    Art’s Angle: Save The Date

    October 4, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    Write down the date October 3, 2015. It may mark the official turnaround for Carolina Football, not only in the Larry Fedora era but possibly all time. Remember, Florida State was once a women’s college before it went coed and began playing football. Somewhere in there was a game like the Tar Heels’ remarkable comeback […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Larry Brown Does It Again

    September 30, 2015 at 11:31 am

    Thank you, Larry Brown, for showing us what academic fraud really is. Some people are waiting for me to blast my old friend Larry Brown after his third NCAA probation was announced Tuesday. And I won’t disappoint them. Larry Brown has now coached three major college basketball programs and will have left all of them […]

    Chansky’s notebook: Well-Played Argyle

    September 17, 2015 at 8:32 am

    The argyle look. Do we like it in football? Until the last few years, argyle was synonymous with Carolina Basketball because Chapel Hill native and fashion designer Alexander Julian made it part of Tar Heel hoops when he redesigned their uniforms back in 1992. Current assistant coach Hubert Davis, then a shooting star for UNC, […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Cathartic Saturday

    September 14, 2015 at 8:47 am

    The Tar Heels had no choice . . . but to kick some butt. It was going to be a long nine days, in fact a long 29 days before Carolina had a chance to prove it’s a better football team than it showed in Charlotte while losing to South Carolina on September 3. Everyone […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Charter Member

    September 10, 2015 at 8:31 am

    Perfect. John Thompson is the first Dean Smith Award winner. Dean Smith’s relationship went back to John Thompson’s days as a high school coach at St. Anthony’s in the nation’s capital.  Thompson sent his adopted son, Donald Washington, to play for Smith and the Tar Heels as the third African- American in the UNC program […]

    Art’s Angle: BIG PLAYS, BAD PLAYS

    September 4, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    CHARLOTTE – You think Carolina may someday go out and just play football up to its full capabilities? Not that the Tar Heels are world beaters, clearly they are not, but the performance Thursday night considering the circumstances was totally depressing. Ten starters back on an offense that runs up and down the field, averaging […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: From Good to GREAT?

    September 2, 2015 at 8:07 am

    The Tar Heels can make a good season GREAT by beating South Carolina. Of course it’s a 12-game schedule and of course it’s too early to say one game can make or break Carolina’s 2015 team. But the opener against South Carolina Thursday night in Charlotte can certainly springboard the Tar Heels to a great […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Love Affair at the Wyndham

    August 24, 2015 at 8:03 am

    The Wyndham championship still had a perfect ending. The first appearance of Tiger Woods at the Wyndham championship had record crowds showing up at Sedgefield Country Club since Thursday. And Woods had them at hello when he shot a first-round 64 and was still in striking distance going into Sunday’s final round. Tiger had to […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Vicious Cycle Continues

    August 17, 2015 at 7:55 am

    Will the Wainstein Report ever go away? Not looking like it. For the media and all those ABC fans, the Wainstein Report is the gift that keeps on giving. That one last independent probe into the academic scandal, which the Board of Governors and Chancellor believed we needed, traded transparency for protection of the university’s […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: A Fair Call by the Coach

    August 10, 2015 at 9:08 am

    This is today’s Art Chansky’s Sports Notebook as heard on 97.9 WCHL. You can listen to previous Sports Notebooks here. Larry Fedora is a stand up guy. Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight! I love Larry Fedora being UNC’s football coach, and have thought that since an old friend Fedora used to work for […]
