    Chansky’s Notebook: Barnes’ Brand Gets Big Boost

    July 5, 2016 at 10:20 am

    Harrison Barnes comes out smelling like a rose. When Harrison Barnes left UNC after his sophomore year, he was not unhappy with being a Tar Heel. To the contrary, his two seasons in Chapel Hill gave him the high profile that he said he needed to begin building his personal brand, which is that of […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Anxiety In The Air, Water

    July 1, 2016 at 9:05 am

    Boston feels a little like a sinking ship. I am in my hometown for Fourth of July weekend, and there is a certain edge to everything sports related. The movie “Patriots Day” on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings was shot here and just wrapped, and people are anxious to see how the tragedy is duplicated […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Open letter to Todd Starnes

    June 30, 2016 at 8:45 am

    Dear Mr. Starnes: I must apologize for saying you lied in your column on alleged micro-aggression at UNC and for suggesting that the school publicly call you a moron. At the time, I believed your piece was a spoof on micro-aggression, a term for finite forms of prejudice that has been floating around since a […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: It Must Be The Shoes

    June 29, 2016 at 9:15 am

    There’s no kerfuffle at Carolina, at least about shoes. Todd Starnes is sort of a cross between Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump. Far right, sometimes funny and more obnoxious. Not sure where his last piece came from on, but in his first line he identifies all this at University of North Carolina. The article […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Part Of The Gameplan

    June 28, 2016 at 9:20 am

    The SEC needs a rap sheet more than a scorecard. As the college football season approaches, key athletes all over the Southeastern Conference are driving their coaches, their fans and, yes, their opponents crazy by being in so much trouble no one knows if they will play or not. And in the SEC, guilt or […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Can David Do It?

    June 27, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Some facts and figures about the David vs. Goliath College World Series. Arizona has won the College World Series four times and can tie in-state rival Arizona State with its fifth title this year. Each of the past four times the Wildcats reached the championship game, they left Omaha with the trophy. Arizona’s Jay Johnson […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Worth The Wait

    June 24, 2016 at 9:10 am

    Brice Johnson had to wait out the foreign legion. It all wound up well for Carolina’s Brice Johnson, who was selected – finally – as the 25th pick in the NBA draft by the Los Angeles Clippers. Johnson gets to play with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, coached by Doc Rivers and maybe even live […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: A Second Ty Lawson?

    June 23, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Seventh Woods sounds like the second coming. With all the hoopla over Duke’s next big recruiting class for the coming season, a UNC signee who may be better than all of them has gotten lost in the royal blue publicity. His name is Seventh Woods, a 6-1 point guard from Columbia, South Carolina, who Roy […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: The Boyer Case

    June 22, 2016 at 9:05 am

    The Jackson Boyer settlement trumped soccer. This was going to be about the Copa America soccer match until two things happened. The short-handed U.S. got so outclassed by Lionel Messi and the Argentines that it looked like a UNC women’s game in Anson Dorrance’s early years. You know, when the ball stayed down on the […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Who Wears Short Shorts

    June 21, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Three things went terribly wrong with the U.S. Open. The second year of the U.S. Open golf championship being telecast by Fox was a marked improvement from the network’s bumbling debut at Chambers Bay in 2015. At least Holly Sonders wore respectable clothes while conducting inane interviews in front of the giant digital board. […]
