Though the Irish tried to give it away, this has to be one of Mike Brey's best regular-season victories at ND as it is no small feat to win at the Dean Dome. Notes from tonight's 71-70 victory at Carolina: FIRST WIN EVER IN Chapel Hill! --- Notre Dame (15-1) has 15 wins in its first 16 games of a season for the first time since the 1973-74 campaign when that Irish squad started 24-1 ... the 15 victories equals Notre Dame's win total from last season. -- The Fighting Irish are 3-0 in conference play (BIG EAST & ACC) for the first time ever. -- Notre Dame upped its win streak to 11 games, which is the longest for the Irish since they won 12 straight during the 2012-13 season (Nov. 17, 2012-Jan. 7, 2013). -- Tonight was the 23rd meeting all-time between Notre Dame and North Carolina and the third as ACC counterparts ... this was Notre Dame's first win in Chapel Hill ... the Irish now are 1-3 all-time at North Carolina ... the Tar Heels had won five straight versus the Irish prior to tonight ... this was Notr ...

North Carolina players caused extensive damage to Duke's visiting locker room at Wallace Wade Stadium by spray painting after their 45-20 win over the Blue Devils last week. Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora called to apologize to Duke coach David Cutcliffe the day after Thursday's game, while North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham apologized to Duke counterpart Kevin White. As first reported in the (Durham) Herald-Sun, North Carolina will pay for the thousands of dollars in damage to the walls and carpet in the locker room, located inside Duke's practice facility. After North Carolina won -- its first triumph in the heated rivalry since 2011 -- players gathered on the field to spray paint the Victory Bell trophy Carolina Blue, as is customary. But as they took the bell into the locker room, they continued to spray paint, leaving the damage. Fedora and Cunningham issued a joint statement through the school: "We would like to apologize to the Duke Football program and Duke University for some inappro ...

Justin Durant just wanted to go to college. Football was a way to get there. According to his father, Justin was not even the most famous football-playing Durant to come out of their hometown of Florence, S.C. “Justin’s older brother, Darian, is a legendary athlete around here. Justin kind of grew up in his brother’s shadow,” said Israel Durant about his two sons. Darian Durant is 3 years older than his little brother. A star quarterback at Wilson High School in Florence, Darian was flooded with college offers. He accepted a scholarship to the University of North Carolina, where he played for four years and set five Tar Heels school records: completion percentage, touchdowns, passing yards, completions and total offense. Before he left, Darian was the only player in school history to throw for more than 8,000 yards and post more than 9,000 yards of total offense. Darian had a tryout with the Baltimore Ravens and spent time on the team’s practice squad, but was later released. He eventually got a ...

I was in graduate school at UNC in 1965, and I saw the following event. Jan. 7, 1965 Perhaps the lowest moment for the coach who would go on to win the most games in College Basketball history comes shortly after midnight as the Tar Heels return to the North Carolina campus after last night's 107-85 loss at Wake Forest, their fourth consecutive defeat. As the team bus pulls up in front of Woollen Gym, Dean Smith and his 6-6 team see about 100 students across the street. Other students are leaning out of their windows. In front of the gym, a dummy is hanging from a noose. "Look, they're hanging you in effigy," says assistant coach Ken Rosemond to Smith. The fourth-year coach stares straight ahead, not displaying any emotion. "I could tell it was me because of its long nose," Smith will write later. After speaking to his team about that day's upcoming practice, Smith walks to his car. His players are furious. Billy Cunningham, North Carolina's star player, and Billy Galantai bolt from the bus and rip down t ...
Angelo Di Carlo: The Irish men's basketball team finishes the regular season with a 15-15 record after a 63-61 loss at North Carolina tonight. It was the 12th straight win for the Tar Heels, who led by 14 points at halftime before Notre Dame went on a big run to start the 2nd half to take the lead. The Irish weren't able to hang on, suffering the loss in the regular season finale.
North Carolina beats NC State in OT on a Buzzer Beater. Buffalo Sabres beat Boston in OT. Great night for my teams. Too bad the OTs were at the same time. Way to go Tar Heels and Sabres. And especially nice to win against a Boston team.
PROUD TO BE A Tar Heel: The word Tar Heel (or, Tarheel) is the nickname given to someone who is a native or resident of North Carolina, the Tar Heel State. The term allegedly comes from the Colonial Era in which tar was one of North Carolina's major products. It came from the workers who walked through the forrest accumulating the tar on their shoes. No way you can be from NC and not love the Tar Heels, it's our history!

