Thanks so much for the reader praise and kind words, Rollin! Appreciate every bit of it. It's always nice when someone "gets" your articles, haha! Have an awesome weekend man.
No problem, Rollin. It can be tough to keep up with that kind of stuff, especially during this time of year when you have guys declaring for the NBA, players being dismissed and recruits getting ready to enroll in classes. Great slideshow, though. I look forward to reading more of your work soon!
I said the other day in a comment that do we really need another Kansas.UNC again didnt they just play last year - same beacket. I said that the Kansas fans hate Roy and he insulted the team with Hansbrough, Ellington by sitting in the Kansas section with his wife rooting for Kansas the game before they met(If my memory hasn't failed me) a responder called me an idiot because he loves Roy Thank you for making me realize I am correct there will always be bad feelings for Roy yet the committee seems to enjoy it. I love the Heels and have for years. There are 3 other 8 seeds who could have been put there. I think it is really unfair because of the history. Show me anywhere else in the brackets where two schools with this history are constantly put together.
No problem Rollin, I've had enough trouble with that myself! Hope you have a great day too, and I look forward to reading more of your work.
You're welcome, Rollin! Thanks for yet another clean article with excellent content. I was a little nervous at the beginning of ACC play and thought Paige's game was just too limited, but I think he's gaining confidence and starting to show what he can do. As you said, it's a lot easier when you're feeding Tyler Zeller instead of Desmond Hubert. While we won't be bringing home a national title this year, I really do think these guys have the potential to get it together and put on an exciting postseason.
Picking the ACC in the preseason was a nightmare. I was less optimistic because of how much we lost from last year's team, so I had Duke first, NC State second and Carolina sixth. FSU has been much worse than I thought, and Wake Forest has been better than I predicted. Of course, a ton can between now and Selection Sunday.
No problem, Rollin. One fun (and infuriating) part of watching a young team is how unpredictable they are. I think we can learn a lot about this group based on what they do down the stretch.
Go Heels, and keep up the good work!
Hey Rollin. Are you going to write something about the loss to UVA. Not trying to rub it in, just value your observations about what happened. One thing I have noticed about Carolina fans (and may be I am way off base) is that they abandon ship when things aren't going well. I honestly feel like Duke fans are better at sticking together thru thick and thin. Carolina may not have banner year, but they will still be good by year end and will definitely make the NCAA's. The Carolina fanbase needs to stay positive but realistic.
Rollin, you once said that if I needed to share something personal to use your email but I don't see one. I am concerned about this comment to you, "You have made an enemy with your actions sir and you have no idea who I am or what I am capable of. Hope to see you around...." In light of what has occurred in this world lately that is scary, I hope you didn't miss the implication.
McAdoo could really use another season, but I don't have any misgivings that he will come back. Poor choice on his part, I think, though.
