  • Art’s Angle: Hang On, It’s Almost Over

    June 5, 2015 at 11:46 am

    After reading the long-awaited Notice of Allegations, one has to wonder what took the NCAA so damn long. Sure, UNC has to treat it with the utmost respect because at the end of this endless journey, eight hardly impartial randomly picked peers from a pool of 24 will make up the Committee of Infractions and mete out […]

  • Art’s Angle: Why The Wait?

    June 3, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Maybe they’ve run out of Sharpies at UNC. You know, the thick black markers used when names and other private information are redacted from documents before they are released to the public. Why else would it be taking Carol Folt and Bubba Cunningham so long to release a “publishable” version of the NOA to the […]

  • Chansky: UNC ‘Happy’ with Notice of Allegations

    May 22, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    UNC received its long-awaited Notice of Allegations from the NCAA Friday, and all indications are that Carolina is “happy” with what that NOA says.

  • Art’s Angle: Best Of Coach Gut

    May 15, 2015 at 2:05 pm

    The best profile ever on Bill Guthridge was in the 1995-96 issue of our annual Carolina Court magazine series, written with depth and humor and insight by Lee Pace. It was a long, 13-page story that you could not put down, start to finish. It began with a few Guthridge-isms, such as a typical exchange […]

  • Art’s Angle: Sulaimon From Duke To UNC?

    May 5, 2015 at 11:59 am

    You know, if he wanted to, Carolina wanted him and Duke didn’t object, Rasheed Sulaimon could play for the Tar Heels next season. And, when you think about it, that would make for a pretty cool story and another chapter in the closest rivalry in college basketball. Sulaimon wouldn’t even have to move from his […]

  • Art’s Angle: The Show Goes On

    April 28, 2015 at 11:27 am

    Losing Brandon Ingram is a tough blow for Carolina basketball but certainly not a fatal one. That outcome is more in the hands of the NCAA, which has dragged out this investigation for so long that the Tar Heels have already suffered a de facto penalty of losing an entire recruiting year. What could the […]

  • Art’s Angle: Carolina-Duke Update

    April 8, 2015 at 9:11 am

    So you think the rivalry is still ebbing and flowing, eh? Duke has now won two national championships since Carolina’s last in 2009. After that 2009 season, Tar Heels could have said the same: we have won two national championships since Duke’s last in 2001. Somehow, it seems a stretch to say (or believe) that […]

  • Art’s Angle: More Talent, Toughness Needed  

    March 29, 2015 at 11:00 pm

    LOS ANGELES — The Tar Heels made the big stage of the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in three years, but that stage turned out to be too big for them. Teams that live to play again are teams that are talented enough and, more importantly, tough enough to make the critical plays when […]

  • Art’s Angle: Tar Heels Not The Stars

    March 26, 2015 at 9:56 am

    LOS ANGELES – The Tar Heels are here, looking happy and healthy and apparently okay with not being the center of attention at the West Regional Sweet Sixteen. Those cheese heads from Wisconsin have the same swagger UNC used to carry at these events, with big man Frank Kaminsky the literal center of attention. His […]

  • Art’s Angle: Game Of Runs

    March 16, 2015 at 9:45 am

    What just happened? While all the talk is about Notre Dame’s 26-3 second-half run, the ACC Tournament championship game really turned on the first 11 unanswered points in less than 90 seconds that sent the Irish from eight down to three up. It left a spent Carolina team running on fumes and completed a collapse […]