Dear Friends, Romans, and countrymen, Tonight is a great night to be able to say I graduated from the hallowed halls of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill! We may have our humble moments and hear others drone on about the greatness of Duke et.al., but if you like College Basketball... tonight was a night of enchantment for us Tar Heels! We won hands down and I am still wearing the victor's laurels! Love you, Roy Williams. I wish I had the second half of the Duke-Carolina game on tape. After being doggedly behind much of first half and part of the second...Carolina came alive and sent those Blue Devils back down that eight miles to Durham with their forked tails between their legs! Victory is so sweet after all the hassle we have endured over the past few weeks. As you can see I am still the same shy, timid, bashful basketball fan you have come to know... ye these many years. If you don't like Carolina please do not write me anything nasty...be a good sport. Hugs and Happiness to all.
I think this reporter for USA Today covered the game rather precisely. Our Tar Heel boys have been lousy at the Free Throw line all season. When Nate Britt hit those last 2 foul shots and made the score 70, I wanted to hug him. Our defense was really good. USA TODAY Sports breaks down Thursday's big College Basketball showdown. HOW THE Tar HeelS WON: After an eight-day wait, the first Duke-North Carolina matchup of the year didn't disappoint. North Carolina overcame an 11-point second-half deficit to beat No. 6 Duke, 74-66, sparking a rare court-storming scene at North Carolina. BOX SCORE: Tar Heels 74, Blue Devils 66 BUBBLE TRACKER: Borderline teams breakdown Duke ranks second nationally in offensive efficiency and third in three-point shooting percentage.

FSU leads North Carolina 22-12. This sums up the first 12 minutes for the Tar Heels:
Battalion, I am not a weather god nor do I play one on TV. I will admit the forecasts are ominous but I will do everything in my power to get there with the only exception of leaving my family here without power. That being said the importance of this weekend is obvious. But I would like to address the Battalion in case weather does not permit full participation. This Battalion is being formed in response to the lack of leadership in the artillery community. For years there has been a " go there and stay and don't bother us " attitude toward artillery that we are seeking to change. Every battery in this Battalion was selected because they are leaders among those who don't care to our extent. Every battery here is a leader. What's more special is that this Battalion are a Band of Brothers from North Carolina, we ARE Tar Heels. We are, in a Latin phrase " Primus Inter Paves", First Among Equals.

North Carolina has gone from bipolar to simply disappointing
Heckendorf Named A-State Tight Ends Coach and Recruiting Coordinator JONESBORO, Ark. (1/13/14) – Arkansas State head football coach Blake Anderson has announced another addition to the Red Wolves’ coaching staff, naming Keith Heckendorf the team’s tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator. Heckendorf comes to Arkansas State after serving in an offensive quality control position at North Carolina the last three seasons, including the 2012 and 2013 campaigns when he worked on the same staff as Anderson under Head Coach Larry Fedora. The Tar Heels produced three winning records, an Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division championship in 2012 and a victory over Cincinnati in the 2013 Belk Bowl during Heckendorf’s tenure at the school. During his three seasons at UNC, Heckendorf worked with players such as quarterbacks Bryn Renner and Marquise Williams. Prior to joining North Carolina, Heckendorf was Western Carolina’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2008-10. During his three . ...

Notre Dame tops Rutgers in Pinstripe Bowl: Kyle Brindza kicked five field goals for the Fighting Irish (9-4), who completed their follow-up season to last year's run to the National Championship game a long way from the BCS - facing a two-touchdown underdog that was trying to avoid a losing record. Notre Dame's TJ Jones scored on an 8-yard run in the first quarter, and Rutgers' Brandon Coleman answered with a 14-yard touchdown catch soon after. T.J. Logan returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown, and Ryan Switzer scored on an 86-yard punt return to help North Carolina beat Cincinnati in Charlotte, N.C., for its first Belk Bowl victory in four attempts. Romar Morris scored on two short touchdown runs, and Jack Tabb caught a touchdown pass as the Tar Heels closed the season by winning six of their final seven games. Bridgewater, projected to be a top NFL draft pick if he comes out this summer, set a school record with 31 touchdown passes this season.
North Carolina's Ryan Switzer ties NCAA record with his fifth punt return TD of season in Tar Heels' Belk Bowl win:
Sport: NCAAF Market: Cincinnati @ North Carolina Pick: North Carolina – 2 ½ points Odds: $1.89 Agency: Centrebet Wager: 3 units Game Time: 7:20am AEDT Analysis: The North Carolina Tar Heels and Cincinnati Bearcats will do battle in the Belk Bowl on Saturday. It's been a tale of two seasons for a North Carolina team that brings a 6-6 record into the Belk Bowl. While the team started the year 1-5, they figured things out as the season went on and ended hot, winning five of their final six games. The Tar Heels really figured things out on offense over the course of that streak, scoring 40.8 points per game. Meanwhile, Cincinnati enjoyed a cushy scheduled in the American and still ended on a losing note, dropping their final game of the season against Louisville. Backup quarterback Marquise Williams has filled in admirably for the Tar Heels since taking over for starter Bryn Renner, helping the team to wins in three of their final four games of the regular year. He'll have top tight end Eric Ebron bringing ...

