Here's Michael Jordan taking the floor at halftime of #DukevsUNC, talking Tar Heel fandom & @TarHeelFootball #wral https://t.co/8TMicCjZp1

Michael Jordan made a rare appearance at his alma mater Saturday night, and he debuted a new catch phrase in the process.

Jordan took the court at halftime during the Duke vs. UNC basketball game to make an announcement.

The big news was that the Tar Heels football team will now be outfitted in Jordan Brand rather than parent company Nike. But it was Jordan's encouraging words toward the end of his speech that stuck out: "The ceiling is the roof. Let's make it happen. Let's keep moving forward."

Not that we're entirely sure what that means...but it's pretty inspiring. We think. The crowd sure seemed to think so.
