basketball. By using […]

  • Seeing Red

    February 26, 2013 at 5:31 am

    This Saturday morning found me as most have in recent weeks: huddled with my friends in a line outside of the Dean E. Smith center. Congregated under my roommate’s oversized golf umbrella, the half-dozen of us waited beneath a gray Chapel Hill sky and watched as puddles encroached. It was cold and my bed was […]

  • Together We Are Carolina

    February 19, 2013 at 10:57 am

    After getting blown out by 26 against Miami on Sunday, expectations for Wednesday night were low…well, as low as possible for a game against Duke. Rivalry games are special, and no rivalry is more special than Carolina-Duke. The records don’t matter, the rankings don’t matter; nothing really matters except those forty minutes on the court. […]

  • Same Old Song and Dance

    February 11, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    So we find ourselves in a familiar position. Another road contest met with another poor performance by the Tar Heels. But is anyone really surprised at this point? On Saturday the Heels proved once again that they have no idea how to compete for a full 40 minutes away from the friendly confines of the […]

  • #PJBeHurtin

    February 5, 2013 at 9:29 am

    The hashtags started flying like PJ Hairston’s jump shots in Chestnut Hill on Tuesday night. #PJBeShootin #PJBeHittin #PJBeOnFire #PJNeedToBeStartin Hairston was finally blossoming into the player Roy Williams called “the best shooter he has ever recruited” in the first half against Boston College, and seemingly every UNC student with a Twitter was taking notice. Igniting […]

    A Healthy State of Hate in the Triangle

    January 29, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    So it finally happened. For the first time since February of 2007, NC State managed to hand us an L. And while there is some solace to be found in the fact that I haven’t had to witness a loss to State since I was a freshman in high school, Saturday night’s game was still […]