North Carolina has sent letters of ''permanent disassociation'' to former Tar Heels football players Marvin Austin, Greg Little and Robert Quinn for NCAA violations that led to criminal charges against five people for violating the state's sports agent law.
UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- North Carolina coach Roy Williams walked over to his players huddled in a circle and jumping after their 93-84 win over No. 3 Louisville on Sunday at Mohegan Sun Arena. The 63-year-old cracked a smile and disappeared into the blue, his shiny white top barely visible, as he hopped, jumped and bumped into the players. Williams broke from the pack and gave a salute to the fans before the team ran off, hauling the Hall of Fame Tip-Off championship trophy to their locker room. The No. 24 Tar Heels haven’t had a November win that warranted such an impromptu celebration in a while. Just one week ago, the Heels’ loss to Belmont was just their second nonconference home defeat during Williams’ tenure. The program has also been carrying an albatross of uncertainty while awaiting a final judgment on the status of P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald. That’s why a little celebration was in order. Carolina needed this one. “Since June 5th it’s not been a very pleasant time -- it’s been p ...
Chapel Hill, N.C. -- Marquise Williams threw five first-half touchdown passes and T.J. Logan scored four touchdowns to help North Carolina to a record-setting 80-20 victory over Old Dominion on Saturday. The Tar Heels set all-time records for points and touchdowns by the midpoint of the third quarter, and Williams set the single-game record for total yards on the Tar Heels' fourth snap of the second half. Just two of North Carolina's 11 TDs came on possessions longer than 1 minute, 44 seconds. By mutual agreement of the coaches, the fourth quarter was shortened from 15 minutes to 10. Williams finished 20 of 27 passing for 409 yards and rushed for 60 more, helping North Carolina to a school-record 721 yards. Williams tied the UNC mark for passing touchdowns and was third in single-game total yards by halftime. The point total was the second-most in ACC history, surpassed only by Clemson's 82 in 1981 against Wake Forest. The Tar Heels (6-5) became bowl-eligible with their fifth consecutive victory, their lo ...

Great College Football game tonight in Chapel Hill, NC, at beautiful Kenan Stadium! Excellent job by the Miami Hurricanes overcoming injuries of two of their solid offensive players and three interceptions to get the come-from-behind win on the road against North Carolina. On that game-winning drive, the players and coaches looked so calm and cool! While the Canes aren't back to being top five material just yet, they definitely continue to make serious progress in year three under Coach Al Golden. And, with the improvement and the way they are recruiting, there is no reason not to think even better days are around the corner. As for UNC, while they aren't having a great season, that was a good performance from them. Ooh, that final play was CLOSE! I think they are still feeling the effects from what happened a few years ago. Larry Fedora will do a nice job. I still think that the Tar Heels are a sleeping powerful program with all that they have to offer recruits.
Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina: Hokies’ offense gets going early in win over Tar Heels
Virginia Tech 27 North Carolina 17 - The loss was the 3rd straight for the UNC Tar Heels (1-4, 0-2)
North Carolina and Roy Williams have dealt with plenty recently, but help is on the way for the Tar Heels:
The Army of Northern Virginia invaded Pennsylvania in the summer of 1863 with a force of approximately 70,000 men. Of that number, over twenty percent of those soldiers hailed from North Carolina. More than 4,000 Tar Heels were killed or wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg totaling more than twenty-five percent of the estimated Confederate casualties.[1]     “Extract of a letter from Capt. J.J. Young, of Wake County, Quartermaster 26th Regiment, N.C.

H[enry] K. Burgwyn, who was killed nobly fighting for his country, July 1st, 1863. He was shot through both lungs and died an easy death.

