Tar Heel Bred Tar Heel Dead

I'll make itBlack Falcon

That is all.

Dex just guaranteed victory against Dook on Saturday. Here’s what he said.

I think that on Saturday we’re going to win. I know we’re going to win on Saturday. I just have a lot of confidence in myself and in my team, also. So if everybody has the same attitude I have, then we’re definitely going to win.

You gotta love that swagger. But at the same time, let’s hope this guarantee works out better than the Jets saying last summer they were going to win the Super Bowl.

Yes, we outrebounded the Seminoles, as expected, but what really has to jump out at you (more…)

  • Whoa. Harrison Barnes just has no fear. None.
  • Derwin Kitchen has gone to so many schools in his college career, he must be 32 years old.
  • John Henson once again played with attitude, glowering at FSU on dunks and talking trash. Loved it.
  • On that note, we take back all the “John Henson weighs less than a…” jokes we’ve ever made. He plays like a man inside.
  • What militia (more…)

With Chris Singleton out for the rest of the year for the ‘Noles, their starting lineup lacks something… (more…)

Man, if Carolina loses one more player, they’re going to have to start recruiting fans from the stands to suit up. “Would the lucky person sitting in Section 110, Row U, seat 8, come on down!”

The athletic department just announced that Bullock tore his lateral meniscus in the Maryland game and will undergo surgery. He’s out until the fall.

This appears to be the same knee he hurt in high school, so all around, not good news.

The best vs. the worst

March 1, 2011

Carolina leads the ACC is one major statistical category and is last in the league in another. Any guesses? (more…)

Party like it’s 1997?

March 1, 2011

We were thinking the other day about some of the similarities between this year’s team and 1997. That team started out 0-3 in the conference and looked to be just muddling along. Until Dean Smith inserted a freshman point guard into the starting lineup – Eduardo Enrique Cota. From that moment on, the Heels came together and won 18 in a row all the way to the Final Four.

And it case you forgot how good Ed Cota was, peep this:

To quote Pink Floyd, run like hell!
Check out this amazing stat. When the Heels get 10 or more fast break points in a game this season, they’re 11-0. Even last year when the team stunk up the court, Carolina was 13-2 when scoring 10 or more points on the break.

So basically the team needs to make like the Road Runner and keep tearing up the hardwood. With Kendall Marshall at the helm, getting easy buckets sure seems a lot easier. His head-ahead passes have already become his signature, and they lead to a couple baskets per game.
