BobLee Says: “No Excuses November”October 28, 2013 at 1:00 pm
In full view of “that oh-so-valuable Boston media market,” the Fighting Fedorians unleashed their first complete game of the year to thump a Flutie-less / Ryan-less bunch of Golden Eagles 34-10. In eye-deal mid-Autumn football-watching weather, the 40,000-ish fans who showed up were able to spread out a bit and enjoy a solid Tar Heel […]
BobLee Says: A Friday Look at Zero Dark ThursdayOctober 18, 2013 at 12:48 pm
In my opinion, Zero Dark Thursday was a very well designed and implemented multi-layered sports marketing promotion. Not saying it was D-Day-ish in its logistics but nothing with that many facets “just happens”. Other than the final three minutes of the game, it appeared to be flawlessly rolled-out. Sincere kudos to BubbaTheRealAD, Sports Promotion Guy […]
BobLee Says: Opinions Without ConsequencesOctober 15, 2013 at 10:31 am
A VERY noticeable change will confront Carolina fans this Thursday night – Zero Dark Thursday. For the very first time in the ever-how-many years of football at UNC, the team will wear all-black uniforms – helmet, jersey & pants with blue numerals and blue accents. Holy Choo Choo – say it ain’t so! The reaction […]
BobLee Says: Is It “Fire or Ice” for UNC Athletics?October 7, 2013 at 12:22 pm
There is an analogy from either Al Capp, Poor Richard or The Venerable Bede that says “Place one hand in a pot of boiling water and the other hand on a block of ice and, on average, you should be quite comfortable”. Huh? For UNC Athletics, the pot of boiling water included Marvin Austin, Greg […]
BobLee Says: Other Than THAT Mrs. Lincoln…September 30, 2013 at 11:12 am
Other than THAT Mrs. Lincoln, how was your Saturday afternoon in Kenan Stadium? Brent’s flag was flying high. The weather was ideal. The UNC uniforms finally weren’t butt-ugly. See, it wasn’t all AWFUL. The skydiver’s chute opened. Ya know that line about “…no shoes…until I met a man who had no feet.” Imagine you’re a […]
BobLee: The Reason For The RingsSeptember 23, 2013 at 8:51 am
Larry Fedora’s decision to give out rings for last season’s unofficial division co-championship was roundly poo-pooed and ridiculed. Most of the poo-pooing from the usual suspects aka “regional rival fan bases”…. yawn. There was ample skepticism from within TarHeelNation too. Like “participation trophies” for little leaguers…. come on, Larry! I haven’t actually asked Larry “why” […]

If you are reading this, you have more than a casual interest in Tar Heel sports; I’m Speaking To YOU – Avid Carolina Fan.
Stuff You Hear On a Shuttle BusSeptember 9, 2013 at 5:56 am
For the past 4-5 years I have used “the shuttle” to get to Kenan Stadium.
How Good Is Good Enough…. for You?September 1, 2013 at 7:47 pm
The package that is “Carolina Football” under the leadership of a quality head coach like Larry Fedora should bring many many thrills to Kenan Stadium.