His loss is great—more than any of us can imagine—to his country. To me it ...
The GOP ran on JOBS. JOBS, JOBS, but have done precious little to create a conducive environment for JOB CREATION. Instead, Tar Heels get the equivalent of policy and legislative "castor oil", "three card monte", with an oily dash of "Snidely Whiplash". They are damaging the Tar Heel brand faster than George W. Bush squandered international good will after 9-11. The extreme GOP has a plan and it's in plain view: ignore reasonable protections to the air we breathe and water we drink; consistently invoke a patriarchal legislative mandate and push legislation that is adverse to women; and finally have no jobs program to get North Carolina working again. It's is ironic that this latest affront is buried in a bill on "sharia law" because the extremists appear to have more in common with an "internal Taliban" in policy and practice than a deliberative legislative body.

Curry hit his first seven shots during Duke's torrid start, helping the Blue Devils cruise to a 69-53 victory Saturday night in a game that was never in doubt. Curry finished with 20 points, while Plumlee had his best performance in a month with 23 points and 13 rebounds. That duo provided Duke (27-4, 14-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) all the punch it needed to earn a season sweep of the Tar Heels. "You want to be playing at your best going into the tournament and you can't afford a loss at this point in the season where you're questioning your lineups and what your identity is,'' Plumlee said. "It was the kind of wi ...
Duke’s dominant ACC 69-53 victory against North Carolina on Saturday night might been expected in the middle of February, when the Blue Devils and Tar Heels played for the first time in Durham in Cameron Indoor Stadium. But it wasn’t expected now. Not at the Smith Center.

UK recruiting: Wiggins still mum on college choice The recruitment of High School basketball star Andrew Wiggins is finally nearing its conclusion, but his destination remains as unclear as ever. The No. 1 prep player in the country plans to arrive in Lexington on Wednesday morning for his official visit to Kentucky. Next week will bring visits to Kansas and North Carolina. And then comes decision time, when Wiggins will choose either the Wildcats, Jayhawks, Tar Heels or Florida State, which he visited earlier in the season. Wiggins is already familiar with Kentucky. The 6-foot-8 senior forward from Toronto was in Rupp Arena last season for Big Blue Madness and... ~SportsMan

The 5 Worst Decisions in Sports History (Readers Digest) 1 - 1919 - Red Sox sells Babe Ruth to Yankees and he leads them to 4 World Series appearences. Red Sox waits 86 years for their next one. 2 - 1968 - The Heidi movie takes over the Jets / Raiders game -- Oakland scored twice in the last minutes to come from behind and win while people watched the movie about the littlw Swiss orphan girl. 3 - 1993 - Michigan's Chris Webber calls time-out with 11 seconds left and down 73-71 -- but they had no time outs left. THE University of North Carolina -- my Tar Heels! - win the National Championship 77-71. No little Swiss orphan girls (and there was also the game where Fred Brown passed to James Worthy and the Tar Heels win the 1982 NCAA Championship). 4 - 1993 - Michael Jordan (UNC) quits The Chicago Bulls and went to play baseball in Birmingham. (I mean, really, Michael?) 5 - 2010 - LeBron hosts a one-hour TV special on his decision to join the Miami Heat. He took a real PR beating on that one, deservedly. Revi ...
North Carolina coach Roy Williams waited until mid-February to shorten his bench and rely largely on a small lineup. It remains to be seen whether it was a short-term move or something the Tar Heels will use through the final weeks of the season.

Duke Basketball on Path to No. 1 Seed in NCAA Tourney After Win over UNC By Timothy Rapp (Featured Columnist) on February 14, 2013 The Duke Blue Devils have absolutely no reason to miss out on a No. 1 seed this season in the NCAA tournament. After beating North Carolina on Wednesday evening, the schedule is quite favorable for the Blue Devils down the stretch. Sure, Duke has a date with No. 3 Miami at home and closes the season by traveling to Chapel Hill to play the Tar Heels once again, but Duke should split those contests at the worst and should win its five other games in the league. From there, all the Blue Devils likely need to do to earn a top seed in the tournament is reach the finals or possibly even semifinals of the ACC tournament. In a year when the league is pretty weak, that shouldn't be too difficult to do. Duke is too talented to suddenly fold down the stretch and blow a golden opportunity. Mason Plumlee is one of the most dominant post players in the country, averaging 18.2 points and 10. ...
To my North Carolina fans. Only those who have lived it and who are there near it can understand the basketball rivalry between the Blue Devils and Tar Heels. My last year at Duke was Coach K's first. Duke went 17-12 that year and then had three loosing seasons in a row. He and Dean Smith had some heated battles over the years and I will say this. Borrow none it is the greatest College Basketball rivalry in the country. Two first class programs run by first class institutions. I was really excited being a kid from Oklahoma to get to attend a school like Duke. I barely got in in the first place. I'm still excited about the rivalry after all these years. While there in Durham I witnessed family's that would not speak to each other game week - split down the middle - one side for Duke the other for UNC. It's just a way of life in North Carolina. I was proud to call North Carolina home for several years and still call it my second home. So if you're reading remarks from Tar Heel fans and you're n ...

