Why the UNC Tar Heels Suck

Bare KnucksAnalyst IFebruary 19, 2009

The nation often gets wrapped up in hating the Duke Blue Devils. People tend to overlook their eight-mile neighbor—the UNC Tar Heels. UNC is generally considered the second most-hated team in college basketball.

So, why do we get so hyped to watch the two most-hated teams play? Maybe, it’s because we want to see Tyler Hansbrough get elbowed in the face by Gerald Henderson, and then an ensuing brawl in which a thrown chair is miraculously able to hit Greg Paulus in the face (yeah, I know Greggy didn’t get hit in the face with a chair, but it would have been ridiculous, wouldn’t it?).

The UNC Tar Heels' fans make me sicker than Boston Red Sox fans. They are quick to point the finger at how hated their rival is, but the fact is they’re hated almost as much.

I think that the worst part is maybe, the fact that Michael Jordan went to UNC, making everyone feel like they have a legitimate claim to their UNC fanhood.

I’m sorry, but if you’ve never even been to a UNC game before, or let alone been in the same state as your beloved UNC, then get off the bandwagon please. There’s nothing worse than bandwagon jumpers, especially bandwagon jumpers who talk trash.

If you’re a bandwagon jumper, please, PLEASE sit down in the back and just shut your mouth; you’re along for a ride with no say in where this thing goes.
