    All those jokesters who claim “Roy can’t coach” may have the rethink their theories after Carolina’s stunning comeback win over Virginia Tech Saturday. Unless Williams deserves an “F” for his pre-game pep talk, very little of what went bad for the Tar Heels Saturday can be blamed on the coach. And almost everything that went […]

    Seeing Red in a Sea of Red

    January 27, 2013 at 7:32 am

    By not competing, Carolina committed the cardinal sin of UNC basketball Saturday night at N.C. State. Whether underdog, undermanned or under intense pressure from a crazed crowd, the Tar Heels have rarely not been ready to fight from the opening tip. They weren’t this time, perhaps thinking their sky blue uniforms would settle a red […]

    In the early 1970s, I worked for the Atlanta Constitution and heard a sportscaster named Beau Bock do commentaries on the radio and host what might have been the first sports talk show in America.   Bock was very informative and entertaining in his 2-minute daily diatribe and then he actually fielded phone calls and […]

  • Bye Bye, Big 10 Terps

    January 20, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    Amidst the chaos that has become college athletics, Carolina defeated Maryland Saturday in truly a tale of two halves. The Tar Heels played perhaps their best 20 minutes of basketball to begin the game and ended with perhaps their worst. Depending on when they officially bolt for the Big 10 and the 2014 basketball schedule, […]

  • The Rap On Roy

    January 15, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    There’s an old story about Roy Williams from a coaches’ clinic just after he returned to UNC. Williams was speaking to a couple of hundred of his peers, and the subject was the Carolina fast break.   “Our break is pretty simple,” Williams said. Then he went on to detail how it worked: Sean May […]