Still don't understand how someone from North Carolina, the Tar Heel State, could hate a University of North Carolina, who happen to also be Tar Heels...I don't love and adore Carolina like people who actually have a connection (student, alumni, parent of student, bla bla) and therefore a legit reason to do so, but come on. What about loyalty? Patriotism (kinda)? Traitors you are (maybe too far...nahhh) ...Ok, bed time...

My dear friend Troy McAdam, this one is for you, You came into the Dean Dome and pulled off a W, which no matter what North Carolina team is out there, that is not no simple task. If you recall, it was a great game, 2-3pt leads for both teams, until the last 6 minutes where the inexperience of the Tar Heels proved to be heavy, and the Canes showed how experience and age can prove to be heavy. Coming into this year, I knew UNC wasn't a top 25 ranked team, I knew we had too much youth to even be ranked pre-season and I knew that there was going to be some growing pains this season. Today at 2p.m., we head to South Beach to play a team with a lot of heart, dedication, and a coach who they believe in, but never, EVER count out my Tar Heels. U bet your *** I think they can pull off the upset and this is why: P.J. Hariston is finally feeling the range like he did back in High School, which poses a deadly threat. James McAdoo has posted four double-doubles over his past four games, and averaging 21.5 po ...

Dato Curioso De Michael Jordan!! -THE BILLION DOLLAR (JUMP)MAN: JORDAN 1 RETROSPECTIVE- When Nike signed a rookie named Michael Jordan from North Carolina in 1984, who could have predicted his signature line would become a billion dollar business less than 30 years later? MJ’s background was anything but Nike. Throughout his college years he wore Converse on court with the Tar Heels. The 1984 Olympic team was sponsored by adi and legend has it that Michael wanted to go pro wearing stripes. After listening to Nike’s pitch he was less than impressed by the black and red prototypes which looked like ‘devil colors’. It wasn’t until Mr. and Mrs. Jordan met with Nike executives that he was finally persuaded. Mike was ready to sign with Nike. Jordan’s initial contract was reportedly double what the league’s best players were earning at the time. It was also a huge risk for Nike. Basketball fans witnessed him drain the shot that won the 1982 NCAA finals as a freshman, but he had yet to even compete ...

NCAA Follows SuitThe University of North Carolina rallied to beat the University of Tennessee, 30 to NFL 27, in the 2010 Music NFL City Bowl -- after spiking the ball to stop the clock, while still substituting players in and out of the game. The UNC Tar Heels were penalized, but they kicked a field goal to tie the game and then prevailed in overtime. As a result, the NCAA Rules Committee instituted a 10-second runoff rule that NFL mimics the NFL rule. Known for his reckless behavior on and off the NFL field, Taylor admits to many run-ins with the law. From cocaine NFL abuse to hit-and-run accidents to "patronizing prostitutes" on more than one other occasion, he was no stranger to a darker side of NFL life. He even hired call-girls to visit the opposing team's players the night before a big game, "to tire them out,.   The Colts became the second team to draft two NFL quarterbacks. Earlier on Saturday, the Washington Redskins drafted Kirk Cousins with their first 4th round NFL selection, providing immedi ...
North Carolina: land of the Tar Heels. Home to Charlotte, Raleigh and Cape Hatteras. Has one of the best business climates in the country. The weather is mild during the winter. A fine choice for relocation. Georgia: lots of peaches and trees in this state. Home to Atlanta, Athens and Savannah. Atlanta is one of the most diverse cities in the country. CNN, Delta and Home Depot call ATL home. Once again, a very good business climate. Mild winters a plus. Publix has plenty of stores in GA. So which state will I choose for relocation? It's a doozy.

