    BobLee Says: So I sez to Swofford, “John you ought to…”

    November 25, 2013 at 10:56 am

    The Broadcasting Hall of Fame already has it on display. Known simply as “BobLee & some guy named Art Interview The Commish,” our Good Sports’ 30-minutes with ACC Major Domo John Swofford this past Saturday is now available. The FireDumbOlRoy Rally originally scheduled for McCorkle Place at 3 PM Sunday has been indefinitely postponed. A […]

    BobLee Says: Cheering for “Them”???

    November 19, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Oh, I don’t know. Maybe I’m simply a much better human being than the average slack-jawed, goggle-eyed, spittle-spewing schlub that follows sports. I prefer to think I’m not alone in being able to cheer unabashedly for the “them” when “them” are supposedly hated rivals. Whatever. I was cheering for Kindly David Cutcliffe and his Wally […]

  • BobLee Says: “You Guys Have Too Much Fun!”

    November 11, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    I’ve “done radio” long enough to know that scorners and critics are never shy but “attaboys” are often as rare as a Clemson basketball win in Chapel Hill. So I was SHOCKED this past Saturday to have FOUR different listeners take time to tell me how much they enjoy The Good Sports pre-game show that […]

    BobLee Says: “FIRE FEDO…?” Whoa, Not So Fast!

    November 4, 2013 at 10:34 am

    Ever since halftime of that ECU nightmare back in September, the long knives of the Tar Heel Lunatic Fringe have been poised to disembowel Mother Fedora’s son Larry, hesitating a second or two to behead Def Coord Vic Koenning as an appetizer. STOP THE MADNESS!!! NOTE: Larry Fedora’s job as UNC’s Head Football Coach has […]

    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 Thursday

    October 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 Consequences

    October 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 Rings

    September 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” […]
