    No excuses. Just the facts. Do not say the Tar Heels came out flat and with a hangover from the Georgia Tech game. If that’s the case on a beautiful Parents’ Weekend in front of the season’s first sellout crowd, we have the wrong players or the wrong coaches. We have the right coaches who […]

    Chansky: Three-Game Season

    September 27, 2013 at 6:00 am

    Coaches like to say “play ‘em one at a time.” But, truth is, if the Tar Heels don’t beat East Carolina Saturday, their season is going down the tubes. At least the kind of season we had all hoped for. At 1-2, Carolina has lost where it was expected to lose. Sure, without a fumbled […]

    Photo Courtesy of UNC Athletics The almost-ready-for-primetime Tar Heels were at the crossroads of the game and most likely their chances to win the ACC championship.

    Chansky: Cock-Shocked

    August 31, 2013 at 6:35 am

    How ironic that lightning bolts in the sky is the background theme on Carolina’s football media guide and schedule cards for 2013. Lightning pretty much ended the Tar Heels’ much-anticipated national exposure Thursday night. When the threat of severe thunder storms (that eventually arrived) forced a 90-minute delay in the season opener at South Carolina, […]

    Chansky: The New Rules

    August 24, 2013 at 11:14 pm

They were all made with the hope of enhancing player safety. The biggest changes are to further protect players from getting hit in a “defenseless position.” Clearly, […]
