  • A Season For The Books

    January 7, 2013 at 3:11 am

    All season long Chapelboro.com’s “Hoop It Up” will be republishing select excerpts from Return To The Top on the 20th Anniversary of Dean Smith’s 2nd NCAA title season in 1993. Check back on Monday of each week for the next RTTT. FOREWORD: We are excited to have had such an enjoyable year, one filled with so […]

  • The Skinny Boys

    December 30, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    During the most critical stretch of UNC’s alphabet soup win over UNLV Saturday, the Tar Heels denied the Running Rebels three chances to take back the lead they had held only once briefly earlier in the second half. Thrice the Rebs had the ball down one point and, thrice, the Heels denied them the go-ahead […]

  • The Martin Report

    December 19, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    Former Governor Martin’s report on his independent investigation into academic fraud at UNC is due Thursday, and my educated guess is that it will confirm what we already know and reveal little that we don’t. That’s the outcome UNC must have to finally put this scandal to rest and move on, and any new revelations […]

  • Jeff Lebo Then And Now

    December 12, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    If the UNC administration had been smarter during the sorry summer of 2000, Jeff Lebo very well could have been sitting on the Carolina bench Saturday instead of coaching East Carolina. Of course, it eventually turned out fine when Roy Williams returned in 2003 after he had initially decided to stay at Kansas. Williams has […]

  • The Policy Wonk

    December 5, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    If there is one thing we have learned about Bubba Cunningham in his first year as UNC’s athletic director, it’s that he is a policy wonk. He studies and evaluates situations, comes up with a plan (like his yet-to-be-released strategic plan for the athletic department) and then sticks to it like a man who knows […]

  • Abuzz About Basketball?

    November 30, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    It’s not unusual for Chapel Hill to be abuzz this time of year over several local sports teams. It is, however, weird that Carolina Basketball is not one of them. UNC field hockey played for yet another national championship two weeks ago, losing to Princeton 3-2. The Tar Heel men’s soccer team is a solid […]

  • Heels Good Bet, Sort Of

    November 25, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    LAS VEGAS – Well, when in Vegas . . . where gambling is legal. After finishing our final Good Sports show on WCHL before the Maryland-Carolina game, I was intending to go to the hotel sports book and bet on the Tar Heels to cover the 24.5 point spread by which they were favored to […]

  • Huddle Up, As Season Ends

    November 22, 2012 at 7:15 am

    With the 2012 Carolina football season drawing to a close, this is the last week of Chapelboro’s Huddle Up With The Heels. It has been a pleasure to contribute to this diverse special sports section, which was invented to inform, entertain and educate UNC fans of all ages.   Appropriate for today, we are most […]

  • You Left Us Defenseless

    November 11, 2012 at 4:05 am

    Carolina had no defense for what Georgia Tech did Saturday. The Tar Heels, in fact, gave up nine more points than their basketball brethren did in THAT season opener Friday night (a 76-59 win over Gardner Webb). In losing to the nearly-defenseless (themselves) Yellow Jackets, 68-50, Larry Fedora’s first UNC football team has much less […]