Here's an interesting rumor picked up by Greg Hall in KC “That’s no comfort to league commissioners and member schools who hear that ACC school North Carolina [where Delany played basketball] and the Big 12′s Kansas are high on the list of possible targets. Is this corner barstool chatter? Doesn’t sound like it. Four BCS conference coaches and administrators I talked to Tuesday said they think the Big Ten is actively hunting for members 15 and 16, and mentioned the Tar Heels and Jayhawks.” Lee Barfknecht, columnist, Omaha World Herald GH: Whoa – this sounds crazy! How wild would it be to see UNC and Kansas bring their big-time basketball programs to the Big 10 – and leave their once-healthy-looking conferences behind? Barfknecht says he confirmed this rumor with four BCS coaches. If that many people are talking about it – why isn’t the Kansas City media on this rumor?
Copy/Paste from AP: LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Leslie McDonald scored 21 points as one of five North Carolina players in double-figures in an easy 95-49 win over Mississippi State on Monday at the Maui Invitational. P.J. Hairston had 18 points in 15 minutes, Reggie Bullock had 16 points, and Dexter Strickland and James McAdoo each scored 10. Roquez Johnson led the Bulldogs with 12 points. The Tar Heels (4-0) scored the game's first nine points and led 29-6 in less than 10 minutes. Mississippi State never came closer than 20 points behind after that. A fade-away 3-pointer from Hairston put UNC up 42 with 5:30 left in the game and the Tar Heels led by at least 40 the rest of the way. Mississippi State (1-2) made just seven shots in the first half and shot 28.3 percent for the game. The Bulldogs made just two 3-pointers. With the outcome clear early, the game became little more than a highlight reel for North Carolina fans, with the Tar Heels seemingly able to score at will. Hairston closed the first half by making ...

North Carolina Tar Heels got committments from Nate Britt and Isaiah Hicks few weeks ago then they just got committment from Kennedy Meeks, center in the country.

Tar Heels for Obama are getting ready to canvass in Chapel Hill!
We're all pretty much aware of how venomous this 2012 election is becoming. It seems EVERYBODY is either pro-Romney and therefore anti-Obama, or the other way around. But this is NOT the first time this has happened, by far. Many of my fellow North Carolina residents who are of age will recall the monumentally down-in-the-dirt, nasty and vicious 1984 U.S. Senate race between former North Carolina Governor Jim Hunt and the late U.S. Senator Jesse A. Helms; "What war did you fight in, Jim?" "Jesse, that makes me mad as fire for you to question my patriotism like that. I was too young for World War II and already married with kids by Vietnam!!" And there was the especially nasty "newspaper" headline; "Jim Hunt is Sissy, Prissy, Girlish and Effeminate". Anyone wish to comment, my fellow Tar Heels?

You can't bash North Carolina for the *** marriage thing cause they have the Tar Heels and Blue Devils!
I'm extremely disappointed in you, North Carolina. You've let me down and I'm afraid I can't see you any more. No more rendezvous on the Outer Banks, no more Tar Heels support.until I get a big old apology.
To me, the Carolina Panthers represent hope. The hope that a North Carolina team can compete in the mighty National Football League. The Atlanta Braves represent consistency. They will always be on T.V., always playing the national pasttime, playing everyday. The Charlotte Bobcats represent.well they just represent basketball in North Carolina. That's about it lol and the Carolina Hurricanes represent upstart, underdog, competing with the big boys, competing with history, competing with the Original Six, represent introducing a new sport to an area that otherwise wouldn't know about it. And the Clemson Tigers represent the color orange, and knocking off the college teams that always win. Southern California, Texas, the SEC, michigan, Ohio State, etc. And the Tar Heels represent my home state, my pride in my state, my pride in having a winner, a nice shade of blue, and always being a dominant team. That's what sports mean to me :)
As if the Tar Heels and Blue Devils didn't give me enough reasons to dislike North Carolina.
In a great victory for the people, in an affirmation of the 10th amendment and in keeping with at least 2,000 yrs of Western Civilization, the good folks of North Carolina passed Amendent 1 to their state consititution, declaring marriage to be union of one man and one woman PERIOD. It tossed so-called 'civil unions' as well and received well over 60% of the vote. Already the law, that statue was subject to some activist judge overruling the people. To overturn Amendment 1 it will take 3/5 of the legislature AND popular consent. (Democrats had control of both state houses, but when they refused to permit this bill to come to the floor the people voted their them out in 2008 and 2010). Good job, Tar Heels!
