Tar Heel Bred Tar Heel Dead

At last night’s game, things nearly got out of hand. And we’re not talking about on the court.

Up in the stands, a Wolfpack fan was waving around a copy of “The Daily Tar Hell,” a hilarious (sarcasm here) parody of The Daily Tar Heel that the State paper produces. Well, depending on who you believe, this person did or didn’t smack Roy Williams’ wife with that paper. Wanda grabbed it out of the fan’s hands and ripped it up, as security came over to sort everything out. No one was apparently ejected.

Let this be a lesson to other opponents. You do not mess with Wanda.

  • John Henson shot 100% from the line. I repeat, John Henson shot 100% from the line.
  • The best moment of the night was Harrison Barnes’ second dunk putback. I’d like to have his scream that followed as my new ringtone.
  • Throughout the game, Raleigh station WRAL constantly promoted its trashy “Sex in Schools” news piece, which had off-camera teen voices saying things like, “Yeah, I think they’re doing it in the bathrooms.” Must be sweeps.
  • If you listened to this week’s podcast episode, you know (more…)

The Golden State big man was just shipped off to the New Jersey Nets ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline. He gets a fresh start and another chance to finally deliver on the potential many thought he had coming out of Carolina. He averaged just 9 minutes for the Warriors this season, scoring just 4.0 points per game.

If nothing else, Wright might serve as a cautionary tale to John Henson, if UNC’s current big man is thinking about bolting for the pros after this season. Don’t do it, John. You could end up in the worst of all places: New Jersey.

Yep, Lawson is the future

Following the Carmelo trade, Ty got the start last night for Denver, playing 38 minutes and racking up 21 points and 7 assists. Raymond Felton, acquired from the Knicks, didn’t play and instead watched from a luxury box. Even shorthanded, the Nuggets beat the Grizzlies 120-107.

That’s the Vegas betting line. Seems generous considering the team’s offensive woes of late and the Wolfpack’s mini-resurgence. Not to say that we won’t win. I’m just surprised Vegas is spotting us that much.

kenpom.com is predicting a 76-70 win for the Heels. Again, 76 points seems awfully generous. But maybe this is the game where we break out of the slump.

Sometimes in sports, fashion just has to go out the window. So for anyone looking to make a statement tonight as they watch Carolina dismantle NC State, there’s this light blue blazer that will basically look silly on you anywhere except inside the Smith Center.

And even then, you’re taking your chances.

But so what? You gotta let your Carolina pride show. Don’t let Sidney be the only one in a horrendous sportscoat. If that happens, UNC will have lost before the team even steps on the court. It’s only $67. You know you want it. You know you need it.

And whatdya know — the team hasn’t missed one yet.

Has it really come to this? At a press conference yesterday, Roy Williams talked — yet again — about Carolina’s shooting woes and what he was going to do differently at practice.  His solution sure seems (more…)
